nearly done :D

Good afternoon all.I hope you are all well.11 years today i finally married my hubby, we had been together 12 years and engaged for 9 years so everyone was well relieved to see us set the date.I chose the day before my birthday so my hubby would

This was taken when we had been together only 4 weeks and it was the first time i met his family.

I married the day before my 27th birthday and hubby was 32 so we certainly made sure we were right for each other first.I am the organised one, i want things done straight away, very impatient and very determined, hubby is laid back, chillaxed and a things can wait until another day kind of bloke.Hence me having to drive around the block 4 times on our wedding day as he wasn`t there.I love him to bits and he has the knack of just smiliing if i`m annoyed at him and i melt.
So the kitchen is nearly done, just finishing off the last wall.I have done the walls a very pale beige and then i`m having a lime green blind, kettle etc and then black slate effect lino.
My mum and stepdad are taking us out for dinner tomorrow and  they have  just brought me a fabulous cream and black bedding set and have ordered me the matching curtains etc so can`t wait for those to arrive :D
So thats my day.
Thanks for still popping by, even though theres nothing to see.
Have a fabulous bank holiday weekend.

Hope you had a fab anniversary. We celebrated our 19th on BH Monday. We kind of rushed into it, as it was love at first sight. So even though I was engaged to someone else (ahem) we met and were married within 8 months.

It must have been right though, cos 19 years cant be wrong eh :)
