Four Years and Counting

Che and me on 24th May 2014 😀

Che and I completed four years of marriage last Saturday. We’ve been together 6 years now and I can’t believe it, someday’s it feels like it all happened yesterday and someday’s, like it’s been eternity. But all said and done my last six years have been tremendous fun.

Cuckoo came into our lives about six months before we formalised things and Senti soon after her. And the two of them brought so much with them – routine, discipline, processes and schedules, all enveloped in love. They gave Che and me, the wanderer spirits that we are, a grounding.

Oh, and anyone who has met Cuckoo and Senti will tell you that they are fun beings. Life just becomes fun and funny sometimes with them around. And if that fun wasn’t enough over the years three more joined the fun panel.

The dogs have been around so long that sometimes I feel we hardly travel but in the last six years Che and I have traveled a fair bit together. We’ve travelled by bike, bus, train and plane across India. We’ve even managed to do that in Thailand. And separately we’ve traveled a lot too, Che maybe much more than me but then he travels on work and I on holiday. 😀

On the Move, In the Train

Che quit his corporate job 20 days before we got married, what that means is that we have actually spent most of four years together. As freelancers both of us work from home, we are around each other almost 24/7. And how that makes the fireworks fly. We fight, oh man do we fight. I think our neighbours and the dogs will attest to that and yet I enjoy being around him, the house feels empty when he’s not around (even with 5 dogs).

Che is a fun guy, he will find things to do on a dull day, he will make the mundane, super cool. He will find that must watch movie, he’ll give you the scoop in news, he introduces me to music I hadn’t paid attention to before, he’ll have the latest Sherlock Holmes ready to watch almost as soon as it airs in UK, he’ll suggest scrabble on a rainy day, he makes even a trip to the grocery store an adventure and above all else he talks books.

Che also makes me look good in pictures 🙂

There have been times when people have asked me why I love Che and I’m tongue tied. [Not so tongue tied when I have to list what I don’t like 😀 ] But the above’s why I love him, it’s difficult to explain why in words. 😛

On our anniversary we had a very ‘Che day’, we celebrated. Che made this lovely Aloo, Mutton Aur Mutter Curry for our special anniversary lunch while I made the papads to go with it. 😀 We caught up with a couple of old friends after ages and went out with them to dinner. And this was no usual dinner, we started with Davangere Benne Dosa’s at DVG Road before heading to V.V.Puram Food Street for some sinful obuttu and Bowring badam kulfi. And all of it wrapped up nicely with a visit from my brother just before the day completed at twelve. We had a full, fun, day.

And to complete this post, here are some quotes I found that are apt to us…
You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore… but let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
– Kahlil Gibran

To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the wedding cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.
– Ogden Nash

A married couple are well suited when both partners usually feel the need for a quarrel at the same time.
– Jean Rostand

Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age — as your beauty fades, so will his eyesight.
– Phyllis Diller
