He's dating and I'm so glad.
Then, my Boo took me for a nice romantic supper at one of our favourite restaurants. She looked SO handsome in her black velvet dinner jacket and smart shirt & trousers. At dinner she pulled out a paper puzzle that she'd made earlier and during the meal she'd pull it out and ask me to choose a number to reveal one of 12 surprises to come later that night. We were back home before 10. Oh boy! Ahem. Ive said it before and Ill say it again I'M A VERY LUCKY WOMAN. Oh Boo, you make me weak at the knees!
I've so much to be thankful for. I can't remember feeling this positive about a coming year. I think 2009 is going to be great.
A Very Happy New Year to you all.
