The Story of The Stanley Friends Bracelet

It seems, more and more, that the title of this blog should be changed to ‘Presents from My Sister’.  Here, again, is another story of immense kindness, and another wonderful surprise.

This week, after suddenly taking ill, my Dog Harry sadly passed away.  I think, more than losing him, the decision to have him put to sleep was the worst part.  I felt like I was ending his life, when it shouldn’t be ended.  Unfortunately, it was the only option left for poor Harry.

Back in December, one of my Christmas presents to my sister was the Stanley Friends silver bracelet from Cath Kidston.  It’s a charm bracelet with five little dogs as charms, with coloured coats.  It’s absolutely beautiful.  I nearly bought myself one, at Christmas, when I bought Hayley’s, but I couldn’t afford.  After losing Harry this week, I decided that I would buy one of these bracelets, if they’re still being made, in order to have a ‘Harry Bracelet’, and I would always think of him when I wore it.  I told my sister about the idea, and prepared for the long wait until April, when I get my student loan, and would be able to buy the bracelet.

Two days later, I came back to my flat in Chester, and what was waiting for me?  Inside my mailbox was a flowery Cath Kidston parcel, and inside was the Stanley Friends bracelet.

What awaited me, a floral delight in my mailbox.

Sylvia Plath said; "Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences". My aim in life is to find things and people to love, so that I can write about them. Putting words together is the only thing I can see myself doing. This blog is an outlet, and I hope you enjoy reading it.

The New Remorse, Oscar Wilde.

The sin was mine; I did not understand.
So now is music prisoned in her cave,
Save where some ebbing desultory wave
Frets with its restless whirls this meagre strand.
And in the withered hollow of this land
Hath Summer dug herself so deep a grave,
That hardly can the leaden willow crave
One silver blossom from keen Winter's hand.

But who is this who cometh by the shore?
(Nay, love, look up and wonder!) Who is this
Who cometh in dyed garments from the South?
It is thy new-found Lord, and he shall kiss
The yet unravished roses of thy mouth,
And I shall weep and worship, as before.
