I love spending time with Spud, but having some time apart today has enabled me to catch up on a few things that have been rather neglected recently. After a spot of lunch with Treasure, I treated myself to an activity I haven't had time for in a long while. I did some baking and made Chocolate Almond Biscotti. After that, I finally got round to planting my strawberry seeds. I bought the kit ages ago because I absolutely adore strawberries and fancied growing my own strawberry plant (although judging from my track record with pot plants, this one doesn't stand much of a chance). Then I got down to doing some practical jobs, including filing some paperwork, and doing some tidying. I can't stand my room being messy!
Today has made me realise that all couples need some space: some time to pursue their own interests, or simply to catch up as I have this afternoon. Some of my colleagues from my last job were happy to be apart from their partners for several days at a time (which is probably why they lasted longer than I did in the job). Spud and I aren't like that, but we still need a bit of time apart as this is healthy. Having got on with the tasks that were previously hanging over me, I am now refreshed, and looking forward to seeing Spud tomorrow!
