Simon arrived late on the train. Because of the flooding up north it was running almost an hour late. So I got there to meet him just as he texted it was going to be late. Oh well, sat in a pub across the road and had a couple of beers whilst waiting. Hadn't had anything to drink all weekend so happy to have a couple then. I've been doing that quite a bit lately; not drinking for a day or two. Probably a big reason for the few kilos I've lost. I'm really liking it. Drinking can sort of creep up on you if you're not careful, and suddenly you find yourself having way too much nearly every day. I'm feeling much healthier and less tired. Think I'll extend it a few more days and see how I go. Sort of got caught up in the whole pub thing. It's a laugh for a while but it can get very boring and tedious when arguments are happening.
So anyway Simon came and met me at the pub across the road from Central Station. He only packed one bag, he's very good at knowing what he'll need for a 2 week stay. We sat upstairs outside on the balcony and chatted a bit. He may come with me to court on Thursday to see what happens (that's the court date for the Apprehended Violence Order application). Didn't stay long, and got a bus outside almost straight away to get home.
Slept the night holding each other. It was quite late by then and both just wanted to sleep. Had to put the air conditioner on as it was the hottest night so far this summer. A day off for me today so we had the place to ourselves after daughter left for work. It's been a long time since we had sex, but it's still as intense as it's always been with us. Sort of takes us to another place... There's just something that happens between us that makes it way more than just a fuck. I'm glad that even though we did fall out, we were both mature enough to give each other space and not blame each other for our differences.
We still have that rare thing that happens sometimes during love making, that connection to each other that we feel. Sex is still a vehicle for expressing those feelings. We still get lost in each other, with the world around losing significance.
