Despite having days off, I feel like I've been busier than ever! It's been lovely spending time with John and the boys, though. Except it just makes me want to do it more often. I really can't imagine giving up the job...but sometimes I dream.
Anyway, yeah, busy. Avebury was great, and we all enjoyed it a lot. It's a shame we couldn't go out theree on the bikes, but next time I'm sure we will.
Today I've been trying to practice playing the songs I'm doing at the wedding tomorrow. I need to find somewhere once we're theree where I can warm up - mainly my voice. I sound like a tin can being dragged on a bad road if I don't warm up. Probably have a quick Scotch to help with that, and a bit of dutch courage ;)
Sherlock has very carefully hung up his outfit, which I think Mycroft told him to do. They're both going to look very smart young men. Sherlock is wildly excited about it all. I'm not sure he's ever been to a wedding before - especially not when he's busy planning ours, so wants to know everything about everything.
We are, as the poll results tell us, going to shake it all about ;)
As I said on John's blog, I'm strangely nervous about it all. Not just singing, but just about wanting it to go right. Weird, isn't it? How you sometimes want things to go right for other people more than you ever do for yourself.
Mrs Hudson and the security team have bravely offered to dog-sit. I hope we have a flat to come home to.
Last night John and I went on our belated Valentine's. John took me to a lovely Spanish-y hotel. Our room was an amazing blue colour, and the bathroo mwas a riot of tiles. The food was fantastic - we had tapas. And then there was a lovely lounge bar, where we probably drank too much rum :) but not, I hasten to add, so much that it dampened proceedings! As always, it was great to just spend time together, no early morning wake-up calls of small elbows hitting you in the face.
Although we did get an actual call, demanding to know our eta for returning for FUN. We still managed a lazy breakfast though, and then a leisurely ride home. It was...yeah, lovely. One of the things I love about John, is that we just...get along, all the time, and things like this, although we obviously both make the effort, it's not like...there's no pressure. You know, we just enjoy each other's company all the time. It makes it so much more enjoyable.
