6 years today, we made it official! 

6 years ago today my hubby and I made our relationship official. We had meet a few weeks before and had been seeing each other almost constantly. (When he wasn’t at work, I wasn’t at college or my boys were awake)

When I first met my hubby I wasn’t looking for a relationship, I was happy being a single mum to my 2 boys. We had a great set up were T was in school and P went to nursery while I went back to college full time to redo my GCSE’s.  

 

But all that changed when I went out for a night out with friends, walked into a bench and as my hubby say “presented him with an opportunity!” (Yes he was being vulgar!)

It was after that night that we started seeing each other for a while. I really liked my him but I was t young to rush into anything because I had my boys to think about plus I had been hurt when pervious relationships ended badly.

 

 

My hubby was great and really understanding about me not wanting to introduce him to T and P before I was ready and thought we had something together. He understood why he was only allowed to come see me once my boys were in bed or come and steal an hour to take me for lunch while I was college. 

He used to be so romantic standing outside my college building with flowers or a single rose (notice how I said “use to”!). It was amazing and I quickly found myself falling head over heels for him, so much so that I blurted out “I love you!” after only being together a month. 

It was round about then that introduced him to my children and I met his daughter. We all got on great at first and my boys loved finally having someone to wrestle and play fight with. 

We got engaged after 18 months because I had told the hubby I wanted more and that meant we start trying for a baby or we got engaged. A few weeks later I found out I was pregnant with E and her conception date was around about the day we got engaged.  

 The hubby moved into my house while I was pregnant and when E was born we stopped being in a relationship and became a blended family.  

We finally got married on the 8th March 2013 after being together nearly 4 years. (I was actually 11 weeks pregnant with baby when I got married). Our wedding was one of the happiest days of my life because finally I was marrying this man that I was so madly in love with. He was some one who loved me for me and had seen me at my worst and still wanted to be with me.

When baby arrived our family an lives were complete.  

 Now I’m not saying that over the years everything has been easy or prefect because we have both had our low points where we have done or said the wrong things. But even when that happens we tend to try and work through our problems and figure something out. (I said tend because sometime it can take a few nights of hubby on sofa before we are able to forgive and talk about the problem) 

But one thing I know is that over the last 6 years my hubby and I have changed (not always for the better) loads and I know that because of him I have learnt how to love, trust and let another person (other then my kids) in to my heart. Because of that night I found my soul mate and the person I want to spend the rest of my life. 

So thank you for the last 6 years of (almost complete) happiness and I hope we have many, many more years to come.

I love Hubby x

Arguments

Unfortunately this week my word is arguments.

T has hi thus peek this week and is giving us the full preteen preview of what our life is going to be like in a couple of years.
It isn’t pretty 😦

Everything we had done, said or tried has been twisted around and thrown back at us. Making us out as terrible pedants because he had fine dine thing wrong. It’s has just been at home though it’s also happened still school.
Where him doing something simple and rather minor ended up turning in a big thing. Something he could of easily of prevented if he had just listened and done as he was told. Turned into him getting a double cooler because he ignored to his teacher, walked away ignoring her and then refused to give her his planner.

He has hit rebellion city, population T!

Add that to the fact that hubby and I haven’t been in the best with each other and have been having a few harsh words or disagreements with each other, as of late and my week has been basically full of arguments.

Hubby and I have worked things out and both agreed we just needed some “US” time. So we arranged a date night and cook ourselves a nice 3 course meal with a bottle of wine. (we may have only been in our living room but the effort was there)
We took the time yo clear the air and I believe harmony has been restored in that department.

Now we just need to get through to the preteen with the chip on his shoulder.

Wish me luck!

Nikki ❤
