Niamh..I had a really stressful day at work yesterday. I am a new teacher and if I classes go badly- I don't dwell on them in the day, but once night or early morning comes I lie awake going over them again and again in my mind..Jim knew I had a bad night, he got up when the girls did, brought me the most lush cappuccino in bed, found my old Delia book and made loads of pancake batter for me and the girls- mine were brought to me in bed... followed by would you believe it.. Eton Mess (with blueberries,strawberries and raspberries yum!).He then told me to stay upstairs as long as I wanted and from the noises downstairs (and the happy sound of Glastonbury blaring!) he is doing a load of clearing up downstairs. I am consequently lying in contented decadence and have the time to write this blog in bed. The self critical thoughts of the night now seem a world away. Thank you Jim!
Tip for making your partner feel REALLY special- ..in the early years of marriage Jim did kind things often but breakfast in bed (though still lovely) would have been a full English..because he would have brought me what he would have liked himself and also have been able to have some too. Jim this morning made pancakes which he hates! but has realised I would much prefer- Eton Mess he doesn't like either!-he ended up with a bowl of start I think! He really thought about what I would like...and that means even more to me..
