Sam Sunday #24: Anniversary Edition


My summer holiday is finally here!  I finished up work on Wednesday and then Saturday was our second wedding anniversary.  Time passes strangely because it feels like it was only yesterday that we got married but also like we've been married forever.  Although we exchanged cards and went out for a meal, we haven't made a big thing out of it this year because in autumn we have a bigger 'anniversary' coming up; at the end of September we will have been together for ten years.

Saturday was a busy day anyway; my sister turns 30 on Tuesday so she had her party yesterday, at a lovely country pub.  There were lots of friends and family there so I'm sure that she had a great time.  Tomorrow is my Mum's birthday (the end of July is a busy time for my family!), so we're taking her out for a meal at one of her favourite restaurants.

Today I've been having a bit of a tidy up.  I spent Thursday and Friday relaxing (and reading a lot) so today I was ready to make the house look somewhat presentable again.  We were both so busy at the end of term that standards definitely started to slip! Now I'm going to be spending more time at home over the next six weeks, I want it to be cosy rather than messy!  I can not wait for the main bedroom to be finished so we can finally move back in there and not have random bedroom stuff everywhere.

Now that I am on holiday, I'm looking forward to spending more time reading and blogging.  I've got a backlog of three reviews to clear next week and then I'll be caught up again.  

This week, I've been reading:

  2. Congratulations, Sam! We went out for meals on our first and second anniversaries but with the advent of children that sort of fell by he wayside until this year when we celebrated our 15th by actually getting out the door for a meal on our own! Enjoy your break, I used to relish time off as a teacher.

  3. Congrats on your anniversary! My husband and I were also together 8 years when we got married. We didn't have a real wedding and celebrate the anniversary of our first date instead. And I know exactly what you mean by the time flying but also feeling like you've been together forever. Isn't it funny?

    1. Thank you. It's good to meet another couple that waited as long as we did, we waited until the time was right with school and our jobs and finances etc. I did get fed up of people asking when we were going to get married!

    1. Thanks Daisy :) I was definitely happy in the picture!
      Having the time to relax is awesome, but it's taking a bit of getting used to. Mi need to kick back and really settle into a slower pace of life.

  6. Happy anniversary! Also, congrats on the 10 year mark as well. We just passed the 8 year mark so it's strange to tell people we've been married only 4 years.

    1. I think it's no bad thing to date for a long time before getting married, in our case we were very young when we met so we had to finish school, uni and job things first!
