Another Anniversary!

Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.

Jane Austen 1775-1817

Aside

I know some of you must think I am a serial anniversaryist (and if that isn’t a word it is now) but this one – 23rd of NOVEMBER is bona fide our 28th wedding anniversary.

Sadly it’s not a pearl or diamond one - just orchid. However we are going to a new hotel to us - Farthings – on the other side of Taunton and MTL thinks it will be good. Just for one night only. More later:)

Congrats and that, but ORCHID?
Who decides these things?
Don't get drunk and punch the barman.

Happy Anniversary to you! I think we've just celebrated our tupperware, or maybe it was aluminum -- I lose count.

I just saw your comment on Kim's blog and I'll have you know I was on my way that very moment to get another piece of chocolate from its hiding place in the kitchen. After reading your comment, I pinched some of the, um, loose tissue in my waist area and decided to give it a miss. So you just saved me from about 400 calories and thank you very much.

A serial anniversaryist is what you are, Pat. I love it. So many things to celebrate. Enjoy. Live to the max, as they say in the Caribbean.

I think I remember you saying that your 28th anniversary would mean a lot to you. I hope it was a very special one indeed, and congratulations to you near-newlyweds.

PI said...

Thank you all I really appreciate your good wishes - makes me feel warm and glowing - always a good thing in November.

Mary: welcome! That's 400 cals you woe me- say four glasses of wind:)
I mean wine of course.

Z:Not only do I have appreciative readers but readers who actually remember what I've said(even if I don't always myself). Yes it means I have been married to MTL longer than anyone.

I quite like the idea of an Orchid wedding anniversary. Happiness and much wellness to you both.
