The party....

Well it went OK - I can only apologise for my last post about it - it wasn't selfish, it was egocentric and I would have hoped I would have stopped being bothered about my sister being the centre of attention some years ago!

I did the brotherly thing and helped them set it up, kept an eye on things while they enjoyed themselves, locked up at the end and came back the following morning to clean up - thats not a cry for sympathy for doing so much, by the way, that's what I'm supposed to do!

There were a lot of old friends there and it was good to have a mingle and most importantly sister and fiance enjoyed themselves.

The pig roast was also something special (one for the culinary enthusiasts here) - it was roasted whole, and was quite a sight being carried into the hall!

The last thing was the oddest - I had a chat with a girl that I really liked a year ago- the first girl that I had fallen for in a big way for many years. She told me that she had liked me too, and if I had been a bit more forward then things might have been different....

Faint heart never won fair lady, they say...

She is lovely (physically and mentally) and she now goes out with someone I know well, a great guy too. Much as I might wish that things had turned out differently, she was dealt a pretty bad hand by life and she is happy now - and I am enough of a good personto see past a little jealousy and my wishes that I was different to be happy that she is happy.

what you were feeling is normal sibling stuff.
It was great that you were able to talk with this girl and clean up long ago issues,now you were brave enough to do that ,be brave now and find your self a good female friend and from that hopefully find your self a girl friend

You did the sibling thingy... I know cos I have a few.. lol...
As to talking to the girl, I hope that taught you that things worth having have to be fought for and that you might have to open your heart a little bit to get it...
That being said... how about that cuppa coffee you promised me a year ago?

I think these feelings are normal and happen often in situations such as this where a sibling is concerned. Be happy as we all have a path...
