Eyes across a crowded room...

In my head, my life maps out like a story. Like I'm the main character in 'Callisto's marvellous life' or something. Do you ever feel like that? Like events are already planned? Let's call it 'fate' or more romantically 'destiny'.

So all this talk of destiny brings me to today, when I had one of the most fantastic and numbing experiences of my life thus far.
I went out for the day with a friend and we ended up in this little town and there was a 1940s weekend on. It was all around the train station and there was a steam train, ww2 jeeps and vehicles and even a spitfire!
Everyone was dressed up, fantastic!

So we were looking around this little vintage shop and someone bumped me from behind. He said sorry but I didn't turn around. Then I felt him trip over my foot! I turned around to say sorry and we smiled at each other. He was dressed in a soldier's uniform with hat.

My friend asked me what happened, and I told her. I said that if I wasn't involved with someone already that this would be an amazing meetcute. She turned to me and said 'i was literally about to say that'.

In the words of Adele 'it was just like a movie...'. And to top it off, as we were leaving there was a woman singing 'la vie en rose' the correct way (in French). I mean really! It was a dream I was sorry to wake from.


I loved this so much I'll be working it into my story.

Bows and arrows against the lightening

War of the world's the musical - I've been revisiting it and it's amazing. So atmospheric. If you have never heard it I would definitely recommend a listen.

Right now I'm sat watching old TV shows with my cat, I'm remembering the first time that I watched them. Isn't it funny that we use media in this way; as a time capsule. We hear a song or a TV show and remember who we used to be, Who we were with and What they meant to us.
I feel that I could reach through the TV screen 10 years ago and see 15 year old me ; innocent and blissful.

Finally got some time off. I'm going to just enjoy the fact that I'm not in work. I'm going to try and find a better job and generally organise my life.
Also I'm gonna have a day where I just go somewhere. Wherever I feel drawn to go. There is magic in the air recently and I feel that something is about to happen. * I'm sure that's just the impetuous child in me* nonetheless I'm excited.

Roald Dahl wrote "the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it"

Also, I'm going to try to write a book...well probably a short story, I don't know if I could fill a book's worth.
Right now I'm in planning phase though I have written a few pages of various sections. It's going to be a crime/mystery/romance starring 'claude', my favourite heroine.

Song that I can't stop singing at the minute is Adele-when we were young. I think it's by far her best song. She has the ability to capture an emotion, a moment in time. The woman is phenomenal.
That said Adele is a world wide sensation and that song is everywhere right now so if you were looking to hear something a little different try birdhouse in your soul by they might be giants. Great 80s tune .

I'll be posting again soon with details of my adventure.
