Thirteen years ago today Paul and I went out on our first date, it doesn’t feel as if it’s been thirteen years since I was busy rummaging through my wardrobes searching for the perfect casual-cute outfit to woo my man whilst wracking with nerves but as they say ‘time flies when you are having fun’.
Thirteen years later we are happily married, living in a beautiful house with two wonderful children and our basset hound Molly whose days may be numbered but like us, she is still going strong.
I won’t lie, we don’t live in a bed of roses and like most couples we’ve had our ups and most certainly our downs but they say a marriage takes work and god knows we both do plenty of that.
We usually celebrate our anniversary but with Valentines Day just around the corner we thought we’d save the celebrations for the following day. It is however Shrove Tuesday aka ‘Pancake Day’ and as we happen to have our wonderful nieces staying the night we will be sure to enjoy plenty of food, fun and frivolities.
