Yesterday marked an anniversary between Terry and I, of another year that had passed with us still managing not to strangle each other to death. We thought it might have been the five-year mark, but couldn’t quite remember, and so instead passed the time by eating tuna steak and drinking copious amounts of cocktails. Or I did anyway, and it was rather wonderful. I bought him bacon soap and he bought me a necklace depicting a panda sat inside a cupcake… and then we came home, and I fell asleep from 19:30 to 06:00, when I promptly got up and got ready for work. Romance certainly isn’t dead… it’s just sleeping for an extensive amount of time.
To celebrate I thought I’d share some pictures of the two of us. For five (or so) years, we don’t really seem to have that many, and we weren’t able to take any photos of us both together during our meal yesterday without them ending up either blurred, or having too much of the underside of the table in show; so instead these are a select few pictures from our time together that span the years and the entirety of our relationship.
From the day we met, at my Uncle’s wedding reception; me in my red velvet dress, and you in your shoes with skulls on- to right at this very moment, sat in our home; me on the laptop typing away and trying not to go to sleep again, and you draped on the sofa which we’ve covered in a pink sheet to stop our arses from sticking to the leather, watching football- you’ve made such an impact on my life that I could never imagine being away from you. I might have to go to upstairs to sleep before you because you annoy me if I have to hear you breathing… but it’s always wonderful to wake up and know you’re there. And I’m sure that all the whining and random flailing/dancing in the kitchen might just have made you want to slit my throat once or twice, but the fact that you haven’t shows how much you love me. And I love you, I hope you can feel just how much in the very depths of your bones.
And so ladies and gentlemen to the pictures… there aren’t many, but just knowing that he’ll tolerate being in a photo next to my lopsided face just means the world.
Berlin, our first holiday.
It’s good to start off a little risque.
Unbearably blurred, the axe covered in red
This was the day I severed your head
Jeremy Kyle! We’re on freaking TV!
We don’t stand out much, eh, you and me.
Slightly drunk perhaps, sat on the bus
A memorable night, a bit of a fuss.
A loving embrace under the Derbyshire sun
In moments the whole day was done
Your sister’s wedding, a happy time
My hat looks awesome! (that’s the rhyme)
Most awkward thing ever to take on a train
The five hour journey was a bit of a pain.
A wonderful gathering, with those noisy party tubes
My tights under this dress came up to my boobs.
A casual night out in an eyeball dress
But the prettiest thing is your face, I must stress
I look a bit derpy, it is very true
But I am quite ridiculously in love with you.
This says it all, really, there’s so much to fear
I hope we can do this again all next year.
