The Ins and Outs of my Relationship & various other ramblings

I'm a dirty, rotten thief. I steal semi-interesting things from other blogs, just to keep mine alive. Dirty thief bastard. This one is from MissLiv again! It's all about Me & Jace.

1. What are your middle names?
Mine is Jade & his is Ashley (he may possibly kill me for posting that)

2. How long have you been together?
A little over 2 years now
3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Almost 12 months if I remember correctly. We met on a particularly drunken night out so all the details aren't all that clear.
4. Who asked who out?
Jace asked me. He was at work out in woop woop somewhere and I was visiting my dad in Melbourne. He asked me via MSN, beat that Liv. Haha
5. How old are each of you?
I'm 21 and he's 23
6. Did you go to the same school?
Nope, not even close

7. Are you from the same home town?
Nope. Opposite sides of the country

8. Who is the smartest?
In terms of book smarts. Me. I'm a big, giant nerd.
9. Who majored in what?
Neither of us did the uni thing
10. Who is the most sensitive?
*furtive glances*
11. Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Melbourne to visit my dad last year
12. Who has the worst temper?
Yeah me. I'm have several pairs of angry pants
13. How many children do you want?
No clue. Will say how me and my lady parts feel after popping out the first one!
14. Who does the cooking?
*sigh* Me.
15. Who is more social?
To be perfectly honest, we're both kinda social recluses. Somehow that doesn't seem like a proper sentence.
16. Who is the neat freak?
We're both pretty slack most of the time. Once a week or so though I get all Obsessive Compulsive and have to fix EVERYTHING that is even remotely untidy.
17. Who is the most stubborn?
*sigh* again, that would be me. This quiz makes it seem like I have ALL the bad traits!
18. Who wakes up earlier?
It used to always be Jace, but lately I have actually been waking up before him. Of course, I always tend to wake him up almost as soon as my eyes are open!
19. Where was your first date?
To be honest I can't remember where we went on our first "official" date. I remember he took me to dinner at Royal Perth Yacht Club pretty early on
20. Who has the bigger family?
It's probably a pretty close call. He has more people in his immediate family, but my extended family is pretty excessive.

21. Do you get flowers often?
I haven't had any actually. It would be sweet, but I don't hold it against him either, flowers are expensive and he already helps me out a bunch with the horses.
22. How do you spend the holidays?
Generally with one of our families. We tend to alternate.
23. Who is more jealous?
Again, another bad trait that I posess. Yep, I am an insanely jealous person.
24. How long did it take to get serious?
Not really that long after we were "official", because the relationship had been developing well before we were an official couple
25. Who eats more?
Probably him, although it's fairly close.
26. What do you do for a living?
I train horses and he works as a driller's offsider on the mines

27. Who does the laundry?
Me. Bit hard for him to do the laundry when he works away haha
28. Who's better with the computer?
Umm, I'm going to say him. I get pretty lost in the actual computer systems. I know my way around the interwebz but thats about it!
29. Who drives when you are together?
HIM! I don't have my license
30. What is your song?
Guns n Roses - Patience.

With that out of the way, I will begin my ramblings. I had another horse colic 2 nights ago. I hate colic seriously. It scares the living shit out of me. Luckily, I caught Phoenix in the very, very early stages. One of the many good things that come from knowing my horses like the back of my hand. I saw him laying down and knew instantly that something was off. Had the vet out, sedated and drenched him and within 2 hours he was good as new. I seriously hate seeing my animals in pain though. As soon as I knew he was sick the tears started and I only pulled it together long enough to get him through his vet treatment before going in to shock myself! Imagine this beautiful face, looking at you with those big brown eyes, with a "Help me, please Mum, My tummy hurts" face. Tell me you wouldn't cry too.


On a happier note. I bought myself a lunge roller and some side reins to start working on getting some collection out of my beautiful horses. And it works! Yay!! I started using it with Rexy. First picture is how we started -


And this is where we were at after just one session! Hello progress!!


And this is just because I think it's a gorgeous photo.


One of these days I will post a blog that doesn't end up being about my horses! I swear it!
