Beginning with a list

Last night we sat in the beer garden of our local, pad open, pens poised and pints in hand. We had decided finally that it was time to break ground on the none-wedding plans and we decided on the biggest problem that all pre-married couples face and that it the invite list. We aren’t having…

The Stiff Upper Lip

The last few days have found me in a whole big mixed up bag of emotions you know the sort, where you drink wine and listen to Natasha Beddingfield and cry at the weddings of strangers. Really what I needed to do in the words of my Gran was “Grow a pair and man up”…

Take another little piece of my heart

I am a hopeless romantic; there I have said it, phew I feel much better for it. I see love in everything that I do and everywhere that I go. I like to see couples dining together when I am at work, and when I am walking the dog I love to see the animals…

A time to say goodbye

It is a sad day at Partridge Farm Cottage; I found two of my ducks had died it was the two Hen (female) ducks that had died leaving Titus my Drake a widower twice over in the same night. The morning I found him, with his beak ruffling the feathers of Penny my Muscovy as…

I think I want to Marry you!

I got to thinking about marriage whilst driving into work (I was listening to Marry You on the Glee soundtrack) I do think that I would one day like to get married, to take those vows that bind you and your loved one together forever. But how long is forever? Some marriages last days, some…

Love Letters Straight from your heart

Friends,

We let our friends down all the time, whether we mean to or not, it can be something that we do with intention or we can be completely oblivious to it. I recently forgot to call a friend at the time I said I would try to call, and it bothered me and obviously bothered…

Serendipity

I watched An Affair to Remember last night, and forgot how much I love the idea of fate and how it can get in the way or create beautiful things. It is so much a case in live of being in the right place at the right time or even at the wrong place at…

It’s just a little crush,

Do you remember your first crush? How innocent, how exciting and how you felt when they were on TV, or gracing the cover of Smash Hits? Well I have that feeling right now, yes me a 32 year old man. Okay so my crush is not so innocent, nor as easy as fancying Cindy Crawford…
