Perfect advice LS and eee, giving him time to sit in his mancave
He stayed home last night, something he hasn't done in a while. And it was good for me too, I chilled out and just relaxed. Didn't have to walk around on eggshells wondering what is going through his mind or take care of him (he's sick with the flu)
I think it'll be good for him to take time off and sort through this himself alone or with his friends and then realise what he has waiting for him.
