The Boy will be landing shortly ready to move in with me- so ridiculously excited!! Have no idea why I didn’t book the day of work though- it’s excruciating being here and counting down!
My Valentine’s flowers are just starting to hit their stride- looking BEAUTIFUL!!
A quick update to reassure you that I’m still alive and kicking! I got back from America on Sunday after visiting with the boy and his folks (and may have possibly got a little bit engaged), and then fell straight into my new job on Monday morning. The drawback of this is no more Tumblr during the day (well, mainly). The upside is flexitime and more money, so hurrah!
We got little to no knitting or crafting done over Christmas and the New Year, but hopefully once things settle down a bit and I’m back on a semi-normal timetable and sleep cycle it will be all good to go again :D
Why the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger: The Chinese give a beautiful explanation to this. The thumb represents your parents. The index finger represents your siblings. The middle finger represents yourself. The ring finger represents your life partner. The little finger/pinky represents your children. Hold your hands together like the picture. Join your middle fingers back-to-back, and the remaining fingers tip-to-tip. Now, try to separate your thumbs. They will separate because your parents are not destined to live with you forever. Rejoin your thumbs and separate your index fingers. They will separate because your siblings will have their own families and lead their own lives.

Rejoin your little fingers/pinkies and try to separate your ring finger. They will not be able to separate because your life partner is meant to be with you throughout your entire life, through thick and thin.
I tried harder to separate them and I only ended up hurting my middle fingers, in other words, “mysel-
…Oh my god.
i had to share this! i cried a little, its so romantic. plus i tried it and its true!
my friends mom told me about this -
her mom: its kind of beautiful isnt it! like nothing can come between you and your partner
me: sorry, divorce papers are a thing
It is very appropriate this appeared on my dash as I JUST GOT ENGAGED!!! Yey!!
Just a reminder that I haven’t fallen off the edge of the world, but am visiting my lovely lovely boy in the USA for a few weeks- sorry for the lack of postings!
Checked in! In 24 hours i’ll be on my way to see the boy! So RIDICULOUSLY excited!
Too late at night to sleep, missing the boy, and debating whether to read another book. Tomorrow doesn’t look promising…
Dying. Haven’t heard from the boy in more than 24 hours and am both sad and worried that he might not even have made it home yet!
