Actually, what he might appreciate is some time for just the two of you. Any chance of organising someone to have the kids for the evening and overnight?
If you ever really need someone but don't have anyone... I'm CRB checked.
You probably don't know me well enough though, but the offer is there.
I hope you think of something! How about lunch at your favourite restaurant and then a walk by the river/on the walls? Or is that too simple... (It's what we did on Valentine's Day
Aaw Celeste that's really sweet. Thankyou.
I don't know you very well you are right but that was a really kind thought and I appreciate it. What you did for Valentines sounds fab!! It's the sort of thing we've done for the past two years but we've decided on buying a present this year. He plays guitar so I'm considering something on that front.....
or I bought him a watch a number of years ago which is currently sitting in a drawer unworn as the battery has run out. I initially thought he may have misplaced it until I went rummaging yesterday and so was considering a new one. ... maybe I could get the battery replaced and give it a polish up and represent it to him in a fancy box??? (with something else of course)
or maybe he needs a new one .... as he's put on a bit of weight over the years (that he keeps trying to lose) and can find his older rings tight ... maybe he needs a new one with a stretchy or adjustable strap????
I'm still thinking.......
My random comment for today - My Dad died 17 years ago today. 17 years is a LONG
time. I'm not sure if anyone close to me has remembered!!! (My sister will have but whether we'll speak today I don't know) I'm ok but just feel a bit ... well flat comes to mind. I'm sad for what we've missed out on together but 17 years takes you past the point of the pain being too much to bear so crying doesn't come..... It's a very strange feeling....
