Aniversary

Tomorrow we will have been married for 56 years

A long time

The usual dips

6 kids, 12 + two grandkids

We made it through thick and thin

If I could choose again, Id choose him

Solid, dependable, weve travelled ,fought to support our kids

Shared university together

Shared poverty and riches

And now in our old age its not exciting anymore

Weve fought and still fight cancer

We fight inflammatory arthritis

We live without intimacy courtesy of prostate cancer

But we live

And weve managed 56 years togefher

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifes savings. Guess what? He robbed us of 750,000. http://raynipper.com

Best thing I ever did. Don't know what Dorli thinks ! She's glued to the American election.

Congratulations! Our 49th Anniversary is this year. We have lived a full life together. We started with growing up in the sixties on the edges of London and dipping in and out of the swinging sixties scene there. We courted by going out to a different music venue every night. We danced on the dance floor, if there was one, or just danced where we stood if not. When we look back at the energy we had it astounds us. We both had full time jobs and I had a horse. The horse had to be cared for every day twice a day. I would catch a bus at silly o-clock to feed her and turn her out and then catch the tube to my job in London. Then do the reverse on the way home with the mucking out added in. Chris would pick me up once I had showered and changed and we would dance until the early hours before going home to start it all over again the next day. At weekends we rode out in the countryside, me on my horse and Chris on a borrowed one.

We waited ten years to have children because, once we married, we were renovating houses as well as caring for the horses (yes he had one by then!) and still partying albeit a little more sedately. Each house move was dictated by the need for land to keep horses and always came with a dilapidated house to renovate.

We thought we had finished when this house was all done but here we are again building a bungalow! No horses now. They were sold when we went full timing. I do miss them
