Nearly a month has passed since then, but our three week honeymoon completely suspended reality - I am happy to report we are still very much in our little wedding bubble.
I have been at a loss what to write about in my first blog back. But to prevent it turning into an essay of enormous proportion, I shall write in sections to keep it short and sweet.
First up - life as a newlywed so far. Honestly, it's a very strange feeling. Neither of us have really changed as people - Chris is still very much Chris; he lost his wedding ring twice within the first week of married life. But I feel excited and proud that he is now my husband.
Of course I still haven't gotten used to my marital name. And I am really going to have to work on responding when people call me Mrs Strong - staff at our honeymoon resorts must have thought I was either incredibly rude, or some sort of an imposter.
But that will come in time. This week I shall make a start on making it official and changing over my passport, driving licence etc which should help matters.
So, so far so good! We have only just returned home - Chris did carry me over the threshold, which was no mean feat after three weeks of four course meals - and we are still adjusting to becoming husband and wife.
But all in all, life is just perfect. And after finishing my first day back at work today, I shall return home to my husband, still walking on cloud nine.
