09/05: WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

We've been so caught up in dealing with the aftermath of Richard's accident that we totally overlooked the fact it is our Wedding Anniversary today.  David and I are both 'second time round' and met 12 years ago - both vowing 'never again' but .... we eventually tied the knot and its the best thing we ever did.   We had a 'Kentish Wedding' in Knowle Country House a Victorian mansion where to a certain extent we could select our own words/music and that was followed by a meal for family and friends.       Unfortunately David got the giggles halfway through the vows and that set me off - we were laughing so much  I'm really not sure if we invalidated the marriage - We walked down the 'aisle' to Buddy Holly True Love Ways and left to the Beatles singing All You Need is Love .... unfortunately the master of ceremonies left the CD running and the next track was CRAZY by Patsy Cline so I think the scene was well and truly set then!    The next evening we'd hired a hall and threw a party/disco for family and extended friends/work colleagues .. so we really dragged it out for a few days.

Doesn't seem like 8 years ago ... but here's a couple of piccies



Back to posting artwork tomorrow!

Thanks KT - its good to remind myself I can 'scrub up' OK - I'm usually dressed in casual trousers and sweatshirts/t shirts these days :o)

Its my step-son who had the accident and he is still in a coma. We are seeing small improvements along the way but it will be a year or more of rehab yet so .... early days!
