Grumpy Boyfriend saved my life!

I feel pretty terrible, to be honest! I have been quite negative lately. Ranting about people cheating on Facebook groups (but they are so naughty!), wanting to kill Grumpy Boyfriend. This is not me!

But you know the truth? Grumpy Boyfriend is an exceptional man! Not only he has been putting up with my drama and tantrums for more than 6 years now, but he also takes care of me.

He deserves a medal, really.

He saved my life just yesterday night! It was very dangerous. I tell you now the full story if you are interested.

Monday night. It was dark and cold. Winter is coming up for sure. Frenchie Mummy had a very hard day, shopping for a new bag. In the end, she only bought some nice clothes for her Baba adoré. She feels a bit bof (so-so) lately.

Her blog is successful. People love listening to her stories and can’t have enough of her giveaways. What you don’t know we have two fabulous competitions right now? It’s here and here. Come on, lecteurs! Enter them and make her happy!

Mais, she is sad. Oui, très triste. Only 3 months and la vie de rêve will be over! Finished being a SAHM, the lies in until 8am in the morning (bliss!), the endless walks and other adventures with Baba.

No more feeding sessions with le bébé.

Non! Frenchie Mummy is feeling pas bien, because she knows… She is going to go back to work in January! How is she going to cope? How is she going to blog as often as now? She feels very depressed and miserable.

So much indeed that yesterday night, when she came back from the weekly shopping (boring!), she tried to end it all. She could not bear it anymore! She had enough!

She grabbed it. She was not thinking straight at the time. That’s all she wanted. Nothing else! She got it in her hands and hit herself. Un, deux, trois… a dozen of times! She could not stop.

She knew it was wrong, but she could not control herself. It was pure suicide. A total meltdown! How come, when she has been so strong and looking really well after herself all this time? She just gave up!

Thank god for that, Grumpy Boyfriend was there and saved her from the fatal mistake. One sentence and he saved her life!

‘Are you really going to polish off this tub of ice cream?!’, slightly sarcastic, while I was stuffing my face with some Häagen-Dazs.

The culprit, the one that got Frenchie Mummy lost...

How could I resist? This new flavour ‘salted caramel’ was un délice!

Mais non, dear readers, I didn’t commit suicide! Well, kind of with all this amount of sugar I injected my body with yesterday…

Merci mon amour. Merci Grumpy Boyfriend for taking the ice cream off my hands and putting it back in the freezer. You saved my tummy from being fat! You know what is good for me!

I love you so much for being so attentive, caring and more sensitive than me! Thank you for being my hero, my knight, the one and only who protects me at all times! Mon Prince Charmant in other words…

One day, my prince will come… and will save me from Madame Naughty Ice-Cream!

Disclosure: This post is not collaborative. Frenchie Mummy went to the shop and like a big girl, she grabbed the ice cream and put it in her trolley. Admittedly, she did it sneakily because Grumpy Boyfriend would have put it back. But Frenchie Mummy can be very good at dissimulating when she wants something. Baba saw her and gave her this look ‘You know you shouldn’t really! I will let you off for this time and not say a word to Papa if you let me watch more cartoons tonight!’

I know Maman’s secret ?

And by the way, the ice-cream is still intact in the freezer!  Zut! Talking about it now made me want some more! Let’s finish it today! Grumpy Boyfriend is not here to stop me this time…

    That was such an adorable post! I love the style of writing you chose for it. Glad to hear the gumpy boyfriend was there to stop you from a downward spiral of feeling bad and miserable. Ice cream only leads to more sadness after all!

