Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.

or so says Aldous Huxley, in his 'Vedanta for the Western World, 1945'... and I would have to agree with him. I'm exceedingly happy at present, and it's not due to an over abundance of cash or worldly goods (but the 32inch TV is fun) - it's just due to life being very equable at the moment.

We had a stunning holiday in Kiwi land, this young lady has just started school,

and my present class is full of happy young children, and my boss trusts me to get my work done.

Holidays are planned for Christmas (Mum's 80th birthday in Whitby, February (Poland - a boys adventure this one), Whitsun (camping with Kids/Grand kids) and we're getting married next August...honeymoon in Rhodes ( )booked!!!

We're not in each others face, but feel joined by an umbilical cord that stretches well (especially when I'm at the footie...).

Financially life isn't such a pancake, but, eh, has it ever been for me? We're working on saving the ten thou or so we reckon it'll cost us for the wedding, then we'll need a new car each after that AND save to go back to NZ at Christmas 2009!!

I suppose I've thought about this because I needed to get a copy of my Decree Absolute to prove I am free to re-marry. Sat looking at the dates married 22 August 1987 (which coincidentally is Suzie's birthday!!) and divorced Dec 1999. Was I ever happy between those dates? I can't really recall when (without the help of alcohol) I was. Isn't that sad?

Suzie is not having a good weekend - combination of family (of course...)hormones and mummy moments, but I think she is generally happy.

Oh Blow It - WE'RE HAPPY!!!

And so is she....:)
