Is there anything better than staying up late with a friend, talking about the past, both far away and recent, and loving them with the depth that only comes from time?
Right now in my life, I'd say that there's not much better than that.
Pete stayed last night, he's staying tonight, and then I have no idea when I will see him next, if ever, which is a sobering thought. He is an amazing and wonderful man though, and I am so glad to know him and be known by him.
Work is work (actually, it all went ok yesterday!) and life is life.
I need to email a few people about the Year of Firsts celebration (yes, it's going to be invite only!) and whilst it's not going to be a big thing, it's going to be good for all of us. I have however realised that due to the vagaries of the school system we don't break up until the week after, which may be an emotionally challenging day, but that's ok. I can do all things through He who strengthens me.
And I have email. I haven't opened it yet, because it's just there, uninvited in my life. Hopefully it says that the house is great, that BG is doing great, that the world is great for them. There's no attachments so there's no pictures of BG. I'll open it when Pete has gone, so that if it is nasty, it can't taint what a lovely time *we* are having, just hanging out.
And so to work some more!
