Like Kyla and Amber, I moved in with T at a really young age. One of the reasons for that was getting hassle from housemates (may sound silly, but if you’ve been there you know what it’s like) but I think we would have done so sooner or later. And I’ve never looked back – I mean, he’s a mega cook, is handy around the house (and to a lesser extent, the car), drives, and lets me warm my cold feet on him.
The one drawback is that it’s so easy to retreat into ourselves – we both enjoy the comforts of home and when faced with the choice of getting dressed and going out vs lounging around in PJs, well, it’s a tough one. And our flatmates aren’t super social themselves (although for some reason, they do like to hit town on a Thursday night – god only knows why. T sometimes goes with them, but Thursday is when I put together the weekly newsletter for my side job, which chews up three to four hours.)
So my resolution is for us to get out and do one thing every weekend: be it rockclimbing, bowling, a picnic, tandem biking, swimming or just a nice meal out. The cheaper the better, like driving to Cornwall Park and letting him loose on all the fitness bars. And the museum is promoting free entry for the summer, so that’s next on our list!
