Does my finger look big in this?

I waxed lyrically yesterday as to how how I am in love with my ring … and promised to post some images, so here they are …

The main stone belonged to my gran who died in 1994  – she was my last grandparent.

When I was very young, I recall being at her house and she put all her rings on the kitchen table and asked me if she died which one would I like to have.  I was really small, so I was more interested in drinking my sweet milky tea and  eating a slice of cake to be too worried about jewellery issues (few things have changed since then).

Fortunately I had the good sense to choose a simple ring, but with a healthy sized diamond (bless her).

So Kennith and I chose a ring design and then used the original stone from my gran’s ring.  So even though the design is “all about me” it has a bit of a heritage in it, which makes it even more special.

I really love this ring.

      Exactly – I also came to the frightening realisation that I need to wax my knuckles as it appears I have tufts of hair on them … when exactly did I become a character from middle earth …. all too disturbing ….

        It is a bit of the getting started on a blog that is tricky. You kind of need to sit there and think of “where to begin” – it does get easier the more you blog, and eventually it sort of takes on a life of it’s own.

        I read what I blogged a year ago, and I can see I am in a totally different head space than when I blog now. I have worked through some of my issues – some – and I look at things differently, writing this blog has definitely helped me a great deal. But it is a bit of where you are standing staring at a mountain and wondering “where the hell do I start?”

        So true RM…. well im still in the thinking stage of this whole blogging thing and wondering if it is a thing for me….

        one thing that i keep questioning is, how much do you say and what shouldn’t you let out? How much should you really tell on a blog? A blog can leave you quite exposed to pretty much anyone and i dont think that i am quite comfortable with with ‘unknown’ persons knowing too much. LOL maybe im over thinking things… I guess this is where i have to decide on my overall writing theme of my blog (that’s if i even decide to start writing)… sigh

      I do sort of find myself just staring at my hand …. and then noticing the wrinkles and that I appear to have tufts of hair on my fingers …. clearly that will need to be waxed off!!!!
