7th Wedding Anniversary

Happy Saturday everyone, just had to show you my suprises from hubby for our 7th anniversary!!! This is us on that magical day in Clearwater, Florida, our photographer was amazing, hired about 3 days before the wedding as Virgins photo package was awful, this firm were in Safety Harbour...........v.expensive but it is was our only chance to catch the special soppy do I sound & they were the only firm available at such short notice.....LOL.......good job I had our flexi friend to assist in an emergency!!!!

He suprised me with a hand made card.............yes, no help from at me at all, he designed it all him self, no sketch, no inspiration.........he's a natural don't ya think???? He must get it from his taleted mummy Fiona.

It has an acetate window & everything, he used 3 stamps of mine that have never ever seen ink........LOL. The flower is a Penny Black, the flower is Papermania & the Sentiment is from an SU SAB set. He coloured the flowers in Promarkers.........I think its a fab card don't you?

and a knock at the door........................

I never get flowers as the last time (about 8 years ago) I moaned about how much they had cost so he never bothered again.........until today...........I was a bit more grateful today....LOL, I still think flowers from florists are too expensive but these are beautiful & they sit lovely in my bay window and will hopefully last longer to as it is cool there.

The rest of the day was a bit of a nightmare........we were going shopping this morning & then to the German Market in Birmingham with my Brother & Sis this afternoon but we could not get our hands on OUR cash as Halifax were having technical probs as a result of the bad weather last night so shopping was abandoned. My mom lent us cash to go into Birmingham tho but after walking over a mile to the train station found the trains to Birmingham cancelled as someone had been hit by a awful!!!!
We ended up getting the bus and just sat in heavy traffic trying to get into Birmingham. Once there we could not move in the German Market........turns out the light switch on on the other side of town had been abandoned as someone had been stabbed and there was a bit of a fight from what I heard........shame as people were looking forward to seeing JLS & Sugababes.......well, all these dissapointed folk must all have been in that market!!!
We left after about 50 mins of being pushed & shoved but then could not get back on public transport......Trains to busy......buses all full......thank goodness for Taxi's that's all I can say!!!!
Anyway enough of my ranting I am off to bed as I still feel a bit poorly!!!
