Who Is Goldfinch?

A lovely blogger very sweetly asked me in a comment recently: “Who is Goldfinch?”

Well…where do I begin?

Goldfinch

I met Goldfinch in October 2017 and I warmed to him instantly. I wrote a post about the night I met him. It was the Saturday night when the clocks go back one hour. So I had an extra hour with Goldfinch. I will always think of him the night of the extra hour.

How I Used My Extra Hour Last Year

Goldfinch is a very wonderful man (although he does not like me to big him up too much) but he is very wonderful to me.

FinchCaramel (Melody Finch) was feeling rather blue really, just over two years after she was the victim of a serious crime. Prior to that crime, she had a very stressful situation which mushroomed into some pretty intense bullying, for over two years. Caramel was finding interaction with men ever so challenging! One lovely friend tried wining and dining Caramel in the hopes she would warm to him. But it was not the right time. Then there was another man, who seemed nice at first but then turned out to be quite a letdown. Aaah sigh!

GoldfinchI was actually in the Midlands, miles from home, and yet again had been let down by this man. Then all of a sudden there was Goldfinch, he just happened to walk in. Caramel was quite bowled over by Goldfinch. He was gorgeous. She fell completely into his arms and felt so happy and safe and warm. Goldfinch brought deep smiles and happiness to Caramel. But Goldfinch was always reminding Caramel that he was going to fly home to Australia.

Plenty of time for Caramel to fall more deeply in love. Goldfinch helped Caramel feel she could fly again and made her far less blue. Flying next to Goldfinch was exciting and yet I felt safe.

That is not the whole story…but I don’t think you want another long long post from me on a Monday morning do you? So to the lovely blogger who asked me “Who is Goldfinch?”, the answer is, he was, and he is, my dream lover. And I am flying all the way to Australia to see him soon!

So from there it started. Me being smitten with a man I knew was soon to leave to go back to Australia. I have written many posts about Goldfinch and the awareness that he was going, but that I was very much in love with him.

There are a number of bloggers who have been lovely and supportive all the way through my romantic drama, but if you see my references to Goldfinch and have no idea what I am talking about, these posts might give you a bit more of an idea (there are more posts about Goldfinch, but I think this is more than enough):

        1. Thanks Sophie – it’s just I have a crazy amount of work to do before I go to Australia. It overwhelmed me at the weekend, but I decided to do what I can ahead of time and just communicate with everyone of I don’t think I can finish things off.

    1. Thank you so much Christian. I am really looking forward to seeing him, but although I am excited, nothing is going to change. I am going to be back in England soon pining for him.

      He is going to make the most of me while I am there and he is going to send me home after giving me strong encouragement to be more prepared to meet someone else. I know it already!

    1. He will let me have a little dose of love. But I have to keep my realism head on. I know he is a lovely man, he will make my trip wonderful. But he is not going to offer me the life beside him I would love. I am content with the crumbs 🙂 He is very wonderful.

  1. I’m so happy for you! and yes, I had really thought that Goldfinch was a bird too 😀
    May you both be happy, in our wonderful land of Oz.

    ps: When you mentioned that you were leaving the Midlands, do you mean in the UK?