    This is fab! I had a similar day myself yesterday.. Though being the only adult in this house means no one to be the sense of reason and ending up feeling a bit queasy! #ablogginggoodtime

    It’s been bloody ages since I last had ice-cream, think I’m gonna grab myself some Ben and Jerrys on the way home from work. If the boyfriend tries to say anything I will tell him to shut his cakehole and remind him that he has been fishing for the past 5 days #ablogginggoodtime

    I would have easily polished off the entire tub. That’s why I don’t buy it. I have absolutely no will power! #Ablogginggoodtime

    What? A compliment for Grumpy Boyfriend? LOL. We all have out guilty pleasures and a bit of ice cream (especially salted caramel!) is bliss! I’m also trying to lose my baby weight at the moment and trying to cut down, but a girl can’t be good all the time. Just enjoy! #ablogginggoodtime

    I can’t help but polish off a whole tub myself, so it totally feel ya pain and good job the other half was there to stop you having a sugar overdose! they can be useful sometimes 🙂 mine is just as greedy as me so sometimes we have one each #ablogginggoodtime

    • thefrenchiemummy
      October 6, 2016 / 4:36 pm

      I feel forr you. I am lucky as Grumpy Boyfriend is not greedy at all. SO I get all the naughty stuff just for me! xx

    I LOVED this post! It was so adorably dramatic, and I was totally reading it in a French accent! Great job, ha
    Ice cream is my weakness as well, and salted caramel would throw me over the edge. Thank goodness for Grumpy Boyfriend! <3 #KCACOLS

  23. October 9, 2016 / 11:30 am

    I sort of feel like he’s both a hero and a villain here! Definitely indulge in a little bit today…but perhaps put a portion in a bowl? I remember the feeling of impending end of Mat Leave. I went back to work Jan this year. Possibly the worst time of year to go back right? It was okay after a few days though and eventually felt normal again. Indulge in the lie-ins and bebe time until then though 🙂 #fortheloveofBLOG and #KCACOLS

    • thefrenchiemummy
      October 9, 2016 / 11:48 am

      haha, you are 100% about him being a vilain. I will be back in January too, just after a fab holiday in France for Xmas. It’s going to be tough, but hopefully, I will burn off more calories got with the foie gras lol. thanks for reading x

  24. October 9, 2016 / 2:53 pm

    aww lol it sounds like you have a keeper there doesn’t it 🙂 that salted caramel flavour is lush and it would be easy to polish off the whole tub. try and enjoy your last three months as much as possible 🙂 I found once I went back to work, the weekends were even more special. and now that my boy is 3, sometimes work is a welcome break haha! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday!

    • thefrenchiemummy
      October 9, 2016 / 3:15 pm

      oh no! I normally don’t buy any so that I am not tempted but I feel like being a bit naughty for once… thanks for reading and commenting x

      • aliduke79hotmailcom
        October 9, 2016 / 3:25 pm

        That’s why we had none, so I won’t be tempted, but then we all need to be naughty sometimes hehe x

  26. October 9, 2016 / 4:08 pm

    He’s a better man than me, because if I saw the ice cream I would have grabbed myself a spoon.
    It’s miserable to have to go back to work, especially when you’ve been home for a while and now that you have a beautiful baby it’s even worse. I remember that feeling after being home for two weeks, I can’t imagine after almost one year #KCACOLS

  27. October 9, 2016 / 5:54 pm

    What a good man! Glad you lived to see another day lady 🙂

    That Baba- what a CUTIE! It is so hard going back to work- I remember it well.

    Haha – thank god for Grumpy Boyfriend! (As for facebook groups…they’re a minefield! I take the let it wash over me approach! I follow the rules, I know there are always some people who don’t. It is annoying and unfair. But I have decided that I’m not going to waste the time being annoyed, or even checking up on people’s compliance. Less stress that way!) #ablogginggoodtime

  33. October 12, 2016 / 2:23 pm

    Ha ha ha I think I may have smacked him if he’d tried to stop me!! We are all negative at times – enjoy the icecream!

    Bravo to your boyfriend. My husband would have not done the same sadly – he encourages things like trips to McDonalds when I have an ill-thought out need for one as it means he gets to eat something other than cous cous (he says) #fridayfrolics
