What better than a 'love adventure'?
Just months before I got married, alot of people came to tell me about changing from a dating relationship to a marriage. Mind you, alot of the comments were harsh. It was scarey. They told me my husband is bound to change. They told me our relationship would change.
For sure I knew things would change. I dont expect stepping into a new phase of life, committing myself to another without any changes. But I seriously didnt think it would be that bad. I was told all these stories about bad behaving husbands and mistreated wives. ...Surely, logically speaking, ... it just cant simply happen overnight like that right?
Then I realised it was a obstacle. These people may have meant well for me, maybe they were looking out for me or simply maybe there were other reasons. But for me to live in that constant state of mind will just put my marriage in jeopardy. Why should I scare myself of things that may not come? I should have enough trust in the man I chose for this new journey. I should be confident in handling our relationship.
..So we got married. ..and boy am I glad to report that THINGS ARE GOOD! Its not scarey. Its not awful. Infact, once I got married, I recevied all these well wishes and people telling me marriage is wonderful! I dont know what the future holds, (and i really dont want to jinx myself) but I do know as long as both my husband and I have the heart to work things out, things cant go that bad.
So heres what us newlyweds do:
-We buy everything x 2. ie. two new tooth brushes, two lunch boxes
-We prepare everything x 2. ie. two breakfasts, two lunches, two drinks
-We have childish behaviour- we give each other funny names, play hide and seek, sing weird songs and laugh till we gasp for air.
-We jokingly fight for bedspace. What happened to having my own bed where I can literally swim and wave or kick in?
-We want to buy ear plugs so we dont hear each other snoring.
-And when we're not snoring, we cuddle. :)
-We love waking up and telling each other to go to the toilet first just so theres extra snooze time. [Now theres full reason to blame it on someone else. tee..hee...]
-We share alot more time together and talk more too.
See..all aint that bad right?

For those who've been following me since my previous blog, you'll know that hubby and I are building a small cosy house. We started quite a few months ago, but have been held back terribly by bad weather.Anyway..last week we finally had our floor cast!! By Saturday they were doing more site measurements for the columns and walls. Cool!
I stood there thinking where my couch will be, how my large doors will ventilate the room, how my study room will have all my craft things and how my kitchen should be suffice for all the pots and pans. Ahhh...
Then I thought about the toilets I have to clean and the shelves I have to wipe. Bleh..

I've tried various recipes for chocolate cupcakes. Some have been too dry, some too hard and some just haven't got the right taste. I've FINALLY gotten a keeper. I adapted it from Australian Women's Weekly : Cupcakes, Cheesecakes & Cookies book. Divine!
I'm craving for the most unhealthy stuff right now...heres a bit of eye-candy so I can lure you in with me!
Some oily-non-healthy crispy on-the-outside and juicy on the inside fish and chips. [Think I've been craving it since my friend told me she's making it for dinner] Cicerellos anyone?

I had it all planned.. I'd been lying to my husband the whole week. Everyday after work I escaped to my mum's telling him I was there to clean up and stuff. It worked...until the day before valentines.
..His sms read [ I know what you've been up to ]. I ignored it..and went along with my plans.
I made the card and some Belgium chocolates..thinking 'I bet you wouldnt figure this one out'
On Valentines eve I careful placed the box of chocolates on the bed, shone the bed light on it [thinking 'you cant miss this one'] and hid in my wardrobe. My husband came in..and started looking for me. He searched high and low, behind the bed, below the bed, behind the curtains, then opened the wardrobe to find me standing inside. lol. He didnt notice the chocolate box till much later [grrr]
Nevermind I thought..I had hid a valentines card in his laptop so that he would see it first thing when he went to work. This one didnt work either. When he opened his laptop, his boss came into his room and he was more eager to hide the card than to be surprised. [he later accidentally left it in the office. more grrr. ]
Remember how i had a random thought and said that it was funny seeing all the guys fleeing to the florist? Well, hubby decided he'd confess he was one of them after reading my statement. Anyhow.. he woke up early the next morning to go to the florist only to find they forgot about his order. He then brought back a awkward looking bouquet which the florist had instantly put together by taking flowers out of other bouquets. [dun think he'll go to this florist anymore].
So the only surprise that did work was a card he left on the dressing table. I saw it first thing when I woke up. Sweet.
Its funny thinking about all the efforts we put into 'surprising' one another..and they all ...err...sucked. Guess its part of the novelty of being husband and wife..
Nevertheless, we had a wonderful weekend...and had a good laugh about everything. I love surprises!
I lead a loving simple life with a wonderful husband and a doting family. I love anything creative: from crafts to cooking. I use to blog in Pillow Talks..you can read more about me there.
I have fond memories of great friends sitting around, just talking about everything and anything in life. Fortunately, I still have those great friends..but we're all scattered in different parts of the world now. ...But thats what insipred this blog : friends sharing their lives, whether its mundane things or exciting moments.
..I've chosen to share with you and would love to hear from you too.
