Today is my eighth wedding anniversary! I joke that ‘I haven’t killed him yet’ but he knows that’s a joke. Love you, sweetie!

  1. Congratulations to both of you!

    8 years is inconceivable for me. I have never been remotely close to live for that long with one person. I have yet not met the person I might want to marry.

    Better not kill him. At your age, you might not meet anyone else who can stand you 😛

    • Exactly 🙂 He’s done dammed well with putting up with my shite, I better keep ‘im.

      8 is an all time record for me, and I think it was four before it was broken a few years ago by himself. This is why I joke I haven’t killed him yet! He must be pretty cool.

      • Oh so you are next by…

        Do you have any recent picture of yourself? I was just looking at the one on the post, and I think it’s the first time I see your face, I don’t remember having saw it on your blog before. I assume this picture is 8 years old. So do you have anything recent you can share? (send me an email if you don’t want to post it on the blog — and then just remove this comment if you don’t want others to ask for pictures because I did lol)

  2. Congrats on your anniversary! seems we both are married to blonde wavy haired men hahahaha,they seem to good sports..perhaps even capable of putting up with crapola 🙂 I look at our wedding photos..cringe..long story but we both look so naive…idiots we were..at 21 and 24..we knew it all…31 years and four kids later we realise we didn’t know jack shit! one day i must go into the ‘wedding’ story … a tale of love,stupidity and a midget cake that should have never have left it’s mother…:)

    • Ooo! Please do. I’ve not told our story here, either. Funny how things that just are become normal, even when not! However – iDJ’s hair has never been that short again – yay! I love a long-haired man. He’s my first blonde, but looking good for being a keeper 🙂 I sure don’t have your history, and no chance of 4 kids (or even one) at this age. I think you must have known something good!

      • Hubbies hair was long and curly,the kids say he had a majestic mane!..when we married i was 3 months shy of giving birth to a watermelon..i had a borrowed dress from the mother in laws sister..buttercup yellow..i looked like a giant yellow tulip ..i hated the my hair had been done..at the mother in laws hairdresser and i looked a tad like Margret Thatcher (hair wise) my mother ad just come out of yet another stint in hospital after a nervous breakdown and was drugged to the max,the celebrant arrived with a tear in his pants (he had tripped in the mother in laws back yard and ripped them..he was 1000 years old) the witnessess were late so the certificate was signed by hubbies little sister and brother ( both under age so possibly we legally aren’t married) and the cake…well we were piss broke and it was so small i felt like a murderer sticking a knife in it..our honeymoon night was spent in a hotel near by lying in bed watching tv getting pranked on the phone by his sisters and me eating my weight in twisties and chips…i was a tad hormonal. on an interesting note (if this story was not enough odd) the celebrant died not long after and when our first born had his name giving that celebrant also died..omen??? who knows lol 🙂

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
