The School Reunion - and a good night's sleep!!!
Some of you may remember that a week or so ago I was getting psyched up for my 20 year high school reunion. I was feeling a bit torn about going - should I just leave the past in the past, or go along and see what everyone was up to?? Well, thanks to my rapid weight loss plan (ie: adopting a baby and being too busy to eat) I was looking pretty good so decided to go along. And you know what?? I had an absolute BLAST!!! About 50 or so of my old classmates turned up, and everyone that I really hoped to see was there - JW, the boy who made my life a living hell at school by teasing me (found out at the reunion it was because he had a crush on me!!); CM, the jock whom I wasted four years of high school mooning over (who has actually turned into a decent bloke); and PG, the boy who broke my heart in grade ten after taking me to the Leaver's Dinner. I actually didn't recognise PG when he walked in - he had grown about a foot in height, lost a lot of hair and had a bit of a tummy - then when someone pointed him out I almost fainted. Funny what the heart still remembers even after such a long time. Anyway, I had a few red wines, and PG and I got to talking. We had a great time, we swapped photos of our kids, and generally enjoyed catching up. There were so many people there to talk to that I didn't get home until about 1.30 am (yikes!!) and it took me a full two days to get over it. And yes, I did indulge in a spot of dancing to some very bad eighties music.....Thankfully there is no photographic evidence of this.
Now, as to the second part of this posts' title- I had an uninterrupted night's sleep last night. Hurrah!!! Alice had a huge day yesterday - we went to Lasunceston to meet the great-grandmother, aunts, uncles and cousins that she hadn't yet met. She had a great day, slept there and back in the car, but was so tired and snotty by 7pm that she had an early bottle and bed. I went to bed at 10pm, slept until 3am when my snuffy nose woke me up, then went back to sleep until 7am when Alice woke me up. I tell you what, I feel almost human today! Perhaps this is the turning point??? Or perhaps DH just added a tad too much Demezin in her nighttime bottle??? Whatever the case, I hope it continues!
PS- the photo is from the reunion, and shows me at far right, with CM second from left, along with a few of my other buddies.
