I can't believe it's a year since my last anniversary post...
how does that happen?
So 19 years ago today we made those special vows...
(don't worry, I didn't say 'obey')
and to celebrate this year
we I decided on a country house hotel/spa for our obligatory cheeky night away.
I had planned on a picnic in the gardens, lounging in the sunshine doing nothing but cloud watching.
Clearly that was never going to happen this summer.
However, neither was I expecting a Brit to be in the Wimbledon final, so being inside wasn't so bad!
We took cream tea in our room and I have never been so pleased to find a TV in the bathroom!!
We did manage a walk around the grounds in between showers -
pretty and wonderfully green
The grave stones belong to family pets from the time when the property was privately owned. Apparently the building has 2 ghosts, one a maid who took a fatal tumble hanging curtains in the main hall, and another boy who still walks the grounds looking for his lost dog (buried above)!
Overall it was a lovely treat - good service, posh dinner, wellies and croquet widely available and time with my favourite person.
Unfortunately for my gorgeous husband, taking a job 300 miles away means this is our first anniversary APART.
Yes, we agreed to celebrate a couple of days early, but I couldn't let it pass without some sort of forfeit.
Since I posted a couple of wedding pictures last year I thought I'd share some of our honeymoon, just for a chuckle. (for me, obviously)
We spent our honeymoon in Santorini - which is SO beautiful I can't believe we haven't been back.
HOW young we both look...
(Sorry for blurry pictures, it was years before the beauty of digital cameras and these are photos of photos)
Here's Cleggy in stripy dungarees!!!
What the???? (he hee)
and the last night...we REALLY didn't want to come home!
Check out Cleggy's brown neck!
(I loved that Swatch watch)
I hope you are laughing along lovely husband...
I'm thinking you need to make it up to me by planning something super special for our 20th anniversary this time next year.
