We have fun

When we agree that men and women don't understand each other it paves the way for us to live and love together. I don't try to understand women. I either do or don't but either way I don't make a big deal about it. I've had many discussion about this with Nathalie. Why do women love shopping and why do men love sports? I have to say most of these discussion were started by her.

Anyways.. this evening we were out for dinner and at the table next to us sat a woman wearing a white blouse. Because of a 'strategically' placed lamp the outline of her breasts was clearly visible. Nath saw me looking and told me she knew what I was thinking. "Go ahead, guess!" was my reply and she started to tell me I was fantasizing about the woman's breasts and comparing them to hers. I almost spilled my wine laughing.
"Hun, you're right. When you would line up 100 men, accepting 1 in 5 is gay, that 75 of them would do that but I hadn't come to that point,...yet. I was wondering why boys are so much more obsessed with boobies then girls are. I mean we are both breastfed yet I was and am fascinated by them and you notice them but nothing more then that.
I'm not talking about the present where we are 40 years old and I only see them every now and then and you see them everyday but I'm talking about the teenage years. Is it genetically implanted? Oh, and thank you for the question. Now I'm comparing them."

While covering hers she could only let out a sigh.

Oh the fun we have hehe.

Yes, I like to be in control

I've mentioned it before. I'm easy going as long as most goes like I prefer or advice. So you can imagination my feelings once I learned that I need to do the whole mortgage and insurance application for my new home all over again. I pointed the mistake out at the time and asked if that would be a problem. No, they said as long as we both signed off on the correction all would be fine. Of course I have never in my life signed a contract before and run in to this *sigh*

Ah well what is a week and a halve compared to a lifetime. Still annoying though ;-)

Bought it

My search for a new home has ended. I finally found a place in a good neighborhood, not too big, not too expensive and where I can see myself live for a few decades. I won't say I will but I think you need to take that into account.

The more I think about what 'old' stuff I want to take with me and what will to be thrown away (don't worry some is still good enough to give to a second hand shop) the less is actually going to be with me in my new house.

At the moment going with me are: Clothes, Kitchen gear, Computer and my books, Perhaps I will take part of my book case. That leaves me to go new on Bed, couches, dinner table and seats, coffee table, TV-set and lots of little stuff. I'm trying to find the style I want but luckily I have a couple of weeks before the actual transaction of the apartment and a few weeks then before I actually want to move in.

Maybe you can call this a fresh start, some, jokingly, mentioned a midlife crisis but mainly I see it as an opportunity to create the place I want to live in.

More later.
