I’ve been with my man for 27 years and married to him for 24. I worked with his older brother in a Partnership Law firm which is how I met him. It’s ironic because I worked on the conveyancing for his house and then I ended up marrying him and living in it. Life is weird and wonderful.
Partnerships come in all shapes and sizes but the most important one is often with the person we spend our lives with. In all the years we’ve been together our partnership has been a solid one, but I have to admit, like all relationships, we’ve had our testing times.
We’ve traveled to so many places together. And inevitably along the way we’ve got lost.
Sometimes he drives me nuts, when we can’t agree. But we generally work things out. That’s the beauty of being with a partner for a long time. Compromise.
I can also be a bit too snap-happy. And I often wonder whether I should just enjoy the moment more and let go of the camera or phone. But I love taking photos and creating memories. It’s fun being able to look back at our silly moments.
And we have many of them.
Whether it’s jumping in at the deep end or trying something new, life’s all about taking risks and having courage. And as partners we always back each other up.
When times are hard he’s there for me. He’s been my rock this year and keeps me grounded. Plus he makes me laugh, which is one of the things I love most about him.
Mind you, there are times when I ignore his advice.
Sometimes I engross myself into other worlds, like a good book or WordPress, and guilt creeps in because of the time that I spend on it.
But he’s becoming more understanding as he sees how important it is to me.
A treat helps. Neither of us can resist our sweet indulgences … coffee, chocolate, red wine. And when two of us share the same wicked treats life is always better!
Harry and Chuckles think so too. They’ll do anything for some attention … and a treat.
Yep, we’re definitely partners in crime.
The ultimate crime was when he stole my heart. And that happened a long time ago so I guess it’s a life sentence. One I’ll happily commit to.
At the end of the day, where ever we are, so long as he’s by my side the world is right.
Wishing you all happiness, love, laughter and peace with the ones that you love, whether you have a family, a partner or a dog.
No man is an island, partners are for life.
