This is my original blog for all our non-caravanning trips since 2009 and more recently posts about coming to terms with being single again having been widowed in 2018. And anything else too really!

My caravanning blog is (Get Your) Legs Down and all our trips in the caravan are there. My grog blog is The Ale Archive where I list every beer I’ve ever tried.

Happy Anniversary

Today, 13 years ago we ‘tied the knot’ in front a small gathering of friends and Trev’s Mum at Brighton & Hove registry office, before a meal at a restaurant on the Marina. We jetted off to Barcelona for a few days - the only time we’d ever paid for Club Class, before heading down to Sitges for the second half.

On the 2nd December 2015 we ‘upgraded’ to marriage following a change in the law. This was even more low key - just us two and the Registrar. I interrupted the domestic chores at home whilst Trev took a break from caretaking duties at the Pre-Prep. It didn’t dawn on us until later, that had we waited until the following April we would have had a great excuse for a party - our 10th anniversary, but it didn’t matter. We did go out for a meal later that evening though.

13 years eh. Unlucky for some - but not for me. I still count myself very lucky indeed - I got to share my life with him for nearly thirty years after all.
