is our 29th Anniversary.
Yes, Mrs RC and I have been together for 29 years, and married for 13 of those years.
Yes it was a long engagement, but not wasted - during that time we had four wonderful children!
During these years we have had many great times. We have also had some terrible times, but have stuck together through it all and are stronger than ever for it. We have never blamed each other for things that have gone wrong, but have pulled together to get through.
Mrs RC posted on Facebook about a drink of water that I am still paying for. On the evening when we started seeing each other, we were at a friend's place. He had made one of his signiture very hot curries, and Mrs RC had a large glass of water. I asked for some of the water, but as she handed me the glass she said "It will cost you." Apparently I have still not finished paying for it! Another 10 years at least, she says! (Modern day slavery? :-) ) Not that I am complaining, we have a great life together. Our relationship seems to be like a good wine or whisky, getting even better with age...
I have a day off tomorrow, so we will be getting some time together before I head off to collect Number One Son from Uni on Saturday. Everyone will be at home for the summer again - can't wait!
