So here we are on another Monday. As normal I love to link up with The Oliver's Madhouse as I think its so nice to count your blessing's once a week.
So this year I will have been married 35 years and I swear it just raced past lol. My hubbie was in the Royal Navy and we became penpals back in 1978. We wrote to each other for nearly a year and when he came home on leave end of 1978, he asked to meet me. My dad would not let me go out to meet him and made him come to the house lol. We hit it off straight away and by January 1979 we were engaged a whole 4 weeks after meeting! We got married on July 7th 1979 and it was a wonderful happy day.
We both come from good stock so to speak and both set of our parents had long happy marriages.
My parents got married during the war. My mum had been engaged to a Canadian Airman who had been killed. She had known my dad for ages as her cousin was his best Friend . So they started hanging out then my dad said he fancied a party, why not get married lol. I think they look so happy on their wedding day.
They were married 50 years before my mum passed away and I thank them for giving me the building blocks of a long marriage. So as we go into our 35 yr I am hoping for another 35 fingers crossed.
