and what did you do today Darling?

“Oh nothing special – when you left I got the children up
Fed, washed and dressed them, put them on the bus
Did the washing – Hung it out to dry Did the ironing
Baked a cake – Made chocolate buns
Took the car to the Shopping Centre
Delivered my dry cleaning and collected yours
Did the supermarket shopping
Long delay at the check-out
Ran to the Coffee Shop
Late for coffee with a friend
put the shopping in the car Drove home
Brought the shopping in – put it away
Baked more cake
Got things ready for the party – set the table
blew up the balloons
I met them off the school bus
seven including our two
She got nice presents
blew out the candles.
We played Pass the Parcel
and they left after two and a half hours
We cleaned up the mess
No permanent damage
Did the dishes
Cooked dinner – Roasted chicken.
Nothing special

Moving in

Saving the rent is a great excuse
Two, together can eat for less
“Think of all the money we will save”
“With your furniture and my bits and pieces –
We can be really snug!”
“Think of all the time we can save”
There are lots of good reasons
Loads of good excuses
but
When you find that special someone
Who makes you feel complete
Who makes you feel alive
Apart – is not really an option

We get to be together – always
We get to shape our lives

We will have a wonderful time
– trying

Many of us carry
excess emotional baggage
