The day started really miserable with a deep frost. Neither of us showed any enthusiasm for getting up, not much new there. We played sleepy puppies huddled together and for once instead of heading off into a deep coma we chatted. Not sure about what for much of the conversation but then my beloved came out with a random statement, “ I think you should try on some of my dresses, I think you would like some of them, especially the silk one “!
What do you say in reply to a statement like that except, “errrr, I do“, not the first proposal of hers I have answered that way!
I obliged by trying on the one she brought through and we discussed how it fitted, oops a wee bit tighter than usual round the middle!, like two friends trying to decide on a purchase in a shop, entirely normal!
Knowing how hard it is for many couples to come to terms with this sort of situation I almost feel guilty for having found so much acceptance. Sometimes like when out with friends for a meal she was pushing clues out as if trying to get this whole thing out in public and over with. My inner time table may find itself scrapped without warning, not that I shall complain.
