Window window why won't you close

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?)

Holy cow. What a palaver. Why does everything seem to take so long?! Grrr...

As for Romeo, I'm glad he's been in touch... what's his story then? To be angry with you after he's ignored you for a month, that's crisp!

I'm home too today, let me know if you need to talk...

Who knew there were pyramind hinges? Or actually different types of hinges? LOL

I'm glad to hear you've finished crying. I don't understand why Romeo would be cross with you after so long a silence but I like that you are not stewing about it and are responding to him with a clear head.

Why is nothing every easy with tradesmen, mind you I would have been amazed if you had said he had done it straight away..xx

nitebyrd he is angry because I sent him an email through one of his businesses because I was worried about him. he has told me to ONLY use his private email in future

the man sounds too precious! for his own good - what does he expect if you don't hear from him for so long? he's lucky it wasn't me or he'd have got more than an email to his work add!

Lady in red said...

maybe it's time to tell him exactly what is in your head. coz i realised that guys generally don't get it when we pussyfoot around with emotive words. yup! you have to tell it like it is: short, sharp sentences. not buts. no ifs.

Lady in red said...

mel I am sure that once he got my response ..... a carefully considered calm email he probably does wish he had handled that better

Lady in red said...

andrea I have made it clear what is in my mind, no pussy footing around treading on eggshells with this man, a hard lesson learnt.

right from the start I have said how I feel. It does seem to work with him.

No doubt things have moved on since you wrote this. Hope that whatever is going on that you are taking care of you here,even if Romeo isn't
hugsxx
