Ten years ago today, and today [May. 17th, 2007|06:29 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Ten years ago today, 17th May 1997, was the day that I got married to Anne.

Accordingly, I wasn't looking forward to today much.

However, I've spent the day in Dorset with watervole and waveney, pottering about near Chesil Beach and The Fleet, and waiting patiently while they coo over other people's vegetable patches. waveney, a keen birdwatcher, broke his glasses early in the day, so there was a lot of "can you see the skylark?"/"no" going on. Nevertheless, he got to see some skylarks, together with shelducks, whimbrels, something that could have been either a cormorant or a shag, and various other things I fail to recall. We're back at their house now, and shortly he's going to go and cook something, probably involving vegetables and cheese.

So the day's been a great deal less awful than it might have been.

My thoughts were with you. I'm glad today was not too bad. Snuggles.

Next spring will be the 25th anniversary of my first wedding - even after we divorced, we agreed we'd get together and have a party. It's going to be a difficult time, I don't even know where they buried him, or what they did. I'm glad you had a productive day.

Anniversaries can bite you on the nose when you are least expecting them to. I'm glad you had good friends with whom to see this one through.
