All of the above. And he didn't even get a plate.

From your past postings it sounds like you're a pretty tough cookie. Many kind hearts here are wishing you the best.

Good vibes to you, too, Katie.

that is pretty much what i am doing , then i feel guilty when things don't get done. so wallow, i will. thanks so much!

I am sitting here waiting for bf to get close enough to home to start cooking the pork for stir fry. He must think I'm a wizard. I creep on him using the "find my iPhone" app lol. We have a family plan and both phones are in my name, so I can look at a map and see exactly how far from home he is. I know it's sort of creepy, but I only use it to have a better idea when to start dinner. He is really bad about telling me when he will get home, because he doesn't check his phone much when he's driving (which is smart!)

skittle, you really should tell him what you are doing and why. i mean, if it's really innocent he'll understand. otherwise, it appears you don't trust him and are spying.
not good.

I like that he is so amazed that dinner is always 5 min away when he gets home lol. It wouldn't be nearly as impressive if he knew how I did it. I'll tell on myself some day.

well, good luck, but it's a bad practice for such a small thing.

mistrust is huge, and you're risking bringing that into your relationship for a gimmick.

you should at least make him aware that it's possible for you to be able to do. you know, at some other time so he doesn't figure out your culinary trickery. then it's on him not to be a dumbass.

Morning guys

This morning I am going to the physio, so love getting my shoulder massaged once a fortnight

Steve is then going to the physio tonight for the first time to see what they can do for his back..is is certainly muscular but he has had this pain for about a year now...I told him it was time to get it looked at

Hope everyone has had a lovely day!

You are on holidays now aren't you Tom?
