Whilst standing in the kitchen,dealing with the seamingly neverending washing up,I looked out of the window into the garden. Nothing unusual about that, I do that several times a day but today there is a space, a big space infact because the trampoline has gone.
I’ve been looking forward to it going as nobody uses it anymore.
But seeing the space now reminded me of a conversation I had with my Dad, several years ago. We were discussing getting a bigger trampoline for the kids and he said ‘you’ll never have any garden for yourself at this rate with all of their stuff out here’, I laughed and said ‘ that’s fine,as long as I have the patio to sit on they can fill the rest, when they’re older I’ll have the space back’.
Fast forward and that day has arrived now I have my space back, how quick did that day come around and what I wouldn’t give just to go back and savour those times again.
Life feels like it’s simply flying by.
Another little nudge, another friendly reminder that time waits for no one and nothing lasts forever.
Letting out a huge sigh, Sandra turned and patted the small head staring intently up at her ‘I don’t know Pam’ she said to her wagging tailed companion ‘I just don’t know’.
Opening her phone and reading through the text conversation once again, Sandra managed to avoid the temptation of opening google to assess her eligibility of indeed becoming a nun and plonked her mobile down on the table,slightly firmer than she had anticipated~bugger!
‘Right’ she said, once again as if half expecting a reply from someone.
‘I’m off to make use of the gym’s shower and coffee facilities and who knows maybe even their exercise equipment!’.
Honestly two words from a male and I’m dropping sugar sachets and spilling coffee all over myself.
Trust you to get coffee all down a white top, so what did you say to him then?
Nothing he said ‘hello gorgeous’ at the exact time I dropped the sugar, I was flustered enough trying to pick it up, that’s how I spilt the damn coffee, what a waste.
Yes I would say that was a pretty wasted opportunity right there my friend.
Noooo I mean what a waste of coffee! Anyway I’ve decided that I’m getting too old for this online dating lark, I mean seriously some guy messaged me last night saying ‘I had a cracking pair of Norks’ I had to google what that even means ffs.
Hahaha well you can’t give up, its too funny.
Well I’m so glad I’m entertaining, maybe I’ll put that to good use and write ‘the flustered girls guide to finding love.’
If in life you have someone whom you consider to be ‘the one that got away’ Isn’t it slightly strange that,that exact person could well be thinking the complete opposite? Eg~they might think of you and say oh thank goodness he/she got away?! Two sides and all that.
