#1 Reason To Do A Happy Dance

I know Isabelle is patiently [or not!] waiting to be informed of six things that make me happy........Unfortunately I'll have to keep her waiting a wee bit longer. But I do have a preview for her --- one thing that's making me very happy right now. The other five will have to wait....

The reason they will have to wait is that I can't think straight.

The reason I can't think straight is that my head is spinning.

The reason my head is spinning is that I'm going to be flying in three weeks time.

The reason I'm going to be flying in three weeks time is that I need to get to the UK, [and swimming there is out of the question.]

The reason I need to get to the UK is --- see if you can guess the correct answer from the following options:

1.I've never been to Bristol and I hear it's a lovely town;

2.The OC needs a break from my constant blather and figures if I'm "over there" his ears will get a rest;

3.It's been four years and three months [one hundred and fifty six weeks] since I've seen my middle son, and it's time;

4.I've never met his Beloved and it's past time for that too;

5.April is a very nice month in that part of the world;

6.If I get to England, Rise is only a hop, skip and a jump from there!

7.To see our newest little grandson!

Excuse me while I stand up and do my happy dance!

As you can guess, there are several correct answers, but #7 is the most correct!

Other five things that make me happy to follow shortly....when my head stops spinning.

How exciting Molly! I know you are on pins and needles. :) It's even worth flying to see that new grandbaby. Take a Dramamine and sleep you way across - you'll be rested and ready when you get there! blessings, marlene

Oh Molly! I got tears in my eyes just reading through that list -- I'm SO excited for you!!! The only bad part is that there will have to be a blog break and we will miss you!

Warty Mammal said...

Hooray! I hope you'll also get to see Rise while you're there, yes?

We'll all miss you, of course, but even I'm willing to make the sacrifice under the circumstances.

molly said...

What do you mean, a blog break?? They have computers over there!

This trip sounds like pure bliss, and how wonderful to see the new grandson while he is still tiny and new. Have a wonderful time.

I'm so happy for you! Never stop dancing. All your reasons are exciting and wonderful except for the OC's ear problem. (He'll miss you, which never hurts.)

Pam said...

Oh Molly, how very very exciting. You are so lucky having grandchildren and of course you must see him while the eggshell is still on his head.

Thimbleanna got it right, by the way. But ssshhh.

Scotland's not far away from Ireland, you know. We have beds (not as many as usual since the Chap is decorating a bedroom with glacial slowness. But this should change eventually). And food. And cats. Can I tempt you???

That's fantastic news! So is having a new grand son . Have a safe trip and we will all wait happily knowing you will share the delight with us all!

You are soooooooooo ready to go see that baby! I looked at Rise's blog--what is it ?! is your whole family creative or what?!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Good Grief! A new Grandson and so quickly the middle son has been relegated to the bottom of the pile!
By all means see your new grandchild but don't forget to give your son a kiss! ...and also his beloved!

just a reminder from your family oriented squirrel. Now, Congrats and have a great time over there.

molly said...

You are too harsh on me Squirrel! It is because he is a chip off middle son that I am so excited to see new little grandson!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Ah, just ignore grouchy me and enjoy doing your Happy Dance.
