Our 1st photo!
This picture was taken in the summer of 1984 in the South West of Scotland. I met Anth in the April of that year and we fell in love instantly..well I did! I knew from the moment I first saw him that I would marry him - I can't really explain it, I just knew! My mother had met him a few weeks earlier and had telephoned me, whilst I was working in London, and casually mentioned that she had found someone that would be her 'Restaurant Manager' for the hotel. She thought he was charming and 'just the sort of boy I would like you to marry'..I made a mental note to stay away! What my mother thought was good marriage material was certainly not mine!
Well, you guessed it. He was, and still is, the sweetest most wonderful man. He is from New Zealand, and though we lived there for 3 years, he has kindly lived in Britain for the last 18 or so years. We have grown together and take such joy from our children and home life. He puts up with my feminine style and flowers - which are on every possible thing - and tries not to raise his eyes when I come home with another junk shop item or paint another piece of furniture!
