Everyone says two is a fabulous number (one being the lonliest) and for me, tonight it’s true. Is my dear husband being particularly romantic? Have I just won two million dollars? Well no, if that happened I wouldn’t be here at all, I’d be on a plane on my way back to Blighty. By the way, and I know I digress, but did you know where the term Blighty came from? Blighty is a British slang term for Britain, you knew that but did you realise it came from the Hindustani word vilāyatī (विलायती) (pronounced bilati in India), from the Persian, “vilayet” and ultimately from Arabic, “wilayah, originally meaning something like province. Back to the story of two, why this two is better (almost) even than winning two million dollars, better even than my husband displaying uncharacteristic romance. I have finished chapter two of my book!!!!!!! Yes, this will get very boring by the end but humour me for now. I am so happy, I am walking around feeling like the Queen of all I survey, like nothing can stop me, like Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare rolled into one….like I better go and make dinner before I get too carried away. Two is a fabulous number.
