ok so I have a day off today (just when I needed it that was lucky)
I thought I would have a lie in, take a nice hot shower, sort out my bedroom (move bed etc) ready for window man to arrive.
08.05 hes banging on the door to be let in. I'm not dressed (throw on some trousers and jumper) there are piles of clothes and books on my bed. Quickly remove the empty bottles that are lined up under the window (only non alcoholic wine but still doesn't look good). There is no way that the window will shut the hinges are all either buckled or broken. Apparently they are pyramid hinges (see I learn new things all the time). It is probably going to be another three weeks before he can fit me in, plus a couple of weeks to book the work in. I'm looking at 5 weeks (it should be done before christmas). He could have taken the window off its hinges and secured it shut. But I would rather have a draft for 5 more weeks than no air for that long.
I have just been drafting an email to Romeo, I shall probably wait a day or two before I send it. I want to make sure I say exactly what I want to say rather than a knee jerk reaction to a text I got from him yesterday. Before you go jumping to conclusions it wasn't a 'dear John' or whatever the female version is. I won't go into details suffice to say that he hurt me. I don't think that was his intention, he was cross with me and let me know it. But on the plus side at least I know he is still alive after 4.5 weeks of nothing.
I do think it was very timely that I got his text last night when I can stay home this morning licking my wounds instead of going to work and being all bright and breezy when all I want is to cry. (has an alien taken over my body? I don't do crying so why now?)
