And they said it wouldn’t last!

Hubby and I have just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. Here we are still crazy in love thanks to snapchat!

alison

I met Mark when I was 16. He was my friend’s brother’s friend. He came to my door to pick up my friend for her brother and BOOM!!! It was literally love at first sight (for me – took him a few more weeks 🙂 ). I knew the day I met him I was going to marry him. So I just smile and nod and pity people who tell me that I write “fairytales” because there’s no such as love at first sight because I live it everyday!

Our first wedding anniversary we spent in Liverpool, in England. 26 years later we stayed a little closer to home and decided to go away for the night, just to a local mountain lodge only about 15 minutes away. It was lovely…such a beautiful view.

 

And yes….pretty drinks  🙂

We were even spoilt with 2 beds!

alison5

I won’t tell you what my husband’s suggestion was regarding our bed choices. I’m sure if you have a partner whose mind works in a similar way to mine, you’ll know….

So, now I want to know how long you’ve been with your husband/boyfriend/partner? Or what’s the longest you’ve been in a relationship? How did you meet and was it love at first sight? Or did things take a little longer?

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Red Nose Day Actually by Amy Andrews

I am beside myself with joy to learn that the cast and writer from Love Actually are finally bringing us a sequel after 14 long years!

It’s only ten minutes long and its being done as the chief fundraiser for Red Nose Day (how awesome is that???) but I’ll take any extra bits from one of my all time favourite films!

I’m not sure which stories can be covered in only ten minutes but I really, really hope we see these few get a resolution.

This Laura Linney storyline broke my heart and I still get teary whenever I think about it. I hope she’s bonking that hot engineer like crazy!

 

I’d love for these two to have gotten together. Yes, I know she’s married to his best friend. But I’m sorry, his best friend is a jerk and Mark deserves her more.

 

I’d love to know what happened with his guy long term – I’d like to think he’s still living in polygamy heaven with his American chicks.

 

Of course, we’ll never get a resolution to this heartbreaking storyline either with the death of Alan Rickman last year. Emma Thompson was so gut wrenching in this scene but I have to admit to feeling for both of them.

 

What about you? Do you have a favourite couple from this iconic movie? And do you agree with me or not about the Peter/Juliet/Mark love triangle?
