6th Jan 2011
8.30 am

He is picking me up today,
I am so nervous.
Its been years since I last went on holiday with someone of the opposite sex
- ok I say the words...a man.

Breathe, keep calm when he arrives, this is going to be amazing I can feel it.

Yes ....good thoughts....good thoughts


My diary is coming with me...
when I get nervous I will write :0)
Well thats my plan...



Have I packed ok?
Its been so long...

Well I do like to carry protection -
He advised me to as well
...he is thoughtful
Just to make sure...

I packed vervain, ;0)

I could not resist packing my Steffie strappy top
hmmmm

Phew all checked, packed etc as
he will be here in a mo,
Ok ok .....calm...
breathe....
I can see him approaching..

Hi :0)

He kissed my cheek...
'Hop in' he said while opening my door...

His car was vintage, a beauty...she purred happily on our travel

Soon we were at the airport.

'Please 'I cried excited
'Just a tin-zie hint...'

Squinting my eyes and pretending to hold a slight gap
between my finger & thumb..

He smiled that infamous smile
.....I melted all to easily
returning the smile before
I had a chance to beg for information about our destination.

It was no good I really would have to try harder to get my own way :0)

My eyes were covered with a silk sash as we landed
& remained on until we reached a yacht...

It was incredible...

I think the feeling that warmed me more
& sent my heart racing
was the touch of his hand in mine...

Not the vintage car,
nor the first class seats on the plane,
or the yacht

but the warm feeling he created inside of me
- he wanted me

At the thought my heart raced even faster...


All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.
Leo Tolstoy

While on the yacht I had a chance to freshen up & change.
I needed my Linen clothing, the heat was nice here
but London was still in 50- 60 f

The smile I love reflected upon me once more
as he gave me a key

'Its a surprise' He spoke softly
then promptly hailed a taxi

We drove through quaint villages,
past bountiful woodlands

It was breathtaking...
We stopped at a beautiful villa...

'We are here'

His gaze set upon my face,
his eyes searching mine

then he gaze moved to my mouth...

I blushed & looked away

He then took my hand gently in his,
'Let me lead the way....come'

I laughed as I saw Ian..
He was here....does that mean..I turned

'Yes, Caz is here but its a secret that we are'

I smiled as our eyes met again,
'For her birthday...wow!'

Ian was jumping, dancing...he was excited that we could make it.

'Come on you two,
I will take you over to my friends villa.
They are away today and I thought it would be nice to have
quiet time to discuss everything ...well before you get too
erm, ...comfortable ...' Ian grinned & nudged G.

Though it was not I that blushed this time ...

The villa had its own pool, as did most ..
Gerard couldn't wait to jump in!

His eyes were calling me over

Ian shouted
'no time for that, drinks up,
he will just pull you in the pool.'

Gerard rolled his eyes & climbed out.

It was late afternoon.


Ian could see Caz down on the beach,
'Right remain hidden from this villa's beach ok,
catch up with you guys tomorrow
....thanks for coming, Caz is gonna luv it!'


Ian & Caz were in love..

This was their first holiday away together...

Ian was so excited to be able to get Caz away from it all -
he wanted to create a magical memory for her,
with the help of friends..

If you press me to say why I loved him,
I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.
Michel de Montaigne

Back at the villa -

'Maybe we should go now,
take a walk to our villa....erm..the villa'

I laughed, 'I think that would be the best idea..too risky hiding here'

I don't know why I asked, ' Have you cooled down now?'

G smiled, his eyes squinted a little - teasing me,
'No .....I may require ...a tinz-ie bit of help'

I tried to contain my laugh but there he went again....
melting my defences....


We walked & talked,
sipped wine & played
- laughing while splashing the sea water at each other..

This was the first stage of love...

I could see it like a play unfolding before me
but unable, no unwilling to stop it...

I wanted, needed this ...

my heart was finally singing again...

We decided to head up to our....the villa,
It had been a long day but I felt more alive
than I had in years....


The sunset was stunning,
the colours healed everything it sat its gaze upon...

G joined me,

I could hear his breathing,
for a moment I thought it mine

His breath warm, humid against my neck..

I felt goosebumps & shivers..

Omg....omg ...he is going to kiss me...
I almost stopped breathing, in fact I may have

My head was suddenly spinning,

My neck felt a pleasing touch, warm, - his moist lips

I became aware of my breathing once more
as I gulped, as my mouth dry..

