The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It’s full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing
But I I love it when you read to me
And you You can read me anything
This Sunday marks 4 years since the hubby and I went on our first date some 11 years after we first met. This Sunday also marks 3 years since we got engaged. I know I hear the groans already trust me when I say this will not be one of those overly flowery my husband is awesome posts. He is and I could write that but I think if I have learnt anything from the first 18 months of marriage it’s that sometimes the most romantic things that a man can do are the things that don’t feature in a romantic comedy.
My leg has been horrendous and painful since December last year and I seriously struggled to do anything around the house. Chris who previously could barely make toast stepped up and started cooking every night and it was incredible. I would sit on a chair and step by step him through things. He is quite the chef now and still makes me feel like I am the worlds most amazing wife when I cook or bake.
But my most favourite non romantic comedy moment happened just yesterday. To understand the significance I should give a slight back story. Our first Christmas together I got the worlds worst food poisoning and spent the whole of boxing day in the bathroom being sick and since the bathroom wall was connected to our bedroom Mr Wonderful spent the day playing Playstation and calling through the wall “Are you ok?”.
Yesterday I had a massive blood test done like 14 vials of blood massive- fasting of course. By the time we got home and I got out of the car I was so woozy I was walking like drunk Rach, drunk Rach who couldn’t keep anything down. There I was in that dignified position bent over at the waist and face in the toilet bowl and there he was rubbing my back.
That ladies is true romance and I am so damn lucky. Hope this Tuesday finds you happy and healthy and let me know- What’s your idea of unconventional romance?
The book of love has music in it
In fact that’s where music comes from
Some of it’s just transcendental
Some of it’s just really dumb
But I I love it when you sing to me
And you You can sing me anything
