Recently I came across a blog where the person found it offensive to be called
I freely admit that I am a high maintenance sort of woman. And why not? There is nothing wrong with that, if you ask me.
When you google high maintenance it will show you the following:
A high maintenance person will require a lot of attention, time, money and/or effort!
Of course a person like me requires a lot attention. The key here is the right kind of attention in a specific time frame. If I call you, and you must be special in order for me to do so, pick up- after the first ring, please! When I am about to meet you, do yourself a favour, hang on to your life and be on time!!! When I want to go for a run, do join me, it will be fun- at least for me and that is the most important thing, right?!
And yes, I do invest in my body first. I like to look nice! And you like it when I do, right?
I shave, plug, trim, exfoliate and pamper myself with the best tools and ingredients on the market. Why? Because I can! Because I want to!
And if you want to brighten my day, show up with a single flower (I prefer sunflowers), a bottle of whiskey and polished shoes. Thank you very much and yes, that is necessary!
You might not be able to give what I desire? “Heck, where there’s a way, there’s a will”, she says, pouting.
You want to stay in my life long-term? Darling the answer is as easy as breathing:
All I want for you is to reach for the brightest star on a clear night and serve it to me on a silver plate! I won’t settle for less! And once I got that star, there is no stopping me- I always aim for more. Of course I do!
What you get in return?!?
The best wicked person I can possibly be! Friend or foe- you will love me!
I have to announce something.
I have to give some big credit to my husband for still loving me!
A while ago we had a big talk about what is going not so well in our relationship and what made me so unhappy.
All relationships, especially long term relationships have their ups and downs and with a bit of luck couples will make it through- together.
I told and asked my husband to be a bit more open minded when it comes to other guys and said that I wouldn’t have a problem if he would kiss another woman.
Now my husband does not want to share me! Of course not! I am awesome! I am a great catch and unique in all my little odd ways!
After such revelation, many a man would probably have showed me the door, thinking that I don’t love him. But love has nothing to do with the idea to maybe kiss another man/woman, it is the fun side that comes with it….
However. Like I said, my husband said “no” and I am sticking to it.
My point is:
Though I know that it is very easy to fall in love with me, it is also very hard to keep loving me because of the way I am, the way I (re-)act, the (sometimes hurtful) things I say and because of my selfishness!
But the man I have keeps on loving me despite all the above!
So, here I raise a glass to you:
I love you too!
I have a confession to make:
I must say, I find it really sexy to see (straight) men in women’s clothes!!!
Every now and again the show “Lip Sync Battle” pops up on my Facebook and of course you would see men perform songs of females, often dressed in accordance.
Most recently I have seen Tom Holland singing Rihanna and couldn’t stop grinning! And John Krasinski singing “Proud Mary”? Sexy as hell. And that despite the fact that both are not even my type! Sorry, Tom and John, I know you won’t mind! Tay Diggs performing Madonna? Oh, oh, oh….
Whenever I see such performances I just can’t help it! I am whooping and can’t manage to get that goofy grin of my face!
I think it is the fact that they don’t take themselves too serious and that they even seem to have fun, doing what they are doing.
The other day I have seen a 50 something gentleman in Tescos, rocking high heels and black leather mini, no make up. He looked good and the best thing: Nobody even batted an eyelash!
I wonder does that make me a geek? Because I like everything that is not conventional? Because I love extremes?
Who knows? Who cares?
Recently I had a very serious talk with my husband about our relationship.
Now I have to inform you, my husband can be very jealous and therefor controlling. And when he asked me, if I have cheated on him, my answer was “no”. Because I don’t lie and wouldn’t do something like that behind his back! So he asked, if I wanted? I replied “only if you give me permission”. He didn’t like this one bit! He doesn’t want to share! He nearly had a heart attack and nervous breakdown. He hates it when I am flirting! But flirting to me, is like breathing. It comes natural and I do it without thinking. I might flirt with young, old, women, men. And there is nothing to it. Nothing sexual. It is just the fun bit, you know, where you have a fun, nice, easy going exchange of words which makes you smile and giggle. That’s all!
I always been like this and you need to have a really thick skin to be with me, I have to admit.
The thing with temptation is this, whoever you go, it is always in reach!
Am I tempted to cheat? Am I (actively) looking for it? And what does it contain? Where does cheating start in your point of view?
As for me, I am very relaxed about this topic. Would I mind if my husband would kiss or even have sex with someone else? Honestly? No, as long as he comes back home to me!
Temptation can be anything from a look, a word, an innocent touch.
It is about how far you go!
Everyone can be tempted, but everyone also got the will to stop!
