I have been very spoilt this week. Thursday marked our ten year wedding anniversary. Wow, has it been that long? It’s amazing what can happen in ten years. Looking back at the wedding photos we are starting to look young in the photos, which means we must be looking older in real life. Hmm. A lot of ups and downs over ten years. I had seven very close family members pass away since I met my husband. The last ten years have been rough, but he has been there for me. On the other hand, we have had some fantastic times. When I was pregnant we travelled to Europe and the UK, me sick the whole time but still very glad we went. It was the first time either of us has been overseas. We now have two children, one born in 2007 and one last year. We feel very blessed. We had paid off our house just to get another mortgage to make it big enough for two children (and maybe three if we are crazy enough). I am hoping to start a blog on what we have achieved with the house and land (just an acre but big enough for us) since we purchased it. The house was once a small dairy and looked it with its louver windows; my brother said it is like a shack. Now it is looking more like a cute little cottage.
On Thursday my husband gave me the lovely flowers in the photo. The old rusty wheel is from the family property which is what is left of the old farm. We have it sitting on our front verandah. I wonder what machinery it would have been used on. On the family property there are a few really nice old pieces of machinery that would look great in the garden but a tad heavy to move.
Thursday night we went out for dinner and a movie. It was the first time in 9 months we have been out like that together. It was fantastic. Saturday was my surprise outing. Hubby organised a big, black flashy limo to take us to a fancy restaurant for lunch and then back home again. We had so much fun drinking champagne in the back and for once didn’t worry about the prices on the menu. Thanks for a great day. x
