How are you?
Glad you had a mostly
lovely break. I'm sorry to hear about the disappointments but I must say I noted how you still recognised the positives, i.e. "luckily my niece didn't realise
"my parents got to see our new kitchen and the final version of the living room
"still lovely to see them all
Quick fire round right back at you now!
How's work? How's your dad's shoulder? Are you more settled with your new living room now?
All the best with chasing up the MRI result. I hope your pain lessens as we move into the spring.
Christmas was lovely thank you. I didn't feel at all stressed which is remarkable for me!
I really enjoyed work as I spent the shift with a really funny and positive colleague of mine.
We spent the afternoon and evening with my one brother, sister in law and their two children.
Obviously, plans were changed. The gifts for my other brother and his family, plus my boyfriend, are now being stored in the attic until we can meet again in (hopefully!) a few months.
Overall, it was a lovely day though thanks. I had loads of nice smellies which was exactly what I asked for. I probably have enough to last me the whole of this year!
New Year's Eve was okay. How about yours?
Work is going well thanks. Although recently we've started having positive cases with staff and residents. We can only do what we can to reduce the spread and keep ourselves, our colleagues, the residents, our loved ones and the public safe. <3 I have fortunately received the first dose of the vaccine.
I'm still with the boyfriend. I enjoy his company albeit it virtual. It's my issue but I'm still massively
anxious about my weight/shape in comparison to him.
He's talked of moving in with my parents and I on a short-term basis. (I suggested it. Oops.
But in all honesty, I didn't think for one minute he'd actually leave his mother alone during a pandemic or that he'd leave all his home surroundings. Both are totally reasonable of course.)
But now he's apparently set on it.
I honestly don't think it would work.
I like my space too much and I think he'd smother me.
I also don't think he'd be happy here without his Xbox (I hate the fact that he still plays this!), super fast internet and 50inch television. Despite his mother (with whom he lives) currently being in agreement of him moving here, I don't think realistically
that she would
actually be okay with it (put simply, she can be one hell of a moody, nasty bitch.
So, getting myself into another of these pickles, we've agreed to re-evaluate based on the risk posed by coronavirus cases within our locality and places of work. He's of the mindset that things will improve in the next few weeks. I'm realistic. I know he won't move in with us if this is the deciding factor, which ultimately is
the better, healthier and safer option.
I'd like him to move in with me if I lived alone but it's a whole different set up when parents are involved. For the sake of several months more, it seems more sensible to continue saving towards sharing a place together. By then, hopefully things will ease and we will be able to meet again in person.
I appear to have waffled on a bit. Sorry!
I hope you are keeping well. Keep me posted on how you're doing.
