Hiding things from my husband

I have been a bad wife. I have been hiding things from my husband. It’s not what you think though… I haven’t been hitting the shops and spending a fortune on retail therapy. I haven’t had an affair. But yesterday, the truth came out. Yesterday, Andy found out my secret.

Yesterday, I uploaded my birthday wish list post and Andy asked me what that ‘pink blob’ was. I told him that it was the Lush Snow Fairy shower gel that he had bought me for Christmas last year. I had instantly fallen in lust with it and popped it in the shower ready to use.

I quickly realised that Andy was using it too so, not wanting it to get used up quickly, I hid it behind the shower curtain.

Noticing that he found it there, I moved it again, slightly further away this time. It was still going down and the scent lingered in the bathroom every morning! He kept finding it.

Normally, I wouldn’t mind sharing my things but this was limited edition and I didn’t manage to get any from more from Lush before they ran out. Not knowing if I would ever get anymore, I hid it again. But yesterday we had our first ‘serious’ talk about it đŸ˜‰

Andy: ‘I thought it kept going missing’.

Beth: ‘Beth doesn’t share Snow Fairy!’ *In the tone of ‘Joey doesn’t share food’*

Andy: ‘You’re a pest!’

We then had a playful fight where I justified how I was a good wife because I had bought him some thin cracker crisps that he really liked. I’m not sure if all is forgiven so watch this space…

Ok, so that’s probably not how you expected this post to go. I would say I’m sorry for tricking you but if I’m honest… I’m not. It was a bit of a funny moment when the truth came out yesterday and I just wanted to share it with you. I hope you don’t mind. If you do then I’ll leave you with a parting image… (click on that link!) Bx

I think I’m back! I think…
I’ve been suffering from a weird case of writer’s block recently that hasn’t just affected my writing, it has also affected my photo editing. Bang on six months, I took Heath’s pictures for the usual updates and BOOM! that was it. Nothing! No editing, no writing, nada. I tried to edit the pics last week and did a half ar*$d job. Thinking that I’d rather wait until I was in a better blogging mood than put up a mediocre post up, it has just sat on my computer waiting for me to click ‘Publish’. All week and a month late (he’s seven months already!).
Now, at 23.41 on a Friday evening, after going to bed at 19.30 (I’m so rock and roll!), I think I’m back and ready to blog.
I think I’ve been feeling a bit strange recently as I feel in a bit of a limbo. I’ve been sad as Heath, on the one hand seems to be developing at a rapid rate. He’s just this week learned how to ‘crawl’ in a straight line. There’s no more rolling to a destination, oh no. If he wants to be somewhere, he’s straight there, there usually being somewhere he shouldn’t be e.g. raiding the DVDs, or with his head in the nappy box or trying to take the knob off the surround sound. And then, on the flip side, he’s regressed in a lot of ways. He’s waking frequently for night feeds and had bad nappies so he’s constantly on the changing mat (I think he’s teething). It’s a bit of an emotional roller coaster, especially with all the sleep deprivation.

Anyway, long story short, I feel like I’m back and hope to get back into my flow by doing a bit more blogging. I won’t promise to publish several posts this week but that is my intention.
Thanks for sticking with me. See you soon. Bx
