Our 5th Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday my wife and I marked our 5th wedding anniversary. The time has gone by so quickly!

My wife prepared a most beautiful lunch of roast chicken and potatoes with gravy, which we eat on special occasions. I decided that we should dine out on our balcony. Despite 34C temperatures, our balcony fortunately sits in the shade during the day, and we had a fan placed nearby to blow welcome cool air over us.

I also printed out our wedding pictures from 5 years ago so we can put them into an album. Previously they have just been stored on cd, but they are so nice that I want them to be more accessible :)

And here are a few pictures from yesterday, 5 years on...



This great cake was made by our neighbour, Dora

  17. Firstly to my wife, thanks for marrying me; I love you!

    Thanks to everyone who has sent messages of congratulations. It has made my day even better!

    Josh, I guess you're referring to the last one of our wedding pictures, and not the dirty old apartment block you can see from our balcony?! It's the London England Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I would have had more pictures of it if it hadn't been undergoing cleaning at the time!
