It started off really, really sucky, but the day really turned around and I ended up really enjoying myself. This morning at 4.30am we waved goodbye to The Boyfriend as he went off through the international departures gate. Destination; Rome. Eventually… London. For two years. Two years.
That’s literally the other side of the planet. 12 hour time difference. Northern hemisphere to my southern hemisphere.
And it sucks.
But all is not lost, and wallowing does not help! So, I have 3 awesome, positive things to focus on instead;
- I don’t have a lot of friends, but the friends I do have are amazing, loving, totally-there-for-me people. Quality over quantity, people! I love them dearly.
- Phone calls with my mum, over a glass of wine, on a cold rainy evening. Comforting and good for the soul.
- Dyeing yarn makes me smile. Tonight I dyed some yarn in greens and browns for a handsome young man’s woollen sweater (and cast on for his little brother’s cardigan while the yarn dries!).
(For those wondering what happened to Day 6, I briefly mentioned in my last post that I wouldn’t be posting. It was my last day with The Boyfriend, so he got all my attention. You know, priorities)
