It is a beautiful day today. The sun shines in a blue sky and I have nothing to do with all day to do it. It is a day for flopping in a chair with a beer and watch the garden grow. It is a day I do not give a stuff about Brexit, politics or the sexless existance.
A day for simply stopping and smelling the roses then? :-) The human capacity for resilience and finding small moments of joy in the midst of terrible times is something worth celebrating. I too am looking forward to a day of having very little to do, at long last. I have my coffee and music on the go here. Enjoy your day!
For once I have the house to myself and I am looking forward to blissful peace. My husband is often at home as we are both self employed and the strain of sitting next to each other is often very hard. I love days like this! Not too much work to get done, except to check the mortgage situation and see if/when how we could split our finances and thus our lives. Nothing like a little fantasy on a sunny day eh? Enjoy the blue skies and warm wind, the coffee and the garden. I will be!

And after lunch there was ice cream. I also spend time on Rightmove seeing what 50% of my house equity can buy. A nice 3 bedroom place in my home town, yuk, a weird house up on Orkney, new life fantasy. Or a one bed condo in Pattaya as money grubbing ladies drain my bank balance and pent up frustrations. Sigh, the joys of daydreaming.
Hmmmm my phone call to the mortgate co. shows that we won't be paying it off this year sadly. I had been hanging on thinking that once we were free of those monthly payments, we could perhaps look to rent a second property for husband to move into a trial separation basis. Realistically it is going to be another 18months of mortgage repayments before anything can happen unless we seriously disrupt home life for the kids. 50% of our house would buy something not very nice for me and the boys.... You definitely get more for your money in Orkney!
The old mortgage paradox, the houses in the better areas are too expensive and the affordable ones are in the places you do not wish to live. Today the sun has vanished and the rains cometh but the good mood remains.

apocrypha: The "feminist agenda" has changed across the past 60 years. Some feminists of the 60's call the current iteration "fainting couch feminism", thinking it a subversion and betrayal of women's lib. Hard to get a bead on what folks think, using a broad label.

apocrypha: No aspect of that article (which I amount to a magazine offering bad diet advice) promotes rape, coercion (beyond seduction), sexual assault, and I don't understand your public performance suggesting that they would be and thus implicating bfar.

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
