20 Years and counting


Nicola and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary on Wednesday. We had a quiet day off together. After a visit to the shops and lunch in our favourite restaurant - Robinsons we dug out some old pictures and watched a very grainy VHS video of our wedding.

Its amazing how much things have changed in 20 years. It was funny to see many of our friends who we still hang out with today and ourselves. I certainly have gained a FEW pounds and lost a little hair and Nicola reckons she looks younger now than she did then. (Difficult I would have though she was 19 then and 39 now)

Read this quote: “Love is blind – marriage is the eye-opener.”

I am positive that we really didn't know back then what we were getting into and many other people thought Nicola was making a big mistake. (Even the Rev Ridley suggested that she think again - thanks George!) Well 20 years later I am glad she made the mistake and opened my eyes to something great.

What have I learned? Lots but here are a couple:

Its much better to share life with someone else than to do it alone.
Doing life together is not always easy but the rewards are incredible.
