Wedding Anniversay

Caught a radio item today about how wedding couples are now paying for professional dance lessons so they can trip the light fantastic at their reception.

This is where I don my grumpy old bag hat and have a mump. I wonder if the more spent on a wedding the shorter the actual marriage will prove to be?

When we got married we really needed the presents, and they weren't grand, just linen and crockery and bits and pieces. And we didn't end up owing the national debt of a minor Latin American country to pay for it. Our first flat was rented, the loo was off the kitchen, and the floor sloped at 45 degrees, so if you dropped an egg it ran under the cooker. We had students downstairs, who when they spilt red wine on the shag pile cut a square out with a Stanley knife, washed it and hung it out on the line!

And here we are 27 years later, almost mortgage free, and with our son in his last year at school. God knows where the time went, but he's still making me laugh and is still the best man I know.

We're going out to dinner, and then a comedy club. I can always use a laugh :)

I got flowers and a caqrd. He's very sweet since I've been ill. We don't take each other forgranted as much now.

That's a success story - congratulations! I find the money spent on weddings now ludicrous and a bit disgusting.

Ditto ditto ditto! Except I haven't braved and weathered an illness like you have. (Love that story about the students and the Stanley knife!)
