When we first were married, we lived in an apartment for about a year. The furniture we had put together during our time together up to the point of moving into the flat was a mishmash of various pieces, none of which matched. For example, we had an old 2 seater sofa that had 2 cushions that belonged to something else, two armchairs, neither of which matched, a coffee table that doubled as a chess board, a kitchen table made of laminex and the three chairs we had scrounged, also none of which matched. But when you are first married, the furniture doesn’t play a huge part in your daily life and the friends that came around for drinks or a meal seem to understand that it’s a marital phase that we all go through.

Sometimes, escaping the capital after a hard day of work is the best way of keeping up a good quality of life. Living in London most definitely has its advantages, from being close to some of the world’s most iconic architecture, to seeing incredible concerts and immersing yourself in the ‘pop-up’ culture that has become so popular in East London.

It was just a casual Sunday afternoon BBQ in the backyard with our neighbours and friends from my school days. Gloria and I went to primary and high school together and have stayed close friends for at least 20 years. Her husband Steven had left his job with the government about 6 years ago to start his own business. I think it was a drop shipping warehouse or something like that. Gloria worked in the enterprise as well. They had a son and a daughter who were almost the same age as our two, so they shared a lot of interests with music and movies as well as school subjects.

I don’t know how many of you out there reading this can understand just how filled a day can be with looking after a family. Honestly, it’s mind-blowing at times, to say the least. If you look at a typical day, not a weekend, you have meals to prepare, starting with breakfast, kids and husband to get off to school and work, regardless of age. That comment includes the husband, by the way! Then the daily chores which, if you have a day off, pile up to veritable mountains. Washing, cleaning, shopping, cooking and planning. Can anybody find a moment in there for a bit of self-time? What if you have a hobby? Bad luck, right. (more…)
