In light of this - I would like to do the following blog post dedicated to "His Idea versus Her Idea". You will learn a lot about us.... and you will probably be surprised. lol.
His Idea of doing washing: Let's separate everything into colour spectrums. Like blues together. And reds together. No. No socks, we wash separately. Only with other socks. Actually I just need to wash those two blue shirts so I will just put those two blue shirts in by themselves.
Her Idea of doing washing: OMF. Can't we just whack it all in together, get done with it and do something fun instead? No, let's shove more things in there.
His idea of hanging up clothes: Let's hang our T-shirts up on hangers so that they dry straight and un-wrinkly.
Her idea of hanging up clothes: I'm done with this. Let's do something fun.
His idea of packing clothes away in the cupboard: Let's fold them and put them...
Her idea of packing clothes away in the cupboard: *shove*
His idea of a delicious meal: Something cooked up, at home with a myriad of herbs and spices complementing the natural flavours of the dish.
Her idea of a delicious meal: A restaurant. Any restaurant. Take-Away works too.
His idea of cleaning the house: "I'm just going to get the vacuum cleaner"
Her idea of cleaning the house: "Wow. I've never seen that - where did you find that?"
His idea of good Sunday TV: Football. (only when there is no rugby, obvs)
Her idea of good Sunday TV: Pinterest.
His idea of home decor: South African flag, hanging on a box - which has not been unpacked since moving in.
Her idea of home decor: Washi tape, drawings, pictures, sparkly things, throws, throw pillows, more washi tape, more scatter cushions, cuddly toy-animals.
His idea of good bed-linen: THIS THREAD COUNT IS LIKE A BAJILLION!
Her idea of good bed-linen: Who cares? It's not like I can sleep anyway.
His idea of a classy night in: "Let's get out the wine carafe"
Her idea of a classy night in: "Should we not just save time and drink it straight out the bottle?"
His idea of being thoughtful: Not turning on the light at 5:40 when he wakes up for work. Which leaves him getting ready in pitch blackness. With a flashlight.
Her idea of being thoughtful: Attempting to cook supper - without blowing up the kitchen.
His idea of a night alone: David Attenborough. In 3D.
Her idea of a night alone: Internet. ALL the internet.
His idea of love: her.
Her idea of love: him
So basically then - a perfect match in every sense
