Woke up to Brenton gnawing me. peeked out the window and… blue sky! BLUE SKY! A perfect sunny day, just in time for our scheduled picnic 😀
Came home and tidied up the house and it was lovelie to be un-hung-over at 8am on a Saturday. Then Brenton came to pick me up (an hour late) and was all rushy, which I grumbled at him at once I realised how tense and edge I was, snarling at the traffic in my mind. It wore off once we picked up Josh and stopped for a bottle of wine.
Met Seb and Chrissy at the Roma Street Parklands. Chelle texted me saying she’d driven down and tried to find us, but quickly became irate at all the families and children and left in a rage. Poop.
The rest of us lay in the sunshadiness eating cheese and talking crap for a few hours. It was very picturesque and delight. We went for a wander through the gardens afterwards and I pilfered cuttings from all the purple plants.
Afterwards, dinner at Brenton’s parents. A lot of the night they spent talking about people I don’t know, and events that don’t involve me, so I sat staring dully. Afterwards Brenton said he thought his mother was expecting an apology for my not going to dinner last time, which I hadn’t remembered to give. I think he got offended because he thought I didn’t think it was important. I mean, if she was that upset, of course it’s important… I just really hadn’t even thought about it. butttt if I’m totally honest I guess I don’t really understand how she could be that upset about it.
So, hooray. Parents alienated.
