Let there be light
You may have noticed a lack of posts over the last few days and, if past experience is anything to go by, you'll have been wondering if there's been a problem. The answer to that is 'possibly' only some of you won't consider it a problem and will just be pleased for me.
My difficulty is that, following my week away, Ash has decided that he wants to be with me all the time. Not in a clingy way you understand but in a companionable way which makes my feelings even more complicated. He invites me on walks, he sits with me at lunch time or when I'm having a coffee and he wants to talk to me about all sorts of things. That should be perfectly lovely and mostly it is but sometimes, just sometimes, I'd like time to myself without feeling guilty and if I had that time I could write the blog but I don't and so I can't. This post comes courtesy of Ash falling asleep in front of the television tonight but that doesn't always happen so, for a while, future posts might be a little sporadic. Just so you know.
On a different note I want to tell you that yesterday I fixed the light in the bathroom. It hasn't worked for months and the electrician has been noticeable by his absence so I plucked up courage to investigate the problem. Some of my friends expressed doubts that I should even be attempting it but I promised that I would turn the electricity off first which seemed to allay some of their fears (I've no idea what the others were, I wasn't listening) and got on with it. I used a proper step ladder instead of my usual stool, took a selection of screwdrivers up with me and dismantled the fitting. The problem seemed to be that it was full of dust and debris from the ceiling which is original from when the house was built in the early 1800s so I emptied it all out, screwed the thing back together, switched the electricity back on and pulled the cord.
Hey presto, we had light and how I wished I'd looked in the very beginning instead of thinking I needed a man to fix it for me. You'd think I'd know by now but I'm still conditioned, from all my years with Ash, to assume that I need someone else to do the practical stuff.
Am feeling pretty good about myself right now!!
