Pffft - no pleasing the man

As I was all out of ideas I asked the wisest one in my house - the 5 year old what he thought you should do.

His suggestion was to give him some paper & a few pencils so he can do some drawing. He should (apparently ) put these to good use drawing ... flowers

I could suggest somewhere in Margaret River (actually Metricup) where you can take the dogs if you were interested in doing this....

you know jez, when you are the outside person looking in, the answer really does scream at you.
change YOUR plans and be with him, he doesnt want to fly anywhere to be with you on HIS birthday, he wants YOU to move the earth to be with HIM.
you can reschedule your "impulsive adventure" to another time but his birthday is his birth date.
you might not expect him do do the same for you, but if he did, it would make it all the more SPECIAL.

cheers

Smash if you were friends with Jez on the forbidden site you'd know what a saga this trip has become

Jez....sign a contract, in blood if need be, promising sexual slavery of his choosing upon your return. Pay for his next 12 months gym membership and a subscription to his favourite mag...I don't know, say, 'Sites to Avoid off the Beaten Track in SW WA'. That may float.

In the meantime, grab the high moral ground with both hands and defend it fiercely. He'll end up so peeved and bemused by your stubborn refusal to cave he'll just about be grateful when you get your backside on a plane simply so he gets a reprieve.

If all else fails, come live with my man instead. He doesn't give a sh*t about birthdays and would be completely unfazed that you'd forgotten...and likely he'd appreciate me a little more after spending a week around you

Actually Ladies, im glad I got some opinions, but watching a PG Movie (Zookeeper) tonight at the movies I started psychoanalysing myself to a Lionel Ritchie song.

Easy - Lionel Richie - YouTube

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD ANYONE PUT CHAINS ON ME?? - I guess i forgot his ticket on purpose. To be honest - and honest with myself - I guess theres a bit more to it. Until I met the Giant on a beach in thailand, getting bored and booking a ticket to some strange place was something I did every couple of months. Travelling alone keeps me on the edge, I feel ALIVE when im travelling, taking big bites out of life, I admit im an adventure junkie.
When we met, I was diving alone. He thought that was an awesome thing for a woman to do. Since we hooked up back in Aus..I havent spent a night away from him and its been driving me INSANE. Yes, travelling with someone is fun, hes great to travel with, i never tell him where we are going and he never complains (well, except for vietnam, he yelled GET ME OUT OF THIS COUNTRY NOW..but that was justified, his arse was rotting and he got stuck in the tunnels at Cu Chi). But hes just so bloody organised. Packing..everything in ziplock bags and compartments..setting alarms so we dont miss flights...I LIKE MISSING FLIGHTS!..I think its a combination of his organised, methodical, routine loving personality and my total lack of any form of organisation - if i have a passport, a wetsuit and money thats all i need..I found myself last trip doing things a bit differently to accomodate him. He likes to find a gym and lift his weights so I book hotels with gyms. He likes to do his workout early so Ive been staying away from jaunts out to find the creatures of the night (which is usually why i end up missing planes) and ......arghh i hate saying this...hes 53, he doesnt do 4 flights in a day well so I spread out things a bit more. Me alone, id do 4 flights and crawl onto the 18 hour ferry without a problem.

So why do I feel guilty?..He knew I do this when he met me...is it fair for someone to expect you to totally change what makes you YOU when you get into a relationship?. Ive been good, yes we do the weekly shopping on a thursday, yes we do build a vegie garden, yes we check the calendar to work out when the dogs need their next flea treatment.....AND ITS DRIVING ME NUTS....I want to break free. But am I being selfish in wanting him too? You dont buy a bird and never let it fly.

Arghhh all too hard

Jez - please read the above to Giant then hop on your plane.

It should be all he needs to know & should already know
