Friggatriskaidekaphobia (Fear of Friday 13th)


So tomorrow is Friday the 13th; some of you may well be thinking of staying in bed just in case.  I however no longer fear Friday 13th but see it as lucky.  Last year I put a bet on a horse on Friday 13th and it came in, so for me this is all the proof I need!  Tomorrow also marks the end of one of the seemingly longest working weeks; it has felt more like a month than a week after all the short weeks we have had thanks to Easter and the Royal wedding.  Now on the subject of weddings, it seems wedding talk is surrounding me at the moment.  My best friend gets married in August, my brother gets married next year, a girl at work is arranging hers, on the train home tonight two girls were enthusiastically discussing one of their weddings and even the magazines are in on the act talking of wedding season approaching!  I however still eagerly await my proposal.  My boyfriend and I went to New York to mark our two years together and I really thought it might happen as did many family and friends of both of us but sadly no.  Does anyone else feel society puts undue pressure on you to marry before you are 30?

This week has been tough on me for another reason.  My move had felt more like a holiday up until now but the reality of work makes it all the more real.  Naturally you both bring home stress from the work place.  God I miss coming home to my meal on the table!  Yes I was spoilt though at home.  My Mum is not just my bestest friend in the whole world but when I was at home, she acted as  personal assistant, writing letters, making phone calls and running errands; often to the post office to collect my latest internet purchase!  Hang on a minute, that last part hasn’t changed; I still have parcels delivered to Mum in order that I can sneak in my new additions to my wardrobe and shoe collection!  I must share with you all how thoughtful my boyfriend was yesterday though; when I got out the shower, he had left a freshly picked rose on my dressing table.  I am loving living with him despite the need for us both to adjust.

Today I found my mind wandering to holidays and as it happens, this months stars said my thoughts would be filled with ideas of foreign travel.  I know I had a fantastic holiday in New York already this year but I really do fancy a beach holiday – this pasty complexion needs to catch some rays!  Also I saw a great cut out swimsuit I must have so now I naturally need to go somewhere to wear it.

Anyway try not to fear tomorrow too much, try seeing it as lucky, after all it’s only a number!  Stay smiling, it’s the weekend at last!
