Thank you....


Thank you all for the good wishes for our 25th Wedding Anniversary, also to Gina, Carole and Susan for the lovely cards....



We went away for 48 hours (just the 2 of us) and to be honest it was bliss, it was so nice to just plod around doing what we wanted as our own speed. Like after swimming and the spa we decided to chill out watching TV, but both fell asleep, lol.. Something we can never do when we have Steven, as after swimming we would have had to go out for a walk straight away as he does not like stay in, so it was lovely to just relax...



I scheduled my Anniversary card to go on the 17th at 3pm, as that was the time we got married and 25 years on, Clive and I were enjoying warm home made scones, clotted cream, strawberries and a pot of tea in a little tea shop called The Baytree in Wickham, it was lovely...



In the evening we stayed in the hotel to eat and at the end of the meal they presented us with a small black forest gateaux with a candle and wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plate, which I thought was very sweet of them.





Basically for 48 hours, we ate, drank (2 bottles of Champagne), swam, went to the spa, for walks, chilled and slept, it was bliss...



and when we got home we found that Sam had put up banners, balloons and thrown silver confetti all round the house (you wait Sam I'll get my own back with the confetti, lol)...

Hi MAria

It sounds as if you had a lovely time - and so well deserved. Don't you look glamorous in your little black dress?

When are we seeing photos of the crafty attic in it's stocked up state?

that was soooo romantic how you set up the tea in the little cafe at the same time as you got married. never ever thought of doing something like that. you both deserved this weekend as you both work so hard. you should do it more often. help recharge your batteries.
