I am back in England….but Ben…Ben is stuck for another few days because despite working overtime all week, they still have not finished the work. I am a little disappointed, but c’est la vie.
Hell – it is cold here! We have only been away for a few weeks. We left when it was hot, real hot. But I seem to have arrived back in the middle of winter. Damn it’s cold. Our house was like Antarctica. I have turned the heating on but it seems to be taking a century to warm up. I am frigid – literally – I do not mean that my libido is failing.
So just like the girl in the photo above, I found myself one of Ben’s hats and wrapped myself up in the rug we have draped over the arm of the sofa. My head feels so cold. Worst still, I don’t have Ben’s warm body to keep me warm tonight. He is still walking around wearing tees I bet.
I have to quarantine now. But as I work remotely that is no biggy. I am going to make the most of the next few days, as far as making sure everything is perfect for Ben when he is back. I have a list of things I need to do. I am gonna ask for someone to come from the garage to pick the car up to take it for a service. I am gonna ring the drycleaners and see if they will pick up a duvet, Ben’s winter coat and some other things that need dry cleaning. I will do a big online shop to be delivered here and cook a couple of big traybakes to freeze (for days when there’s no time to cook). I need to pull out our sweaters and scarves. This whole place needs a good dust over and shine up. The garden is a mess. I have plenty to keep me busy while I am quarantining.
Ben was impressed by the pussy cupcakes I made. So I thought maybe I will bake something for him to eat when he is back. I am not a great baker but he was very pleased by my baking. I like to please Ben. I like the way he rewards me.
For now…its just me with a bowl of pasta (dried pasta from the cupboard and sauce from a jar, which we felt impelled to stock up on back in the spring, along with a huge stock of wine) with Ben’s beanie hat and this wooly rug. It’s good to be back with our stuff around us. I just want Ben back with me now.
Goodnight Benny-boo! Love you!
