Happy 3rd Anniversary...

..to us. Yes it was 3 years ago today we tied the knot. Only took him the best part of  9 years and 2 children. The hubster has one failed marriage behind him and 3 other children. Well I say children - 2 are adults now so you can understand his reluctance to do it a second time.  Call me old fashioned but I hated having a different surname to the rest of the family. Once when I was booking a flight with my eldest who was 6 months old at the time, after giving our names, the operator asked what my relationship was to the child. On another occasion I was at the local doctors where the receptionist couldn't quite grasp the concept of me collecting a prescription for myself and my daughter and the names being different. Oh the shame, the shame of it!! Then when school started I was being called all sorts of things - Ms (god I hate that term pick one its Miss or Mrs), Mrs followed by my maiden name and so on. Also did you know that when you aren't married you both have to trot down the registry office together? Great fun when you've just had a C-section. So it does make life a lot easier and if you don't have kids get married before you have them. Otherwise you have to think about babysitters for the honeymoon etc etc.  There is a reason why things are done in an orderly manner!

Loved up - hubster will not allow a picture of himself on the blog - he doesn't 'do' any social networking its for 'women'
But that asides we married because we love each other and still do. He is a wonderful father and a gem of a hubster so I'll keep him for a few more years yet.  He always gets me wonderful presents. His present from me is still en route crossing the Atlantic a fact which has not escaped his notice. I've had many a variation on the theme of "did you get a nice present because I didn't". The last one was him singing along to "I need a dollar" by Aloe Blacc and replacing it with "I need a present".  Yes this is being firmly placed in the marital ammunition folder.

Our wedding cake I made back in 2009
So its leather for 3 years. Oh er matron! And look what I got. I did showboat on facebook but omitted to mention the make as thought that would be a bit tacky as I'm not really into labels and shit like that but since you ask its Lulu Guinness.........It has leather handles. Its gorgeous. I love it!

The Bag!

  2. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! Same surnames are good when your children are at school. If one of them is ill and they have to call you at work they'll be asking for Mrs X and no one will know who they mean.

    1. Hiya am very flattered but I don't normally partake in these awards. I'm not up myself I just like to keep it plain and simple on my blog - no reviews, very occasionaly linky if its related to diet or 1970's think i've done 2 since October. I'm not bothered about how many followers, stats etc which gives me the ultimate freedom to rant as I please! Yipee. Thanks again xx
