Landed, fetted and pampered

I know I have been MIA. I have been really missing the action we've had. But I have been topping up with ESC... we've had a LOT of catching up to do.

He found me a friend... so I have a girlie girl to hang with...

I was sick over the weekend and he nursed me back to health... ginger tea, chopped garlic, chicken soup, papaya and freshly squeezed carrot juice. The soup and tea were his idea and Mother Hen told me to use the garlic for the stomach cramping.

He comes home late at night... close to 2am most times... and if I am hungry, he will cook me something. Yes he is spoiling me, why shouldn't he?

I came from the airport to scented tea candles and fresh flowers in the apartment... really a lovely way to be welcomed.

I try to get up with him in the mornings to get him breakfast or at least pack it before he leaves and run an aromatherapy bath for him at night.

He calls me several times a day to check up on me even though I know he is busy.

He took me to a romantic dinner in his restaurant and I had the BEST restaurant experience of my life. I can see why they were voted Best Steakhouse in Dubai. We ordered 2 courses and got about 7. I am really feeling the benefits of being with a chef. His team went all out to give me a culinary experience worthy of an epicurean goddess. And yes, Wagyu beef does really melt in your mouth.

He has lost a lot of weight and is looking fabulous. Can you believe dude goes for a bike ride even at the hour he comes in? No complaints here. I am feeling the benefits. Was rather cute when we were at dinner and a British expat literally gawked at how gorgeous he was as she sat in disbelief because she couldn't believe that he was the chef behind the fab food she was having. Of course I blushed too. Gawk yah gal... he's mine. Plus I don't want anything that no one else wants. He was looking dandy in a shirt I bought him... and he cleaned up so much that his waiting staff didn't recognize him until he walked into the kitchen at the end of our meal.

We came home and played music for each other and danced and danced and danced.

So the consensus is that yes, it was damn well worth waiting for. Here's to a lifetime of such sheer bliss. We broke but we happy.

...."broke" can't last forever. Be happy ,marinate in your love ...you suffered long & hard for this experience....the late night cooking has to be addressed. If women are allowed to cycle and go gym ,then you know what to do...but for now marinate,marinate in all the joy that love brings....