There he is, lips now upon my chin,
my own lips quivered in anticipation...

but he stopped,
It was like a bolt of lightening had hit me...
why had he stopped?

His hand reached to caress my face,
There I felt my swoon return...
'I'm falling in love with you'
Gerards eyes held my stare
as his lips approached mine..slowly

I couldn't hold my calm anymore
and took his face to meet mine faster..

Our lips embraced, fast, then slow...more intimate..
A tear escaped my eye,
too late he had felt it..

He searched my eyes without pulling his face from mine,
& gently, kissed it away.


My head was spinning,
my heart racing,

Am I ready ?

Can I love again?

It is difficult to know at what moment love begins;
it is less difficult to know it has begun.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It was as if he heard me,

'Take a chance...please........I love you Tracey'


Life is a flower of which love is the honey.
Victor Hugo

I led Gerard into our villa,
poured some wine...


The night was just beginning...

Yes, I decided to take that chance..


Believe me if all those endearing young charms,
Which I gaze on so fondly today,
Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms,
Like fairy gifts fading away!
Thou wouldst still be adored, as this moment thou art,
Let thy loveliness fade as it will
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still.
It is not while beauty and youth are thine own,
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervor and faith of a soul may be known,
To which time will but make thee more dear!
Oh the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sunflower turns to her god when he sets
The same look which she turned when he rose!

Thomas Moore

By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth.
Bible - Song of Solomon

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get,
it's what you are expected to give — which is everything.
Author Unknown

Love in your heart wasn't put there to stay
Love isn't love until you give it away.
Oscar Hammerstein


Do you love me because I am beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?
Oscar Hammerstein II


Love is a portion of the soul itself,
and it is of the same nature as the celestial breathing of the atmosphere of paradise.
Victor Hugo

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Aristotle

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love,
a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Mother Teresa

Diary:

7th Jan 2011

sometime in the afternoon...

My hand can barely steady itself to write the words
I wish to declare...

...I have fallen in love!

Its true...

His eyes reach in & touch my very soul...
I feel him there, he feels me....I know it...
His every touch speaks love...

When does this happen, love ?
It is magic in its true form...
a power beyond ones control...

I am happy I can not control it...
for to stumble upon it makes a most
enchanted connection...

We stayed in our villa during the day,
plenty to do there ;0)

I want him still...

Ok ok those deep breaths again,
his eyes ...
oh his eyes do speak

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
Judy Garland

We got ready early eve,
Dinner was set
by the sea...

Ian was already there
G & I must have given the game away about us ..

The look on Ians face prior to bursting out laughing...

'Thats great guys,
Caz & I wondered if you were ever gonna get it together'
He patted G on the back, 'good man'


Ian left the table as Caz walked up from the beach to join us.

Oh I was so excited to finally get to see my friend!

Ian had done a terrific job - the table was amazing!

Yep - shoulda known...lol

Ian
started the birthday celebration

It`s Carolyns birthday !!

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthay to you
Happy birthday dear Cazzy
Happy birthday to you

hip hip hooray
hip hip hooray
(Caz blew the candles out in one swoop!)
Hip hip hooray

A toast was required

'To a most amazing lady,
how blessed we are to have you in our lives...
Thank you'

We all laughed & hugged

laughed again upon reading the bottle
typical Ian...Caz loved it!

We drunk wine, ate strawberries & cream
the candles aroma intoxicating.....

Ian then picked up his guitar

Ian sung his own lullaby to Caz
I had tears in my eyes
as I watched them both - moved by their love..

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet.
William Butler Yeats

The tears welling in my eyes were soon turned to those of laughter
as Ian decided to strip for Caz!

G & I decided to quietly leave...
This was our time to be alone too :0)

An evening with good, special friends,
Caz's birthday was pure hours laughter & smiles from the heart!


The sound of the waves, soothed
as a lullaby
gently sung to us by mother earth

I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I
yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes
and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes
and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes
James Joyce
Molly Bloom in Ulysses.


I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
in life after life, in age after age forever.
Rabindranath Tagore

How special & lucky we all are
to be able to make dreams come true

Believe in the possibilities of dreams...

they can come true....


Happy birthday Caz

My present for you is one wish fulfilled..
a little visual reminder
that you are special & spread magic
where ever you go...

Thank you for being a wonderful friend


Have a beautiful day
