We have been married for almost 8 months now... 
Marriage teaches you some stuff.

* * * * * *

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

That balances out very nicely - complimentary colours, not grey smudged mix!

This basically also sums up Adam and I. Right down to every detail. Why are boys so obsessive about laundry?

Keri Bainborough said...

Stephanie Swan said...

Caley said...

Match made in heaven! And it shows that sometimes opposites (in some ways) definitely do attract and complement each other x
