Happy Anniversary!

"Those who in July do wed must labour for their daily bread"

Today i am celebrating three years of wedded bliss and sometimes Hell. Yes three years ago today we declared to forsake all other and be Husband and Wife forever till death us do part....yikes put like that it's a wonder we've even made it so far. Having reached the seven year itch mark in our relationship we decided with sheer defiance to get married instead of itching the proverbial scratch.

The wedding took place in Florida at the beautiful celebration golf course, with a select number of close family and friends. The weather was glorious and in the end it turned out to be a lovely day, although me being the queen of drama it did not go without a hitch or ten. Firstly the hairdresser was hopeless and after three failed attempts at getting my hair right i had to settle for an awful up do that did me absolutely no favours, a few tears were shed but i got over it until me and my Mother in law were left stranded at the hairdressers by a taxi firm.

Fortunately my guardian angel was looking out for me that day and with the help of a complete stranger who worked at the local Wal-Mart i arrived back to the villa with only eight minutes to spare. I had to get my dress and make up on and have pictures taken in under ten minutes but we all made it in the end.

After our Al fresco ceremony we headed straight back to the luxury rented Villa and consummated our marriage in under five minutes while waiting for our guests to arrive, we then spent the rest of the afternoon splashing in the pool. In the evening we all went for a lovely slap up meal and then spent the remaining week of our holiday traipsing around various Disney parks in horrendous heat. All is well that ends well.......i think.
