It has taken over twenty years but Partner-who-loves-tea has at last earned the right to use my surname. As I have mentioned before, our family – i.e. my parents and brother, my daughters and son – are noted for their punctuality. Partner-who-loves-tea is noted for her lack of punctuality. If I ask when she is going to be home it is with a lot more hope than anticipation of her being within an hour or two of the time stated. And the answer is usually pretty vague any way – usually along the lines of “About 7 or 8 – somewhere round there.” So imagine my surprise when this phone texting conversation took place the other day:-
Me at 11.14 a.m. – “Lost track of appts. When will u b home? J”
Jo’s reply at 11.19 a.m. – “About 1.22. Jo. x.”
And, what was even more unbelievable – she arrived a few minutes early!
Welcome to my world, Jo.
