The secret diary of a single parent bloke

Collecting my things

Uploaded: Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Saturday, January 7th, 2006.

I’ve been to collect some things that I’d left at Jody’s house. It’s been nearly two months, and I’ve been putting off picking them up- I’m not sure I can bare to see her again. We’ve exchanged a few messages during this time, and she posted a birthday present to Natalia, which was nice of her.

It was a 45 minute drive to her house, and a sunny winter’s day, but I was trembling all of the way. How would I feel? How would she act? Would there be any chance of a reconciliation? I really hoped so, but despite how I felt, I knew that we’d broken up for the right reasons.

I eventually got to her house and knocked on the door. It seemed to take an eternity before she answered it, but when she did, I was met by her wonderful wide smile- and my heart lifted. She looked happy to see me, and asked how I was. I hoped she’d ask me in, but I was really worried about how I’d handle the situation, I was as nervous as hell!

Then I glanced over her shoulder. On her sofa was a man- one who looked just like me. He was even dressed in a similar way. My heart sank. I can’t even remember what we next said, but I left very quickly. I was distraught.
