Today is mine and my hubbies 8th wedding anniversary. This is the first year that he has taken the day off work. We are both actually feeling ill (i even have a doctors appointment later) but we are determined that illness will not spoil our day. We took the boys to school and then went to Costa for a hot drink and a read of some Magazines - Home ones for me and fishing for him.
We are off later for Lunch and will be spending the evening infront of a film eating cheesy nachos from the same pot like we did when we were teens.
We recieved some lovely cards and as always we get each other presents in the theme of the anniversary year. This year is Bronze. Depending on what we find we can spend a little or alot. This year i made him a bronze certificate for a car driving day and he got me and him a pamper weekend and this gorgeous bronze fairy:
Yesterday i flitted around the house with my camera and took some pictures of things that remind me of 'us' to share with you.

There are lots of bits in these printer trays, like, a pink heart bought when we got engaged, a small envelope and card that i gave to him when we were about 18, and a little angel pill box that we got at The Vatican with a chocolate wrapper ring in it:
This post is dedicated to my husband and best friend.
I love you
