What a whirlwind of a day it has been!
Work was CRAZY!!
I was so glad to get home, when I got in my dear Ralph asked if I would like to go to IKEA.
Really all I wanted to do was take my uniform off and chill after all the craziness of work.
But I knew he wanted to get some extra shelves to sort out the storage in the kitchen.
So I smiled nice and wifey and said "Yes Darling" as long as we have tea first.
So we had a very healthy meal of grilled trout, baby potatoes, broccolli,
cauliflower and carrots and I felt so angelic. My food has been so good today.
So off to IKEA we went and it was very pleasant, Monday must be their quiet night.
We bought a few bits and bobs, got some inspration for my new craft shed,
did I tell you I was getting a new one? ;o)
I'm getting a bigger one and Ralph is having my old one..lol
After IKEA we called in to M&S and bought a few foodie treats,
don't panic, they are all calorie counted and extremely healthy....
These are no ordinary treats they are M&S treats.
Little packs of veg that I love but Ralph doesn't all on offer.
Low calorie lemon mousse which is to die for....
I really could live out of M&S if the budget allowed.
We got back home and went on line to check out phones.
I had remembered we are due for a free upgrade on our contract this month
and I am torn between a Blackberry and and Iphone.
We can't upgrade until 15th Feb so looking for feedback if anyone has any?
I came up with a title for my journal which the lovely BearFriend pointed out is not about the beginning of my sixth decade but my seventh!!!! I was never that good at maths, thanks BearFriend you are getting a bear hug sometime soon :o)
It came to me in bed last night, whilst talking to my darling. We do a review of our relationship every three months or so and last night was one of those occassions. I find it very healthy for our marriage to do this and it works so well. I have always been the kind of person that bottles things up and then the silliest of things makes me blow up.
Since being with Ralph this doesn't happen, outside of our relationship it may, but not within. I was trying to find the words to tell him how I feel now and couldn't. Telling him that I didn't feel I had to make an effort with him sounded wrong and I was tying myself up in knots with words. I just feel so right with him but couldn't tell him how. Then I just blurted out "I am finally me!" He knew exactly what I meant because he feels the same way. We don't have to try, we don't have to behave in a certain way, we just have to be who we are with each other and it is right, so very right.
Boy oh boy do I blether on...
So my journal will called "Finally Me"
Mood = Great
Food = Great
Today I am thankful for:
My job, manic or not I am grateful for it.
My home, it may be small but it is my haven.
M&S, a little indulgence now and again does you good.
