@SirNoid ♡ @NocturnalWenchy 


Who is older?

@SirNoid is older as girls have started calling him “Oom“.  I’m #14forever. You do the math. ♡

How long have you been together? 
Since 12th of January 2008.

Who is the most sensitive? 
I am hyper sensitive and hurt emotionally and physically very easily. I laugh as loudly as I cry.

@SirNoid cries at Disney movies and adverts. I’m not sure if that means he is sensitive or appreciate the performing arts.

Where do you eat out most as a couple? 
Wherever @SirNoid gets invited to join me at a #foodie event, we dining out as a couple! ♡ (Can you feel the lack of budget tonight…? )

@SirNoid has become a #foodie in his own right, especially craft beer. Proud of him

Who has the quick temper? 
Coming from an Italian/ Portuguese background I have a red, hot temper. There is a reason I decided never to own a gun. I would take you out. I would not feel bad.  You clearly needed to go. I learned that lesson during my first marriage.

@SirNoid may have been born in Welkom but his temper matches mine.

Who is more social? 
I’m exceptionally more social the older I get… I care less and less how others feel about me,  which is scary and I started off on a rather low scale.

@SirNoid…  I think depends on the company.

Who is the most stubborn? 
I’m actually not sure. Imagine we had a child!

Who wakes up earlier? 
We both wake up when @SirNoid ‘s alarm goes off.

Do you get flowers often? 
No

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong? 
Me.  @SirNoid is never wrong.

Who has the craziest ex’s? 
There has been some hectic times but thankfully normality has settled.

Who wears the pants in your relationship? 
@SirNoid 

Who cries more? 
Me.  I am a dramatic art. Dammit.

Who said “I love you” first? 
@SirNoid

Who is the better cook? 
@SirNoid

Who is more messy? 
I am.

Who’s the best driver? 
Me  when @SirNoid is not in the car. (ha ha😵!)

Who makes the Coffee / Tea? 
I make coffee ☕  in the morning and at night. Something has to be an apology for my crappy cooking right?

BTW, what coffee do YOU buy? 

… against the spirit 

​”I want to live among people who are conscious that we live in a war. A war against life, against the spirit. 

People who don’t pretend to be struggling when it is obvious that what they are doing is turning a battlefield into a garden.

I want to live among people who don’t look down at their feet, or won’t look you in the eyes when you speak of struggle or insurrection, because In their heart they know they have surrendered, and because—maybe, just maybe—they never really hated the system. Among people who have not been bought, who did not take the pills they were offered, because they preferred to struggle with their feeling of pathologized anxiety than to live in the dead zone. People who don’t pretend to be struggling when it is obvious that what they are doing is turning a battlefield into a garden. I want to be in a place where the war is admissible.”

oh #HelloBlackFriday 

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Happy Thanksgiving to all,  but especially to my friends and family living in the United States which is where this tradition was born.

Vicky and I met at school and have been friends since I was 12. Vix came to live with us a year or so later, and it was tremendous having my best friend become my sister! It has been a gift of friendship, love, support, loyalty, forgiveness, compromise, humour, affection, devotion that keeps on giving, for over 30 years. I love Vicky an intense amount.

Vicky and her husband, Russ and my gorgeous niece, Alex and nephew, Drew became proper America citizens last year. They residential on Marco Island in Florida and love the sea and sailing lifestyle.

Russ and Vicky with Drew and Alex.

This was the first election they could vote (ha ha ha!!), today is their first Thanksgiving as America citizens … and their first, smack people out the way #HelloBlackFriday as proper Americans tomorrow.😆

I asked Vicky who has been living  in the land of the free, and going out on #HelloBlackFriday, which appears like where the brave comes in, to tell me more about what #HelloBlackFriday is really like.

Ok Black Friday! You can go line up at most shops from late on Thursday night – Thanksgiving until the shops open on Friday and the shops open at 1:00am in the morning but you would be able to get all sorts of stuff at really special prices!

People has been trampled trying to get into Walmart and now they issue tickets and have a limited amount of the items for sale in the stores…. like you can buy a 60″ TV for a tiny amount but there is only 5 in the store.

Also what is happening, is more and more shops have started offering  sales online as well as have there specials start early e.g. from today (Thursday).

But then if you think you have special deals on Friday….  they also have Cyber Monday! 😀 Bigger and better!

Anyway living here, I have been keeping off buying anything because everything goes on sale on Friday. I have 25 items in my basket for Amazon that I will only buy on Friday, and it’s the best time to buy Christmas gifts!

He traveled very far, over land and sea…

A year later. The more things change, the more they stay the same. I love you Kev. I am thankful you work so hard to secure your future and study at night to achieve. All funded by yourself. I’m proud of all you have accomplished. When the day arrives for you to leave and see the world, I cannot imagine I will let you go silently into the “night”.

I wish you enough,

The Nocturnal Wenchy

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

I wanted this child so very much. I prayed him down from heaven, including asking God that please,  I do not want a boy with red hair! Have mercy. I never found out the gender,  but I was having a boy. My boy.

I wanted to give him the world but my ruby slippers were dusty and instead, life dished us a bone-crushing of a white picket fence.

My Kev was there for every happy and very sad… Every sunshine and every rain,  every peanut butter sandwich and everyone with cheese.  I cringe with heartache when he casually shares what he remembers. I wish he didn’t.

Not long ago I was once again apologising for something I felt I could have done better in his life.  He looked at me with empathy (which he reserves for few, mind you) and said :
