I do, I do, I do, I do – The prelude

Today, Wednesday, 13th February, hubby and I are celebrating our 15th year anniversary.
Fifteen years of love and cuddles, yells and screams,  and slams and sulks.
However in all that time, he has never given me the silent treatment.
He will talk until everyone in earshot gives up in exasperation.

There is a lot to be said for the silent treatment.

I’m still trying to sell him the “happy wife happy life” thing but he isn’t getting it. That’s ok, I’ve got many more years, I hope, to keep working on it.


A lot has changed in the last fifteen years!! We’ve changed careers, our little ones are not so little, a few wrinkles have dared appear and more than a few greys are clearly visible.

We decided to go to Melbourne because that’s where we ended up going for our honeymoon all those years ago.
I’ve chosen the accommodation so if it’s not good, I’ll get the blame (but sadly, not the silent treatment)

I think it will be good. It has a gym (essential) that is sadly not a 24 hour one, but open 6am until 10pm so I’ll have to wait until 6am to go there. There’s an indoor lap pool, which would be fantastic if I could actually swim a lap – and also a regular pool but the regular pool is outside and it’s not going to be warm enough to use comfortably.

It’s decidedly cooler this time around!! Fifteen years ago it was 43 (109.4F) degrees when we got married and 44 (111.2F) degrees as we were driving to Melbourne.
This time we’re flying and I’m hoping hubby is going to surprise me with a business class ticket (thank you Qantas)

He had to work on our anniversary day and we are leaving first thing tomorrow so we’re not really going to do much today except for share this little gem when he gets home from work.

I’m pretty excited!

Melbourne, shopping, food, sight-seeing.

It’s going to be so good!!

We are on a “bright and early” flight tomorrow which is not so bad as I know I’m going to be too excited to sleep anyway.

Anniversary and “V” day back to back! I better be a lucky girl!
