Hubs and I reached a milestone today - our 50th wedding anniversary.
We treated ourselves to lunch at our favourite restaurant.
And bought a new car to celebrate. After much research hubs decided on the model and I picked the colour so it was a team effort. The order was placed many months ago and it was exciting to take delivery of it. There is nothing like that showroom shine and new car smell.
Hubs is standing alongside our new "chariot" in the showroom watching on while the plates are being attached.
A lot has happened in those 50 years. Children, travel both within Australia and overseas, retirement, a grand child, 3 moves in our married lives. Our first home was a 2 bedroom unit, then we moved to the family home where we lived for 45 years which was sold nearly 2 years ago and we could not be happier in our new home.
We received this lovely arrangement of flowers today from my parents
And this elegant set of gold rimmed champagne glasses and cross stitch from our very dear and long standing friend June of 46 years and her husband Peter as well as phone calls and emails from various friends and family members.
I did get sometime early this morning to head into the sewing room for a little while before going out to lunch and managed to make a start on sewing up some wine bottle gift bags.
Thanks Wendy for taking on the job of hosting us all again on the 3rd Friday night of each month for another fun night of sewing and crafting with likeminded others.
I just heard the champagne cork pop out in the kitchen so I am going to finish up here and enjoy another glass of bubbles along with some nibbles.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
