Thursday Mornings...


Although it is rather strange not having little Doris toddling about the place all the time, it does have its compensations. She adores going to nursery, and is less than impressed on days when she can't go there. So on Thursday mornings, Mrs Hideous and I drop the kids off at school and nursery and go out for coffee. It's become a regular highlight of the week since we began it at the beginning of the term. Having run the marriage course several times, we finally seem to be getting the lesson from session one 'book regular time on your own together' into order.

OK so this week after an very enjoyable coffee at Cafe Breazh, the trip did descend to shopping, where the normal arrangements took over. Mrs Hideous looked at the things for sale in the shop, while I looked out of the window. This is the view from the upstairs window of a town-centre shop.

I spotted you and the weans the other morning as you headed schoolward.

Him Indoors and I used to wake up on a Monday and say "Hurray, it's Monday". Very counter-cultural obviously. But it was because that is his day off and with four kids safely back to school after the weekend we went every week to Gloagburn for breakfast. It was great. Now full time work for me has got in the road, I really really miss it.

Our marriage time (when it happens) has tended to revovle around early Saturday morning - while Dolly D is hibernating in a teenage way. It sounds haunting like your Thursday - trip into town, cup of coffee (usually at Cafe Nero, then occasionally shopping - although I prefer the walk on the Inch or along the river options.

Up until a few weeks ago, it was easy to spend time with each other - nice lunches, walks in the hills with doglet....

Not so sure how to make it work now, though!
