new hair and how to introduce your new boyfriend to your parents...

'behind blue eyes' - the who

so, how do you like the new hair? am aiming for a bob, but that will take a while...
still loving my dark hair though...
(sorry for the crap photo - my mobile camera sucks)

was talking to my dad last night. my dad is a good man, but very English at times...
this is part of our conversation:

Dad: So, you at home now?
Me: No, erm... [awkward pause - still uncomfortable, at the age of 33, to tell my dad that i'm at my boyfriend's place] I'm at my boyfriend's.
Dad: Oh.... [awkward pause while dad thinks about what to say] So, you got a new boyfriend?
Me: Yes...
Dad: Oh. do you want to speak to your mother, then?
Me: OK.

Then my mum proceeded to tell me about the Turkish & Croatian plumbers & electricians that are fixing up their house...

Then a couple of hours later, i met all (and i mean ALL) K's family on Skype.
In German!
And no, i don't speak any German....but i am learning.
Slowly... K's proving to be a good teacher... (smile)

BTW - you remind me a bit of the lovely Lisa Stansfield with the new hair.

I feel the need to add the 'dad point of view', that I got from him in a phone call at the weekend. Weird that you both felt the need to describe the same conversation, but anyway.

He says he asked where you were & you reluctantly went 'at my boyfriend's' all in a rush. And he then went 'Oh...?' hoping you would tell him stuff and you didn't so he thought you didn't want to talk about it... and then you didn't seem to want to say anything else at all so he handed you over to our mother.

So the Dad view is that *YOU* are the one who is very English at times by not wanting to tell him anything!

little sister

ps. I told him instead :p
