Welcome to our little sanctuary!
Sounds like this year has been one for the record books, my friend!! As life settles down to a normal pace and pattern over the coming year, you two will need to make conscious decisions and have clear conversations. There has been a whole lot of "noise" in your life this year, and that can drown out the little squeaks and klunks from places where the machinery of life operates.
As things quiet down, these little squeaks and klunks will need to be addressed. Best you do that as a team, approaching these maintenance issues together, rather than saying things like, "Geez. I never noticed how loud you chew. That's really annoying."
Enjoy London! Oh... and I was just there. If you have the chance, take a tour of Shakespeare's Globe Theater. Get Millie as your tour guide, if you can. It is a fascinating place, and she is a bring and shining spark, who absolutely adores the place, the history, and the theater in general. Her enthusiasm for the place is infectious.
