I had arrived at work that morning and been told that a couple of 'birds' (yup we used to talk like that!) had started and I was designated to invite them into our office for a cup of tea so we could get a closer look! Thirty seven years later I still tell people I was the victim of the demon drink - tea!
We were just good friends for a while ( yes we really were!) but eventually things progressed, we fell in love, got married on the 10th March 1979, and have been together ever since.
On our 'honeymoon' we were accompanied by three kids and my mother and dad and on our actual anniversary this year we have two of our grand daughters staying with us, so I thought I would take advantage of a quiet evening before then to wish my lovely Merice a very Happy Anniversary, and to say a heartfelt thank you for being you and putting up with me all these years!
