I Don’t Get it

I know I got married relatively young, I was 25 (well 3 days away from it anyway), so maybe I don’t have the right to air my views on this. But why do people get married so young? Why?

I know of people that are 19 or 20 and planning their weddings. If I look back to myself when I was that age and compare it to me now, I’ve changed an awful lot, and the guy I was with then, well, I certainly couldn’t see myself being married to him now.

Are you capable of knowing what love really is when you’re that young and haven’t experienced anything? You haven’t gotten to know any other guys, you haven’t seen the world, you haven’t even got a full time job. How then can you give everything you’ve got into being married?

Specifically, these people I’m talking about are in a religion. A religion that discourages long relationships and encourages young marriage as sex before marriage is a no no. But by the same accounts, this religion also hates divorce. So you get pressured into a young marriage, but if you do realise it was a mistake, well, there’s not a fat lot you can do about it. I left that religion a while ago and actually took it upon myself to make my own decisions about my life and I have ended up getting almost everything I ever wanted. And I haven’t dropped down dead.

And although I was young(ish), I went out with more than one lad, I went on holidays with my mates, I got myself a good job and was earning a decent wage. Getting married wasn’t something I needed to do, it was something I wanted to do. To me, it was more than just about a big dress and pretty flowers. I wanted a marriage, not a wedding.

Do I make sense?

I’m Back


I haven’t been on holiday all this time. I just found myself in a blogging rut. I could moan about my kitchen, but you’d be bored of that pretty quickly. I could post pictures of Frankie, but you’d get fed up of that. I could tell you about work, but that wouldn’t be very interesting. So I didn’t really have anything to say.

So I didn’t say anything. And nobody really missed me anyway. Lol

Well, work is still good. Frankie is still gorgeous, and the kitchen still isn’t done yet. It’s getting there though. Painting is mostly finished and units are in the process of being built.

I’m on a course with work this week, so haven’t been home since Sunday. The internet has been my friend as I have brought my laptop with me and have connected to the wireless connection here. I go home tomorrow though! Yay! The course has not been the most interesting thing made worse by the trainer we have. He is the worlds most boring man who is rubbish at what he does. If he doesn’t know the answer to something, he wont go and find out, he’ll just say he doesn’t know. Its obvious he’s in a hurry because he speeds things up so much and he wont wait if someone is struggling and when we’ve got exercises to do, instead of walking round making sure everyone is alright, he’ll play on MSN messenger and write on forums and stuff. Now maybe I’m just more critical because I’m a trainer, but he just sucks!

And he doesn’t like blogs. Apparently the only people who blog are people who are so big headed they reckon people are actually interested about their lives. Hmmm

I’ve also discovered Facebook and it’s just brilliant! I’ve caught up with so many old friends on there, and this Saturday I’m actually meeting up with my best friend from school. I’m so excited!!

I Must be MAD!!!

I’ve signed up to do a sponsored sky dive for Tommy’s, the baby charity. It takes place on August 25th. I have never been so scared, nervous and excited in all my life.

I’m aiming to raise £1000 and I’m halfway there with one single sponsor thanks to the company that hubby works for!

I’ve tried to raise sponsor money from my blog before and it hasn’t worked, so I’m not going to post the link, if people want to sponsor me, they’ll let me know.

Wish me luck everyone!!

Brain Fart

Hubby, MBM and I went out to dinner tonight. YUM!! It was SOOOO nice.

Anyway, when we got home, we looked at the moon and saw that the eclipse was happening.

Now MBM is a very intelligent bloke. Brain like a box room in fact. Knows everything about everything, uses big poncy words that we don’t know they meaning of, etc. So hubby and I looked at each other in disbelief when MBM said in all seriousness:

“So, is that Mars covering the moon then?”.

I actually got to spend some time with hubby this weekend. He’s been working late lots recently, in fact, I’m waiting for him to come home now, the enchilada’s are waiting to go in the oven! He was working until about midnight on Friday and he worked some of Saturday morning. I’ve joked with him saying that me and some of the other wives should make a club and call it “The *Company Name* Widows”.

Anyhow, this weekend MBM came to stay. So we bored him with kitchen stuff and dragged him along to some kitchen appointments. And we think, that we MAY have found our new kitchen. Going to get one or two more quotes just to make sure, but I’d happily go with the one we saw on Sunday.

The weirdest thing happened yesterday. I got a text message that Andie sent me on New Years Eve. Yep, nearly two months after she sent it!!

We’ve sold one of the cars. We don’t need two. Not when I’m getting the train everyday and hubby is mostly(!) working from home. So it’s goodbye to my little baby. My Ka. We’ve still got it at the mo, and although it was a mutual decision to sell him, I’m going to be heartbroken to see him go. Buying him was a bit of a milestone for me, it marked the end of something bad and the beginning of the rest of my life. I know it’s just a car, but I will miss him. However, in return, I get a shiny new kitchen. Let’s just hope I make it through my six month probation otherwise we’ll have to go out and buy another car.

I have Thursday and Friday off this week. On Thursday evening, hubby, MBM and I are going to Wembley to see Keane. Work has been so mad the last week or so, I’ll be glad of the time off to relax and sleep.  Is it just me, or does anyone else find that on a Sunday night they don’t sleep as well as they do any other night? No? Just me?
