I have this saying I use, when something is really, really, important to me, either to see or do.
"It's super important to me, since like forever."
Yes I am fully aware that I sound like I'm thirteen. I don't care.
Anyways, living here in the UK, I tend to use this phrase a lot.
My husband makes fun of me all the time.
(Him) "Oh, so t h I s is the place that is sooooooooo important to you, ---why?"
"Um, DUH,..It's Anne's house man!"
(Strange look from husband) ~ "Because you know her, right?" With a smart ass snicker...
"Yes. I do, she married a man who was the epitome of self indulgent, ego-maniac, delusionalistic (made that word up) superiority issues~~common to quite a few monarchs and men."
It's just discourse.
No harm done.
Here's a peek of some bits.
My kids don't hold back. Ever.
Tudor Rose in the ceiling, no big deal.
The gardens took my breath away.
Every time I say that I see Maverick.
Sorry. That'll be in your head now all day.
I wonder how they do that stripe-y grass?
No pictures permitted inside the house, of course, so you'll have to make a trip or buy a book to have a look inside. It's well worth the drive to go, I just adore Kent (the county, not Clarke, though I do adore him too).
It's getting late, and I'm getting wordy and parenthetical.
See you soon friends.
