Laughter …. unplanned, unexpected and delicious fun.

The man of the house was out last night and my friend and I planned to get an early night as we both have a busy week ahead. We tidied up and thought about catching the closing ceremony of the Olympics for about an hour.

Well that was the plan.

Cups of tea in hand we settled down on the sofa, feet up and wrapped in snuggly blankets, well it is high summer after all.

We were gripped from the off and had so much fun watching it all unfold. Cries of ‘who’s that’ and ‘who sang that song originally?’ were answered by Emily (my daughter) by text, Google and friends on Facebook. It turned into a sofa party and we laughed a lot and throughly enjoyed ourselves. The texts from Emily and our friends Facebook posts induced fits of giggles.

It was a grand show, although we are still slightly flummoxed by the octopus.

The next few hours were filled with so much fun that when said gentleman of the house returned near midnight he was sure we had been drinking. ‘Absolutely not’ we cried, as wrapped in blankets, we headed outside to catch the meteor showers that were predicted last night. He was perplexed to say the least!

Thanks K for a great night…us girls were still smiling this morning when we met on the landing.

    I really loved the Olympics for all sorts of reasons, and I was sad when they finished. They injected a sense of sun light and connection into so many lives. Oh well, no point in moping over it but…. Still, you had a grand night and that is really good

    Jane, I am both envious and exhilerated! I know that in these random (sparkling) moments, you will find more of yourself (if that makes sense) – opening the mail, walking at daylight, pressing the seams of an old shirt, standing at the window watching the twilight fold inward, hearing your own uncontrollable laughter echoing through the house. In those, a wavelike rush of pure joy, in seemingly ordinary moments of nearly painful happiness. We are privileged to laugh and moreso to love. Blessings to you, dear Jane. ~ Love, Bobbie

    So very wonderful that you had that special time with your friend, watching the wonderful closing ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics! So relieved to see you referring to Em, again! I had been somewhat concerned!

    Laughter is the best medicine, Jane. I’m so glad that you were able to have so much in one night. Hopefully it helped to ease the pain.
    Blessings – Maxi

      Karen and I agreed, over the washing up tonight, that to have this time together has been such a treat. We have been able to really talk, share ideas, create new ones and follow threads over several days…coming back to things when we’ve had time to ponder…time to build new bonds within a friendship is precious. Much love to you Maxi xxx
