Day One – Committing to an Arduous Task

The following post is from a series of emails I wrote to my girlfriend at the time, whilst on a trip to Africa. She is now my wife, so I did something right.

So I just drove home, we said goodbye several hours ago, and you left me thinking three things:

1. We are going to miss each other
2. I need to get you a good present, make you know I love you.
3. Too many battered quorn sausages, plus a weird battered cheese and onion thing, can make you feel ill.

I’m tired, so today will be short. Expect this to happen a lot. Expect me to fail you too. Even so, I am going to aim to write on here every day that I am away, and post on a lovely photo every day too. Good enough for you?

I hope so. I had the idea shortly after you left, and I hope you found the bit of paper quick enough. I might drop you some hints, to make sure you go to my house tomorrow. It will be interesting looking back to see if you realised.

Today’s verse, is taken from biblegateway.com – cos I’m too tired to do any other reading today:


“In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free.
The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

Psalm 118:5-6
I think we are done here. I love you, mon petit tournevis Gallois.
