44 years ago Colin and I married, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health. We didn't really think what that meant at the time. We knew we wanted to be together til death do us part but we were going to have a happy, healthy life until the end. Well we have had a very happy marriage although there have been some testing times, none more testing than the last 6 years.
I found the last card C managed to sign himself and the one I sent him that year so they will be put up with others we have received. C hasn't been able to go to the hospice for the last two weeks. If he had, I would have taken him somewhere to celebrate but I'll take him to the hospice in the morning as I'm going to lunch with a friend. In the evening another friend is joining me for a Chinese meal and I'm going to mix some Baileys with ice cream for C and we will have a little celebration. Both my brothers and all of our sons and families will be at a family wedding in Yorkshire so it's good to have friends who can join us and help drink the wine. We will toast you all so crack open a bottle and join us if you can.
