I went shopping today. Nothing much, just out with my sister and brother. My Brother’s birthday is tomorrow, and my sister wanted to go out and get him something nice.
So, off we went, shopping.
It was a nice day. I was dreading the mood of my niece, a good mood and she’d be lovely and funny – her usual self. But over-tired? She’d be a nightmare. I, unfortunately, had to deal with both moods – as well as being the ‘favourite’ uncle. Stressful.
Still, it was a lovely day, a nice change of pace, and it was nice to spend some time with my sister and brother together. Plus I bought some trainers and a couple of t-shirts too so, you know pretty nice day 🙂
I also got some chocolate (see the picture and try not to be too jealous)… And some cookies. They’ll see me through the rest of my holiday whilst I spend my time drafting up my short story…
As for everything else? I feel pretty ok. (E) needs her space, I can happily give her that and, when she’s ready I’m still going to be here all heart-eyed for her just as before 🙂
I still have her Christmas present here too. We’ve not got around to exchanging yet – I’m still excited for her to finally have it!
I’m still a little annoyed about the glaring mistakes on my surprise for her, but I’m sure it’ll be ok. Like I said earlier, it’s me all over – I just have to learn to live with the fact that not all things in this world can be perfect! Something I’m trying to come to terms with quickly!
I have to admit, though, the more time me and (E) spend apart, (both messages and dates) just makes me want to see/message her more. I like that it works like this and that the feelings are not just fading. It proves to me they’re real, and whether I knew that already or not – it’s always nice to realise it all over again, hehe 🙂
This will be my last post tonight, I’m in a good place today, so I’m going to enjoy my new trainers and just chill reading my Writers’ Forum magazine 🙂
