Big News in TShirtsVille



Sooo, I am going to be moving in with TShirtsLongTrousers next week... Aaargh! We've been planning it a while but we've finally put down the deposit and first month's rent so it's really happening. I've never lived with a boyfriend before (no one has ever put up with me long enough for us to get to that stage) so it's a huge deal for me.

I am SO excited. We have been going out about six months (not too long I know, but we were friends for a year before that) and we've been spending literally every weekend together and it's been kind of a slog going to and fro. I love spending time with him, he makes my bad days better and my good days GREAT, and honestly that's all I've ever wanted in a relationship.

A nice anecdote - I phoned my nana and my gran to tell them. They were both very happy. My nana (who does tend to go off on tangents) said not to tell my great-auntie - I said why? - she jokingly said, "because you should be MARRIED!" To which I said "I'd rather live with them first to see how much we annoy each other!" She cackled a lot and then said "you know me, I've never been one for moralising. If you're happy that's all that matters. You could phone me up and tell me you were having a sex change and I'd just say oh, okay! It wouldn't bother me! People go on about how being gay is wrong and stuff like that but honestly it doesn't matter, if you're a good person and you treat people well, I don't care!"

My nana is 70, by the way. She rocks!

I'm not gonna lie - I'm slightly nervous. We both live alone right now, and I know there will be some teething problems most likely. Luckily, we have a dishwasher (we both HATE washing dishes!) and I've spent long periods of time at his before and felt very comfortable, so I'm sure we can iron out any problems.

It's a perfect flat. It's far enough out of London to be affordable, but close enough that I can still get to work. It's where his family are and is accessible for my family, too (I live across the country from them). And the town has everything we need socially - a cinema, restaurants, pubs, a lovely park. The flat itself is gorgeous, too - all sleek and modern and new. When we saw it advertised, it said "Suitable for a professional couple" and I turned to him and said "WOW! We're a professional couple! We could totally get this place!" It also has room for my family to stay. I'm so happy!

      There are some versions of the bible that clean up the story of Jacob and Joseph, so that the reader is missing something. Joseph wasn't the arbitrary favorite. He was one of the only biological children of Jacob and Rachel. His brothers who plotted against him were all half brothers. Jacob wanted to marry Rachel, but was tricked into marrying her older sister Leah. The Lord made Leah very fertile to make up for it. Rachel was almost barren until Joseph. (In the meantime, Rachel and Leah both sent their maid servants to have children by Jacob.) Jacob and Rachel were eventually able to have 2 biological children: Joseph and later, Benjamin. Benjamin was too young and not apart of selling Joseph into Egypt. Some versions clean up the story to just say that Rachel and Leah are the bio-moms of all the kids and Joseph just happens to be the favorite, but this is incorrect. 

      Jacob's father-in-law arguably started the problem when he tricked Jacob into marrying the wrong sister. 

      They really don't do Biblical marriage like they used to.

      I think the best part of Gary's retelling is struggling to remember any of the names or relationships, that's what people look for in a preacher. Although I can see all the women in the story going through all the kids names until they hit the right one!

      Not exactly real life, but there's a woman I followed off/on for a long time on-line. She has always admired fundies like the ones we follow here. She was single for a while, but in her late 20s/ early 30s she met a widower with slightly larger than average family. He's fundie and now she's a fundie homeschooling stepmother. They also had a baby together. Now she's set up an account to be social-media homeschooling Quiverfull SAHM.  Because of the stepkids, they have biggish family (not Duggar big, but bigger than average.) She seemed like a sweet person, but this seems like a risky move for many reasons.

      Wow! That’s a massive house. They certainly don’t seem like they want a herd of children - I’d guess one or two more, if any. I wonder what they’ll do with all that space? 

      Why can't I get that kind of deal?! I have a career  🤣 ... and ethics, a conscious, morals, work ethic... that tracks 🤨
