Just Jot It January 8th – Honourable

IMGP3580

I was beginning to feel all tingly as he gazed into the limpid pool of my eyes and professed his honourable intentions. Of course, I said yes. It was the day our life changed. Gone were the days when I just thought about me, now it’s “us” or “we”. How time flies! To think that when we started we were both students or trainees, had moved from a studio in Birmingham, a maisonette with Mrs. Booth in Nottingham (we were on the top floor and every week we played cards with Mrs. Booth, bless her soul), a flat in Ramersdorf, a split house in Unterhaching, now a terrace house with a garden in the south of Munich. HRH the son was born two years after we moved to Germany and we have been living here for the last 25 years.

We’ve gone through thick and thin, through being fit and healthy to all the illnesses and now trying to be as healthy as possible. We’ve cried together, laughed a lot, sometimes ignored each other, accepted each other with all our quirks and idiosyncrasy, had a lot of tiffs, and so on. But at the end of it, we’re best mates, soul mates if there are such things and we don’t mind spending the rest of our lives together.

  1. I am happy for you that you found each other early in life. I met mine when I was 40 and he was 49 and I was entirely surprised when he asked me to marry him. But like you we accept each other and fight through our challenges. It is a great blessing. Thanks for sharing
