Thirty One Happy Years.
Yes we are going out together this evening – Bob’s chairing the Church Meeting! I wouldn’t have it any other way either – it may sound corny, but being with him through the ‘ordinary’ bits of life is far more important to me than eating expensive meals in fancy restaurants [and we shared one of those with the whole family last Saturday anyway]
There are lists of appropriate ‘anniversary gifts’ for each year – both the ‘traditional’ and ‘modern’ [see here] Apparently for 31 years the gifts should be timepieces. Next year is conveyances [if he thinks he’s getting a new motorbike…] and bizarrely after 44 years, you get groceries. Who makes up this rubbish?
Next Easter we will have a cumulative score of 75 years of preaching. Wonder if there’s a designated gift for that anniversary? [new cushions for the pews, perhaps!]
Here’s to the next 31 years with my gorgeous bloke!
