I received a text 2 hours ago now saying that "he was just finishing his pint." It must be an awfully big pint if he is still drinking it. I'm so tired but I've still made him chicken casserole from scratch (which he knows) and it's sitting going cold. I've been in the house all day with only the cat to talk to, and the only real human contact being my doctor phoning to tell me I am anaemic. I'm pregnant, tired and headachey and do not need him to roll in at 3 in the morning, blind drunk telling me he is "sooooo shorry and I'll never evereverever do it again. Promish." I don't think I would mind as much as long as he didn't keep telling me that he is about to set off, or just finishing this last drink. If he said: "I'm having drinks after work and I have no clue when I'll be in or what state I'll be in, so don't make any sort of plans for the evening involving me," I would be in less of a foul mood, I think. In a few months he just won't have the time to stay out and get pissed whenever he pleases, so should I just let him enjoy it while it lasts?
My friends all live miles away and are poor poor students so can't come visit often. I also have to stay up because he lost his keys and last time I went to bed he was locked out for a few hours. He he. You are, of course, right. It isn't his fault I've been in all day. He does do this quite often (at least 3 times a week) as he works in a pub so he tends to start when he finishes work and then carry on from there. I would join him usually, but I also work in a pub and spend most days sitting around sober, watching other people get drunk and make idiots of themselves, so I'd rather stab my feet with forks than do it in my free time. I wish I could have a G&T. He just told me he was setting off about 20 minutes ago. I don't believe him.
