HAPPY 21st WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TO US

I am a bit sad today... it is our Wedding Anniversary and we are hundreds of miles apart.... and I love Stew so very much. I can't believe we have been married so long! We have been through a lot in that time, and come out stronger and more 'in-sync' than ever. TIS SWEET.


Our Story: I was 7 months out of a bad marriage, on my own with 4 little kids....the FIRST night I went out with a girlfriend I met Stew... it was instant LOVE on my part, maybe LUST on his.... my first words to him were " Don't get interested, I'm a solo mother with 4 kids!" ... he got interested anyway.

Within 2 weeks he had moved in.... the kids started calling him Dad almost immediately too! We got engaged a few months later, moved towns, bought our first home together, had our first baby together, got married, had our second baby together (so I had 6 kids in 10 years). He adopted my first 4 kids, and we have lived happily ever after! (I have not seen my first husband since the day I left him, nor have the kids - his choice). My Dad always said Stew's either a Hero or a fool... I prefer to think he's my HERO.

So, when you read this Darling "I love you"....

Today:
-kids to school (as per usual)
- fold the bloody washing , I STILL have not done it!

No other plans yet... will just wait and let the day unfold... the mad dog slept all night, hardly heard him at all! Me thinks he's getting used to his new home, what a relief.

What can I say... I've been busy today! Been into town to do a bit of essential shopping, home, lunch, back into town to pick up Mike and Abbey cos his car broke down... and when I got home again these were on the doorstep:

WELL... all I could think was "There is NO WAY those came from Stew! ".... how did I know this? cos Stew knows I HATE orange flowers... so they could not be from him!
Well I opened the card and bugger me if they were from Stew! So I rang him and told him the flowers were orange ... he was NOT impressed cos he had stipulated that the flowers were NOT TO BE BLOODY ORANGE.... so the upshot is I am getting new BLUE flowers delivered tomorrow! NICE. The orange flowers are being put in the upstairs rumpus room...

End of Day: a nice day... even without my lovely man around.
NSV: Not so good today, strayed a little bit on the portion sizing.... slip ups happen me thinks... nite nite.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!

    My OH and myself have recently celebrated our 26th anniversary in April and you are so right about going through a lot for a few years but WOW! We too are MUCH STRONGER AND SOOO MUCH MORE IN SYNC!! I can now finish his sentences off and I know what he is going to say just as he opens his mouth to say it and lots of other (twin like) things happen between us now....strange but TRUE! It is nice to be so much in sync!

    Enjoy your day.

    Hugs xx

  15. Congratulations! Your hubby must be a very incredible hero. The fact that he conquered your heart must rank up there as a rival to any of the greatest feats of Hercules.

  19. Congratulations to you both. What a great achievement to be together so long.

    Good score on the flowers. Now you get double to enjoy. Just picture the orange ones as being pink.

    Glad to hear Teddy is starting to settle down at night.

  22. CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS!!!!!! Wow, that is great!!

    I had Nick on this day 14years ago!!

    Can't wait to see the Blue flowers:)

  23. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary and I hope the blue flowers are even better than the orange ones. I bet they only heard the word orange and not the words can't be orange.

    And I thought moving in with my man after knowing each other for just under 2 months was fast. You certainly bet us on that one. I can only hope we stay as happy and have as good a relation as you and Stew have.

    It's actually very complex in this full of activity life to listen news on TV,
    therefore I just use internet for that reason, and get the latest information.
