Re: The "Good News" thread

I just want to say that I'm happy that I'm in a better place than I was a year ago. 

Facebook has this thing where it shows you posts on the same day through the years... and the posts from a year ago are a bit gloomy. If I hadn't won a gift card for fastfood I was looking at going hungry. I was seeing my doctor for malnutrition because I had lived off of pasta and ketchup... I had so little to live for when rent and stuff was paid it was ridiculous. 
It was last year I asked my family for food instead of Christmas presents too... 


I'm not rich. I'm on disability, mind. But my fridge is pretty full, my freezer is too. I already bought most of the Christmas presents... and I've still got money left to put aside and start saving some up for the future. 

I hope I never have to end up there again.

Re: The "Good News" thread

I remember you telling us about asking for food instead of presents.  I'm glad you're doing better this year.

Re: The "Good News" thread

I'm bursting with something that happened to me last Monday and Solar suggested posting it here to release some pressure. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png


Well, on Monday I had the fan-day of my life so far. And this time it didn’t concern Sherlock or Benedict but Tony Hadley. Tony Who? You may ask. He is an English singer, best known for being part of the band Spandau Ballet who was most successful back in the 80s. And I follow him for more than 30 years now, also with his solo stuff, which he already does longer than working with Spandau Ballet.

On Monday he had a gig in my home town. We went to the venue early to check the waters a bit. We toyed with the idea to invite him for a Gluhwein and maybe a chat for 30 minutes or so at the nearby Christmas Market if he would have enough time.
We actually met Tony, he had time and felt like spending time with us. In the end we went to two different Christmas Markets together, met members of his band, had very interesting chats partly with personal topics, which I never expected him to tell us, drank Gluhwein and ate chestnuts. Which he paid.

Most times we had met him after concerts just for maybe 10 minutes together with other fans. He knows our names and that we live in Germany. He always is kind to us.
But this time we had spent two hours with him and he was nicer than ever before. He never tried to get rid of us. And he is "star" enough to do so without any problems. In a nice way of course. I am still stunned that he shared thoughts with us which normally aren’t meant to the ears of fans.

I still am on cloud nine and won’t get down that fast again. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Lautrela is right, these kind of things are the best reason to get up each morning and go to work and earn some money for more and more and more events like this one.
I'm so happy for you, gently (as you already know)..!! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: The "Good News" thread

Have an awesome time, Lautrela! It's an AMAZING play! (I always get a tug of happiness in my tummy when I'm reminded of it)

I've loved Hamlet since I was little, but I felt like it was pretty understandable even if you didn't understand the words!

Re: The "Good News" thread

I'm very positively surprised how productive I managed to be today!

I did the laundry (which is a long process in itself), folded the laundry, made the bed... I went to the grocery store while the clothes were in the dryer... and tonight I did the most amazing thing of all. 

I cooked. I cooked 2 different things at once! I cooked tomato sauce from scratch; for the Hello Kitty pasta my best friend gave me, to serve on Sunday evening for her... and I cooked french onion soup. For the first time in my life. 


Okay. The thing is... I basically can't cook. My mother never taught me, and no one since have tried to teach me anything, even when I ask... (my boyfriend does try, but he's bad at explaining stuff, lol) and being dyscalculic I struggle to read a recipe.
Plus I'm clinically depressed etc. plus I have chronic pains so I pretty much skip cooking if I can... or I take the easiest options.  And my OCD messes it up for me too... I'm scared of making mistakes and cooking is a big mistake waiting to happen... 

I'm pretty proud of myself! And I've got soup left for tomorrow too!

Re: The "Good News" thread

Thank you! 


Oh, and I just reminded myself of something else that happened on New Years Eve... My best friend's fiance sat me down (he was pretty drunk, but he was sincere) and thanked me for being a big part of their life together and it meant a lot to him that she had me as a friend. 

Long story short... I was in love with her for a lot of years. I never made a move though. I valued our friendship and I knew it wouldn't end well if anything happened (something I also recently confessed to her; to get the elephant out of the bloody room). And I know we are together a lot. 
I had this fear that he was jealous or suspicious of my intent... and a funny remark he made a while ago really made me fear that. 
I'm usually the one she contacts if there's a problem in their relationship... and I always try to help her the best she can; I try to see both sides and all... 

I also got the chance to tell him that I'm happy that he was good for her, and that it meant a lot to me. 


I am still considering using bits from Sherlock's Best Man Speech at their wedding though. heh.

That's nice of him to say that.  It's nice to know you're appreciated.  That would be cool if you used part of Sherlock's speech.

Re: The "Good News" thread

Today my boyfriend made me really happy. 

We've been in a long distance relationship for 2,5 years now... and with my bad confidence I have been having my doubts and fears... 
We both needed time, and I never have, and never will rush him but my head has a way of whispering doubts into my ears. I know he needed time to get over his last relationship... and to up-root his life isn't easy either. I mean he has a great family and friends and all that...

Today he told me that he has kept a little secret for me... he has recently started to really work towards our future, and him moving here. He's looking for work opportunities, and have even started learning a little Danish with the Danish woman who lives on his street. 


Now... I just need to get a bigger flat, somehow... err. We can't really live in this flat both of us. It's literally a single, tiny room!

Well I'm just about to go and phone Dad: today he reached his 83rd birthday, that's good news to me!
My daughter-in-law shares the birthday, but I don't think I'll phone Italy.

Re: The "Good News" thread

That is good news! Congrats on both of them! 

And thanks, I do too... for a while I had this silly plan of not getting 'too involved' but yeah... I fell head over heals so he better not pull back on this.
