All work and no play

I feel like I am being the worst girlfriend ever at the moment. Im tired (working 40 odd hours), stressed (facing redundancy) and poorly (probably because I’m so tired and stressed!)

The Scientist is still always there for me and a constant pillar of support and sometimes its overwhelming to deal with. He tells me to give up my job if i’m too stressed and he will support me, if i’m tired he will give me massages and make me dinner (ok i’m a shit wifey and he always makes me dinner!) because i’m poorly he went out last night and stocked up on loads of cold and flu stuff.

I’ve just read this back and ‘overwhelming’ seems negative and I don’t mean it like that its more hard to get used to, i’m used to doing things on my own and making tough decisions but now I’ve realised I would be totally lost without him in my life and I dont know what ive done to deserve him.

I feel like he’s a much better boyfriend than I am girlfriend. He’s pretty much got this whole thing nailed and I still cock stuff up and have to remind myself I’m not on my own anymore. I’ve never met someone whose just so kind and loving and expects nothing in return, take last week for example he cooked me a three course meal to celebrate our 8 month anniversary (8 WHOLE MONTHS!!!!!) and because i was too tired to erm….give him some dessert he didn’t mind and was happy just watching love island and having a snuggle, he even went as far to say if he never got any dessert again he would still love me forever!… not sure I can say the same, I love me some regular pudding!

I’m hoping this is just a temporary thing and that work calms down and I feel better soon. We’re off to Italy next week…. I’M SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!! so hopefully I can relax and chill out and after how amazing The Scientist has been give him all the Gelato he deserves 😉

the honeymoon period, love, relationships, my life

The Honeymoon period.

So I was reading an article about how the honeymoon period in relationships is usually over in six months so does that mean it’s all down hill from now for The Scientist and I?

To be honest I’ve barely even got to the honeymoon period with other relationships let alone get past it so I have no idea what’s going on!

I still feel in the early stages. I’m learning new things about him all the time even though we spend a lot of time together. I always look forward to seeing him at the end of the day.

This week he’s away for 4 days….and I know this pathetic but I’m bereft! Absence does not make the heart grow fonder it just leaves an empty space in our bed.

I feel the same way I did about him at the beginning, the excitement is still there and the sex is still the best ever. I want this feeling to last forever. Yes we have our little routines and we’re not going out every evening being wild and crazy but I love this feeling of contentment. Staying in and watching Netflix and then having amazing sex is the one.

For me the honey moon period is over rated, yes it’s exciting but it’s also filled with nervousness, anxiety and games whilst you’re trying to feel each other out. Give me the feeling of being relaxed and comfortable any time over that!

6 months later.

I honestly can’t believe it’s been 6 months already with The Scientist and I. I know to some people this might not be a big deal but for me it’s massive…. he’s officially my longest relationship!

We’ve just moved into our new flat which I love. It’s so nice building a home and seeing all of our things together. I’ve become someone who loves bobbing round IKEA. Who would have thought?!

People say you never truly know someone until you live with them but we’ve been living together for months now and I’m liking everything so far.

I just love spending time with him (once again I’m sorry if this is cringe but I’m so happy!)

I’m also going to try getting back to blogging a bit more as it’s totally gone by the wayside with all the moving. So you should be hearing a lot more from me soon!

me, my life, work, work life, relationships, love

One month later.

So I’ve been living in Essex for a month now, can’t believe how quick it’s gone!

I love living with The Scientist. We have so much fun together. Next month we move into our new flat which will be awesome. Even though I love the flat we are in now it will be nice to have somewhere that’s ours from the beginning. I thought it would be a massive adjustment living together, as I mentioned before I lived alone for 7 years, but it’s not. We just fit together.

Work has been a harder transition I’m not going to lie, I miss my old work friends massively and the laughs and fun we used to have.

I feel that’s it’s completely swapped, before I had my work life in order and my love life was a mess now I have met my person and my work life needs some work! It’s only been a month though so I’m not going to complain and just give things time to settle.

I’m still 100% sure that I made the right decision to leave and move in with my beloved. Hopefully next month we will be in our new flat and I will be as happy at work as I am at home….fingers crossed!

31 day blog challenge, love, changes, life, career

Apologies.

So I’ve officially become the worlds worst blogger and abandoned my 31 day challenge on day 18! In my defence I have been moving house and transferring jobs so I’ve been super busy.

Tonight is the last night I spend in my flat in my own bed….eek! If that bed could talk, well it would probably call me a hoebag! All jokes aside I’m feeling happy and can’t wait to start my life with The Scientist.

I promise I will try and pick back up the challenge over the next couple of days. Tomorrow is the last day at work (I’m pretty heartbroken and emotional over this!) and then on Monday I start my new job and new life as a domestic goddess so please don’t be too annoyed at me if I don’t get around to it for a while!

31 day blog challenge, what i'm afraid of, me, my life

What I’m afraid of.

Day 18 of the 31 day blog challenge.

I re read my post on this from last year and it’s all about being afraid of always dicking around and never having a meaningful relationship. How things can change in a year eh?

As I’ve mentioned before I’m moving house and transferring job in a little over a week and yes I’m afraid that I haven’t made the right decision. I’m leaving everyone behind and starting fresh and it’s scary AF. I love The Scientist but I don’t like change. Don’t get me wrong I’m super excited but I have to admit I’m also terrified!

I guess you’ll find out on this blog if it all works out….fingers crossed!

31 day blog challenge, me, my life, reading, books

Favourite childhood book.

Day 17 of the 31 day blog challenge.

Once again sorry I haven’t done this for a few days I’ve been moving and transferring and have other stresses in my life which is making blogging a bit sporadic at the moment!

I’ve already answered this post in last years challenge and it’s obviously not something that will change so I will copy a little bit of it here:

‘When I was teeny I loved The Rainbow Fish. I think it was because of all the glittery scales, I also loved The Silver Sword and as I got older Jaqueline Wilson was the one. The Nick Sharratt illustrations were everything.

My absolute favourite books were Goosebumps though! I remember loving the bumpy textured covers and writing a list of all the ones I had read, I would always go to the library at school or in town and try and check them all out’

I promise I will try and update this everyday for the last half of this challenge but moving is hard….I have a lot of crap to get through!
