Back in the Saddle

I got home last night sometime before 1am. Not a bad flight back over and I even had three seats to myself on the Tokyo-Hong Kong sector so I could stretch out. But turbulence put paid to getting any sleep. Before that flight I was squishy-squashed into a full plane for my journey over the Pacific and didn't get any sleep on that routing.

After getting in and unpacking and showering and having some toast (NW has the worst food in the air!!) I did get about three hours' rest last night so I'm actually doing quite well. However, I can't seem to get enough liquids into me, flying is so dehydrating!! Starbucks had a good customer this moring as apart from my latte, I got a ginger punch (yummy fresh ginger with lemon), a mineral water and a fruit salad. Since then I've also guzzled three very large mugs of hot water and three of cold.

I had a wonderful, awesome, phenomenal time. Well, how could it be anything else when I was spending time with the man I'm head over heels in love with? We were certainly ummm 'enthusiastic' at being together again and I hurt a little in all the right places. I think he may be a little raw himself!

I have a heart and mind enhanced with more precious memories. We drove, we ate, we laughed, we shared thoughts and sights, we hugged, we kissed, we touched all the time and..... we loved and loved and loved.

I am awed by my ability to love this man....and moreso by his ability to love me as he does.

I'm sure my saddle will get more comfortable in a couple of days. My heart on the other hand, is already aching to be with him again.

Oh Fi.
I love reading about the two of you.

Fiona said...

Thank you Sally :)

I LOVE being one part of the two of us!!

Zibi said...

Glad to see you happy ... Enjoy it dear

Jac said...

Smile. It sounds WONDERFUL! How, oh how, to keep that longing alive when it isn't a long distance relationship? That is the challenge of every single couple!

Fiona said...

Thank you Zibi :)

It is wonderful Jac, absolutely wonderful, to spend time with this man. Truth is, I'd give just about anything to swap the longing of being long-distance for the challenge of keeping this going as a more 'conventional' relationship.

Longing sucks big time when all I want is to feel his arms around me again. And the chance for him to be the last thing I see as my eyes close in sleep and the first thing I see when I wake.

The feeling of being wrenched from each other every time our trips come to an end....well maybe I should talk about that sometime but I try to focus on the good stuff instead.

Awww, that was such a beautiful post! The long distance thing is such a bitch.

Glad to know you're back, safe and sound. Hope you behaved yourself....... or hope you didn't!!!!

Fiona said...

It is Anna....an absolute bitch!!

Well, Ian, I do believe I was good ;)

Sunny Delight said...

Fi-Welcome home! Sounds like you did have a wonderful love-filled time...so very happy for you...

Matt Kohai said...

Fi - glad you made it home relatively intact, as it were... And that ginger punch sounds really good - wonder if I can find it here in the States? Or would I have to simply make it myself?

Fiona said...

aaaah Sunny, being with him fills my heart with such incredible joy...and it's ditto for him :) Email coming shortly, sorry I've been all in a dither since getting back.

Matt, if they don't have it, the ingredients listed were water, fresh ginger juice, fresh lemon juice, sugar. The proportions would be something you'd have to experiment with, but it is so very yummy!
