Nervous and excited all day about meeting Norm at noon. Did a bit of spotting on my bromides, chatted to Robert over the light box. Got a flower and note from Lou and I gave him some flowers too. Damian remembered Annemarie but she forgot. Nice having flowers around and Lou's note is a scream.
Saw Marie in the loo, both teased our hair up, such a windy day. Met Norm in the pizza shop, as usual. He looked – loverly. Clean shaven, bespectacled as I like him, black mohair jumper – really nice. And with a bump on his head which he got from bashing into a pole, wham! as he was daydreaming (of me?). We chatted and drank coffee...at the car I gave him the series of pictures of him, he loved them. He said he had to kiss me for the photos. We hugged each other and I kissed him on the cheek. I don't know where he would have kissed me. He told me I was wonderful...Before lunch I was nervous and thought I was tempting fate, knowing I liked him but really hoping nothing would happen, due to Melissa. Then after lunch I was disappointed, yet felt guitly I felt that way. I really really really really really like him A LOT and if not for Melissa I could have found Mr Wonderful at last, but not so: just my luck.
