Gosh! I have had the most AMAZING family weekend EVER, this weekend and BOY have I enjoyed this delicious dose of sunshine. I’ve laughed, shopped, relaxed, and lunched with the babies. Junior chose to lawn mow with Grandma today (boys and their toys,) whereas Ruby wanted me to take her for jasmin tea and fried seaweed pancakes.
After lunch, we all settled at my Mum’s for love, garden times, cocktails, food and sunbathing, I don’t think the babies have been this happy in AGES, neither have I and i’m a pretty happy human. There was a moment today when i watched my Mum and dad just ‘be’ under a giant pink garden parasol, with generations of Wunna’s around them that they created. They looked so in love..and it made me smile, as it gave me hope. my parents have been together forever and every day I am grateful for them, their love, their support and the fact that I have the most beautiful family and children. It doesn’t really matter when you find your ‘Prince’ as long as in the end you do and i only say that because i’m not a girl who wants to be sixty years old, with no life companion..who’s seen me through the best times, the tough times and looks at me like i’m his world, his rock, his baby. 🙂
Sunbathing was amazing!
The downside to living in the UK is that you don’t get that constant LA sunshine 24/7. I mean, I never took that sunshine for granted when I lived there…but i’m the palest i’ve ever been, and STILL more tanned than most around these parts! Lol.
I love living in Yorkshire, even though i moan about it sometimes. In fact i’m a chick that would make the most of anywhere that I chose to live. But i did think that I was maybe residing on the wrong continent earlier…as when the boys in Ponte go for a casual beer…they don’t look like this..
…just regular guys in LA, en route for a drink in the sun. It is LITERALLY LIKE THAT everywhere in LA! Hotness always!
But then i got over the ‘suns out, guns out’ brigade and whipped off my top to enrich my garden tan. I love being Yorkshire…and the weird thing is, that the boys in LA ADORE a ‘Yorkshire’ gal. I guess, you always desire something different as it seems so much more exotic? I’m a lot more popular with the boys in Hollywood than I am over here in England…and i kinda feel popular with the boys here. 🙂 Just sayin’ lol (Shut up…i do!)
The whole weekend has been amazing. I’ve kinda just kept myself to myself, and my family…aside from yesterday when I met up with Tony…a really great and good guy friend of mine who i adore. I love Tony, because he’s one of these really good guys, who isn’t ‘beige’ nor is he dull..he’s fun and vibrant…in the same way as I am, as he’s not weird, or edgy, or too much. He’s just fun. He enjoys the finer things in life…and well we both enjoy the same sorts of things. To be honest, before i dated Ben, when we were all friends, I actually got along better with Tony than I did Ben. 🙂 And everyone knew that. Hahaha.
He’s a great guy…such a good balance of fun and normal aceness.
Anyway, the other good thing that we as friends have in common, is that fact that we are BOTH PARENTS. I like that! People who aren’t actual parents aren’t exactly the same… as people who are real parents. Don’t get me wrong, there are great step parents…lots of great step parents. But you completely understand the lifestyle change, if you’re a proper parent, right? Do you get it?
Bottom line, great to see him, great to hang out with him, like we used to…great to chat to him about out shit love lives…and most of all, great to have a sit down and be able to do as OUR LITTLE GIRLS, played in luxury cloth play homes and sand pits and made us pretend food, whilst munching on cookies and sausage rolls. I bought them ‘tea parties in a tin’ and Tony planted pumpkin seeds with them, with Dave the Minion.
That’s what’s good about Tony…AND the fact that when we’re out..we both know how to be the MOST FUN ever! 🙂 I enjoy him! Lots! Yet the only rubbish thing about him is that we’re in the same circle of ‘Ben’s’ friends…which puts ‘awkward’ on it all…until we discussed it all, laughed and went with ‘fuck it.’
I mean, GOD, life is so short…people can do whatever they want, when they want…I’m single.. It’s great!
But yes, as our little girls played and we treated them…we chatted about everything…like we do. He’s also like a guy best friend…but he’s good because he’s not in ‘friend zone’ at all because he has this ‘spunk’ to him. He chatted about our love lives. He was on a date that night. WE laughed about our singledom..and just had a really good time. He ha this great way of putting me on a pedastal (like boys do)…without deliberately putting me on a pedastal…as he’s not mushy with me at all. It’s all friendly, yet NOT boring boy banter. He doesn’t even hit on me, or come at me like that…just does this thing where i know i’m attracted and I know he thinks i am…lol…YET, if he did, the advantage that he has over other boys, is the fact that he knows… me pretty well already….Like it’s just a text, ‘let’s hang out’ and because he’s already close friend, it’s a ‘Yeah sure, when?’ And he’s in….But he doesn’t come at me like that…
(Ewww…Junior’s just handed me a fresh bogie.)
Anyway, our Mother’s made an entrance, his by text, my via real life show ups..and like us, our little girls went home happy.
It was great!
I’m gonna do drinks with Tony. He’s uplifting. He’s great fun and actually by accident gave me great advice…we see things the same way.
I’ve had some really great times with Tony…he’s awesome. It’s been awful to feel like we couldn’t hang out because of the ‘Ben thing,’ but i’m glad we’ve gone with ‘fuck it.’ It means we’re grown ups! 🙂
Life is good!
