24 years of doom

Little did Mrs H know, way back in 1992, that she was doomed to spend the next 24 years married to me. It says a lot for her sheer bloody mindedness that she’s still hanging in there, or it could be that she knows when she’s on to a good thing.

After all, how many husbands would take a day off work, and jump on a 26 bus to the Toby Carvery for an all you can eat six quid buffet AND offer to pony up the extra 30 bob for a King Size. That woman’s got it made.

I’ve even offered to take her back next year for our silver wedding and splash out on a pudding.

Happy Wedding Anniversary, Mum & Dad

It was 53 years ago today that Grace Muir Robinson married Alexander Walker Hamilton.

Of course, they’re both dead, but that doesn’t mean I won’t raise a glass.

Here are my Mum and Dad on their wedding day, 3rd March 1961 at the Ettrick Lodge Hotel in Edinburgh. A bit of a family mystery, but none of my Mums family were there, and some didn’t find out till well after the event. Relatives may enquire as to my theory. Pictured, left to right are Aunt Cath Muirhead, (not a real aunt), her husband, Molly (my Dads sister), Dad, Mum, Betty Kelly (later Betty Graham) who was matron of honour, and my Uncle Phil (not a real uncle) McCluskey, the best man.
