I am writing this post as a warning to those of you who may be considering taking dancing lessons, to make you aware of what can happen if you find yourself in the position I was in just under 3 years ago. I was 40, my only fledgling had just flown the nest and suddenly I had time to realise that I was alone and actually very unhappy. I looked fine on the outside to others because as I've said before I love smiling, but on the inside when I look back I was far from alright.
A friend suggested joining her for ceroc lessons, so we agreed a date and time to meet. At least this put one date on my social calender. So off I went, I have to admit found the whole thing extremely nerve racking, worse than any interview I had ever been for and to make matters worse the friend arrived late, by which time I had been thrown in at the deep end.............ALONE.
To cut a long story short Tim asked me to dance once the first lesson was over. He was a very competent dancer and I just trod on his toes a lot. Since that first dance I have never looked back, and today is our first wedding anniversary.
We had the most fantastic day and I married the most fantastic man. If I had a pattern I would knit a few more like him.
Tim, I am so glad you asked me to dance. Happy anniversary xxxxxxxxx
So if you are considering dancing lessons be aware...... You really could be swept off your feet. Don't say I didn't warn you.
