Hoping to put the Christmas Tree up this weekend - not feeling too Christmassy yet - hope this'll make a difference. As if I don't have enough to do, but does anybody/everybody else feel as though they have to clean the entire bloody house before the tree goes up? Oh well, hi ho hi ho....

I'm using my new icon from [ profile] fanbot for the first time - you like?

Apologies for the long post but I'm feeling a bit thoughtful and introspective today:-
My eldest son was 21 in June - with his birthday money he went on a trip to Boston, New York and Maine with a few friends. He was away for three weks and returned home on Sunday. Had a great time but left us again yesterday to return to University in Glasgow.
My middle son is in his last year at high school and hopes to go to university next year - again through in Glasgow, but at Strathclyde University - he was at an open day through there a couple of weeks ago and it only confirmed for him that this is where he wants to go next year.
This still leaves my daughter at home - she's only 13 so a few more years to go before the nest is completely empty but it got me to thinking. I love my kids and I miss them when they're not here but I also love having the house to myself and Sandy (my hubby). I love not having to shop and cook and clean and iron for everyone. I love it when my eldest son returns home from uni but within a couple of days I could see him far enough! and I suppose these feelings will just be doubled if Jamie goes away too.
Sometimes when I'm reading fics from my fl or entries from your journals I completely feel at home with you all and other times I feel so old!! Some of you talk about things my kids would understand better than I do. I guess life moves on and mostly we adapt to fit but occasionally I so wish I was young again. Sorry for letting loose with my mind-wanderings!

Up early, waiting for the postman to deliver my son's exam results.
Logged on and found that Lazuli's Repossession has been updated, there's a new update for Career Change Downsizing at Two Ladies and Willa has added an epilogue to the latest Pierced!Verse story arc.
Only hope the rest of my day is as good and as happy!
Please send any spare good thoughts to Jamie (my son) - he worked really hard and is sooo nervous about his results.

I can hardly believe where all the time has gone but my eldest son turned 21 today. He's grown up into a really great guy who I am very proud of. I'm so lucky with all my kids - touch wood - (and their father's not too bad either). We're all going out tonight for a family meal, which I'm really looking forward to. Today is definitely one of the good days!

please don't link to the 'this' in my previous post - it simply copies the entry into your own journal. sorry - I didn't know when I linked to a post in another journal!

I can't believe that was the last episode of Angel.
For eight years, I've looked forward to whatever night either Buffy and/or Angel was on BBC/Sky; hated the part of the year when it wasn't on and looked forward to January when the new season(s) would start.
I do other things too - honestly - but the Buffyverse is a big chunk of my life.
I'm not a writer but I'm an avid reader of fanfic and I'm begging all you wonderful authors out there to please, please, please continue writing your fics. I really couldn't take it if everything just stops or, even worse, just fades away.

I've been reading an Angel/Wesley fic posted in someone's journal - called Unity - and I can't remeber where. Can anyone help?

This has been an awful day - I had to have my dog put to sleep. He'd been unwell since Tuesday, had blood tests taken at the vet on Tuesday and sent to the local veterinary hospital today for further tests which showed he had a mass in front of his heart, a tumour on his spleen and a lot of fluid surrounding his heart. I stayed with him while the vet injected him and it was all over very peacefully and so quickly! Barney was a flat-coated retriever, 8 years old and such a lovely dog. My daughter returned today from a school trip to France and, fortunately, was there to say goodbye to him but is now totally distraught. My son's not home yet so he doesn't even know yet and every time I have to talk about it, I start to cry again. I'm so used to the dog being there, it seems unbelievable that he's gone. I feel totally emotionally wrung out.

Seems kind of fitting that my first post is to mark the screening of the Angel finale in the US. Although we've got a few weeks to go here in the UK before we have that dubious pleasure, I'm feeling quite melancholy.
I don't write any fanfic but reading it has become a huge part of my life since I became hooked on Buffy and Angel. I think I'm probably a bit of an obsessive sort of person but my interest in all things related to these shows has outlasted and surpassed anything that's gone before.
I'm worried that my fanfic universe will start to fade away now that the last show has aired, though most of my favourite authors are promising to continue writing and posting their stories. I promise I'll keep reading (and remembering to feedback) if they keep writing.
