I've been thinking seriously about Phil and myself, how we met. fell in love and got married. Why now? you ask. Yesterday it was out 49th wedding anniversary which is not bad going for two people who married in their latish thirties.
I'd not been out so couldn't buy Phil a card but he bought this one for me and I thought it hilarious. It says "To my Wife on our Anniversary....you said I DO! I said I DO! so WE DID!"
I liked it much more than one of those lovey dovey flowery ones (although I've had lots of those too over the years and loved them) but this to me just said it all.
We didn't do anything special. Spent more time than usual together during the day and went out and had an enjoyable afternoon tea. While I was out and Phil was in another part of the shopping centre I managed to buy him a really nice anniversary card. Late in the day but still well meant.
One more year, if we last that long, and we will be celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary. When we married way back in 1967 we never dreamed we'd see the 21st century and yet here we are hoping to celebrate 50 years in 2017.
P.S. I had also wished Phil a happy anniversary on my Facebook page and was thrilled by how many people sent their best wishes to us both on our special day. You can honestly find so many lovely people on Facebook, people you will never get to meet and yet you become very close friends with some. It keeps me in touch with the outside world.