Over the past two years I put on weight. It was gradually. Either I didn’t realise it or I didn’t care to realise. Either way, my point is, my husband did not tell me! Which really annoys me!
And no beloved male readers, there is no catch! I for one, want to get told, when I put on weight! And no, I will not throw a fit or cry all day long about how mean you are!
I mean, you fall in love with someone. Because of their looks and of course because of the intellect! So when one of the couple gradually puts on weight, it is not what you fell in love with and no they don’t love the excess weight! Not the one who gains it nor the one who has to live with said person.
Or did you ever hear someone say:
“Oooooh I love your cute love-handles and I especially love how they jiggle when you move…. and your bat arms, how huge they are….. or oh I just love how the fat really pushes out your cellulite, I hope you will put even more on…. or I could kiss that double chin of yours all day long….or it looks so hot when your ass tries to eat your shorts….
Not ever did I hear someone say something like that! Ever!
Of course you are still loved when you put on weight, but they love you as a person but they don’t love the extra weight! And no this is not fat shaming! This is pointing out the obvious!
So please men, do yourself a favour, when your partner puts on weight, say, or if you fear for your life, at least do something about it!
But if you are truly happy for your partner to get bigger and your partner is the same, than of course just dismiss the above!
As for me and my fat, I am on the way to recovery and back to my former self by eating healthy and exercise and sleep more!
When my husband lay in bed all horny this morning, I had to dampen his mood by telling him that the Red Sea was currently residing in south under!
He then asks me “…. shouldn’t you get this pause….. this menopause anytime soon?!”
“Excuse me? I AM 40 YEARS OLD!!!….” I am still a spring chicken!
Ladies and gentlemen, I am 40!!! No, Sir! The menopause won’t knock on my door any time soon, or so I believe.
Men, just unbelievable!
Do you ever think of me when you cross the street, the rain pouring down on you
Trying to wash away all your guilt?
Do you ever think of me when you feel so low that you want to hang your head
Hang your head because you realise you lost all hope?
Do you ever think of me when all of a sudden a gust of wind carries a sweet scent to you which reminds you of old times
Do you ever think of me when you rush from one corner of the world to the other though all you really want to do is just stand still?
Do you ever think of me while searching for the right words though they are right at the tip of your tounge?
Do you ever think of me in the middle of the night
I think you do
All the time
Screw Day and Night Nurse, doesn’t matter wether it is the liquid form or tablets, my new remedy when it comes to the first symptoms of a cold or flu is a good old Hot Toddy!
Recently I was googling remedies when I woke up with a scratchy throat, stinging eyes and slightly blocked nose, not to mention the throbbing head.
And I knew what is to come. Every, yes every single time when it starts like that, I know I will suffer from a very bad sinus infection which lasts me weeks and sometimes even ends with antibiotics as it gets so bad, all I want is to bang my head against the wall before someone who is compassionate enough comes round to shoot me! Yes, THAT bad!
So when those little nasty bactarials started to nest inside me, I thought
No, not again! I can’t afford to fall sick when I just started a new job. I need this job, I need the money.
So I came across the Hot Toddy recipe:
- Hot water
- Freshly pressed lemon juice
- Honey (Since I am a vegan, I use Mable syrup to sweeten up)
- And the best: WHISKY
I am a big fan of whisky….. oh I sound like a drunk, but no, ladies and gentlemen, I can count the drinks I have per year on one hand!
So I brewed my concoction and it was oh so tasty! And the next day I already felt a bit better. I had two more drinks over the next two days and viola, I was as good as new!
Yesterday my husband was still in his bathrobe when I got back from work, feeling sick, so I suggested to brew him one as well.
When it comes to food or drinks he doesn’t like he is like a cat you try to bath. Really hard work but in the end he gulped it down (he doesn’t like whisky at all) and had one more later in the evening and again, he felt much better today!
Hot Toddy, you are my new best medicine friend.
What better excuse to have whisky?!
Ok, so whooooo of you didn’t keep me posted?!
A few times now it happened that I was introduced to or that someone was talking about their partner.
Partner? I thought.
When I hear someone talking about their other half and is regarding to him/her as partner, I wonder if that person is
a) the same sex or if
b) they are talking about a business partner?
Do the 30 something do that now, referring to our beloved one as partner? And if so, how come I missed this?
Is it outdated to introduce your partner (I still didn’t get over it) as your boy/girlfriend?
Or is introducing your partner as boy/girlfriend seen as immature? Is this an adult thing?
I mean, I have a husband so I introduce him as husband (I don’t think there is another term for it, or is there?!).
But still, it bothers me.
Guess I keep on wondering.
