Today is the first day of the grouse-shooting season. It is also our Wedding Anniversary. We have been married for more years than I can believe possible. I have known Barry for most of my life and that is a very strange thought. We met in our late teens, married in our early twenties and brought up four children. He is my best friend, the only person in whom I can confide anything and everything and he makes me roar with laughter. He is honest and true and constantly surprises me with the breadth of his knowledge and his ability to retain sometimes obscure facts. This evening we shall have Champagne as a little celebration and it will be good because Gillian and Paul are here to share the bubbles. Marnie will probably have a little taster, Kiri and Callum a lot less. We shall eat together and laugh a lot and toast our good fortune and good health.


  1. Happy Anniversary to you! I, too, met my husband in my teens and married in my early twenties.

  2. Congratulations! Hope you enjoyed your champagne.

    I met my LSH in my teens and married him when I was 18 and a half. It seems SUCH a long time ago. We'll be celebrating 30 years next year. And they said it wouldn't last.

  3. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!

  4. Thank you Gennasus, sweet bay and Cathy :-)

  5. Happy Aniversary to you both. John and I married when I was just eighteen. We shall have been married for 45 years on the 18th!I sometimes wonder how time has passed so quickly. Have a wonderful time with your family, I shall be thinking of you. Hugs xx

  6. Thank you sylvia - enjoy yours on 18th!
