So, it's May Day Bank Holiday here in the UK! I am hangover free and I am ready to compensate for the Sunday I almost missed in its entirety thanks to the hangover from Hell.
Today's rather a big day. As I'm out of the office and my boy is off school for the bank holiday, we decided we should do something fun. So in half an hour I'm going bowling and for a movie and my lad specifically requested the company of my sort of casual girlfriend, Cutie :)
Now then, he's met her before when she and I were just hanging out as friends. But whenever there's a romantic interest I tend to have a no introductions rule for quite some time. I think children can be all too easily confused and he's been through a lot lately. But he specifically asked me to invite her.
So I did.
"Ok," I told him, "I've invited her and she will come along."
"Good," he answered, "I like your girlfriend. She's fun."
So it seems he's a step ahead of me.... I don't know whether I should be worried or not, particularly as she and I currently have a fairly casual set up.
But anyway, he likes her. She thinks he's adorable (something he absolutely plays up to in her company) and she wants to get to know him. So the signs are positive.
The sun is shining in Manchester this morning and my mood is shining too....
Happy May Day!
