Best to say it...

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.

  1. I think there's a phenomenal amount of truth contained in conversations between partners just before sleep. This was lovely.

  7. Forget the stiff upper lip man, he'd probably ship you off somewhere nasty or hire someone else to take care of you.

    True love comes from care.

  8. When we visited, it was plain to us how much love there was between you, and you are right to voice these feelings out loud to each other and not just assume they don't need to be said. No council home for you just yet lady....and email me if you need a lift somewhere desperately as my sister has said that they will always help if they can x

  11. There is a special place in Heaven for those who care for others when the others are, if even temporarily, not as capable as they once were. Bless him!

  13. Usually I send you hugs, but this time I'm sending a load to him, too.

    P.S. My word verification is "objour yndingl". That's how French people who live in Wales say "penis of the day". 8-)
