On Saturday four of Minor Midget's friends cam and watched her perform in a play she's been rehearsing at her weekend drama course. We then went for oriental buffet. Afterwards we got the tube down to London Bridge and the London Dungeon party experience. Total worth pre-booking the birthday party just so you can jump all teh queues. Even normal pre-booked ticket holders are made to queue outside. Two hours later, we are out in the sun again. Associated midgets are all hyper and we get a bus back to mine for a sleepover. I made pasta and a choice of three sauces and two cheeses.
At 1:45am, I left them to it under duvets and in sleeping bags, chattering, watching films and playing computer games. They continued to around 4am apparently. But still managed to wake me at 8am with loud computer gaming again.
Last Thursday I visited WPKAW's aunt (AoWPKAW) to show her the plans for the extensions to the house in Wales. She is one of the trustees so I need her permission for any work that might affect the value of the property. She gave it unreservedly.
It's interesting to visit her as her anecdotes are so amazing. I had mentioned previously that AXA had taken me to see Rigoletto and I'd taken her to see La Boheme. AoWPKAW's Great Aunt "O" had performed at the Coliseum and when she found out that AoWPKAW had never been to an opera, she insisted on taking her. But it had to be something worthwhile for the first opera. Franco Zeffirelli's production of Tosca with Maria Callas as Tosca and Tito Gobbi as police chief Scarpia seemed as good a place to start as any...
Love and stuff
Sunday evening AXA and I go out for dinner by the riverside in Richmond. In passing, AXA said she found it more notable that I still had the flowers, dried, that I bought WPKAW for our 5th anniversary than the fact that I still had WPKAW's remains on my bedside table.
Letters from across the seas
Roses dipped in sealing wax
She wondered that I might still be in love with WPKAW and merely filling space with herself. She doesn't remember meeting WPKAW on the one day that she did at a mutual friend's wedding. She thinks she resembles WPKAW from the photos she's seen. I can't see it and neither could BustySec when I mentioned it.
Valentines and maple leaves
Tucked into a paperback
I'm not upset at her that she might think that way. I don't feel pressured by AXA to speed up my plans. It wasn't meant in that way from her. It hadn't yet occurred to me that I should be throwing stuff like that out. It had been my intention to clear slowly after WPKAW's remains were no longer in the house. I'd cleared some photos from the bedroom over the last week though. Slowly disassembling the reliquary.
Guess I'll throw them all away
I found someone to love today
