10 Reasons I Love You [Happy Birthday Jake!]

A few years back, in 2012 to be exact, I wrote one of the soppiest posts I ever have and ever thought I would. 10 Things I Love About You paid love and respect to my partner of 8 months at the time. 2 years and 10 months later I thought it time to do an 'update' of sorts to wish my Prince a happy 27th birthday!




Like Woody and Buzz, we're best friends.
Neither of us have that many friends, but I don't think it really matters. We're into the same things (minus Disney you pain in the bum) and so we have a good time together no matter what we're doing. We get out for walks and days together rarely, but when we can and even just sitting in the living room, me on the laptop and you on the Xbox I still wouldn't prefer to be in anybody elses company. Perhaps minus when you're playing Fifa though... ;)


You deface my notes and leave your own 'important' ones.
Like every nagging female I leave you notes to make sure you do the 'jobs' I need you to do. Not only do you complete them but you 'edit' them to say funny things and when you leave your own notes the are hilariously short in comparison. 'Take Squid out freezer' for example! haha


Your accent has developed some North East twangs!
Maybe no 'wey aye man's but you for sure come out with words that would never of done before living in Northumberland. You always seem to think I'm making fun of your Bristolian/North Eastern mash ups, but really I just think it's canny.


You're such a giant baby when you're tired.
For real. It's annoying sometimes, but it's always so funny how you go on as a (now) 27 year old man, just because you're tired. It makes me smile that you need me.


The Beard.



I'm 'too soft' with Baker but you hold him like a baby and play cute.
How many times have you given me wrong for lifting up the dog and pampering him then you lay on the sofa hugging in with him, while he lays like a baby licking your nose? Point made.


That you stopped smoking for me.
As much as it should have been for yourself, I will always appreciate you switching to vaping 'for me' as you say. It's always a worry losing a loved one prematurely so having that extra worry, cost, etc away from us now is great. That you wouldn't of done it had it not been for my nagging makes me happy. (And prove that nagging works :P)


You help me with blog stuff.
You might not be my biggest fan and think that I take all this way too seriously, but you're perfect at giving constructive criticism without either hurting my feelings or not saying enough in fear of hurting my feelings. Of late you've had more input too, giving ideas and judging my giveaway like a boss!


Like a true man, you are the breadmaker and take care of us.

It's no secret we've had a tough time money wise since we started out. I've been the worker, we've both worked part time and now you're the one working full time to bring back the bacon (not literally, we're not that rich haha).
I have always loved and will always love the way we work our life, even if others don't understand it. The old fashioned way feels like the best way - I'm glad you agree :P


If you were anymore laid back you'd be horizontal!
With me being such an uptight worry wort, your constant 'don't worry' motto really helps even things out. The ying to my yang.



Love you poo face.
