Today is our 9th wedding anniversary. It doesn't feel anything like that long!
I am married to probably the least romantic man in the world...We had a joke going between us for a long time, when anyone asked if Colm was romantic, I would turn to him and ask how often he had given me flowers and he would reply..."Twice"...I would ask how he could be so sure and he would say..."Because we have two children!"...The answer is still twice, I have not had flowers since Tadhg was born...nor a box of chocolates, nor jewellery, and certainly not any fancy underwear..(probably why I took up making my own!)
However....I did marry a man who makes me laugh daily...
Laughing nine years ago....
A couple of weeks ago....still laughing...
Not only does he make me laugh...
He treats me as his equal.
He helps me with the children as soon as he walks in the door.
He is generous.
He never argues.
He is extra kind when I am hormonal!
He makes me tea (or coffee depending on the time of day)
He tells me I look lovely when I get dressed up..(Hardly ever, but not his fault!)
He always backs me up when it comes to raising the children.
He tells me he loves me.
He kisses me goodnight every night.
He always kisses me goodbye. (even if someone sees him)
He is a great father.
He supports me no matter what.
And lots more besides...
He also wears things I make him and tells me they are great..
...that is truely romantic in my eyes...
I love you Darling...Happy Anniversary.
PS...the boxers are self draughted, copied from some of his own...definitely worth making, if only for the laugh you'll have when getting him to try them on for fitting purposes..this is best done before you add the elastic....for maximum laughter!
