"To disagree, one doesn't have to be disagreeable."

Myself and Mrs M don't argue, that's not to say we don't have raised voices during disagreements but we never fall out. The worst that happens is we might disagree on something have a mini rant and then a short quiet cooling off period before one of us starts giggling and then its all forgotten about. There's no need to take life so seriously plus i really value our relationship and would never want it in a situation where we resent each other and don't want to be in the same room. I have been known from time to time to deactivate a ticking time bomb of frustration with a bit of comedy gold.

Today's rant, like many from Mrs M was about the fact there is limited storage in our kitchen which means lots of things don't have a home. yes i know it sounds crazy but it really pushes her over the edge. It all stems from frustration and the fact that she cant just take things as what they are. I must hear 'I want a dishwasher' about ten times a week even though she knows that there's no space because we have the biggest fridge I've ever seen and an excessive sized cooker to match.

As our conversation got a little more heated I did my usual and I began to sarcastically wind her up (it's what I do). Frustrated by my sarcy comments she retaliated by giving me the finger, problem was she stuck her index finger up turning it into a much more comical gesture. Well that just gave me more ammo so we continued to disagree. It won't mean anything to anyone reading this but the disagreement came to an end because of a Pritt Stick. The whole thing made me think of a conversation we had had early in our relationship and a quick sketch I had done in a sketchbook. (I'm glad i found the sketchbook and will write a post about it next).

Before I knew it Mrs M was giggling uncontrollably and chasing me round the house, then we had a wrestle, did a lot more laughing and had a cuddle. When your in a relationship your bound to have disagreements it's inevitable, life would be boring if you agreed on everything. It's how you deal with these situations that is important. I would never take our relationship for granted, its the first great relationship i have been in and i am embracing it fully. I guess it all comes down to respect.

I really wanted a dishwasher too for ages. Now we got one we hardly ever use it! We don't like to ever end the day on an arguement either. x
