20 years of marriage is celebrated with presents of 'china'! So the girls very kindly got us 'Charlotte'
Isn't she beautiful, I've always liked White Sussex!!! Very easy to look after too!!!
Mark bought me a necklace with my favourite stone and birth stone an amethyst!
It is stunning and a very dark stone which is unusual, but matches my engagement ring beautifully! I am thrilled, I have always yearned after necklaces like this.
Now buying for hubby proved to be difficult and after consulting with my sister, and visiting every, yes every jewellers in Swindon we found the perfect one in the very last shop!!! Phew!!
A pocket watch. Sorry about the reflection, but that pic shows the colours best! What a hit it proved to be, he was over the moon, apparently had always wanted one!!!??? How my sister knew and I didn't, has got me thinking, what does she know that I don't!!!!! lol!!!
No you don't need just a waist coat to wear it, well he doesn't, he has clipped it to his belt and its tucked in his pocket. He does make me laugh, he keeps getting it out, clicking it open and saying 'your late'!!! We actually exchanged gifts earlier this week as K's shifts wouldn't allow her to be here at 'opening time'. Anyway last night when he came in, I asked how many people had been late? He said none and that infact it was him that had been late to a couple of meetings, I said quick as a flash, well you should have opened your watch once in the meeting and said 'I'm late' just like a little white rabbit. We did laugh!!!!!!!
He is a very special man! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Now for your surprise, which you have all been waiting so patiently for, I'm sorry it took so long, but the weather and my back have slowed the whole process down, as it has been very hard work!
So here is before
and here is the after, posh hey!!
We are thrilled with the finished result, as this is a favourite place we like to sit
so come and join me beside the pond, would you like tea and cream scones or a pimms?
