Wedding Anniversary




I cannot believe it had been six years since AJ and I got married in the beautiful Lake District.  The 5th September 2009 will always be a special day.  It was the day I married my best friend.  It is the day that family and friends gathered to celebrate our love.

As both of my parents had died I wasn't looking forward to my wedding day without them.  I never could imagine actually getting married at all.  I thought I would be on my own forever.  AJ came into my life after being on my own for a long time.  I had created a life for myself that I was fairly happy with but I knew that I was lonely and wanted to share my life with someone special.

AJ and I met on a blind(ish) date.  We both worked for the local authority at the time but in different departments on different floors. A mutual friend of ours played match maker and suggested to AJ that we should meet up and see how we would get along.  AJ was brave and e-mailed me who to him was a total stranger.  I knew who he was but we had never met before or spoken.  I took a gamble and said yes.  We met at a neutral place in my town- AJ lived in the next town.  We spent a lovely couple of hours just getting to know one another- each person not expected much.  However, by the end of the night I knew I had met a nice guy.  We agreed to meet up a week later for something to eat.  We met, had food in common and again we agreed to meet up a week later.  After a few weeks we agreed to meet up more frequently.  I invited him to my house for a meal and he did the same.  We attended a wedding together after about seven weeks together and by then I knew AJ was THE ONE.

I was pretty scared of introducing AJ to my brother - R just turned up one evening when AJ was visiting and they got on pretty well.  I introduced him to some of my friends at the wedding, they liked him a lot.

I don't remember the first moment we kissed ( I think it may have been in my living room but not 100% sure).  I think the first time we said to each other we loved each other was in a pub.  But I know that after three months I was smitten.

AJ moved in with me after only eight months but I was 32 at the time and knew what I wanted in life and felt like it was my time to live.

We have been together over eight years.  We have had our ups and downs and had many highs and lows.  But I haven't regretted a day that we have been together.  Our love grows stronger each and everyday.  I look back on our wedding day as being a perfect day.  It wasn't fancy or grand but it represented us perfectly.  We were surrounded by the people we love and love us. 

Happy 6th Wedding Anniversary to my wonderful husband AJ.  I love you always

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
