8 years ago...

on the 23rd of December 2000, i married my dreamboat, mister micky moo! just over 50 of our closest family and friends joined us in a very personal ceremony at micks family home. each and every person that helped celebrate that day still mean so much to us and their support, friendship and love keeps our marriage strong.
the problem with blogging is that once you really get into it every moment in life is blog worthy! so here i am last night making mick take photos of his wrapped present to me and i of his, crazy i know! he certainly thought so, he thinks i should take photos of him cutting his toe nails or washing the dishes... 'blog that!' he says. anyhoo, below are the before and after shots, you will be blown away with his present for me, i was. i really wanted to get him a pancake maker (8 years is the year of electrical appliances) but he was equally happy with my final choice.
this is my present to mick
this is micks present to me
here is micks present, we thoroughly enjoy fawlty towers and often quote his shows in our daily life. you will often hear lili saying 'basil, basil, basil or oh i know' in that great cybil voice! mick randomly says 'eating the nuts if you please', there are so many more, life in the bonser house is always entertaining *_*
check out my present!!!!!!!! can you believe it????? what an absolutely thoughtful and amazing gift, i just adore him for getting me what is really on my wish list. it comes with the promise that i will actually make something from it this holiday. i will have to blog some photos from it another day.
i was scouring around for a photo of mick and i together and realise that we just don't ever get our photo taken together. (note to self, when dressed and looking 'pretty' these next few nights take photo with hubby) the photo below is one and a half years old, so add a few kilos and a few wrinkles and it is accurate enough.
this photo was taken at Claudia's christening July 2007. i love mick so very much, my life really is wonderful.
now i would like to play a little game with you, our wedding waltz song was 'lets stay together' by Al green. i would be very interested to know what your wedding waltz song was or if you aren't married yet what you think you might have as a wedding song.
before i go i want to give a little plug to my niece's blog, she has just started and i am sure she would love some visitors. visit her here at natas little place.
OK kids off to do some more Christmas preparations can you believe that i have not yet wrapped any presents!!!!?????? i cant even remember what we have bought the children #*_*#

Hey Rosie! My beloved does a lot of 'nod, smile, don't alarm the crazy lady' as I take photos of peculiar things for my blog - so Mick is in fine company!! We didn't have a wedding waltz, but I walked down the 'isle' (got married in a park, so not really an isle to walk down!!) to Bryan Adams' song from Robin Hood "Everything I Do, I Do It For You" - this was 'our' song. Then walked back up the isle-that-wasn't-an-isle to Dragon's "Celebrate". Got lots of laughs with this one, but it seemed appropriate to us! Tee! Hee! Hee! 16 and a half years later, we still like each other, so we must have started out OK!! Happy anniversary, May there be many more to celebrate and Happy Christmas! Bear Hugs! KRIS
