40 Years Ago

Forty years ago today, my family comprised of four adults, two kippered children and a zonked out cat sat in a carriage just like this. Destination - Cornwall. Back then, all I had to worry about was whether my wobbly tooth would fall out before we went to the new house and when could I see the sea? Ironically, I am on the same line (albeit in a different direction) to deliver my portfolio to Plymouth University.  I had just played the Spanish doll in 'Coppelia' the day before and had rushed round to say a final farewell to my friends.  Music under cut.

50 Day Question Challenge 2016 - Day 33

Image result for heartbreak

33. What did your past relationship teach you?
To not play along with players, to walk away.  The brightest lights cast the darkest shadows.  Sometimes it is better to be with someone who is solid and dependable, rather than reach the heights with others, only to have your heart broken.  And.. that I like my own space and proof of partnership isn't to walk around joined at the hip.  Hubby and I have joint AND separate projects.  Makes for a far better partnership.
