I've been with my boyfriend now for nearly three years.
I never thought we would end up being as serious as we are but I'm so so happy with my Gavin :)
We met at work, Waitrose, back in 2007 but I was with my ex still. At the end of '07 I split with the ex, couple of months later Gavin and I get messaging on facebook. He worked on the meat and fish counter and I worked on the deli...so I guess you could say we fell for each other over a fillet of fish, he taught me how to do it :P
After splitting with the ex I went to a party with the girls and ended up leaving early. At home on msn I was talking to his best friend (now engaged to his sister) who gave me his number, thus begun the set up of a date the next day.
After that we saw each other everyday and became inseparable.
We've just bought a flat together and are slowly doing it up.
I've had long-term relationships in the past but I know now that he's the one...
Enough of the gushy stuff...here's some photos in as good as chronological order as I could manage.
This photo was taken on one of the first nights out we had together back in Feb 2008
I was rocking the black hair so I could use someone else's ID...
And another early photo fro nights out, the brown hair looked much better :)
I seem to remember this night really clearly, he was late coming to see me and I got really annoyed...but he took me out for dinner so it was alright
Gavin said I should wear blue eyeshadow here...really doesn't suit me!
April 2008 we went on a ship launch for a Royal Caribbean cruise ship
An amazing night
Random trip to the beach :)

This was the Christmas when I decided to lose weight after seeing the photos...
