I can't remember when last I wrote a blog in the heat of the moment, but here it is.
I've had a gorgeously chilled out Saturday that even felt like a Sunday ... and so I'm thrilled for a long weekend feeling. The thing that makes it different is that long weekends when I was single were kinda crap! Long weekends now that I'm part of a loving partnership is a totally different world.
I wouldn't be writing this if there wasn't a BUT!
I will melt after I've rationalise this, but I've eaten alone twice today and it's brought up something that I don't know whether anyone might understand. It mortified me to eat alone because of one particular reason ... Mr Unexpected has been home for both meals. It's been fixing cars and skipping lunch so he was hungry and had dinner by just after 5.
It's not the end of the world, but it's the realisation ... it's the realisation that I know what it's like to be single and there are certain things that I fundamentally believe a couple should do together or they may as well be single. Harsh? Maybe! I still believe it ...
If you are in the same space, well then you just shouldn't be doing certain things alone ...
Eating! I was raised in a family where we made time to eat together and it's something so important to me that I can't quite explain. I don't believe there is ever a reason why a family or couple can't take a moment (when you are both under the same roof) and eat together.
Um ... I kinda love that concept for cooking and cleaning up too!
Crying ... If I have to hide from the person I love and cry alone then I most?definitely may as well be alone. Of course I'm lucky that Mr Unexpected gets that I cry often ... very often! Some of it is dramatic and I take responsibility for that ... but I never cry alone!
I'm Libra ... granted, but I believe couples should go to bed together at least ... um ... well I like going to bed at the same time as my man and I'm lucky that we do!!
I have friends who's boyfriends I have never met and then there is mine who gets invited to girl's night out! He's always let off the ballet and of course we both have our?separate?lives but when you have to go on your own ... well, you know my thoughts on that!
And lastly ?...
Orgasm ... if you're doing that on your own and your partner's near enough to reach out and touch ... well!!
So, our meals got all screwed up today and for whatever dramatic reason, it mortified me ... it also made me reassess what makes me know that I have no reason under the sun to be single!
