I usually spend most of Saturday with DP, and I love it because he usually has loads to do and doesn't stop for the night until about ten, so we end up staying up late just to spend time together.

Today he spent the day with his son (who pops in and out all weekend, he doesn't not spend time with him normally, but they don't usually go out all day. Anyway, they went on some sort of adventure trail with other lads and dads, had a great time etc etc. Anyway, I was looking forward to him coming back, they were an hour later than they'd said, and when he got back and I went over to his house, my brother was ensconsed on the couch showing no signs of moving, and DP's son was still there, also welded to the couch.

I sat down for a bit, asked quietly what the plans were, and DP was a bit non-commital, "stuff to do here" etc. I kind of muttered what was the point of me going over if I wasn't going to see him properly and that I may as well go back home and see him when he was ready. I sort of grumbled out of the house (my bro and dss were busy nattering and didn't hear anything) and stalked off. I'm sitting on my own at home watching Breakfast At Tiffany's and kind of hoping he'll ring or come over but I'm nearly at the end of the movie and he hasn't chased me to say how deeply wrong he was not to give me his undivided attention...I am BU aren't I? But I just wanted to see him without everyone else and I've missed him all day and I think I have PMT and want to cry pathetically. My kids are off at the ex's and I'm on my own and feeling crap. Unless I can snap out of this then Saturday Night Kid-Free Madness together is going to start a bit frostily...

Come and slap me then, I can take it! What am supposed to do now? Wait it out and pretend I'm not bothered? Or ring and be cheery or what? I'm not normally given to sulking...

Aw! Ring him.I couldn't believe this was your op - I didn't think you did sulking!

win, chocolate, finish breakfast at tiffany's then ring and be cheery.

have more wine, then wild sex.

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:20:49

I know, I know, I'm being a spoilt child today, waaaaargh! I just wanted him to myself sad

I think I do feel PMTish though.

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 18:21:43

I like the wine and chocolate idea!

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:23:21

Is it too early for wine? I could open a bottle and have a little snifter I suppose...and there is a lonely Rocky bar in the fridge...it might just work?

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 18:23:55

No kids = time for wine.

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:26:05

OMG, Audrey Hepburn has just described herself as "fat as a pig"...there is no hope is there? < sob >

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:27:21

have wine, and chocolate, then send a saucy text a bit later...(make like the grumpy departure never happened)

Kimi Sat 27-Jun-09 18:28:02

Give me wine, chocolate and a good film over a man any day grin

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:28:38

audrey has a lot to answer for, imo.

but she is sooooo beeeooootiful..

<<sigh at loss of any gamine style minxing opps>>

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:31:59

Right, just went into the kitchen for wine, and the dog has had diarrhoea all over the bloody floor I mopped this morning to pass some time in my miserable manless day - waaaaaaaaiiiiiilllll !

I am SO having wine after clearing this up...

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:33:39

oh, that is so unfair....

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 18:33:47

Oh no! Things can only get better now!

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:35:06

If it is any consolation, I may well have to give up going to a party tonight, and its only the second one I have been invited to this year....rain means I can't get ds to his dads and it is not stopping.

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:38:06

Oh bugger! How disappointing! Why can't you get through the rain?

Have wine in hand now smile

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 18:38:27

Oh no Madame! Can't his dad come and get him?

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:40:13

because it takes nearly an hour to get there, and half of that is walking. Normally a doddle, but I can't frog march him through hail and rain for half an hour....and it is his birthday weekend!

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:41:04

dad coming to get him would result in the same bus/walking combo. neither of us drive! (to be fair, we don't need to, living in London)

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 18:41:30

Oh no! I think you should join BOF in a wine fest.

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:41:30

Taxi? Just this once?

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:42:44

and also, I would look like crap turning up at the party after that marathon, and the next leg of it which also involves buses and walking!

BitOfFun Sat 27-Jun-09 18:43:20

Audrey looks very fetching all rain-sodden now...maybe you could work that look?

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:44:46

God I would love to do a taxi, but just bought ds his birthday present of an eye-wateringly expensive nintendo dsi and have to pay for bowling lane party tomorrow, so £20 on a taxi is not doable...grrhhh.

MadameDefarge Sat 27-Jun-09 18:45:32

alack, alas, about twenty years too old for the rain-sodden ingenue look....
