Mourning Has Broken

It's our wedding anniversary today. 12 years ago Princess Diana was laid to rest and Britain observed a national day of mourning. Scene stealer.

I'm sure many of you have woken up on your anniversary to roses, cards, jewelery. Perhaps a fresh cup of coffee.

I woke up this morning to find that Anna's giant metallic Thomas the Tank Engine balloon had migrated up the stairs, along the landing, coming to rest directly above my pillow. His giant moon-face hovering above me at 6am.

That'll wake you up in a hurry.

That is really funny.

Happy Anniversary honey. At least YOU don't have to show up at a funeral today like we did on ours.. LAST week. Talk about a mood smasher. The hot/reverent little black dress I wore..did NOTHING. But this is ABOUT you. I hope for both your sakes that hubs does the RIGHT thing and sends out for pizza to celebrate your special day. Who needs date night when you can untie the Thomas balloon and suck in the helium? All the best and MANY more.

Last time one of those did that in our house, it set off the motion detector and the police arrived.
Happy Anniversary.

She was a bit of a limelight hogging Sloane.

Happy anniversary. Hope you got over the scary faced Thomas thing. That looks a bit too much like the scary baby from Trainspotting (or is it just me?).
