Me and You


'Me and you, 
Me and you.
Last time we spoke i thought we were through. 
I found a map,
I found a map,
I found a map, 
I found a map. 
And now i know the way you can just go 
Back, back, back, back.
Back, back, back, back.

Help yourself out, shoot history in the mouth,
It's all that's left to do.
Look me up in some phonebook
Under, Me and You.'

Slow Club - Me and You

When Tom and I first met I was not supposed to be starting out in a relationship with anyone. I was supposed to be discovering what it was like to be single, something I hadn't been since I was 17 and at 22 felt like it was the right time to be. My friends told me 'do not get into another relationship' and 'spend a least a year learning what it's like to be by yourself'. I thought this was probably the sort of thing that would be good for 22 year old me. When we met I had a few weeks left in Bristol before I moved in with my friend in Newcastle and I under no circumstance should fall for someone in these in-between weeks..

So although we both knew we really liked each other I still went ahead and moved. 

It was a weird few weeks, full of great times with good friends but also with a sense that I wasn't in the right place. Tom would write me letters (real actual letters with sweet gifts inside them like stickers and home made cards) and we would talk on the phone all the time. One day a few weeks after I had been there I was looking for jobs at the library computer and I got a message from him with a link to this Slow Club song. Actually it was a link to video on YouTube and as I was in the library I couldn't listen to it I did however google the lyrics.

Six weeks after I left I returned to Bristol and we've been together for almost six years now. 
And married for one month. 

This picture was taken on our honeymoon (the only picture we are both in, I need to get better at using the self timer on my camera!).
