Not still shopping Julia, hope you are having a lovely time!!

Deanna, that must have been a lovely 'holiday' for you and you had no guilt trips over work not done first.


Deanna Report 18 Jul 2008 16:43

I'm am with BC on this one.

My idea of bliss is..... the house to myself, and what I used to do when OH took the children to his sisters for a week...was;
spend day one having a complete clean out and do the washing.
Spend day two.... do all the ironing.
AND.... from day three until they came home was ALL MINE!!

I spent it having a bath ... in peace.
ate when I was hungry.
Had a coffee if and when I wanted one
and read my book(s), watched MY CHOICE of TV....
Oh just enjoy the peace and quiet Julia it's lovely.

For the first time in WEEKS I have my little flat back to myself. It is sheer, unadulterated, bliss. I would rip my clothes off and dance to my Cajun music if it wasn't for the window cleaner across the road LOL BC XX

Well if you get really bored on your own, I'm not that far from you and I haven't done (looks over shoulder) Housework for 2

My OH likes to be helpful. Today I went into the choir library to try to tidy it up. He decided to help. I asked him to put some music in the red box. He was wandering round, couldnt see it. Most of them are white!
Other times he would stand looking at things when I wanted to walk past. It is only a small room. I am afraid he was not a very great help. At least I have got most of it sorted, will do the rest another day when he is NOT with me.

Poor you Huia, I think you are a saint, really I do. I know I couldn't cope with o.h. if he got much worse than he already is, it sounds bad saying that, but we don't have the bond you have and never will.
Julia, hi there, enjoy the time you have left, I am sure the lads will make sure Steve takes his pills and be fine. Treat yourself to something special to do or eat, so you don't let them know you were bored, but make sure they give you notice next time so you can make arrangements for some company.

I could certainly use a couple of days without OH asking if I want my cuppa now, if I happen to cough or turn over an hour or so before the wake-up usual time. And when I finally get up I can haul lots of boxes of stuff out of the spare room to try to get rid of some of it. When he is home he tends to look through the boxes and puts things down in a different place and I dont know what I am doing :((
