It’s Sunday, 2230. Tmrw is the start of a brand new week… time does fly. With a blink of the eye, we’ve been here for 3 weeks, going into 4 weeks. For a merely 3 weeks, we sure did alot to start our life together here in London.
I’ve been asked a few times, how’s married life? My answer is ‘SUPERB!’ … but of course nothing is smooth sailing when it comes to actually ‘staying’ together with someone for the first time. One thing for sure, I’m glad we sort of made an agreement up-front that he will do the cooking majority of the time (ie dinner) since I have no interest in cooking and I will help with the cleaning. But we didnt really discussed how we’re going to split the house chores.
So first weekend comes and we have our first ‘disagreement’ on who should do what. I dont think Dav really agreed to what I proposed. So I sort of ‘give-in’ by agreeing to clean the toilet… (Dav, it’s your turn next week! hehehe)
Dav’s cooking has been superb. My younger sis and her bf was in London for the weekend and we invited them over for dinner and even they said his grilled chicken with Kicap ABC was tasty. I’ve also been watching Nigella express on BBC 2 (Thanks to Catty Pants for pointing out the show) to get some tips on cooking.
To be honest, I’ve never really like Nigella (maybe cos Dav find her HOT). But I have to admit, the recipes she have is really quite easy to cook and it’s ingredients are not hard to get. So I’m even thinking of investing on her ‘Nigella Express’ book. (In case you’re wondering what happened to my Jamie Oliver’s book titled ‘Cook with Jamie’, we didnt bring it to London but it will soon be here after my KL trip in Nov). She even inspired me to cook breakfast for Dav yesterday morning. Nothing special, just toast with jam, scramble eggs and mushroom soup.
Looks like I’ve deviate from the ‘marriage life’ topic… ok back to that. Another thing we had to agree on was who’s going to wash and iron the clothes. We never really agree on the washing bit, but we agreed that we will only iron our own clothes… hehehe which is great. On washing the clothes, I’ve been the one initiating it and sometimes Dav would help with hanging. We have a washer/dryer but am trying not to use the dryer to save electricity.
Thats about all for now. Here’s a pic of us in our new home.
