New Perspective

So S and I have been married for almost 6 months now. It has gone super fast!!!

I've learnt that I hate cooking and cleaning up, slow cookers were made just for people like me. I've become very conscious of the cleanliness of the house, but really, only when people come over do I do an actual clean. Oh and I hate doing washing, hanging it out, bringing it in, and this is usually as far as I get, S comes home and doesn't understand why I can't do the last part and fold it and put it away. So I've started folding, but I haven't put any of it away, which means there is little piles of folded clothes around the house :)

It's safe to say I am not the steadfast housewife, and don't think it's going to change any time soon.

One things that been the most drastic change since moving out of home and being married isn't the house cleaning, or cooking, both of which I did back at home anyway, but it's getting up early!!!

Nine would be early for me, and ten was my regular get up time. 

Now, the regular time I get up is 730. 630 if I have an eight o'clock class, but more often then not 730, latest is eight.

I know, you say, how crazy, you say, she gets up at 730, doesn't have kids, doesn't need to work (the paid kind of work) but she still gets up at 730. Don't worry, I say that to myself as well.

The reason for this change is that S leaves for work about 7:15, and he sets his alarm for six, he nice and lets me sleep till about seven then he must think that that's a good time to get up, so he comes in and asks if I'm going to make his lunch, and begs me to get out of bed.

I tell him to turn the heater on and all is good! (Just fyi, I don't make his lunch, and wont be until I have to make the kids lunch for school, another 15 years away).

That is the most drastic change for me, some of you may be early morning people and think its normal to get out of bed at 630 every morning, and all the mothers are probably thinking 730! Thats a sleep in. But if you know me in real life, this is getting up early.

As a teenagers I never even knew what saturday morning was, I never saw it!

Well thats it for today, just a little change but a big change in my life. May think of some other things to share about how married life has changed me and some more uni updates, which is going really well. I'm so happy with my results, bar one essay, but like my teacher said, it's a learning curve and I can only get better from here on out!!!

I started out linking with blog everyday in may (link in my side bar) which has some prompts, this one is to share a few links to some olds posts, to I'm going to link my most viewed post and my favourite post, hope you enjoy.

Oh and how can I forget the fantastic Jess over at Essentially Jess for I Blog On Tuesdays!

  1. Oh I hate mornings, I would gladly sleep in until 10am every day, unfortunately Miss 4 has a different idea. The housekeeping comes eventually. Congrats on 6 months marriage.

  2. Kate, Dave and I have had our place for almost 6 years and I still haven't figured out how to be a good housewife! The fact that I've managed to keep the house clean for the last 3 days is a victory! Helps we have been out for half that time. And I think the main reason it got so clean in the first place is the whole 'nesting' thing, driving me to clean!

    As for putting away clothes and getting up early when I don't have. Never gonna happen! Our clean washing just lives in a pile on a spare lounge now and Dave and I let each other sleep-in whenever we can, sure you get more day when you get up early but you also get less night because you're exhausted by the early start!

  3. Congratulations on the marriage milestone. I have always struggled with washing as well. When I was 19 I had enough clothes to go a whole month without washing - underwear and all - needless to say washing day was massive when it finally arrived. Mind you where we lived had four machines so we could get through it quicker.

  4. Congratulations! I have always struggled with washing too! Piles of it every week. I hate folding the clothes. I suppose its worse when you have 2 kids as well to add to the pile!
    Love your post.

  5. I'll share a secret with you. A and I have been together for 27 years and married for 26 yrs this year. I don't make his lunch ! In fact, from when K went to highschool, I don't make anyone's lunch - they are both old enough to make their own !!
    One of K's chores is folding and putting washing away - which she does after some nagging so we often have to go through two wash baskets of folded washing to find what we want.
    I think everyone has their own time of the day - I tend to stay up late at night but often can't sleep in, even if I didn't have to get up for work. In the end I think it is all good - if you had small children who were being neglected because you were sleeping, I would be worried but as long as you only have yourself to look out for - enjoy !!!
    K (21yo) will sleep most of the morning away if she doesn't have to go to work !!
    Have the best day !

  6. I'm not a morning person at all! i have to get up before 7 and it still breaks me, so i feel your pain!!

  7. I'm not a morning person either. Oh washing....my nemesis. I make sure to do it on a Sunday afternoon when both the boyfriend and I are home, that way he has to help me ;)
