If I didn't have you.

I had the most beautiful morning today.  My lovely husband and I went to the local surf club for breakfast.  We sat out on the deck overlooking the beach and the ocean.  We even saw a whale....or a was hard to tell from 5kms away.  Either way there was a dark shape out there which was definitely moving.  We were having such a lovely morning that I forgave the useless chef for over-cooking my poached eggs.  (Of course he stuffed them up because I didn't have to pay an extra friggin dollar.)  I also forgave the barista for making my coffee too strong.  What the hell is a barista anyway?  We used to have coffee-makers, now someone is trying to culture us up and turn our perfectly good coffee-makers into baristas.  Well, can I tell you something barista person?  Just cause you call yourself a barista doesn't mean you make the coffee any better.

Anyway, I was having quite a lovely morning when I had a moment of reflection which made me pause for a moment.  I looked at my husband and thought to myself "what would I do if I didn't have you?".  It scared me a little bit actually.  I mean he's not perfect.  Actually he's far from it.  But I quite like him and for just a moment I wondered what my life would be like if he wasn't around.  I pondered this and tried to think how I could put it into words.  I then decided I couldn't be bothered, so I thought I'd leave it up to Tim Minchin do it for me.  So, take it away Tim.......


  1. How funny! As I started reading the title of the post it made Tim Minchin start playing in my head. Weird. :)


  3. I was drawn to post. Pondering the "what ifs" can be a scary thing, yet be a wonderful thing as well. I do it all the time. The best thing for me is not do either (how very hard!!) because I tend to not be in the moment with my present life. I'm getting better with that! But the surf club for breakfast with an amazing view? Heaven!
