Many thanks to everyone who wished me and huntingospray a happy wedding anniversary! Will admit, it wasn't the most exciting of wedding anniversaries in the world - Sarah was late home from work (indeed, I ended up picking her up from town because the coach she was on had prematurely terminated in the town centre instead of coming up to near us like it normally does, otherwise she'd have been considerably later), and by the time she got home she was in the mood for nothing much more than sleep. Still, she liked the present I got her (a Welsh Lovespoon, on the basis that the 5th anniversary is symbolised by wood), despite it not being a particularly practical present (Sarah is a very practical person, y'see). I much appreciated the present she got me - on our honeymoon in Egypt, we bought a pair of matching ankhs, which we then got engraved, mine with her name and hers with my name; we then bought silver chains for them so we could wear them as necklaces; then after I lost my wedding ring because it slipped off my finger when I was out, the replacement had the opposite problem - it was too darned tight to get on my finger in the first place, and when it could get on the finger it was too tight to be comfortable, so it too ended up on the necklace; unfortunately a few months ago, the chain broke, so Sarah's anniversary present to me was a replacement chain. Given that although the traditional gift for the fifth anniversary is wood, but the "suggested modern gift" (as suggested by "librarians at Chicago Public Library," no less) is "silverware," that kind of almost works, really..!
The car's in for servicing tomorrow, but I'm kind of hoping that whenever it's done, we might be able to pop out for a meal together somewhere...
