From the very start of our relationship, Neil proclaimed Wednesday to be ‘BeckaDay’.
This is the one day of the week that we will spend together whether it be going to the cinema, having dinner, or just cuddling on the sofa watching Gilmore Girls it is the one day we… well, put it like this, there has to be quite the major emergency to stop ‘our time’.
Today, though, we were going to have a cleaning day. The last few weeks has meant that we have been a little ‘lapse’ with the whole housekeeping thing. We currently live in a four room flat – a kitchen that has no storage to speak of, a bathroom that is never warm, a bedroom that needs more storage and places to put girl things and a living/dining room that is very very full of furniture…but still needs more storage.
One of the things that I never realised about moving into a man’s flat was that… a man has lived there… for a while.
Stupid? Me? Yes.
None of the furniture matches, and when I moved in, he had 2 armchairs but no sofa. There is a red wall in the living room, and the bedroom is painted blue. The rest of the flat is in man colours
Now, there is a table, and the joyous sofa, clothes are hung up and the bathroom has girly things in it. Neil is awesome when it comes to girly things… He has no problem with going to the shop for Tampax and completely understands the need for chocolate and chick flicks (yes, I even have him watching Glee - his favourite character is Sue)… and he is coming round to the idea of fresh fruit. He now steals my Strawberry Activia Yoghurt.
We were having a cleaning day but…
The best laid plans…
I got some awesome news about work and then we went on a mammoth conversation about the news and how things might change (all in a good way) and… we got lost in the land of what if. So I proclaimed a moratorium on the topic until the news becomes news.
Today was a very good day.
It was the kind of day where you define a word that you made up to entertain the dog.
