It was the school holidays last week, we went to the cinema to watch The Chipmunks.
We enjoyed, it was really funny.
Alvin, Simon and Theodore-able were up to their usual tricks.
Dave, their “Dad”, was planning a special surprise for a woman, or so they thought.
Alvin, Simon and Theodore presumed that Dave was going to get married, and would not want to be their dad anymore.
So they hatched a plan to “spoil” the proposal, and a wild adventure ensued.
It turned out that the chipmunks had got it all wrong, and Dave didn’t want to marry the woman, or leave them, in fact it was quite the opposite, he was planning to adopt the furry little buggers.
I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the chipmunks story and something which happened to me and Mrs Clarke before we were married.
Unbeknown to me, I had been really quiet during the month leading up to a special weekend we had planned to celebrate our birthdays (they are a few days apart).
What she didn’t know was that I was thinking about popping the big question.
“Will you do my washing and ironing my darling?”
Just kidding, I was planning on proposing.
I was quiet because I was trying to make my mind up if it was the right thing to do, it’s a big decision.
Would she even say yes?
And as a result, I must have given her the impression something was wrong. (Because I’m normally so talkative).
By the time the actual weekend came around, I was a bag of nerves.
And so was she.
She thought I was going to call it all off and that I didn’t want to be with her anymore!
How wrong she was.
Of course, you know by now that I asked the question (somewhere in the Brecon Beacons) and she said yes!
She told me that she had been worried that I was going to dump her.
I told her not to be silly, that wouldn’t happen as we were a perfect match, she likes multi-tasking and I like doing naff all!

But seriously, we jump to the wrong conclusions all the time.
What are we like eh!
We do it in lots of areas of our life, not just with relationships.
Now I can’t protect you from jumping to the wrong conclusions with your relationships or stuff going on in your personal life.
But I can help you not to do it with your fitness and food.
