Slowly getting there… I think

So far this week has been unexpectantly stressful. When someone with great knowledge of how a particular system works tells you something, you expect that to be the case, and I tend to accept it. It’s been a bit heartbreaking the last few days as they come back to me saying “well actually you cant have what you were told before…. oh and you need to pay this even though we said you didn’t have to before… oh and even if you do you cant have what you are paying for if the situation X changes”.

If it wasn’t for the progress we have been making with the overall project I would have totally lost heart in all of it and backed out completely. Feels like I’m writing in cryptic code here! Hopefully all will be revealed in a weeks time.
The fella has been great and so understanding through it all, but I can tell he is getting stressed too. It’s been a very fast roller-coaster going on a steep (learning) curve. We are so lucky and blessed to have such kind hearted people around us to help!

Over the weekend just gone I made a couple of realisations a long the lines of something I’ve found to be more and more true as time has gone on. I strongly believe that things happen for a reason even if you don’t understand or like how it is currently.

The first realisation I made this weekend was that currently life isn’t anything like how I had in my ‘plan’- but that’s not to say that I wont end up at the same place in life, or that it is a bad thing that events timings haven’t gone to plan.

The second thing I realised was that if the “bad” things that happened around exam time in the spring this year had NOT happened, then there would be very little chance that I would be in the good situation I am in now. I couldn’t foresee that then, and it just reinforces the belief of mine that things do indeed happen for a reason. Almost as if some greater being had a plan that I was not party to, all along.

Funny old world.

I guess it means that there is no bad outcome of a situation if you choose it, because it will only lead you on to something you could not have experienced had you not been through that situation before.

Long weekend: Part 2

[In continuation to my last long post!]

In the evening (Saturday) my boyfriend and I met a friend, Jack for a Thai meal at the Star of Siam. Jack was really worried that he’d end up being a ‘third wheel’, but in the end I was the ‘3rd wheel’ as for most of the time I didn’t really understand what they were talking about, so just sat quiet eating my green curry (which was excellent as usual!).

When we got back my boyfriend’s parents got my boyfriend to show me their wedding album. It’s amazing how much more things cost now than they did then!  I love the way things were worded in the 80s too. The modern then is now retro, but again it’s in fashion still!

Talking of retro things being rather cool, on Sunday I went to see my boyfriends next project to be a Jiffy!
According to him, there were only 70 of them made, and they’re a pick-up truck on a mini chassis. So cute! Needs a lot of work doing to it, but I reckon he’s more than capable!  If you want you can take a look at his blog 🙂 He’s new to wordpress, well blogging in general actually, but he’s got a great writing style!

While he was checking the pick-up out, i wondered off to do some random photography. We were supposed to go and do some photography with Chris, another friend of ours later on so I thought I better get in some practice after not really using a camera for months!

As it was I needn’t have bothered bringing all my big camera equipment because we didn’t do any serious photography in the end, instead we caught up in Costa, a nice way to round off my busy weekend!

I hope this wasn’t  too much for everyone to read 😉 I will try to get a couple of posts done in the next couple of weeks… Without too many words in!
