Well what kind of photo do you expect for our 37th Wedding Anniversary?
I could include all of the usual jokes about '... and they said it wouldn't last' etc, but basically I think we've done okay.
It poured torrential thunder rain on our actual wedding day and my Rolls Royce wedding car actually broke down on the way to pick me up... which meant that I was over ten minutes late arriving.
But someone whispered to me with a cheeky wink, that it is lucky to have rain on your wedding day.
Bless them for trying to make me feel better.
As you can see today is glorious and the sun is shining beautifully.
There's the thinning hair (shh don't tell him)... and the odd wrinkle , but that just shows that we've lived, laughed, matured and changed together.
Oh don't get me wrong, there have been times that it's been touch and go, but when you think all that life throws at you sometimes, then it's not surprising.
I read or heard somewhere once (and I'm thinking it might have been Maya Angelou) that if a person smiles every time they see you, even if you've only just been into another room, then that shows that they truly love you.
I smile every time I see my hubby smile at me. when I come into the room.
I always remember those words.
I hope it continues especially now that he's retired and we're together so much of the time.
Today (once hubby comes down from the Romeo and Juliet balcony) we'll be wandering to the Polling Station to vote in the EU Referendum.
We'll take Muffy with us... if we can manage to move her from her latest hot spot.
She's supposedly the Safety Officer on this job keeping an eye (well nearly an eye open) on all of the proceedings.
So Happy One Month Retirement for tomorrow and Happy 37th Anniversary to us for today!
We have visitors coming to stay this weekend, so we will be celebrating then.
Good luck to everyone that we get the right decision for the best for all of us in the Referendum.
Happy Thursday to you all.
