......Uhmm, don't have a title.....



Lately I realized that I spend most of my time reading blogs, or peeking at what’s new on FB instead of getting work done,  and I’m seriously working on it, the cool thing though is I actually get my work done by close of work :-), So yesterday I vowed I would concentrate 70% on my job (It’s an A by the way),  and I was doing good until my girl from across the Atlantic sent me an email, accusing me of holding back juicy gist about a common acquaintance on my side of the Atlantic. (gist flies I tell you). Lost by her accusation, I replied asking what I’d missed out on about this acquaintance(let’s call her Cuddles),  I also wondered what could be so hot about Cuddles that I hadn’t heard about, getting back to work, the bombshell comes in and that’s how my concentration dropped to 30% for the next couple of hours.

She had just heard that Cuddles, who had been dating a very good friend of ours was almost, if not married and heavy with twins!!!, only about six months after she lost interest in our dear friend..(yep she was in between guys). I instantly became cold, and whilst trying to digest what I had just read another email comes in ……..(It gets worse!!!!) Cuddles’ baby daddy apparently had been engaged, and his fiancée was in the States planning their wedding!! and the whole time Cuddles had no idea. I froze.

Immediately my heart went out to the once happy bride- to- be, I tried visualizing him breaking the news to her, and what her reaction would have been.  Where does she begin? After getting that far, I know it’s better off for her to have a broken engagement than a broken marriage, but the pain she would have to go through, cancelling the wedding, meeting someone new and starting all over again, even I would opt for singlehood until death do me part.

In life change is the only constant thing, for me, I evaluate the worst that could happen in every situation and hope for the best.  What freaked me out the most was that it could happen to anybody, me, you or someone you know.

On the other hand I did a good deed today, I put a smile on a (colleague’s + his girlfriend) face = priceless (4 me). It was her birthday, and he decided it was time he became a man, so I hooked him up with a divine engagement ring at short notice, as his plan “A” messed up.  He had her birthday parcel delivered to her office with the ring in the cake, and she loved it!!!~ I can be a creative romantic, which means I’d need more than that to wow me, so my man had better have more than that up his sleeves, but hey, if it worked for her then that’s all that matters……It’s a loooooooong weekend, and I’m gonna make the most of it, you should too.
