pyjama day

PYJAMA DAY

Like I need an excuse to stay in my jammies, eh??

DH is back at work - not very happy about it either so watch out for the imminent return of the ****wit.

But it's the last day of the girls' holidays, we have nowhere to go and nothing to do and so I've announced a pyjama day. I love pyjama days. Today is going to be relaxed, chilled out and peaceful. We're going to curl up on the couch and watch films - I've already got City of Angels and Shall We Dance lined up, to be followed by Madagascar and Polar Express. And I'm going to make banana and raspberry smoothies.

And I'm going to get on with making ~S~ birthday card - it's her birthday this month. So I've got to get cracking and get her parcel of goodies organised and despatched. After the fiasco with the post over Christmas I've decided to use UPS or DHL this time - it costs considerably more but they can deliver in 2 days. I've already got a couple of presents for her - no, I'm not telling you what they are either! Actually, ~S~ already knows what they are because I told her.

We are completely useless at keeping secrets of any kind from each other.

I had planned to get her another gift for her birthday. Her favourite fragrance is Romance by Estee Lauder and I knew she was running low because she's squirted most of her bottle over a woven choker that she made for me (so that I could smell it and think of her). So I was going to buy her the hugest bottle of Romance that I could get my hands on. And even though I had told her what else I had got her, I hadn't told her this. This was my one secret surprise. So what happened? Well, she went shopping just before Christmas with DM (that's her mother to those that haven't yet been introduced) and came back telling me about all her purchases. One of which was, you guessed, a new bottle of Romance! See how she managed to slip into my mind and pull out my surprise?

She does that all the time.

In fact, we live in each others minds so much that sometimes its a little spooky. We call it 'that thing' and its usually accompanied by lots of laughing. 'That thing' crops up numerous times in the course of a day. Even in dreams. Bear in mind, now, the 6 hour time difference between us. She's 6 hours behind me. The evening before she posted this had been a reflective evening for her. She'd been thinking a lot about the past year, and had been finally laying to rest some of the bad memories of the year. While she was reflecting, I was 4,000 miles away, sleeping. Not just sleeping though because when I woke the following morning I woke with vague memories of distant dreams; just a little too distant and vague for me to pull back into my mind. It was only when we spoke and she mentioned how she had been looking back at a particular period of the year - a period of about 2/3 months - that my dream suddenly slammed back into my head and I realised that I had dreamt about that time in her life as if I was living it. Her memories had seeped into my dreams.

I don't know what you would call this - coincidence maybe. But it happens all the time. Constantly. And every time it happens it just strengthens our knowledge that we were always meant to be together. It just took 35 years for it to be the right time.

Soulmates.

Soulmates with bonds that go beyond this life, beyond the past and beyond the future.

So the wrinkles of yesterday are put aside, smoothed over and instead we concentrate on what matters. Us.

I've had that dream stuff happen. Ironically with a guy! I dated some men in high school and he was my first love. To this day, I have dreams about him. They are super connected dreams and in them we share a big hug and catch up. I ask about his wife and kids.. he asks about my partner and dogs. They are wonderful. I think it's great that you two have that same kind of connection

kylz - What can I say, I'm a woman and I multi-task!

cycleguy - Is that a good sigh or a bad sigh? I'm taking it as good...

one lazy lesbian - Thanks for your lovely words

sasha - I find myself having to work out the time zones for everyone overseas - I always know what time it is for ~S~, it just falls into my mind whenever I look at a clock.

angel girl - I cherish every moment that I share with her, whatever medium we use to be together. I'm just so impatient to build those physical memories too.

Soulmates are meant to be, no matter the continent or life situations. You're destined to find one another, to reach out, to connect, and to be together when the time is right.

Reading this reminded me of something I read last night. The book is Finest Kind of Love by Diana Tremain Braund. An older character, Auntie Em, was talking to Molly about soulmates....
"A soul mate," she said without missing a beat, "is your lover and your best friend. They are your breath of life. The person you want to be with first and always. A soul mate sees inside your soul and loves you. It's like your lives are entwined and when you're not together it's as if part of your heart stops. You kiss a soul mate good night, regardless of how the day has worn on you. And when the passion subsides, as it does in all relationships, a soul mate stirs a passion in your heart." Molly watched as Auntie Em stared out at the sea. "A soul mate, Molly," she said very quietly, "is at one with you who are."


Hold tight to each other, finding your soul mate is the most precious thing in the world!
