Tulip fanaticism

I have got things to be happy about, and I'm trying to remind myself of them today, when I'm feeling very down. I did something very spontaneous and hopeful (hopeful that it will go alright!)and booked a trip by myself to see the Linnaeus gardens in Sweden with the Wakefield and North of Yorkshire Tulip society. I'm going via Copenhagen, and it's all happening the weekend of June 17 when the days are crazy long, so I booked an extra day just to see the city. I'm hoping the whole thing will be just amazingly beautiful and cool and that I will enjoy hanging out with other die-hard flower fanatics. Then the following weekend will start with me and W celebrating his birthday in Edinburgh. Really, I have a lot to look forward to, but there are so many unknowns in my future I sometimes get distracted from what I do have to enjoy.
