Speak My Language?

So it turns out, there are five languages of love

Bren and I were chatting about it this morning. We agreed that Ziggy's language is Physical Touch and Luca's is Quality Time. I pointed out quite strenuously that mine is Receiving Gifts. Gifts.    

Maybe this is the modern version of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus but the concept resonates with me; the idea that communication fails in relationships because what each person considers to be an expression of love and appreciation can differ. Understanding what our partner/friend/child needs to feel valued is an important step in best communicating love to them. And vice versa.

"So which language do you think you are?" I asked Bren, my partner, my love.

"Headjobs," he replied.

I blinked.

"It was six languages, wasn't it?" he asked.

"No, just five, darling," I said, "I think maybe you mean Physical Touch."

"No, no. I mean headjobs. Just headjobs."

 Perhaps if a lady received more gifts, they might be more inclined to give more….gifts, too.

Just sayin'….

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Ha that sounds exactly like my hubby. He pulled out his old “need head” shirt the other night and was strutting around like a peacock. I said I need the washing up done too bit I doubt it will happen for me eeither…..
