We had an interesting conversation after I picked Julia up from work yesterday.
“I’ve bought steak for tea.” I said.
“I thought we were going to have that for our anniversary.” she said.
This was news to me as I thought that I’d had the idea all on my own. She has probably been using mind control techniques to manipulate my weak and feeble man’s mind.
“I thought we’d have it early, as part of a longer celebration.”
“You’ve forgotten when it is, haven’t you?”
“No I haven’t. It’s later this week.I just thought I’d prolong the joyous celebration.”
She wasn’t convinced and went on to narrow it down and corner me like a rat in a trap. It isn’t fair, I can’t drive through traffic, talk and lie convincingly at the same time.
It’s today. This time next year I am going to search “wedding anniversary” and check the date. WP may yet prove to be good for something apart from blogging and providing shoddy “improved” services.
Thirty one years. Where have they all gone?
I’m going to think about that as I go about decluttering,
The pictures are from Huttoft beach car park on our last (and only) trip to the coast this year. It’s just a long concrete strip of parked cars and a stretch of beach. Very old-fashioned and very relaxing, particularly when trying to avoid social contact.
I’ve had the photos since we went, but haven’t got round to using them.
An extremely late Happy Anniversary to you both, Simon 🙂
Thank you. It’s not that late. 🙂
Glad your anniversary prompted you to use photos from your one trip to the coast this year. At least the beach didn’t look crowded!
It was pleasantly uncrowded, and literally a breath of fresh air… 🙂
Happy anniversary, Simon and Julia!
Thank you. 🙂
Happy 31st anniversary, Simon and Julia! Wishing you both many more years to celebrate, and hopefully times will be better. 2020 has been one hell of a year. You can always have steak several days in a row… 🙂
At one time I’d have loved to eat steak for several days, but I’m not sure I could do it now – I’m adjusting to a more vegetarian lifestyle. 🙂
Sounds like you man-ipulated your way out of that really well. Congratulations 🥳
Thank you. 🙂 I have been thinking of offering Mendacity Masterclasses for Married Men – for those times when the truth is just going to cause trouble.
😂 That could work, it’d be a great replacement for the Jeremy Kyle show, some positive vibes 😉
We could run something like younger version of Men in Sheds. Instead of keeping occupied, healthy and doing good in the community we could sit round drinking tea, building a spud gun cannon and plotting the end of …er…everything.
Interesting final sentence. I got one of those looks last night from Gillian when I wondered out loud.
“How it was possible to squeeze so many idiots onto one planet?”
She suggested it wasn’t a good FB post 😂
Sounds like an excellent post to me, and a great title for a book – a 21st century take on “Last of the Summer Wine”. However, it would be foolish to suggest that you did it as the consequences, as we know, would be immediate and dreadful. 🙂
See my next post for a way of getting round this problem…
I just blogged on a way round this problem. 🙂
Spud Gun sounds great, not quite Tarantino but I like the concept 😉
About twenty years ago I did start planning, but had nowhere to fire it so let the idea lapse.
Of course with all the MI6 and CIA listening devices they have these days it’s possible we are now under surveillance 😂😂
If they can make sense out of anything I say they will be doing well. 🙂
Are you sure that you have the number of years right?
Do you think I’m too cheerful to have been married for 31 years?
I’m amazed that I’ve been married so long, I must be honest.
I know that feeling. We may have our faults but being chosen by the right person is obviously one of our strengths.
I think that sums it up very well. 🙂
Back in May we sent a birthday card for a 4-year-old to a child on who was 5.
I imagine the stress was placed on the error rather than the beautiful gesture of remembering the birthday. 🙂
Yes, and it was MY fault.
Thank you. 🙂
You’re very welcome. some flowers for you and Julia today 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
Thank you. 🙂
At least you got the week right
