Last night, my wonderful husband cooked me a delicious dinner of homemade soup and shrimp curry and rice. We drank champagne and ate the piece of wedding cake that’s been in our freezer for a year.
As the first anniversary is “paper”, Mark presented me with a gift certificate for a massage and six - count’em - six anniversary cards replete with thoughtful, romantic well-chosen words. I gave Mark two (I was outdone!) cards and a gift certifcate I made myself, which Mark quickly exchanged for the Star Wars Trilogy DVD set I just happened to have wrapped up in my office. We then retired to the drawing room (ok, the ugly tv room) to watch the original Manchurian Candidate.
