    Well, my ever lovin' returned to me yesterday, and I arrived at work with a beaming smile. His flight was 45 minutes early, which meant he got home an hour before I had to go to work. :D It was GREAT to see him, and have him home. And all that implies. :D :eek:

    Last night he showed me many of the photographs he took, so I could see what I missed out on.

    Part of this trip was to acquire 2.75 acres of land, which adjoined the 2 acres we already had. As real estate transactions in the states are SOOOO much easier (and less stressful) then here it all went well, and we now have nearly 5 acres of a wooded hillside to build our dream home. And the views!!! WOW! Those who have seen photos before know we had an amazing view, but now being able to move up the hillside some, the view is, well, its breathtaking. A slice ofheaven on earth, where we will spend the rest of our lives together - with an uninterupted view of a beautiful valley, and a ginormous snow-capped mountain. (Elevation 16,000 feet!) (Its a volcano)

    Anyway - content with that knowledge, we went through the photos, and something just hit me, just now, and I still work on getting my head around it! lol

    Here in the UK, we belong to a Biker Club. And those of you that were here when I started, or have read my blog, will know that I used to feel horrible because I was the 'fat bird' amongst all the skinny sexy wives. My leathers would have been responsible for the death of at least 2 cows, and theirs, maybe just required a hind quarter! :D (Sorry PETA)

    Anyway, we have been invited already, by a friend in the states to ride with their club. Funnily enough - the old <gulp - are their wives all beautiful and skinny> thoughts popped up. Funny how knee-jerk reactions sometimes never go away.

    Well, he showed me photos of a party he attended. And, oh my god - get ready for this.........I am going to be.....not only "a" skinny wife - but I am going to be "THE" skinny wife!!!! :rotflmao: I would never mean this in a bad or hurtful way - how could I - but all the women, well, they are really, what I used to be, or bigger! Honestly. I cannot believe, I will be the skinny one!!! :D :D :D

    May sound silly, but it has absolutely made my day, and my hubby's face when he told me that was full of pride!! :D

    Just made my day, and really only hit me now. For the first time in my life, joining a new group of friends, I will have nowt to worry about. Amazing. Simply amazing!!

    More incentive to keep fighting the battle to maintain! Forever!!! :D Vain I know, but what the heck!! :D

    Will post a few pics of our new land and view later. Its so beautiful....I long to be there. Can't believe that is going to be my life, and my little peice of the earth.

    Happy days! :) I must confess, this month without him has been difficult, in the sense I was bored, antsy, lonely, excited, stressed, and all sorts, and it has taken a toll on the scales. Not horribly, but enough to make me mad at myself - so a long uphill hike is in order today, rain, wind or shie won;t stop, and time to buck up and be responsible again. Now he is home, I have no excuse.

    Bad bad habits. BAD! :whoopass:

    Thanks for the ramble!!

    xx

    but can't wait to see your pics of the land and view and congrats on getting the land, and I must say all transactions in the uk are so much harder than USA/Canada and so on
    so when you planning to move back to the states?

    Not soon enough Ken. Don't get me wrong - I am going to be desperately sad leaving the UK, there is no doubt about that - but as Dorothy ones said, "There is no place like home."

    ANd here is one reason why:

    These are some of our views from where our lounge, kitchen and bedroom will one day look upon. :)

    Hi BL

    Soooo glad he's home. The pics are amazing. 5 acres - that's greedy!
    The feelings about the biker club - Ican so relate to your feelings. I saw some sexy lady biker boots on friday. They were quite unusual, only a skinny wife could wear them.What size do you take?
    Imagine this - you'll join the group and they will all be jealous of YOU!
    Isn't it fabulous?
    Every day something crops up that reminds me never to be complacent about
    this achievement. Your story today is my reminder.
    Go girl, hope to see you soon xxx
