the man i love

(man, two girls, poodle,and a book in a bunk)

is the kind of man who...



tells his 9 year old he is proud of her for no special reason



bikes 90 kms for fun



makes me a good cup of tea every morning



has been an international sportsman



runs a business



comes overseas mostly because i want to go there



loves being at home



loves movies about war


loves his mother and looks forward to talking to her on the phone


likes my legs


likes a bargain


likes planting things


has a beehive


likes to choose clothes for his 7 year old daughter - and does it with panache


talks lovingly to the poodle


changed nappies without flinching


supports me to create - even if he doesn't particularly like what i am making he likes that i am happy

delights in a job that he can wear shorts and tshirts to work for


can draw and sing but rarely does them


doesn't like the pegs on the clothesline to be alone so he moves them together so they are not lonely


is honest and loyal and strong and


loves me

  3. thankyou ladies - i prefer to think luck had nothing to do with it though... i am blessed that we met, and blessed that he stayed with me through the tough times... but that was work there too and not so much luck

  4. It takes a brave man to admit to caring about clothes pegs LOL
    Seriously - he's very special; he must be to have found you.
    I feel much admiration for you both for working through the tough times together.
    I love him for how he fathers his girls.

  6. I just love this, darling! In my experience (observation?), it's become almost uncool to talk about one's spouse in glowing terms. I'm so happy to see you burst that bubble, darl. [Whispering: I have something half written about Mr Mouse] You're right, there's a lot of hard work... but I do believe in luck or fate or whatever too. "Tough times" are part of every journey. It's my hope that most couples starting out together know this. But sometimes I'm not too sure!
