13th Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday was my 13th Wedding Anniversary. So much has happened in 13 years, alot of it seems to have been just in the last 6 months! The day didn't start great. My daughter woke me up at 5am and I didn't really get back to sleep. My husband then came in from his night shift and I said happy anniversary to me - and I have to confess, I had completely forgotten it was! I hadn't even got him a card. We knew that we were busy so had agreed not to do anything particularly special - we had even agreed no presents - we would just buy each other a shed as we really need one!

It was therefore an amazing surprise when my lovely husband went into the back of my wardrobe and pulled out something big (now then!). It was a beautiful painting by a local artist whose pictures we had been longing to purchase for several years. I am not easily moved to tears by gestures, but this one sent them trickling down my cheeks. Today we have put it up in the place that has been waiting for a picture since we had our new fireplace done several years ago. Maybe our house is starting to feel complete in more ways than one.
