Pete's Coming Back

Pete has been away in London all week working and was threatening to stay there and work the weekend.  But he has just rung to say that he will be home tonight.  The first day he goes away, there is a certain novelty about eating what I want, when I want, going to bed when I want and having complete control of the TV's remote control.  But this feeling of independence only lasts for a day and then I begin missing him.  For example: I have to get up every day at 5.30 to make time to walk Alfie before work.  I do have to do all the cooking, when quite often Pete cooks. I have to buy my own drinks if I go down to the sailing club.  I have to load and unload the dishwasher and clean the bathroom before the cleaner comes (!).  And finally, Alfie is very good company but he won't argue with me about politics, work, football on tv or anything!  Here is Pete at his happiest, at the helm of Carpe Diem.
Hurry home, I miss you!!!!! xxxxx

  1. Fran... you have said it all! They are a real pain to have around but I feel lost when he is away. Goes for my daughter too - and she is a bigger pain still!

  2. Grrrr..... he's back! So far he has taken the wallpaper off the walls so that the dehumidifier can dry the walls out (long story will come back to that!) but not covered anything up, so dust and dirt everywhere! And he is a plaster/painter & decorator by trade! Carried some compost into the garden for me and put it on top of my baby brussel sprouts! Still we do love them!!!! Janys - really good to hear from you, no news on your mooring yet?

  3. I've had the same for the last four weeks, Fran. Koos has been away with the Hennie H, and I also enjoyed even the first week, but it's a pain having to manage Sindy all the time (she can't be left alone at home), to make my own meals (Koos does most of our cooking) and make sure his barge is okay while I have to go to work and try to sort out the Vereeniging. I don't know how much longer this situation will have to go on, but yes, I miss just him too! We always have something to talk about, and now I only have a dog or myself to talk to ;-p

    I'm glad your Pete is home again now. Enjoy your weekend!
