Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

No not the  Kaiser Chiefs single that I absolutely love and has one of those Choruses that everybody finds them selves singing along to. A bit like 'Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners. I digress.....it was our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. On Sunday the 7th October 2018 we celebrated being married for 40 years.  Goodness the time has flown.  

The weather was identical to the day we got married, warm with brilliant sunshine. Hubby was 22 and  I was two weeks shy of being 22 years old.  I celebrate my 62nd birthday soon, I can't believe I've been retired for over 2 years. 



We went out for the day and put the misery of house buying/moving behind us.  We met up with friends who handed us a beautiful bouquet of flowers, that have ended up being displayed in cut down milk bottles as all my vases are packed. We had a lovely Sunday Roast with a bottle of wine to celebrate.  It was a lovely 'chill' day. 







Along with the romantic card, hubby bought me some gold, ruby and diamond earrings, which are beautiful. Oh and there was some skin cream too. I have booked a week away in Spain next March as a his present.

I was going to buy a romantic card but after reading the words on 'An Anniversary Poem for my Husband (A.K.A. Mr. Right)' it was the card for me. 

You say my bum does not look big... and tell me lovely stuff.
You know that when I say 'I'm fine' it means I'm in a huff!!
Its true you are my Mr Right and really quite a catch, 
and since I'm Mrs Always Right we make the perfect match!

Never a true word! He-he LOL.

Oh well back to reality. I received a phone call Saturday from our Estate Agents asking why there was 3 enquiries still outstanding.  I asked him to explain as I'd heard nothing. Turns out I'd answered one 2 weeks earlier by email so I have proof.  The other 2 I hadn't been asked about and they are for things that date back to 2003 10 years before we bought the house in 2013.  So I wrote stern email to our solicitor and a 'new secretary' was given as an excuse. So this week will be spent nagging them to get the last bits sorted, its just ridiculous. I'm seething inside but helpless too. 

Bye for now. Tx

  2. Sounds a perfect day and lovely card for your hubby, the words would ring true for us as well. As for moving house, even with a small or no chain it's still stressful, hope you get your moving date soon. We love our smaller forever home, it was the best thing we ever did.

  9. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary - and I like that poem very much. That's much more my style too. And I can't even think about moving - it would stress me out way too much. First stop has got to be serious decluttering I guess.

    1. Decluttering before you move is definitely the way to go.
