Welcome to my new blog! I think you’ll agree it is just as pretty and useful as its owner!
The first item of newsworthiness I have to report is of course that I am now a wedded gent. I know, I feel strange even saying that! Marriage has always, in the past, been something that belonged to people older than me, even when it was refering to people younger than me. In much the same way that anyone with children, anyone who has a higher position at work, or anybody with a house is automatically older than me, regardless of whether this is true or not.
Jen and I have been together eleven years, and we decided to “en-wed” on our tenth anniversary. For me, getting married is not about changing our relationship, but about a chance to celebrate it with the people we love. As I said at the wedding, the people who surround us influence who we become, and so if we are able to be part of a loving, stable relationship, that’s a reflection on the love and generosity that we are surrounded with.
Anyway, we got married in the backyard of a B&B in Montville, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. It was beautiful, and neither of us could imagine anything going any better than it did. Even the unscheduled, impromptu visit by a local cat added to the day! Everyone who was there told us the ceremony felt sincere and heartfelt, which is what we wanted, while also working in the requisite Bon Jovi references just to stop things getting, you know, classy.
Anyway, I am now a husband!
And so we have started new blogs to go with our new life.
We will also be looking to purchase matching tracksuits. I think that’s what you have to do.
