About Fi Series – “I Married My Best Friend”

“I’m married to my best friend Ewan. We have 2 cats & 1 dog & a bright yellow VW campervan that brings me immense joy!”
.
I met Ewan in July 2008 while I was doing my PhD at the University of Dundee.
.
I’d applied for a part time IT job to help fund my studies, which was ridiculous because I knew NOTHING about anything remotely IT related.
.
By some miracle (I think they were desperate) I got the job on the condition I had some training. Ewan was my trainer 🤣 Although he will tell you I spent the whole session looking at Facebook and not listening…as if I would?! 😉
.
I thought he was gay & he thought I was (quote) ‘an arrogant bitch’ 🤣🙈
.
It wasn’t until 6 months later when Ewan started bringing me gluten free biscuits, left over from his training courses, to my help desk in the library that I agreed to a date. Food, undoubtedly, remains the key to my heart! 🥰
.
Our first date was on 15.01.09 in Glenshee. I’d told Ewan I wanted to see snow & so he kept driving until he found some! Fuck, I am a bit of a bitch maybe 🙈
.
My fav memory with Ewan is my first bday together. I had told him that, as a child, I was upset (jealous) that my Dad had fireworks on his bday every year (his bday is 5th November) & I didn’t. Ewan remembered this & on my bday drove me into the middle of nowhere, told me to get out the car & he went into the boot – I thought he was going to kill & bury me! Turns out he had bought fireworks! 🥰
.
We moved in together in August 2009 & got out first cat Merlin (black) 2 months later.
.
In April 2012 we bought our house.
.
We got married in a Scottish castle on 12.12.13.
.
Fizzy (tortie cat) joined us in 2016 & Ozzy (dog) in 2018.
.
Along the way we’ve also acquired 3 nephews and 1 niece that fill us both with immense joy & laughter!
.
The rest, as they say, is history.
.
Oh, & last year I medically retired (late stage cancer perk – there has to be some right?!) and fulfilled my dream of buying a VW Campervan called Wini!
.
My ideal day with Ewan involves adventure, food, nature, driving in Wini & lots of laughter!
.
One more thing, we both LOVE fancy dress…and Ewan, in particular, loves wigs a worrying amount 🤣
