Arguments by Tealight

It's been a long time coming, first barbie of the season. Not that it was really the weather for it, do recall a few drops of rain descending on the festivities.

So we cranked up the barbie for it's first outing this season. It fired into action, stoked to be getting some attention.

Gluten free sausages, lamb chops, and a shit load of rocket.

And a bottle of Martini Asti, similar to Asti Riccardona. Blair had a few brews, I had a few bubblies, we had the computer tune flowing. What a great afternoon.

We got another bottle of wine.

Kids off to bed, Blair set the mood with random tealights all over the room. It was all lovely.

Then the nit picking started, both of us.

In the end of headed off to bed in a huff.

Just goes to show, you can set the scene but that doesn't always guarantee the ambience will flow.

One word for you - alcohol.

There is a fine line between fun and fighting. Unfortunately alcohol knows no boudaries where that is concerned.

Spewin your night was ruined.

Aren't fights part of the barbie ritual? Hope it wasn't a bad one (like say the domestic happening next door atm...I'm waiting for furniture to come crashing out the window).

Some advice from an old chook..after the huff and all that when you crawl into the same bed... just as you are going to sleep, no matter the anger and wo is right or wrong...softly slip your hand onto his neck or back or somewhere (don't be rude at this point) and leave it there. You may both be angry but in the morning that little bit of human contact will often heal that anger. It worked for me for years Jules and there were evry few times we slept apart...he was gone too soon but we loved till the end. Just one simple hand and no needing to be right or wrong or tops whatever all the shit.
