Simply a moment - March 2013

It's Friday, it's 3.24pm. In one minute I will have to go out of the house and across the road to collect Miss Em from school.
I stand in the breakfast room and stare unseeing out of the window. It is raining. I am waiting, something I am not very good at because it gives me time to think and that doesn't always end well. Today I am concentrating on not thinking about going out through the door.
Then I think of Mr M. He is in the study sitting at his computer, trying to achieve another level on Candy Crush Saga. He joined FB on Sunday after several years of pouring scorn on "Social networking" and saying he had no use for it. I feel the smile spread across my face as I remember the words I wrote on my status "Muahahahahahahaha, Mr M has come over to the darkside! seduced by 'Words with Friends' he was."
The smile has turned to a grin, I walk quickly to the study and plant a kiss on the top of his head. "Thank you," he says turning his face for a proper kiss. "Any particular reason?" he asks, after I have kissed him properly. "No," I say, smiling, "Just that I love you and I am going to fetch Em." "OK" He turns back to his candy game and I leave the house without a qualm.

How tenderly you have recounted this! and hoping that it made going out the door easier ... Sounds as if Mr. M is going to have plenty to keep him busy while you craft :). Lovely of you to link up and thank-you so much for joining in again this month. Hoping you've found it enjoyable and meaningful too...

I chuckled out loud 'cause I know only so well how those our old "geezers" frown upon something and then, the next thing you know, it's the best thing since sliced bread...
Wonderful story.

Cheers~

I know a few people wh've recently gone over to 'the darkside' too lately! [My parents included] there must be somethign in the air!

Your word have put me in mind of how I used to describe my recovery from depression/not wanting to go out alone.

It was like having a drawer in your house that sticks. One you always have to tug hard to get open. Then one day ... after years of struggling with it .. you realise it opened really easily. It got fixed - and you can't pinpoint when. But suddenly - it works! And you can just get on with the rest of your day without a fight.

I hope this makes sense!

Julie :-)
