i am afraid I have taken to my bed.  I drove to the next town today to get some dog food with my son.  I thought it was the next step and a step towards going back to work.  It felt good to get my independence back.   The only problem is that it has put too much strain on my back.  It has disappointed me as I thought I had recovered and was ready to go back to work very soon.  I do have another 2 and a half weeks off yet and it looks like I am going to have to take this time.

Does anyone else have a boyfriend who’s bad habits drive you mad ? My boyfriend has lived with me for over a year and in recent weeks he has only started closing one curtain. What on earth is all that about? It’s just as easy to close both of the curtains at the same time.  It grates on me.  He also has another bad habit of throwing his dirty washing on the floor.  To be fair he has done this since he has moved it and I have even put a washing basket in the bedroom, but the clothes still can’t make it in there.  Although when I bring the clean washing upstairs in the basket he has an annoying habit    of putting his dirty washing in there.  I then do not know which clothes are dirty or clean.  I have told him I am going to chuck him out if he carries on doing this.  He just laughs and ignore me.  I am obviously joking. He is wonderful in many other ways but two habits really annoy me. I am sure there are more, if I think about it.

I think I have a number of bad habits too and the main one is that if he tells me to do something I do the opposite.  I don’t like to be told what to do, Maybe this is down to my past.  I am now trying to at least do a couple of things he wants me to do.  It was very hard at first, but it’s getting easier as we go on. I think it’s due to me being very independent and being in control of my life.  I do think when you meet someone who you want to share the rest of your life with you need to compromise.

The weather is warming up again.  It’s very close and there isn’t much air about.  I think sleeping will be uncomfortable tonight.  My daughter says that she might sleep here one night this week.  I am really looking forward to it if it happens.  Again I am not getting my hopes up.

Right it’s time to say good bye.  Speak to you tomorrow xxx
