Bonjour chers lecteurs!
Back with the 30 Days Blogging Challenge! Today it’s all about a habit I wish I didn’t have. Ooh la la, this challenge is becoming increasingly difficult and personal.
Well, I know that I have a couple of bad habits and they can be quite annoying. When I asked Grumpy Boyfriend for his opinion (you see, even if he was very negative about the blogging thing, he is indirectly part of it!), he first laughed. How can I ask him that!? To him, it was obvious that my worst habit was my mood swings.
I can be very good at complaining and moaning. Being a perfectionist, I want it all and I want it now.
So it’s true to say that when I don’t have what I want, I can literally throw my toys out of the pram. Grumpy Boyfriend loves using this expression and in honesty, he has a point. I can be very demanding at times. I still wonder sometimes how he is still with me after more than 6 years together. I can be very argumentative and moody when I don’t have what I want. Spoilt, moi!? Never!
I would blame it on Grumpy Boyfriend. It’s totally sa faute! When we met back in 2010, he instantly treated me like a princess. Within a couple of weeks dating each other, we went on a romantic trip to Paris where he bought me a very nice (and expensive!) Longchamp handbag.
It’s my favourite Frenchie handbags’ brand. Ok, one of my favourites as I also like Karen Millen, Kate Spade, LK Bennett and Louis Vuitton…
So basically, I am a bit of diva and when I don’t have it my way, I can become your worst enemy. Literally, I transform myself into Mumzilla!
De plus, I am very bad at hiding my feelings. My face says it all when I am not contente about something. I sigh, I roll my eyes up and I ‘throw away my rolling pin across the room’. Another expression from Grumpy Boyfriend, aka my very mean and naughty boyfriend. I then happily mutter under my breath ‘Merde! Putain! That’s boring!’ And when Grumpy Boyfriend tries to talk to me through the problem (like any normal adult would do in this kind of circumstances), I just ignore him and barely manage to whisper (no, I actually shout!) a vibrant ‘je m’en fous!’ If you really want to know, it means ‘I don’t care’. Well, it’s more like ‘I don’t give a damn!’
When I am in one of the moments described above, I am a real monster. I shout, I bang things. I broke a couple of objects in the house. Once back in the days we were sharing our first little flat with mon homme, I got annoyed about something. Probably a very trivial thing as I can’t even remember what it was now!
Anyway, I slammed the door so badly that I broke the small mirror that was on it! I had to get it repaired and I think it cost me a whopping £200! A fortune at the time, as I was a student… Writing about it today, I am far from being impressed with myself.
I am getting better (or I think so), but we still have some of these moments sometimes. And you want to know the best? I think that Baba has the same temper as maman…It’s so funny. One moment, he is happy and suddenly, he has his moody face on. He looks at you and you can just read his thoughts: ‘What on earth is going on? I am not content!!’ He screams and throws away whatever he has in his hands. 2 minutes of cries and shouting (no real tears, though…) and then, a happy Baba is back. He smiles at you, he giggles. Oops, we might have a Babyzilla in the house! Get prepared for more mood swings!
Done and dusted! See you soon for some new adventures in the 30 Days Blogging Challenge. And in the meantime, don’t forget to share with us your worst habit. Surely, Frenchie Mummy is not the only one to have a dark side ?.
