For someone who is asleep, he has a lot of attitude.

This past weekend was my birthday, I am now 26.  I know, it came as kind of a surprise to me too.  Today in the car on the drive back from our country weekend, I was thinking about how it felt to be 27...several minutes later I realised that, um, I had turned 26 only the day before.  And then I put my shoes on the wrong the feet.

Anyway, I'll give a full birthday recap throughout the week, but today I want to talk about Inspector Climate.

Some of you gave him a bit of a hard time in the comments on the last post about getting married. And trust me I know he says the wrong things sometimes, but I know exactly where his heart is (with me).

In the middle of last week I had Return of the Cyst: Episode Two.  In the middle of the night I woke up with such intense pain that I wondered if I was getting killed by Gaddafi (which also holds an important lesson: don't watch the news before bedtime).  As I woke up more and realised that my ovaries and possible my uterus were trying to claw their way out of my stomach I knew I was in for a long night.  I didn't want to wake up Inspector Climate, so I just held on to my belly and practiced my moaning.

About an hour later, Inspector Climate rolled over - looked at me and asked if I was ok.

I grimaced and said no I wasn't and that my tummy hurt a little.

"Oh, because of the [Insert Name of the Report Here]?"

(Now let me back up a bit and say that Inspector Climate not only has had to deal with the whole visa thing, the cyst thing, but has been working insane hours to get this [Name of the Report Here] in on time....And we're back in).

"Um, no...I've been up for about an hour with really bad tummy pains...are you actually awake?"

"Yes, you just said that you're tummy hurts because you've been working on [Insert Name of the Report Here] for a month"

"Uh...Inspector Climate that's not what I said, but way to make this about you. You're not awake..."

"WhatEVER" he pouted.

Of course, when he did wake up fully and naturally didn't remember a single part of that conversation...he brought me some panadol (for you Americans that's Tylenol) and was careful not to touch me the rest of the night.


  1. Lol, boys will be boys! as long as you know where his heart is :) hope you feel better :(( xx

  2. happy belated birthday :) Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Happy Birthday Deidre! 27 is a good age to get married - I recommend it :)

  4. Happy 26. I'm sure he's learning lots of new things too..about you as the days go by.

  5. Hey !
    Happy Birthday :)
    I think 27 is the perfect age to get married


  6. Happy Birthday!!! ((hugs)) for the cysts. I get them, too. So painful. I've had some success with mind guided imagery. It is kind of hard to explain but on my blog I did some posts on it. Basically I mediate on my ovary/cyst and healing thoughts to it. It sounds coo coo crazy but it works for me. If you want to read about it search my blog for Hildegard the Cyst Busting Fairy.

  7. Happy Belated Birthday! I have had full conversations while asleep, so I laughed out loud at this one. Sorry you were feeling so crappy. Hope you feel better soon! *hugs*

  8. Whoops maybe I wasn't clear..I actually turned 26 on Saturday! I was just having a senior moment in the car.

  9. Haha, nice. Gotta love that kind of stuff.

  10. ha ha, how funny are sleeptalking conversations?!

    happy belated birthday!

  11. Happy SITS day a few days late! Hope it was a great one:)

  12. Hahaha!! The Man does that to me all the time. He will roll over and ask if he needs to take the trash out - at 4am - or if I remembered to give the kids a bath...seriously?? The next morning we will wake up and he has no memory of the conversations we had!


  13. Oh boys....well happy 26th to you! :)

  14. My husband will say the weirdest things and then never remembers them! It's hilarious.

  15. I will be 26 next year.. Still feeling weird, I don't feel like 25 at all.. Maybe early 20's :) So, happy birthday.. little late, but better late then never.

  16. Firstly, Happy Belated Birthday!! Hope there was cake or chocolate in there somewhere during the weekend.

    And hahaha at Inspector Climate. He reminds me of a typical male. He's still sweet for asking if you're ok though :)

  17. Happy Belated! And I'm sorry to hear about your pain - hopefully you get that fixed up soon!

  18. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope your ovaries give you a rest, and that immigration will be slightly less painful. My sister moved to South Africa last October and just now got her work permit, after much bureaucracy and gnashing of teeth. I know it was a huge stress for her. She teaches English as a Foreign Language--I will have to tell her that English actually a Foreign language as well in your case. . .

  19. happy belated birthday! i hope you have a great year ahead of you! :)

    <3, Mimi
