127 days to go.

Late Entry.

I got “Employee of the Month” at work. It’s not really an accomplishment because everyone gets it at some point. They asked if I had a speech and I said something like, “Thank you. Good work everyone. Thank you again”. I later realized I could have given the speech I have prepared for when I accept my Oscar. I told J, who has the desk next to mine, my speech. She liked it.

I’ll tell you now. It goes like this: “Thank you so much for this award. They say if you see a turtle at the top of a fence post, you know one thing. He didn’t get there by himself.  I am nothing more than a turtle on a fence post. I didn’t get here by myself and I am eternally grateful to all of you who made this possible by giving me your support through the years.” Applause, applause, standing ovation, a few tears then sit down as fast as possible without falling down the stairs.

I introduced L to The Great British Baking Show after a lovely meal of kabobs and wine. We watched the first episode of Season 2 because A and I had watched the first episode of Season 1 the night before. L loved it and she talked through the whole thing too just like A. Talkers are the best.
