Well it’s that time of year again, when you either jump up and
down after receiving a card in the post, or sit on the sofa in your
onesie with the biggest tub of Ben and Jerry’s you can find! To all
of you in the latter category on Valentine’s Day, I send my best
wishes, hugs and kisses.
Love is an amazing thing, exciting and overwhelming. But it’s
the heartache, the cheating and the spitefulness that ruins the
equation. As you have probably already worked out, even when your
glass is half full, the other half is always empty. Basically,
without love we are nothing but with love comes all the things we
hate as well.
Growing up is a tough job. I know people tell you life is hard
and it is. But if growing up and paying bills wasn’t bad enough, we
are faced with a chapter in our lives called relationships.
This chapter in my life started in secondary school. It was a
winter day, grey skies and heavy rain. Our usual group of friends
were busy kicking puddles at each other and doddering along while I
was counting the minutes wishing I was home already. I had a thing
for a boy in my year at school, someone I had also gone to primary
school with. Name? Mark Reeves.
He was a nice boy, good looking, the type of boy your parents
would have been pleased to meet. So after a whole two weeks of
calling him my boyfriend and holding hands, it was time.
The time where your heart pounds and your palms go sticky
because you know you’re going to have to kiss him. Let me rephrase
that, you’re going to have to snog him.
I’m guessing your first snog might have been along the lines of
something very similar to what I’m about to describe. I was
standing in the pouring rain – a great setting if you’re in a
Hollywood romance, but I can assure you this setting was somewhat
Rather than the violins playing in the background and the guy
sweeping me off my feet before caressing my face and gently
pressing his lips to mine, I looked like a drowned rat, shivering
in the cold with a crowd of friends standing around shouting “get
on with it!”.
Then it happened, our heads cocked to the side, a banging of
teeth before a slobbery washing machine of tongue action and
exchange of what I can only describe as minty dribble.
That’s when this relationship chapter really began. I’m pleased
to say all these years on I have finally found the prince among the
frogs and I am quite happy with my partner Mike. So much so I think
this is the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with! All very
grown up, I know. You may have heard me chatting about leaving
subtle hints to Mike about getting engaged on the Breakfast
OK, so maybe not so subtle, but I tried at Christmas and New
Year and it didn’t happen so I’m hoping this week he’ll get the
picture. Tune into Rob Wills and myself every weekday morning on
kmfm Breakfast and I’ll let you know how things pan out.
