Phone Protection

Hey Hey! 😀

I was coming home from an outing and It was dark and normally I come back with someone but as it wasn’t my usual group of friends thing I used to do when I was younger, there was no one coming my way. When you are with people you just feel safer then when you are on your own, it’s the whole safety in numbers thing and it still counts even if it’s only two of you together.

The area I was in is ok up to a point, until it starts getting dark (wasn’t that dark it was around quarter past 9 and it’s still kinda light still) all the strange people come out. The kind of people that watch you walk by, try and talk to you or shout things at you basically making you feel uncomfortable and intimidated, why I really don’t know. I called my Special Someone at home. Even though he is not there with me, the fact that I can hear his voice and he knows where I am just makes me feel better about walking on my own. I think its because I feel that he can come look for me or tell someone that he knew where I was, it’s useful in some situations. There are times when I would call and have him be on the phone the whole journey but I didn’t want to disturb him so just asked him to keep me company until the bus top as I was not in the mood to walk the whole way (40mins)

I had said bye to my friend and was trying to make my way through the street to get to the main town bit and get my bus as the shopping mall was closed. A lot of people were just hanging around in front of the closed shops and waiting by the bus stops smoking and staring(very creepy). I remembered another way I could go but I kind of forgot how long that way was. I wasn’t too sure about it so called my Special Someone and told him that I had met with a friend and I was on the way home. He told me he was watching a film so I told him I just wanted company until the bus stop as I didn’t want to disturb him too much. I made my way through my “short cut” and it was getting kind of creepy as there was no one around and there was a lot of bridges ahead and it was a very winding road, the kind where you kind of wonder what’s around the corner. I was in the middle of explaining which friend I had gone out with when I heard a random voice in the background saying “Hi sexy” Eurgh!! Don’t know who this random person though he was but I just carried on talking to my Special Someone like I didn’t even hear him and carried on walking. Think that is the best option sometimes just ignore them. I finally made it to the bus stop and thank my Special Someone for his company. The bus wasn’t going to arrive until a particular time so called up my friend and spoke to her until the exciting part of the bus finally arriving happened and I got home in 10mins YAY!!

What ever I can/ Going the extra mile

Hey Hey! 😀

After recent events I feel I should talk about doing what you can for your Special Someone, even if it is something you are doubtful of or even afraid of. My experience was due to a hospital trip.

 When it comes to surgery it is important to have someone to pick you up and take you home and my Special Someone was going to have surgery and had asked me to accompany him. When we found out what day it was, it turned out I had to work and on top of that the journey did not look like one I could manage with my slight lack of experience with driving. I told him to ask around and that if he really couldn’t find anyone I would take a day off and go with him. As it turns out I had to take him. The journey to the hospital with my Special Someone telling me which way to go and keeping me company was all good but then turned out that he was going to stay a lot longer then we thought and I had to leave to get the car back and again the journey back home was ok. Then came the phone call telling me he was ready to be picked up.  

Here is where the problem started…. There was traffic, the sat nav went crazy, it was hot and sweaty and finally I got lost (thank goodness I fill the petrol up the day before) All I wanted to do was show my Special Someone that I could do it. I could get over my fear of roundabouts and my uncertainty of new roads (it was just over 20mins drive and had humongous roundabouts and fast roads) and pick him up on my own from the hospital and get him safely home. My freak out and disappointment in myself that I had got myself lost and that the only person I could think to call was my Special Someone to get me out of the mess I was in. Luckily he knew the journey very well and with him on speaker phone he talked me through the journey… and I done it!! I got to the hospital. Even though it took my whole day revolving around this appointment I was glad I was there for my Special Someone. He really appreciated my help, support and the Furry Princess jumping in the door bit. I was tired but happy and even though I may not do a journey like that again at least I know I am capable of doing it with the right guidance or directions and my Special Someone’s trust in me. 

There are a lot of things that we struggle with but are able to overcome with the support of our Special People so use that to your advantage and don’t say no. If they need a lift, want help decorating, want your company somewhere or even need help baby sitting just have a go and see what happens. You may be glad you went and done it 😀

Happy Raksha Bandhan

Hey Hey! 😀

To all that celebrate today:

Happy Raksha Bandhan!

