32 Years- Board, But Never Bored!

Purchased in Waitrose this week – FairTrade rubber gloves


…so I can get out the Brasso…


…to polish this…


…the little silver vase from the top of my wedding cake!

Today is our 32nd Wedding Anniversary

No major celebratory activities planned- but I did put the vase on the breakfast table next to the Weetabix. The original flowers were fresh ones – these silk ones have lasted a little longer.

Jamie Oliver boardNo extravagant gifts – but Bob always writes me a special love letter on days like this [how romantic!] and he has also given me a serving board á la Jamie Oliver. My board is handmade – using the piece of wood Bob had left over from mending the garage door at Cornerstones!

It is smoothed and sanded and oiled, and I love it!


So thank you Bob – for 32 fabulous years of joy, love and laughter.

I can honestly say I have never been bored with our marriage!

This is Bob in France in 2006, celebrating our anniversary then with a large ice cream sundae in Galeries Lafayette, Paris.

I have to tell you that he is much slimmer now!

Congratulations today are also in order to all those GCSE students who have done well in exams – especially to my niece Lucy who rang me with her results earlier!
