About being married...

I waited for Louis to finally post up some pictures from our wedding onto his blog to post this up. So... been married for eight days now, and everytime someone asks me about it, I can only say it's great.

Married life isn't about fear and trepidation about the fact you're committed to just one other human being for the rest of your life. It's about joy of belonging to someone.

I've been with Lydia for six years (that's an awful long time, I know) and you know what, it's a changed feeling now. I used to feel very sad everytime the clock strikes eleven and either she has to go home, or I have to go home. You know...like a detached emptiness.

Now, I'm so happy I get the chance to tuck her into bed (she sleeps earlier than me) and pat her hair back so it doesn't land on her face. Married life is sweet. You don't have to say, "Goodbye, goodnight."

So as I'm reflecting on what's changed, I realise, these are the first few steps towards creating a home. A place where we both belong, uniquely. We got the keys to our house just last weekened, and though it's really bare now (and dusty!), we both can't wait to clean up the place, renovate it lightly, and just move in.

This is so exciting.
