What are we like?

We must be the most unromantic couple ever! We've had a week of quiet celebration. Last Thursday was our 37th wedding anniversary. On the Wednesday I asked Mike what tomorrow would be. His reply was that it would be Thursday, so I thought he must have forgotten.

On Thursday we visited a friend. Neither of us had remembered up to then. She must have said something that sparked a thought, so I wished Mike a Happy Anniversary. He immediately looked at his watch to see what the date was. Oh well, it doesn't mean that we don't care, just that we had more important things to think of.

Monday was his 70th birthday. On Sunday he asked me if we really had to go out somewhere. I hadn't made any arrangements, so said not if he didn't want to. He wasn't feeling too well that day, which explained why he didn't want to go out, but he was better next day, so we just ended up going for a quiet lunch at the pub (The Bear in Wool). It was very nice and I didn't have to cook. He wouldn't have wanted a big party anyway, but I felt it should have been more than it was.

  2. I don't think we've ever celebrated our wedding anniversaries, maybe a card in the early days. But for the Silver I suggested a trip on the Orient Express (I had a voucher for money off). Steven said no. And thinking about it, he was right.

    Our Pearl anniversary was just an ordinary Thursday.

    I had a birthday recently. I'm still waiting for my card!

    1. Shame about the Orient Express, something I always wanted to do but never have. Very expensive I think! Good to know we're not the only ones though.
