#66 – The ladies in red

Libby: “You might want to visit the restroom,” I whisper to Melissa. “You’re losing your dress.” I’m not a spiteful person — really, I’m not — but it’s very satisfying to have Oliver looking at me as if I’m a … Continue reading

#65 – All about a dress

Melissa: This dress is kinda tight and I have to suck in my belly because even two pairs of  Spanx aren’t doing it for me. And when you suck in your belly, everything else rises and spills over the top, … Continue reading

#64 – Shades of red (2, not 50)

“Do I look OK?” I ask, fastening the clasp on my necklace, and turning to face Oliver. After a desperate couple of hours yesterday in Macy’s, I’d bought a lipstick red, off-the-shoulder dress to wear to tonight’s torturous party. Now … Continue reading

#58 – Careless whispers

OK. Let’s do this. My finger hovers over the doorbell for a couple of seconds before I push the button. Inside, a torrent of barks from Anita’s dog, Champion, reminds me of the morning at this house, nearly a year … Continue reading

#47 – Showered with affection

Maggie opens her front door, and I hand her a screwdriver set. “Oliver said you needed this urgently,” I say. “He says there should be one in there that fits, but let him know if there isn’t.” I try not … Continue reading

#42 – Something in the water

#38 -The battle of the tigers

Two weeks with Jack at home all the time, and I’m climbing the walls. I’d got used to three hours of freedom a couple of times a week while he was at nursery, and this makes me even more apprehensive … Continue reading

#22 – Champion the Wonder Dog

Back to earth again. No more homemade pancakes, no more working from Starbucks for Oliver, and certainly no more honeymoon antics for either of us, because Oliver is in Vancouver. He might be up to antics of his own there, of … Continue reading

#18 – Table Manners

Oliver and I aren’t dinner party people. We’re pub people, dysfunctional family party people, and under-sufferance office dinner people. Social activities that involve lots of noise and scant opportunity for intelligent conversation are our gatherings of choice. But this isn’t … Continue reading

#17 – Out of the frying pan and into the coffee pot

Oliver sent me an email from work. “Lee said his wife could show you the ropes round here. Her name’s Charlie – why don’t you give yourself a break from the unpacking and give her a ring ?” Lee works … Continue reading
