I went to boarding school at the age of 6. I joke about the fact that I haven’t lived at home since I was 5. After school I went to university and lived alone for a while and then with friends. Then I moved to the city and moved in with my ex husband. After the divorce I lived alone again.
I love my family dearly and I would love to see them daily. There is nothing as special and warm as a hug from your mum at the end of the day or laughing at dad jokes. Spending time around the dinner table and watching tv. Its the little things that make family special.
I only get that on weekends and on the holidays.
But now with A’s family I get it all the time.
So many of my friends ask if it isn’t weird that he lives at home still, and I have to hang out with his parents all the time. Well, the answer is a definite No. Strangely, I love it.
I love the warmth, I love the home cooked meals and the way his mom invites me for tea in the afternoons. His dads stories and the way the family bickers every now and then. Its warm and its homely and I spend 5-6 nights a week there, so much time that its started to feel like home.
After A came to bed at 05h00 this morning, we then woke up at 07h00 because we had t run a 10km this morning for training. Needless to say – we only did 5km’s and we walked and A held onto me the whole way, looking as if he was either going to hurl or cry or probably a combination of both.
Another 9 friends came over at 14h00 and hen we started again. With beers and next thing three bottles of gin were gone and we were playing Indian war signs. Its been so much fun having the house to ourselves and being able to host and have everyone over 🙂
Hopped into bed by 21h00 which was amazing – naturally I was slightly annoyed with A because we said we’d spend the night alone but hey – thats life – and him and everyone else went out partying.
We had an awesome dinner party where I made greek salad, roasted baby potatoes, lam chops and chicken kebabs. I was feeling so inspired that I even made blue velvet cupcakes and I forgot to take photos!
My best friends came over and the two of A’s friends. Naturally we landed up going out to a bar and I got to bed at about 2 – but A and the boys thought it be wise if they stayed up until 5am.
We’re housesitting for my aunt and uncle until Sunday and its great, we’re so excited 🙂
One of A’s best friends, Matty, as just come back from Kenya and we haven’t seen him for bout 3 months so he came and crashed our romantic dinner. We landed up drinking 5 bottles of wine between the three of us and sat on the veranda watching the storm pass until 01h00 in the morning.
We were making jokes that we probably all going to have to move into a house together one day. Me and A and all his friends because no other woman seems to put up with them 🙂 was so sweet.
I love all those boys so much.
A arrives at the airport at 13:20 and I cannot wait!
I am so excited to see him I can hardly contain myself – we’ve been sending dirty texts for like the past three days already lol. And we are so glad this break is over – we are never going away without each other again! It was the absolute worst.
So excited I can hardly contain myself!
Came back to the farm today. Going back home tomorrow and looking forward to it.
Spoke to A on the phone and he said it was so nice to hear my voice again and it was amazing to hear his. His words ‘we’re never going away without each other again, its such a nightmare, I miss you too much’. How adorable – I’m grinning like a fool.
I cannot wait to see him.
I’m so excited!
So excited to be back home with my bunz. Went to his house at 3 this afternoon already. Made love and took a nap 🙂 its incredible how much I missed him over the weekend.
Cooking dinner for him while he’s at soccer 🙂
That moment when you find yourself singing into the tv remote control as if it were a mic. With your mum and sister in law next to you belting out the lyrics to roxette! Drinking copious amounts of wine, discussing life and love and sex.
Thats the best 🙂
My mum and I have spent most of our weekend drinking wine, cooking and chatting about everything.
She knows me better than I know myself even.
This has been such a special weekend so far 🙂
My dad an brother have gone away for business for a week so my mum is home alone, so I’m off to the farm to spend the weekend with her.
So excited 🙂
