Me and Joe, tucked up.

Joe is trying to get me to fuss him. I'm trying to get him to lie down if he's staying (which he won't because actually, he's looking for R) but he's not having any of it.

Today was weird, because it felt like a holiday day, where the AC and I are off and R is at work. The boy and I had a lovely day, we fought with lightsabers, we made cakes, we went to his Kuk Sool Won class (he did quite well today, his focus is really improving.) we played, we snuggled on the sofa watching Ben10 Alien Force - and were mutually disapproving of love and romance in a children's show that is about aliens. The AC's comment was that if he wanted to know about that kind of stuff he'd watch Hannah Montana or Bratz, because they are girls programmes. He is very much amused by the idea that I have a boyfriend, and that it's R, and that R has a girlfriend, and it's me, and that we ....... gentle readers look away......... we do kissing and stuff. (a subtle inquiry into what "stuff" was was answered by him telling me it was girlfriend and boyfriend stuff, like going to the cinema and holding hands when we walked and stuff like that.

I digress.

We sorted out washing, we dried washing, we matched up socks, we threw socks at each other and buried the AC in washing. Just because.

At the end of the day we had bath and snuggles and bagels for tea, and I had to wash cake mix out of his hair where he had decided to take me literally and see if he could really lick the bowl out. (Yes, almost, for anyone who wondered!)

A and D and H came round to watch a film and chat and stuff which was cool. We usually game on a Saturday night, but with the boys away, and C away in Texas, there was no gaming tonight nor next week. But everyone except C is home tomorrow, and Mum and Dad are coming round and so on. I've made big strides in the bedroom and the rest of the sorting should be much easier. Mainly, it's clothes I've grown ...... out of I guess, although I'm smaller than they are, if you see what I mean! I got the otterman upstairs, so all his uniform can go in that, and then it's out of the way and all on one place.

And so to bed.

With cat, and his t-shirt and pillow. Soppy, I know, but you should see the texts I've had! It's not just me, that's all *I'm* saying! Short absences like this are bad because we miss each other, but great for refocusing us on what is important in our relationship with each other. It's the little touches, like I said last night.


34 and sound like a teenager.

LOL. I wouldn't have it any other way!

Worse before better lol!

In the middle of a major shift upstairs, as that's what I had planned for the weekend. AC is helping, of sorts, but is mainly playing.

The house is worse before it gets better, I know, and it is getting better.

I had texts last night from the man, they were delayed, as usual, then ended up arriving both together although they were sent hours apart! It's not important, it means he got there fine, so that's ok. I know, I probably worry too much, but that's me lol!

I did a Facebook thing this morning and got this....

Sarah took Which type of woman are you? quiz and the result is Lovely Lady
You are lovely and caring. You help others and spread out a lot of sympathy. Your life aim maybe is to serve the people. But your weakness is that you forget about yourself, your own needs. All your time is hold back for your friends and family. You are always there for people in trouble. Ready for any emergency. You make a lot of sacrifices just to be a good human. But every woman has her needs, her longings and a destiny. Don't lose yourself in work or curing other people's souls. You will have your own problems in your life. Another problem is that you don't say your opinion when it's right and important to say it. People trample onto your soul if you are always so kind and lovely and helpful. They will play on you. Though you should try to relax more and enjoy your life, you should not loose the gift that was given to you to help others . Not everyone is created this way... You are unique and rare!

There you go! I'm lovely lol! Facebook says so!

I might do a proper blog on this later though, if I get chance - there's things in there that match with what R says about me, that match with what lots of people have said, but which I don't see as a problem, just as the way I am.

Laters. I must go and defeat the Jedi knight....

I was right....

.... he left me a pillow :-)

And a t-shirt that smells of the not-smell that he has.

Really should sleep - AC will be up in around 6 hours!

Love him, miss him, hope all is well in his world.
