Today is our 22nd wedding anniversary. According to the anniversary list that means copper. As the only copper things that spring to mind are saucepans and pipes I'm glad we don't tend to bother with presents. We haven't even bothered with cards this year. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't. I could say that we don't need cards and presents because we say 'I love you' to each other every day, but that would just be a big fat lie!
We are, I suspect, a typical married couple who've known each other for 25 years. We bicker, argue, have very different points of view on a lot of things and the sun usually goes down on our arguments before they've been resolved - we tend to make up in the morning over a brew.
But having said all that I wouldn't change Mark for the world and I hope he feels the same about me.
We've decided to acknowledge the day by going out for a curry tonight minus the children which I'm looking forward to, mainly because it means I don't have to cook.
I'm sure there's plenty of you out there who have been married or with your partners for a lot longer than Mark and I have been together and I'm being unashamedly nosy now by asking how long?
