Ok, before you start to think that I have a habbit of opening peoples personal mail - which I don't - let me just say that A) Glann TELLS us to open his mail coz he's usually not there, and B) Any hand written mail - even addressed to Glenn - is norammly eBay stuff and therefore for me!

only had three bit of office mail - a promo mag, something for accounts (Andrea) and one hand wirtten envalope. I didn't even bother to read who it was addressed to, they are ALWAYS eBay payments. Ripped it open. No cheque. Ok, so it's a letter off a cuastomer, maybe there's a complaint and they havn't emailed for what ever reason.

Top line of letter says "I think you should know what your so called Girlfriend has been doing behind your back"

Pause - hessitate. Some fool thinking that I, Charlie, am a man, not a woman, and is trying to wind me up? Some disgruntled customer?? Picks up envalope. Clearly marked for Glenn....... panic sets in!

I handed the letter to Andrea without finishing reading it. Andrea reads it, and in a state of shock, hands it back. I read the rest (it's only quater of an A4 sheet). No signature - obviously. It basically claimed that Alison has been sleeping around with anything that has a pulse. We had already guessed this!

Mmmm What to do now? Glenn will know it's been opened and read, and that's our job, so he wont be mad at us, but he will be embarased that we have seen it. So bin it then? Shred it? But by keeping it away from him, are we interfereing? Ok, so we leave it on his desk then?? No.... we know what it says and it should be delt with delicatly. Just because they've split, doesn't mean Glenn wont be hurt or angree about the letter. Andrea offers to say she opened it - but she's really ill and has too much on, I can't ask her to do that. I say that since I opened and read it, it's my job to work out what to do.

Mention it to Gemma, she agrees.

So once Glenn arrives, Andrea goes home ill, I send Gemma to the shop for more printer paper, and I apprach Glenn, shaking and worried about his reaction. I explain why I opened and read it, that I stopped at the first line, an that it's probably just something and nothing, a sick joke or something. He reads it.

He Laughs!!!

He said that is probably not bull shit, but that who ever sent it is being vendictive, and clearly doesn't know he and Ali have split, or that Glenn is already looking for a new place to live. He says Ali will prob be upset by it, but that he will take it and show her anyway (??)

I told him I was stunned by him being calm, that I had torn my self apart trying to work out if I should even show it to him, and he laughed again, but thought it was sweet that I was so worried. I didn't tell him the others knew!!!

He was still in a great mood all day - even piping up from the back when me and Gemma were talking about how all gay men seem to still fancy Kylie that he liked her too (more suggestion of his being gay??????), but when he went to pick Ali up from Fest Market, he seemed a little more up tight. She was aat in his car, and he said "it's seems I'll be shooting right off...." and left again. He said a cheery bye bye, but he was harrased when he was bringing stuff in. Guess he showed her the letter.

Not going to see him now till Thursday. I wonder if he'll say anything about it?

Anyway, have to go and email or text Andrea, tell her he was ok, and see if she's fit for work tomorrow.

You know, I'm stunned we ever actually get any work done in this office!

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
