In other news….
I think I am going to catch up with my ex-boyfriend tomorrow. He is a very old friend… someone who I grew up with and was best buddies with both him and his sister for a long time before we hooked up, and for a while after we split up. We sort of drifted apart as we grew up and moved away and married different people (well his sister and I did, he is still single) but our parents are still close and still live around the corner from each other just like when we were kids. I see his parents a bit when I am at my parent’s place so we both know all about what the other is up to but it has been YEARS since we have seen each other….
He now owns and runs a play centre near my parents place and we always mean to take the girls but it never happens… and secretly I have been glad of that. But he rang this afternoon asking if my Mum would help him with something and before I could make an excuse she had said we’d bring the girls over in the morning!!!!
It’s not at all that I don’t still want to be friends with him, in fact I really like to pick up our old friendship it’s just that…. well…. I had this idea that when we finally caught up again I’d atleast be having a good hair day! And I haven’t had a good hair day in months, I need a hair cut so bad and there are a few grey hairs that I’d rather not share with him and little change of any of that miraculously being resolved over night. Plus I didn’t even bring any semi decent clothes with me, and my favorite shoes broke so I will have to wear my Mum’s daggy shoes… I don’t want my ex boyfriend thinking I wear grandma shoes!!!!!!!
Oh gosh how vain does all of that sound? But I can’t help it. As much as I love him to bits and as much as I am supremely happy with my life, my children and my husband… I guess part of me wants my ex to look at me and just for a moment… just a split second… be a tiny bit disappointed that he let me go.
Ah but I guess I will just have to settle for a smile and a chat and try to talk myself into believing that I can see my ex boyfriend for the first time in almost 5 years, even with bad hair!
