looking on the bright side....

it is not difficult to do when you pull the curtains open and get the sun glaring into your eyes. looking on the bright side can be difficult at times, but the english weather is making it easier. it hasn't been sunny in what feels like ages... but yesterday, the 1st of march, was a gloriously sunny day - and today we have been greeted by yet another. well, more importantly than the good news of the weather - we have got some more good news to report. freddy found out today that his lab has funding for him until october. this is wonderful news, because it means we wont have to attempt to live off my 1-day-a-week measly income, and freddy can take his time to figure out what he wants to do next. the world is his oyster and he can take his sweet time in figuring out... which oyster to pluck? i'm not really sure how that phrase would go... so congratulations to freddy! march is starting off to be a lovely month indeed.

p.s this photo was taken this morning before he found out the good news, can you imagine how spastically excited he is now?

CONGRATULATIONS on the wonderful news! The flowers look awesome and just like spring. As for the picture of the both of you- you look GREAT! Maybe Freddy just knew that something good was coming his way!!

Congratulations, Fred. I'm glad to hear that you have a bit of flexibility in needing to find another job. Do you have any prospects? Ideas? I'd love to hear more. Cheers.


P.S. I must say, Fred, that you're expression is nearly indescribable. What was in your mind when you took this shot?
