Today

It's our 36th wedding anniversary today.  Hanno and I were married in Hamburg in 1979 and all these years later, we're still going strong.


This is what I'll be doing for the next couple of days. I'm reading the book for the last time before it goes to print on Thursday. I'll be back when I'm finished so please come back and find me later in the week.  I'll be here waiting for you.  ♥︎

  10. Happy anniversary! And happy page proofs too. I love page proofs--it's always the first time a book starts to feel like...a real book. (Okay, that sounds silly, but hopefully you understand what I mean.)

    1. Gail, I don't think we had any photos taken at the wedding. It was a civil ceremony in the local Rathaus. Hanno's sister was there, and our upstairs neighbours - they were German but met on the Gold Coast! I had to have someone as my witness who spoke both English and German. Later we had a party with family and friends at our flat. I don't think we have any surviving photos of that either. I'll have a look when I have time. It seems incredible today when photos are such a part of daily life but back then they weren't,

  47. Congratulations on 36 happy years together! The good times and bad times forge a strong relationship don´t they? At the end of next year we hit 40 years together. Amazing! The years have flown by.
    Yesterday was a happy day for me. My daughter and I had a rare day together, exchanging news, laughing, looking for mushrooms in the woods. A perfect day rounded off by my handing over of a copy of your book. My two daughters-in-love have also received their copies. I am hoping they will find as much inspiration as I have as a long-standing blog follower.

    Best wishes from Uppsala/Sweden where autumn is approaching fast and offering us one of those perfect days today.
