anniversary

Believe it or not today is our 35th wedding anniversary. And I only went and failed to get C a present or a card. I am not the most romantic of guys, as I’ve admitted previously, but this was pretty dismal. C got me a card of course ( a charming one) but to make matters worse our daughter R took the trouble to make us a card using a photo of herself toasting our achievement with a glass of wine. Plus, she’d written the whole card for us in Italian which she’d translated herself and it was just lovely (in case you hadn’t picked it up from previous postings R has Down’s Syndrome).  I felt shamed. What’s more I can’t even take C out for lunch or dinner today as she’s spending a few days with daughter E and S and our grandsons and we were heading out to the airport by mid-morning. I’d better find/do something in the next couple of days to make up for it. And I was talking about Nick Faldo’s self-centredness…
