20 Years!

On a bright, warm, sunny day in Norway 20 years ago:
The weather was much like today in England actually as we've had a warm, sunny, beautiful summery day.
I can't believe it's 20 years ago since we got married. It has gone very quickly. Looking at that picture we looked so young and I was only 22 years old. My Mum kept telling me I was too young to get married when we went shopping for a wedding dress. My parents were 22 when they got married. I didn't think I was too young then but looking back, I think my Mum was right. I don't regret getting married though but I think I was too young and if either of my girls get married at 22 I'll be telling them the same thing (but I'd obviously support them).

Simon and I met and married within a year which is very quick compared to most people these days. But we  obviously made the right decision. Our day out in Somerset for The Tour of Britain two weeks ago was our 'official' celebration. So tonight we're just having a nice family meal. I've cooked a roast beef dinner. I'm not supposed to eat red meat at the moment but I'm ignoring that tonight and just praying my gall bladder doesn't make me pay for it in the middle of the night.

To celebrate our anniversary I've got a special offer on this week. Use code: wedding20 to get 20% off yarn and patterns until Friday. Why not use the discount to sign up for the Amazing Luxury Knits? Or treat your self to some nice yarn to kick off your autumn knitting.

I'd better go and check on the roast.
