Almost ready to drop off into that mysterious place where I sleep with the help of zopi something or other; a thought entered my head and needed voicing.
'Where would I be if I didn't have you?'
At first I thought he had already fallen asleep or was doing the old trick of ignoring me.
'Well, we wouldn't be here for a start.'
'I don't mean had I not met you in the fifties, ensnared you, married you and had kids. And of course that would be all different.' I day dream a petite moment on how I might have hooked up with a calm stiff upper lip type...
I'm talking about what you have done, what you do for me, how you don't stop working and carry out all or most [the house is not the cleanest it's ever been] of the daily chores.Without you I would be lost, or tucked away in some Council Nursing Home.'
'Not as long as I'm breathing, cherie. Go to sleep'
I love it when he is masterful.
