Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent good wishes for our Golden wedding anniversary. I will reply to them individually tomorrow.
We had a lovely day - cards, flowers, a special rose tree, chocs and champagne. a really nice lunch out- champagne in the evening. My husband had bought me a beautiful pair of gold earings and a posh slow cooker!!
I have needed a quiet time today to get over the excitement!!!
I know some on site are very interested in food - I had dressed crab to start and sea bass and scallops to follow. My husband had whitebait to start, followed by porterhouse steak and all the trimmings. Neither of us could manage a pud. It's funny really but with the whole menu to choose from it was fairly predicable what we each would choose. My husband is no real lover of fish unless it comes with batter on it and I don't really like steak. So when we go out it's a chance for both to have the sort of food we really, really like - the rest of the time it's a compromise. Perhaps there is a moral in there somewhere.
We were remembering how when we were first married and used to go up to London to the theatre or a jazz concert (sitting in the cheapest seats), we thought we were so sophisiticated to have a steak dinner at an Angus steak house, Black Forest gateaux and a bottle of Blue Nun wine. Laughable really, as I don't think either of us really enjoyed wine at that stage of our lives. Still all part of growing up together and we have happy memories.
Thanks again for your good wishes
