Unbelievably CK and I are now very definitely into our second decade of
Whichever timezone you reside in February 22 is very definitely or very nearly over and so is our anniversary. In the years since that hot afternoon by the Yarra he has lost even more hair colour and a moustache while I have gained the odd ounce and we are both now the proud possessors of an extra dog and two growing children.
Usually this day is given the same in depth level of attention and care as Valentine's Day. As in we kind of remember a day or so after, which is kind of funny b/c we chose 22/02 as CK was more likely to remember such a date. Truth be told he is usually the one who clocks it first.
Unlike most years it has coincided with half term and he has most of this week off so we went out for lunch today. Yes, sounds good huh? A romantic lunch looking over the very pretty local vistas you may be thinking but no. A cramped table for four with wooden bench seats at the local greasy spoon was our lunch place today. But the kids had fun and surely that is all that matters, right? Right?!

Now I am not a heels kind of gal (Moogsmum may kindly attest to this) but good grief!! look at these! And they are kind of comfy (in a 'don't make em wear these too long' kind of way). *sigh*
And best bit? CK said he would buy them as an anniversary present. Generous huh? Well only kind of b/c it is a joint account but I appreciated the thought.
I am off now to open the chilled bottle of champagne we were given for Christmas.
