Well it’s Saturday night. I had a really good day. I went to Mount Martha to see a friend’s new house and had a lovely brunch with two girlfriends and a mentor – which meant champagne at about 11am. In short, a weekend just doesn’t start better than that.
I came home and breathed a tiny sigh of relief that I had some ‘me’ time. The Squeeze had gone to pick up kid 3 and had text me to say they were doing a movie – which meant in true ‘Risky Business’ style (minus Tom Cruise's white underies); I had the house to myself…
I did a little cleaning; poured a glass of red. Did a little washing; poured a glass of red. By the time the Squeeze and his ‘mini me’ got home; I was knee deep in home-made jam donuts (did I say we were on diets…?) and half shot.
Okay. I’m going out on a limb here to say that although I made them about 3 hours ago – I’m yet to even touch one (not that I won’t because they look fantastic); but as I finished them and kid 3 had retired to the TV (now there is a change) without dinner (he didn’t like my risotto) – the Squeeze had replied to my sarcastic question of ‘get the divorce..?’
Well, she managed to have the talk they had to have. Kid 2 got $1000 worth of fines on one night. Ummm yeah. Does she even know about the rest of them..? And at the end of the day – big deal. What the hell does she want him to do about it? Pay them? Not one for teaching them a little bit of responsibility… You know – consequences for the decisions we make… Then it was other mindless crap that has nothing to do with a divorce. And I'm still trying to work out why the hell this stopped the divorce papers getting signed...
However – she has no problem signing the papers (wtf? – and the last 3 freaking months were about…? Of course she does!) She doesn’t have a problem; in fact, she doesn’t even like him! (no freaking kidding). We will get the papers on Monday.
And – wait for it…. Drum roll… If we don’t get them Monday - you guessed it...
He will do it himself.
