We are in Blackpool, my favourite place in the world! Roy surprised me, he’d packed and everything. I couldn’t believe it.
We’re staying in a beautiful hotel on the sea front. I can see the tower twinkling in the distance, and if I listen closely I can hear the waves. I can smell fish and chips and sea in the air, and it makes me want to laugh and jump up and down like a kid. Like I used to as a kid. Right here.
Roy won’t tell me what he’s got planned, but he’s packed my best dress and told me to get ready. He’s also packed pretty much everything I own including four nighties, a pair of wellies and a terrible two-piece I once wore to a wedding and didn’t have the heart to throw out. He said he wasn’t sure of a woman’s sartorial needs and wanted to cover every eventuality. What a lucky woman I am. I’m… I can’t describe it… giddy. That’s the word, giddy!
