My middle sister, Mara, is getting married! Her partner proposed at the weekend (and she accepted) and they’re planning to wed this coming November. I’m so delighted and excited for them both. They’re a wonderful couple who bring out the best in one another and – should they be lucky enough to have children – they’ll make kind, sensible, and loving parents.
I had been planning to go back to the UK at the beginning of July, partly because I have tickets to see the Foo Fighters on Sunday 3rd July in Milton Keynes [and believe me, there is nothing else that would induce me to visit Milton Keynes] and partly because my brother, sister-in-law and nieces are taking a house in France for July (as one does) and have invited me to stay. Which is jolly sporting of them.
So, can I manage to afford to visit the UK twice in one year? I don’t think so. July is off, November is on. I need to flog those tickets on eBay and just hope that the Foos tour brings them here to Sydney this year. Please god. PLEEEEEEAAAASE.
