Today is the anniversary of the day I got married. We have defied the odds, and have managed to stay married, and even fond of each other, for over twenty years.
I am allergic to writing a mushy post, and there are more than enough posts on this blog where I have laughed at yer man who I married. So instead I will post a link to this song by The Fureys.
It is not perfect, it doesn’t fully explain what he sees in me or vice verse.
It doesn’t tell him what he means to me, nor does it say how I feel about him.
It doesn’t give words to the love I still have for him, nor does it allow you to know how much I have enjoyed our life together.
However there is a line in it which I love, and which says ‘I will always love you’ so perfectly.
For those romantics among you enjoy.
And for yer man here…..
“So, kiss me, my sweet, and so let us part;
And when I grow too old to dream,
That kiss will live in my heart”

Oh Happy Anniversary. I am laughing thinking you thought he was in a band. God help the band.
I know imagine being married this long. I don’t even feel this old. 🙂

That just about sums it up. Thanks a million, it’s been good so far fingers crossed.
A happy anniversary. The words of the song – so sweet.
Thanks I’m glad you liked them, they are simple but say so much to me.
Dear Tric, you do have a lovely way with words. Sheen.
Happy Anniversary, so happy for you and yer man.
Thanks Charlene, me and my man are doing good!
Happy anniversary, beautiful. Hope you celebrate in style, reorganizing the dishwasher’s innards together over a bottle of bubbly 🙂
No bubbly as I was on taxi duty for my daughter, but after 24 years we nearly take it for granted at this stage! Next year though is 25 so if we make it I’ll insist on a bit of effort.
Many happy returns!
Thanks a million
Congrats to you both. I’m always astounded when I hear of long sucessful marriages & I’ve been married almost 25 long years lol (you’d never know haha)
Ha ha. I understand, it seems impossible to believe that we are married 24 years yet that is around about the age I still feel. 🙂
Absolutely, congrats to you both! Not a mushy post at all, just sweet and I loved those perfect, long-lasting words quoted from the song.
I also read quickly through your previous post…. stunning post.
Sorry I haven’t been keeping up but things a little difficult at present! xx
Thanks for your kind comments. I’m hoping your feeling a bit better.
Belated happy anniversary! I hope he treated you to a romantic evening at a nice place to eat and have fun. He needs to count his blessings that you found him! Where would he be without you?! (Right?) 🙂
Ha ha. What words of wisdom you speak. I’m sure it’s not easy for you to read this post, thanks so much for commenting. x
Happy (belated) anniversary and the post was suitably sentimental without any gushiness 🙂
Thanks Naomi mission accomplished so. 🙂
