I’ve been married again now for three months and I’m not entirely sure where the time has gone. With life being so… full… at the moment it tends to feel as if we’re cramming in more somehow than any given day should actually be able to hold – and I’m pretty sure that’s mostly down to worry and insecurity on a financial level more than anything else. And yet we’re actually not doing badly on a day to day basis – we have enough to cover the bills and rent, to go out now and then (we went out last night for a meal and to see Prometheus at the cinema as a treat for example) – but with t’other half still only on a temporary contract and my variable income as a writer we’re not really feeling able to make long term plans and that is extremely unsettling.
That said, its also about three years that we’ve been together – and as much as life has thrown a multitude of roller-coaster dips and rises at us, I’ve never had so much fun. We have a sometimes brutally honest loving relationship that is quite unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before and its remarkably freeing. It also helps that we are united in geekery, nerddom and silliness so that we battle over Assassin’s Creed and Skyrim, PS3 and Xbox, and are just as happy with laptops and films as going out to eat, drink and be merry.
So yes, a weekend of celebrations all our own – as well as some sort of river event in London this afternoon 😉 Life’s good.
