Geez, the excitement is killing me.

I am so excited I feel like I am going to burst.

I feel like a child starting school for the first time, taking some tentative steps into the unknown but exciting new world.

I feel like a teenager in love, knowing "He's the one" and you can't eat, sleep or think about anything else but the next date.

I feel like I did when I passed my exams, each and every one of them.

I feel like I'm eighteen again, enjoying some maturity with no experience of what it really is.

I feel like it's the night before the wedding with the anticipation of the big day.

I feel like I've just found out I'm pregnant, with so much to learn and discover.

I feel like I've got a new baby who I want to hold in my arms and nurture, yet can't wait until it can stand on its own two feet.

I feel excited....yes excited!

And the excitement is killing me....

...because I want to tell you, but must remain hushed.

So instead I am dancing around the living room, with regular whoop whoop whoops.

Relief...21st C Dad has just brought me a hot chocolate. That'll calm me down.

Phew...for a moment I thought I was going to burst.

I'm calm now. Calm.

Breathing easy...for now...!

I'm relaxed.

Tomorrow's another day....when my madness can continue once more.

So Night night! Sleep Tight! And watch the the bed bugs don't bite!

Ooooh but it's too exciting for words....[cue lightswitch...then darkness]

...and snooze.

I am guessing it is something to do with the media and rubbish - if I am right, do I win a prize? LOL

Karen said...

Yey...I am still very excited and you are all so close ;-D

Jo - whoopey whoop whoop. Thank you for your excitability.

Hi Ooberman (?) - what have you done to Pog...but you're right I am expecting something...ooh I really wish I could say!

Hi Mark...great guess, It's my 40th birthday on Friday. (40? Who said that!) OMG, I'm turning 40...Okay, I'm excited but not that excited, because I am so excited about something else :-D

Hi Grumps - getting so close, but I can't say. My hands are tied and I'm all gagged until...oooh nearly blurted it then...I am so crap at keeping secrets...but I will spill the beans soon, honest!

The excitement is still killing me...I'm going so insane, I even had my wheelie bin cleaned, even though I hardly use it any more...

what is the excitement all about?

Karen said...

Oooh Bury Boy...I want to tell you now but I am still bound to secrecy. I hate secrets...but I as soon as I get the go ahead I will be jumping on the spot and blurt it all out!

Hi Patricia...so sorry. Soon, soon. And thank you for the birthday wishes. Much appreciated.

Hi Anon - I know, I know and patience is a virtue that I really don't possess. I can't wait to spill the beans, I really can't but still far too excited to keep it all in...it's got something to do with a contract. Ooh ooh, nearly said it but I'll get a slap on the wrist if I did. Fingers crossed it will all be official next week. ;-D

Bleurgh....It's so hard keeping it all in. It's a good job I've got a day out with Ruby tomorrow. But that will send me in a tizz too, having received her news that she's leaving BSE!
