It was nineteen years ago today..............

............ since Nigel and I stood in the Registry Office in Skipton and promised that, in sickness and in health, for better for worse, for richer for poorer til death do us part, we would be there for each other always



We then moved onto the beautiful priory church at Bolton Abbey to have our marriage blessed in front of as many of our family and friends as could make it on that chilly grey January day



Sadly those times were pre-digital cameras, at least in our house anyway, so I have no photos to hand - our wedding album and any framed photos are still in boxes since our move here five plus years ago so I can't even scan anything to show you - maybe I'll dig them out and scan them in for our twentieth next year



You will have to make do with a much more recent photo of us with wrinkles and extra pounds a plenty



We've gone through lean and more affluent times, had our ups and downs, supported each other through serious illness and redundancies but somehow I feel that our love has grown and deepened with each passing year



To my darling Nigel I'll give you the cue for a song






You're the best thing that ever happened to me.......................

Congratulations to you both. I wish you many many more happy years.

So you came from Skipton? Strangely I know someone who lives there now. ( and is on my list of blogs I follow ).
The family that just had the Wedding in NZ ( see my blog )originally came from Nelson/Burnley. On Saturday I was talking to guests who still live in that area and are returning home to UK today. What a small world.
