twenty years

Twenty years ago on this day something happened that changed my life. I was invited to a barbecue by a very special friend, there was someone she thought I should meet. “I’m not interested”, I said, but I went anyway. Little did I know, she had said the same thing to the “someone”, with the same response. The rest, as they say, is history. We had a couple of dates

and before long we were cohabiting. We’ve had some good times, both at home

Along the way, we have learned the essential ingredients of a successful relationship. It takes a lot of teamwork,

a bit of role play doesn’t go astray

and most importantly, don’t argue over the little things.
