1. How long have y’all been together?-3 years married/ 4 years together
2. Who asked who out?- Blake asked me before he even got out of hospital. He would flirt with me from his bed!
3. Who said I love you first?- Me, by accident. It just spilled out as I was falling to sleep but I know he loved me at that point, he just didn’t realise it yet.
4. Who is the most sensitive?-I’m going to have to pick me but neither of us are sensitive. After what we went through in South Sudan, you learn to toughen up pretty quick.
5. Where do y’all eat out most as a couple?- Blake loves to take me to this fancy Italian in London, Scarpetta but I prefer it when he cooks for me at home, it’s just more thoughtful.
6. Who’s older?- Blake, by 4 years. He’s creeping up to the big 30 and hates me teasing him about it.
7. Who has the worst temper?- I’m more impulsive. Blake is definitely the most calm, cool and collected. Except when I’m in labour, then he loses his shit.
8. Who is more social? -Blake. He would take me out and show me off every night of the week if he could.
9. Who is the neat freak?- Most definitely not me! I love to paint and neatness would ruin my creative vision.
10. Who’s more romantic?- Blake. He loves to make big gestures that blow me away but the sweetest things he always the most thoughtful. Although, surprising me with the house was pretty special…
11. Who’s the most stubborn?- Ooh this is a close call but I have to say Blake. There’s nothing any of us could do to keep him in that hospital bed after he’d been shot.
12. Who gets up the earliest?- It used to be Blake for his running but lately the twins have had me up at all hours. I miss sleep
13. Where was yall’s first date?- He took me up to the highest peak near the Peace Centre in South Sudan. The air was so clear and he had to piggyback me some of the way because of my leg injury. We were so high, it felt like we were touching the stars. I’ll never forget that feeling. It was like we were the only two people on the entire planet.
14. Who wears the pants in the relationship?- Obviously me
15. Who eats more sweets?- Blake. For someone who works out as much as he does, it’s surprising how much desert he can put away. Especially when it comes to pancakes
16. Who’s more sarcastic?- Me
17. Who makes the messes ?Definitely me
18. Who hogs the remote?- We don’t really watch tv, aside from keeping up with what’s happening in South Sudan on CNN and we’re both just as glued to that as each other.
19. Who spends the most money? – BLAKE We might live in the countryside now but once a billionaire always a billionaire. He’s going to ruin the kids, I keep telling him that.
20. Who is smarter?- Him. He’s CEO of one of London’s biggest companies and he runs the business like clockwork. He’s meticulous.
21. Did y’all go to the same school?- No. He grew up in central London, I lived in the suburbs.
22. Furthest y’all have traveled together?- South Sudan but he’s been hinting at Australia as soon as the kids can handle the flight time.
23. Who hogs the bed?- Our twins!
24. Who does the laundry?- We both do. If we didn’t we’d be buried in it. Small humans wear an unbelievable amount of clothes each day
25. Who’s better with technology?- Blake. I have to wrestle that phone off him sometimes and kiss him to remind him of what’s important.
26. When did y’all first get together?- Officially, on our return trip to The Peace Centre but I think we were together in our hearts before we even left
27. Are y’all married?-We are! And yes, I got to wear a wedding dress, which I never thought I’d be able to do after the bomb. Anything is possible with the right love and support ladies Xoxo

-Just over a year 😍
2. Who asked who out? Gabe and I said no a fair few times before he got to take me anywhere 💁♀️
3. Who said I love you first?
– Me. I knew it wasn’t too soon, so don’t let her convince you otherwise.

– We love taking Poppy and Marshall upto the tree house for picnics or out into the woods for a campfire.
6. Who’s older?

9. Who is the neat freak?

– Me. That’s why I took so long to come home, I thought I could do this thing called life on my own.
12. Who gets up the earliest?
– We all do! Life on the farm all happens before the sun has risen most days and I wouldn’t have it any other way 🥰
13. Where was yall’s first date?
At an equestrian centre. We rode our hand in hand and cloud watched in an empty field. There was nothing fancy about it. Just two people getting to know each other and I’ll never forget how he made me feel that day. I wasn’t just watching clouds, I was floating on them.
14. Who wears the pants in the relationship?
– We both do. It has to be equal and that includes everything from parenting to chores around the farm. We knew from the beginning that if we’re doing this, then we’re in it together. 🤜❤️🤛

16. Who’s more sarcastic?
17. Who makes the messes?
-Always him with his muddy ass boots in my freshly mopped kitchen 😬
18. Who hogs the remote?
– I wish! Tv is a thing of the past, when we do get five minutes, we like to read or have an early night 😜
19. Who spends the most money?
– Me. Gabe is all about the simple things in life but I love splashing out and treating him every now and again.

22. Furthest y’all have traveled together?
– Greece to visit my parents restaurant, it was the most fun!
23. Who hogs the bed?
– Gabe would say me, I know he would. He’s always moaning that I’m a duvet thief but he steals my pillows so all is fair in bed and war.
24. Who does the laundry?
– Me and my two little helpers 👩👧👦
25. Who’s better with technology?
– Me, Gabe’s much better with practical stuff.
26. When did y’all first get together?
– Our first official date was at the equestrian centre but I think we both knew at the May fair. I wore a pretty summer dress and he didn’t take his eyes off me the entire time.
27. Are y’all married?
-Not yet but one day! 💕
