I did remember today that, tomorrow, Marie and I will have been married for thirty one years. A long time. That's good for a man I'm told. Remembering that is!
We've always had a pragmatic approach to gifts. One Christmas I brought her half a dish washer. She brought me the other half.
For our anniversary this year I wanted a book on criminals (I just can't read novels) and she wanted a pair of binoculars for our South Africa trip in October. We got neither after spending several hours in Cardiff shops.
Marie did buy a door mat though. It wasn't an anniversary treat.
supremely and ardently solicitous