To those who don’t know this day, it is the day to celebrate the relationship between brothers and sisters, where the sister ties a rakhi or a sacred thread on her brother’s right hand wrist for his well being and in return receives his protection of her.

May your family be blessed and receive good fortune on this day 😀

Dinner Conversation

Hey Hey! 😀

25661228146_029a87b702_o

When you go out on a date for a meal with your other half, it is important to think about what kind of conversations are ok and what aren’t. It has been said before that politics and religion should never be discussed as people tend to be quite sensitive about those topics and things can go a little wrong.

My Special Someone and I have no issue with those topics as we have been together so long that any topic is comfortable.. well kinda ;0) The kind of conversations we have now are what have you been up to and what the Furry Princess has been doing. As a pet parent the furry one will always come up, it does make you wonder what you would talk about if you didn’t talk about them. People have said especially for parents that date nights are nights that you shouldn’t talk about your children on because you are a couple first, before you become parents and it’s more romantic to think of just the two of you. It is also important to not think of your children’s stress such as school, health, their problems etc. as it could change the mood, I am not entirely sure about this but then again I am not a mummy to a human baby so it could be different.

Serious conversations are the conversations where you want to discuss your problems or some bad news or anything that comes under “not good” and those ones I would definitely not recommend. Dinner conversations are meant to be light and airy and make you feel good about coming out and having some quality time together while having a meal. It is not a place for things that make you never want to have a dinner out together again. So maybe the human baby stress thing could be true…hmm.

Double date dinner conversations are a bit strange from what  I remember. The guy asked us to go swimming in a pond and wouldn’t stop talking about the conservative party :S So not good! Double dates again light and airy like a mini dinner party. Jokes laughter and nooo serious conversations and no bickering with your other halves. Also if you don’t like your friends other half always be civil. Ask about their job and hobbies and what kind of films and music they like and you should be ok.

Making the Most of the Rainy Days

14785568917_60abafc95d_oHey Hey! 😀

I was thinking back to some of the days when it was really rainy but I still went to spend time with my Special Someone. There are many people particularly my friends who will organise their days out around the rain and so days of rain are not favourites even though I beg to differ. Living where I do (London) the rain will come and go as it pleases and when I hit 19years old I was determined to never let the rain control my life(!). I was right to do so as the rainy days have been one of the best days of my life with my Special Someone (well second to the sunny days of course ;oP)

At the start of day together it didn’t always go right. It would be raining really heavy and my coat would be soaking wet just getting to the car, we would then have a wet hug in the car and try and get through the busy rainy traffic to either lunch or back to his place until we decide what we want to eat and then everything changes 😀 We have fun 😀 It doesn’t matter whether we decide to have a nap or just watch T.V or cuddle up on the sofa talking with the Furry Princess curled up on our laps we always manage to have a good day. Sunny days are always  the easiest to enjoy as there are more places to go and more things to do whereas rainy days you are limited but it doesn’t have to be boring. When it’s raining just think of all the things you can do together and just enjoy quality time together.

Don’t let the rain ruin your day and what could be one of the best moments of your life.

Just because…Shoes!

Hey Hey! 😀

Have you ever been out browsing or shopping online and seen something that would suit your other half perfectly?It’s not an extravagant gift and nor is it something for any upcoming occasions but you just want to buy it!

I have done so on many occasion. I just order and send even though I could wait a few months and save it for a birthday or Christmas or something I would rather that he had it now. I have done so with flowers, magnets, trousers, knee pads and many other things. All very useful or pretty in their own way and it made me really happy to be giving something. I realised that “Just because” can be an occasion on it’s own and that it can be a surprise and a form of affection for your other half all in one 😀

My Special Someone has done something very similar. I was randomly trying to find a pair of shoes online and asked for some advice by email on whether it was a good deal or not and for some reason one evening he had sat down and had his own little online shopping thing. When I had spoken to him a few days after he had told me he had bought me  not one, not two but THREE pairs of shoes! He doesn’t even know why he did that but he did. Got a bit carried away! ;o) hehe I am looking forward to seeing what shoes he has picked out for me and I guess I will do him a little cat walk to see how the shoes fit.

Being giving to your Loved one is a very sweet thing to do especially when the only thing you get in return is a  nice warm feeling inside and a feeling of happiness for seeing your Special Someone’s face when they receive it.

Random, unexpected and completely mad but there you go. Why don’t you….. just because :0P
