Toast of The Day

"We've holidays and holy days, and memory days galore;
And when we've toasted every one, I offer just one more.
So let us lift our glasses high, and drink a silent toast-
The day, deep buried in each heart, that each one loves the most."

Joke of The Day

WOMAN'S DIARY - December 28th
Saw him in the evening and he was acting really strangely.  I'd been shopping in the afternoon with the girls and was a bit late meeting him, thought it might be that.  The bar was really crowded and loud, so I suggested we go somewhere quieter to talk.  He was still very subdued and distracted so I suggested we go somewhere nice to eat.  All through dinner he just didn't seem himself - he hardly laughed and didn't seem to be paying any attention to me or to what I was saying, I just knew that something was wrong. 
He dropped me off back home and I wondered if he was going to come in, He hesitated but followed.  I asked him what was wrong, but he just half shook his head and turned the television on.  After about ten minutes of silence I said that I was going upstairs to bed, I put my arms around him and told him that I loved him deeply, He just gave a sigh and a sad sort of smile. He didn't follow me up immediately but came up later and, to my surprise, we made love - but he still seemed distant and a bit cold. 
I cried myself to sleep - I think he's planning to leave me - maybe he's found someone else.
