- Wedding: December 2013
Bees, a funny thing happened this morning.
SO and I live separately at the moment – I moved out when we broke up at the beginning of this year, and even though the breakup didn’t last, we had a long way to come back and a lot of work to do. So, we agreed that I wouldn’t move back in until we get engaged, which we are planning to do mid-late 2013. However, I live with a flatmate, and SO lives alone in the apartment we used to share, and I spend more than half my time there. I’m quite happy with the arragnement, save for the odd complaint about not having the right shoes or being able to find my whatever. I describe it to people who ask as “we live in *suburb* and I live in town”.
This morning I complained about not having a clean black sweater in our place and argh it’s so inconvenient – but jokingly. I do this a lot.
Then I got to work and my flatmate texted and said “So I wa gonna do this over a bottle of wine, but I never see you…Are you planning to move out soon? NOt that I want you to but I don’t want you to feel like you have to stay” and so on. I texted SO to giggle about the timing and he responded by asking me whether I wanted to move back in and saying we should talk about it. Thing is I *like* the way things are at the moment, and I don’t think he particularly wants to rush back into living together either, but I think we’re both really worried about offending each other by saying “no, not yet”!
Ah, manners. Silly silly manners.
