I love. I hate #3

I hate:

  • When you make a cup of tea and accidentally leave the teabag in for 10 minutes.
  • The fact that my 6 year old can manipulate me.
  • The fact that my 9 year old STILL finds farting hilarious.
  • Ridiculous school rules.
  • Waiting to hear whether my son has secured a place at the school he desperately wants to go to.
  • Hearing about friends going through hell and you can do nothing but listen.
  • Thoughtlessness.
  • Passport renewals for a bloody six year old.
  • When I try to take my contact lenses out and I’ve not actually put them in . . .
  • People who judge. Judge judge judge.
  • Reaching for a Magnum from the freezer only to find an empty box because one of the kids didn’t throw it away.

I love:

  • Quality hand cream.
  • Doctor Who.
  • When you take THAT photograph.
  • My angora thermal socks from Marks and Spencer.
  • Roast dinner with lashings of gravy.
  • Dog walks.
  • Trees.
  • Winning at Words With Friends.
  • Any film with Hugh Jackman in.
  • Moroccan oil for my hair.
  • Standing on the sidelines watching my boy play rugby.
  • Parcels for me in the post.
  • Helping others, just because.
  • The fact that my 6 year old wears what the hell she likes.
  • That moment when your kids are old enough to see the movies you want to see.
  • Hugging (still).
  • Friends (always).

I appear to have way more loves than hates; I must be mellowing.
I’m always banging on about my love/hates . . .  What are yours?
