I had a lovely 25th wedding anniversary party on Saturday. It was a party of 2 halves, my work colleagues & neighbours came around 4.30pm and went about 7.30pm, our Scouting cronies came at 8pm and stayed until 12.30am. It was great as we were able to spend time with everyone. My best friend of 33 years came from Sheffield, bringing along my God daughters. It was so lovely to see them. My oldest God daughter is 15 and is growing into a lovely young woman.
We had some lovely presents but I think people were giving us hints about timekeeping as we were given 3 clocks. We had nearly 40 cards which was just wonderful. The Oh! Bearded One' bought me a lovely diamond ring and a lovely bunch of unsual flowers (unfortunately no photo).
I know it is very corny but I do love the 'Oh! Bearded One'. Like most partners he can be infurating but he has many good qualities, he is kind, he picks up the houshold chores if I am too tired or in too much pain (as in the last few weeks) to cope with them, he cooks and he makes me laugh which keeps me going when things are feeling tough. He is easy going and easy to live with which probably more than can be said for me. I can be a really crabby old crow.
We are still eating the left overs and probably will do all week which is handy, I don't have to shop!!!
Still really busy at work and it could possibly be a sad week as we have 3 really poorly residents and at least one of them will die this week. Please pray for them and their families as they go through this reallly tough time.
I am on the last row of the back of my little crochet cardi but not much further on with any knitting.
