Having my boyfriend, Greg, back after 2 weeks on my lonesome! YAY!! 🙂
Greg went home to visit friends and family back in South Africa, but unfortunately I couldn’t tag along……no cash & not enough leave from work. It was really horrible without him at home, and on various occasions I actually found myself discussing my day with our cat, Puddy. She didn’t seem to care, as long as I ended up giving her lots of head scratches! (Yes, I’m aware that I sound like a crazy cat lady….) As you can see from the picture below, as long as she’s happy and comfortable nothing else matters!
Whilst Greg was away, I also got a really bad cold and ended up self-medicating and prostrate on the sofa. I felt terribly sorry for myself, because when I get a cold, I don’t just get a cold, I get “man-flu” and Greg normally takes care of my every need. Now, I had to make my own soup and tuck myself in. Trust me, being alone and sick really sucks!
Well, the 2 weeks dragged on, but yesterday morning he finally got home. It’s so great having him back & we spent a lazy day drinking loads of coffee, watching old movies and just catching up. I even made my very first Apple Crumble which turned out amazing (tooting my own horn a little!). I’m clearly turning into some kind of domestic Goddess! 😉
To me, happiness is lounging on the couch with my fat kitty & my wonderful boyfriend. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder!
So, what’s happiness to you?
