Team work makes the dream work

I am still being asked regularly how married life is, and still I have no update. I really wish I could say there had been some groundbreaking alteration to our day-to-day lives, but there really hasn't.

It just feels exactly the same.

Of course, my name change is probably the biggest thing. And what a ball ache that is.

Our original marriage certificate had to be posted to the DVLA in order for me to change my name on my driving license and I have had constant anxiety since the second the woman in the Post Office casually tossed it into the pile to be posted. That was 11 days ago now, I'm praying it comes home soon.

I hate the responsibility of it all, though. I am so worried incase I majorly muck something up.

Changing my name with HMRC was actually the easiest, as I did it all online, but I was terrified incase I clicked the wrong box somewhere along the line.

I wish everything was as easy to update as my Morrisons card and my Boots advantage card!

Other than my post coming through the door under a mixture of names, reminding me daily I still have so many things to change, there really is no difference to the way we live.

Tom still poos with the door open (maybe now I've put it on the internet he'll finally stop doing it!); we still sit and watch trashy TV at night time (currently obsessing over Love Island once again); and I still moan about the Xbox and fart like a trooper.

Before we got married, Tom kept saying "it'll all change once we're husband and wife".

I asked him why, reminding him that everything was perfect as it was. Us getting married simply cemented our commitment to each other, our future together, gave us both a new ring to wear, and saw me change my name. It's a promise, a vow, and a lifetime of love, laughter and memories. Always having each other's back and supporting each other through the rough and the smooth.

We're still goofy, we still disagree on things, I still cook, Tom still washes up - life is as it was before.


But would we really want it any other way?

It worked for us before 6th May, it works for us now, and it'll work for us beyond. We have our own little way of doing things, our own routine, and our own system. 

Tom hoovers, cuts the grass and puts the bins out. I clean the kitchen, sort the food shopping and keep everywhere tidy. 

We're a team - the same team before we were husband and wife, the same team after.

The lyrics to our first dance song summed us as a couple, our marriage, and our life together up perfectly.

Tell me, tell me that you want me
And I'll be yours completely, for better or for worse

I know, we'll have our disagreements
Be fighting for no reason
I wouldn't change it for the world

Cos I knew, the first day that I met you
I was never gonna let you, let you slip away

And I still remember feeling nervous
Trying to find the words to
Get you here today

You make my heart feel like it's summer
When the rain is pouring down
You make my whole world feel so right, when it's wrong
That's how I know you are the one
That's why I know you are the one

Life, it's easy to be scared of
But with you I am prepared for, what is yet to come

Cos our two hearts will make it easy
Joining up the pieces, together making one

You make my heart feel like it's summer
When the rain is pouring down
You make my whole world feel so right, when it's wrong
That's how I know you are the one
That's why I know you are the one

When we are together you make me feel like my mind is free and dreams are reachable
You know I never ever believed in love, I believed one day that you would come along
And free me

You make my heart feel like it's summer
When the rain is pouring down
You make my whole world feel so right, when it's wrong
That's how I know you are the one
That's why I know you are the one
That's why I know you are the one
That's how I know you are the one
