Ob; re poo bags. I will confess they have become such a part and parcel of my life that they have been called into service for
- child who thought they were about to throw up over my nice clean museum floor (teacher was very impressed at the speed I moved)
- rubbish bin at an event (didn't we look organised and smart and tidy!)
and so many other things. I even find them in my posh going out clasp bag thingy ( why don't dresses have pockets is an entirely different rant I could have).
PDoc: I hope you managed a glass of water with it. I think being home alone affects people differently. For my family in the military it's part and parcel but they almost trained into how cope with it and of course have a big network of people. For the likes of me; I honestly don't mind it that much when my partner is away (okay so I mind a little when it's on my birthday and he's sending me pictures of the amazing meals he's had out in Japan while I wrestle the dog in out of the garden but...)
If I go away however it seems like a big thing. Perhaps because I'm the one who knows what is in the cupboards and freezer ;)
Take the opportunity to remind your OH how much you value each other.
Last night the weather report said it was going to rain today. Now it's saying heat wave. I KNEW I should have risked getting the washing done to go on the line!
Wonky if you're around you'll understand the big deal this is. Yesterday I brought a pinafore dress for work. Why? Because I am fed up of smart trousers not having any pockets!! It's ridiculous you can't keep your phone by your side. I am not a skirt wearing person, dresses come out only to startle friends who weren't even aware I had legs (I don't joke; a friend for years actually thought that after The Crash I had lost my legs - he met me some years after the event - because i never wore feminine things like skirts and high heels). But I NEED pockets!
