As I awoke this morning, opened my bedroom window to let the fresh air in, the day was dark and cloudy with a few threatening clouds above! I wondered if it would improve in order to have our new constitutional walk later.
My dearest significant other half appears with a breakfast tray, two boiled eggs, soldiers perfectly cut with much less butter on this time (after all he is cutting me down to get me fit) the best of sea salt carefully placed on the plate, a lovely cup of tea in my favourite cup! It’s 8am and all I need now is a good black and white film
With pillows puffed up, I settled down to a little me time, reflecting on how lucky I am to have such a caring husband, even though he likes to take over on all things! But that’s not a bad thing, he just has to be busy and have a project! And currently I am his latest one!
To be honest I am not always sure, I want my breakfast at this time, but of course as he wakes very early most mornings, and is keen to build up my health so there isn’t much I can do when it arrives!
After eating my breakfast leaving 2 of the 4 soldiers, settling down to my film, up he pops again with freshly brewed coffee, ah lovely I say!
He knows well that I enjoy two cups a day, I am very particular about coffee, it’s has to be Colombian- strength four, a little cream in the cup before pouring in the freshly brewed coffee, and after a little training and a few attempts he is normally getting it right!
I had hardly finished the first cup when cup two is brought up, I said my grateful thanks as usual, without taking my eyes off the film, absorbed in the plot and not thinking too much I began to drink my second cup, it was very creamy this time I thought, when minutes later I felt really sick, followed by bringing up all that had been provided so lovingly by my significant other.
Well, it was everywhere, so my ‘me time’ turned into a frenzy of clearing the bed, duvet, pillows etc, I opened every window, ran the bath of cold water to take off the offending deposits, rushed down stairs with the first load for the washing machine, with all the white bedding ready to follow!
Photographs not being displayed here, don’t want to spoil your next meal!
My dear hubby returns home from his daily shopping to hear about the goings on, he goes upstairs to be met by the aroma of the dilemma and gets back in the car to return to the shops for air freshener, muttering that he may have to sleep in the other room this evening!
With the hit and miss weather conditions, our mighty quilt managed to partly dry, the white bedding was carefully pegged out only to be brought in minutes later when my significant other rushed out to retrieve them all, during a heavy downpour.
He likes being busy!
So with a fresh bed made up, hubby in a dry outfit, hair been towel dried, the washing hung indoors, a hearty lunch eaten, the bedroom now smelling of roses! We are back on track! Of course I didn’t get to see the end of my film. But as they say ‘tomorrow is another day’ !
I did however mention too much cream in the coffee ! and I would prefer to have it a little later in the morning and not in bed!
NB. Hubby just asked me where I thought he bought the fresh air canisters from, I guessed right, it’s Aldi, he asked how I knew, well you weren’t long I said, ah well he said I put my blue flashing lights on!
You just got to laugh, don’t you? Time for a cup of tea from my favourite cup!
