I said yes

After 25 years of living together a chance conversation at the hospice has got the staff all excitedly planning a wedding. Brian was concerned about how I would manage finacialy after he had gone because his private pension would stop and I wouldn't be intitaled to any benifits because we are not married. So they said why not get married then. I laughly said to much hard work getting him to colchester regestry office. Then they well get married here. Brians eyes lit up and he said will you marry me and I said yes. As I said its only taken 25 years and psp to catch me. Janexx

  • Hey Peter - it's actually Flemish (Belgian), short for Godelieve, which means Beloved by God (aren't you sorry you asked!). A good friend in England named her little girl Nieve, which I believe is also Irish. How are you, Peter? I always enjoying reading your comments with lots of mate thrown in :-). I have a very good friend in Australia, Larissa. She lives in Taringa, near Brisbane, Queensland. Is that close to you? Take good care x
