Let me introduce you to my friend Floor.
“Miss Bedroom Floor” to give her full title.
Mummy misses Miss Floor. 😭
We have a complicated relationship.
We often go for months without seeing each other.
We can spend weeks apart, not talking, not asking how the other is doing, seemingly not caring aboit each other.
When Floor and Mummy fall out, it’s usually over clothes and shoes.
We have the same taste see.🤐
Floor also has a lot to deal with.
Mummy neglects her.
Since the kids came along, Mummy just doesn’t have the same time to spend with her. You could say she has been abandoned, dropped on, forgotten by Mummy.
I walk all over her really.
There is a layer of cobweb on our relationship, and it’s horrible.😭😭😭
And of course, there are the OTHER Floors… Floor MUST be jealous as Mummy keeps the other floors generally tidy.
SOMETIMES, (believe or or not), Mummy even MOPS the Other Floors.
So I really can’t blame Floor for hiding from Mummy and ignoring me sometimes.
But like any TRUE FRIENDSHIP, when distance grows between us, we both feel sad.
Mummy misses Floor terribly.
When she is sad and isolated and upset, and the distance between us is great, Mummy could cry.
It’s all such a MESS. I feel like the whole house is falling down around me. I can’t get over her. I can’t get past missing her. I feel like my head is going to fucking EXPLODE.
This morning, my broken and disintegrating relationship with my friend Floor, became too much for me to deal with.
At approximately 7.45am, Mummy freaked out on The Him. 👤
I couldn’t DEAL with the absence of Floor any longer.
“I can’t deal with this situation any more. It’s driving me insane. I just can’t get the time need to find Floor!” were just a few of the things I ranted and rambled while trying to find the trousers Floor had hidden from me.
I went to work, promising myself that this evening, I WOULD make time for my Friend Floor. I WOULD fix this mess. I WOULD make her remember that she is loved and valued.
As I collected Princess from The Him after work, I was still determined to make amends with Floor.
As HIM drove off, he called “Try to get that Floor sorted this evening will you?”
He was waved off with less than 5 fingers and many obscenities, expletives and petnames muttered after him.
He will pay for that.
And then we came home and I opened the bedroom door to find THIS…
I. Shit. You. Not.
I almost FELL on the floor in shock (and joy!)
I think I fell a little bit in lurve with Him all over again too.💙💙💙💙
Joking aside, I can’t find the words to express how much this simple, unexpected action meant to me today. It isn’t even the tidying that has floored me…(boom)… it’s the fact that he noticed how much it was stressing me out.
In a house where I sometimes feel like no one even HEARS ME most of the time, just to have something be noticed is amazing.
Tonight? If he bought flowers, diamonds, chocolates… none of that could compete with the utter joy of seeing Floor again.
The Him gets a tough time on here, so I must give credit where it’s due.
He is my Superhero.
AND I’m NOT even going to REARRANGE the rearranged wardrobes!
(I’ll do that tomorrow!) 😂😘😘😘
