Alright… I started this blog on a Valentine’s Day not to sulk about not having a boyfriend or a lover. The fact is that I DO have a BOYFRIEND and currently flatting with him. It was nice of him that he took time off work today so that we could spend time together, but more importantly, since we have hired the car for the week, we might as well make use the most of it. This was what he suggested and I was delighted with the idea.
I was expecting we could go out and explore the country (yes, I just got here, so would be nice to have a look around right?!). However the plan was interrupted as we need to inspect a rental property as the current landlord recently sold this place so we need find another place soon. This afternoon inspection means we have limited time to wander round, and despite of getting up at 7:30 this morning, finished breakie before 9am where I also did the dishes; my lovely man decided that he would like to do the laundry instead of going out… And during the washing he went back to play his video games. I was like, what the heck?! If you want to do the laundry you should have done so as soon as you got up in order to save time!!!! I even asked you if you want to do the laundry yesterday and you said no, it would wait. Fine, but now it is really disrupting our schedules and it looks like we are not going anywhere today now except for a home inspection and doing grocery shopping…
This was an upsetting morning for me but I kept quiet and did a bit of reading regarding my studies instead. Though too annoyed to concentrate, so I decided start a blog on Word Press to find a place to unleash my anger and disappointment. I was really quiet in my room and though he did came in and check on my a few times, I remained distant and unresponsive towards him. It’s not worth it to pick a fight with him, I mean after all, he is the one paying the rent, buying the groceries and helping finance my studies as well as the moving over to live with him in another country. But if only he could be a bit more romantic and sharpen up on important dates, he would be absolutely perfect!!! But no, we do not live in the perfect, cannot meet the perfect people and so we should learn to live what we have got and appreciate them while we can…
My ice started to break when he wanders off and cook us lunch. Sure, he didn’t realize what’s going on inside me and even played Transformers III while eating to pass time. We did not finish the video as the time was nearly up, and the day goes along to the plain and unstimulating rental inspection as well as grocery shopping. The dim-looking place wasn’t a good hunt despite its handy location, however the agent told us if we wanted the place we will have to start paying rent on the day it is available despite if we our current contract does not end before then. Oh bummer!! Paying double rent and not living there for the first 2~3 weeks? I don’t think so…
It was when we came back he got back to do the dishes and while I was packing stuff away, he suddenly said “Tonight won’t be the night to eat out coz nice restaurants will definitely have the Valentine surcharge”.
“Oh? So do we go out tomorrow night then?” Surprised, and yet starting to feel acknowledged.
“No, not tomorrow, Saturday evening will do.” Ah yes… he has to work early on Saturday morning, so needs to go to bed early on Friday.
“That’s fine. But I was surprised it only came across to you about Valentine dinner!” I mean, c’mon~ This morning while having breakfast the morning programs and shows all mentioned VALENTINE’S DAY!!! Titanium from NZ also covered Jason Mraz’s .
“I know, that was my belated move today,” and there was a cheeky chuckle from my down-to-earth man. Alright, I forgive him!!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Jimmy.
