This day 30 years ago I married a man I had only known for 8 1/2 months. We met on a blind date on Sunday 2nd August 1981 and by the Tuesday we had decided to get married. We got engaged on 29th September that same year and decided to get married on my Dad's birthday on April 17th 1982....
Happy birthday Dad....he would have been 92 today.
Back then several said it wouldn't last but we have proved them wrong and here we are 30 years later, 3 wonderful children who make the world a better place for them being in it and now 5 wonderful Grandchildren also doing their bit and I can proudly say I love him more today than ever. Life hasn't always been easy but the knocks have only made us stronger.
Here are a few snaps of our celebrations so far....
D and I have just got back from going to the Millennium Centre in Cardiff to see Paul Merton's show....brilliant.
Before the show they put on free entertainment in the wonderful foyer where we sat and enjoyed our tea and a glass or two :-)
Last night all of our gorgeous family treated us to tea out and gave me a bouquet of gorgeous flowers. Thanks to each and every one of you. We love you all and are so very proud of you.
They had a celebration cake made for us....yes he really did have hair back then :-)
They had the same picture framed up for us .....gosh we looked so young back then!
This is the card Jo made for us and they gave us 3 carnation plants with the names...Romance, Slap 'n tickle and Mother of Pearl. She very cleverly wrote poems to go with each one to mark out the 3 stages of our relationship too. Thanks Jo you are a treasure.
We have so much to feel blessed for. Here's to the next 30 years :-)
