My last post for the day, I promise.
Am sitting here sipping a beverage and watching great Japanese variety comedy TV at its best. Do love it. Hub has made appologies throughout the day - must have been thrown by my impulsive 'you might be without your silly nagging wife if you keep this shite up' comment - made this morning.
Shou and Marina were both asleep by ten past seven - although heared big crash from Shou's room half an hour later. He had been sleeping on pile of pillows and rolled off and no doubt landed with his big head first on the floor. Managed to get to him and pat him off to sleep again before he woke up completely. Quite amazing really as sounded very sore.
I read another blog earlier tonight that mentioned my blog briefly. Well, didn't say gaijinwife but considering was about a woman married to a Japanese man who had fight this morning as husband, who went to toilet five times, wouldn't keep eye on kids while wife made intricate Japanese lunch box.... one can only presume was me :)
Was a real eye opener in that made me realise that everyone else who reads my blog must think am complaining silly woman, married to silly Japanese husband. And well, I guess I am, but for the record...
I do complain.
I can be silly.
Quite frequently infact.
I am married.
Husband is Japanese.
He can be silly too.
Quite frequently infact.
But, I do love thy husband - and not because I feel I should under the eyes of god. Am not religious - and if was would have to spend half life in confession confessing my bloody sins and bad thoughts - which would be hard in Kunimi as no church. Granny K's brother is priest though so maybe he would do - but then wouldn't be able to confess much.
Husband is generally, most of the time, a very good hub and father. Shou and Marina think he is great and for the most part I do too. He does however, drive me to insanity - but that again is in part due to my personality as well. Short tempered and ready to voice opinion at drop of hat - before even had good amount of time to think about whether is good opinion or not.
Granny K is someone I would rather not be living with - not because she is Granny K but because I don't like the whole sharing our married house with another adult - especially a woman who only wants the best for her son. She does however look after the kids a lot and doesn't dish out vitamin pills, sports drinks, nail clippers and lighters on a daily basis.
I started blogging initially so that friends and family could keep up with our goings on - my friends and family have all met hub and know what he is like, and therefore to take a lot of what I write with a grain of salt.
I have decided though to write one positive thing per blog - about hub, and if having good day about Granny K too. (bloody hell)
Hub - ate all his lunch box for dinner - despite fact was meant for lunch and had been sitting on bench all day. Good man. He also played with Shou all afternoon - as in took him away from the house.
Realized have just written things a normal man would be expected to do anyway. hmmm, hub gave me random hugs through out the day. Nope, that should be expected too. He bought me big bunch of flowers. Ok, so that's a lie. clutching at straws here.
Granny K - has been very nice to me all day - but probably cause thinks, after this mornings antics, that I was close to signing THE papers.
Off for bath and early night to reflect on nice life.
