Yes, I'm tripping, literally and figuratively. I've never felt as excited as I do, right now. We really, REALLY need this time together.

Yesterday, miracles of miracles, we had an opportunity open up for us to see each other in a couple of weeks' time. Within 15 minutes, we had our next visit planned and booked.

Three nights and two whole days. Just for us. This will be the first time ever that we will have all this time, without any intrusions. No work to chew up the days, no early breakfasts, no grabbing an hour here or there, no waiting until the late evening to be together.

Yes, three whole nights and two entire days (plus an evening and an early morning) of togetherness! Am I repeating myself? Delirious with joy, that's how I feel.

I'm about to go into battle to get my leave approved. It's only three working days (and all of them will be spent travelling) as our visit is over a weekend, but dammit I'm not going to take a 'no'!!!

You know, it's funny, but I don't sense ANY excitement here at all! *VBS* Have fun, and enjoy!

Many hugs, many many hugs!

George said...

Fantastic! You've brought a smile to my face on a very dull, wet morning. You go girl!

Fusion said...

Give 'em hell Fiona, and take no prisoners!

Fiona said...

Sunny...no, no excitement at all ;) Hugs right back atcha

George...I never threaten ;)

Kimba...no Dodge Caravan this time but much better proximity to the airport :)

Matt...not the scheduling that's a problem, tis the 'OK yes' that is! :)

FB...right now I don't think I'd even notice a dull wet morning!!

Fusion...bastard is making me wait over the weekend to let me know. It's a yes, I just know it!!

Gosh, enjoy it. It just goes by too damn fast.

Nish said...

One word comes to mind: YAY!!!!

Have lots of fun and let every moment marinate in your mind. :)

freebird said...

I shall be biting my nails all weekend now! It's just got to be a yes. Seriously, I don't know how you manage your long separations. I've just got to deal with six weeks apart (as of yesterday) and already my heart is aching.

Unspoken Drama said...

YAY!! So happy to read this, Fiona. They have to say yes to your time off...nothing less is allowed. You can tell them Drama said so. HA I'm sure that will help a whole bunch!


anna said...

I'm so happy for you!

Fiona said...

Jamie - this is going to be the best one yet. Not the longest but definitely the best :)

Ian - hahahahahaha thank you for that lovely dry wit of yours :)

Oblivion - we survive partings that last too damn long, but they are always worth the next hello ;)

Nish - mmmmmmm marination...what a lovely concept ;)

FB - I'm still waiting for the damn approval but I won't take no!! It's always hard when we have to leave each other, and not knowing when the next time will be, but nothing NOTHING has ever made us even think we won't be together :)

Drama - I'll do that!!! Thank you ;)

Anna - It's time, gosh it's over-due, we miss each other so much! And thank you :)

Fiona perfect timing just when yopu really needed somethin to distract you from the shoulder pain. I'm so glad you've got this opportunity - now don't go damaging your back . . .
