Today 33 years ago today my hubby and I said our “I do’s” on our wedding day.

It seems like yesterday…..where do the years go? We have our beautiful children and grandchildren as precious proof of those years. They have not all been easy, we have shared very good and very bad times….we have shared prosperous year and lean years…we have shared pleasure and pain….laughter and tears. But through it all love has prevailed and won the day!

Happy Anniversary my husband. You mean the world to me and I love you more today than I did yesterday……..I thank our God for you every day. Thank you for taking such good care of me and our lovely family. I appreciate you and value you xx

And now…..back to bed for me! Survived the surgery but in a lot of pain at the  moment and on a liquid diet. Thank you so much for all the love, good wishes and prayers. All most appreciated.

Have a marvellous weekend everyone!

    Oh look at you, my gorgeous blogMamma!! LOVE those shots – Don looks as naughty as ever ;o) And congratulations! I think 33 years is an awesome achievement – you are an example to a generation that likes to chuck in the towel at the first sign of trouble. So glad you made it through the surgery and hope things are getting beter day by day. Love you both so much!! xxx

    I am writing a book called “So…How Did You Meet Anyway?” It is a collection of people’s “how we met” stories.
    I have posted the stories which have been sent in on;
    So…How Did You Meet Anyway?
    I am always shopping for stories and I would like to add yours. Please check out the site, and if you would like to contribute your “how we met” story contact me at;
    And if you would like any more information about the upcoming book, here is a link to a television interview I did in May.

    Take care and…congratulations!

      Susan I do sincerely apologize, I found this today, so many months later, in the spam folder of my blog. I will take a look at your website. Thank you so much, Colleen xx

    I have seen you together and I must say that you guys are perfect together! I was witness to the great love and respect you have for each other, the total complicity and the joy you have in each other’s company. Thank heavens JP and I have the same or I would be jealous! I can’t tell you how special it was for me to be able not only to meet you both in person but to spend quality time with the two of you: a week that I will never forget (or stop talking about!). Glad the surgery has come and gone and now take it easy and let The Donald pamper you!

    Sending lots of love and hugs my wonderful friend!
