Sitting in the waiting room at the doctors and there’s a toddler sitting across from me. She hasn’t stopped staring at me since I walked in and every time I look over at her she gets this huge smile on her face. My day is made.
Tonight, for the first time in the three and a half months we’ve been together, I sat in my girlfriends living room whilst both her parents were home. Even though her mum completely ignored me, her Dad spent over an hour just watching TV and chatting with us. It felt good to be recognised as her girlfriend rather than just a shadow.
