>Twenty five years ago

>I couldn’t let today go by without a spot of … nostalgia …

Twenty-five years ago today I married my first husband, Brian. We married at St Nicholas Church in Elmdon Park, Solihull. Lindsay and Andrea were bridesmaids in peach, Neil was best man in silvery grey, my sister was heavy withchild, our grandma was still with us. I wore a borrowed dress in white meringue … and Dad hired a vintage car.

We were young, we were playing house. He decided he wanted kids, I never had and never would. After 3 years we parted. I think he found happiness, I think he had kids, I think they’re still together.

It could’ve been my silver wedding anniversary today. That’s actually quite a scary thought.

No regrets.

Thanks to Nidge for the timely reminder on Live Aid day.

    >Everyones happy, how it should be. I love that church, interesting history surrounding it and Elmdon Hall that once stood nearby. Went for a walk recently around the graveyard there (always fanscinates me) and found a couple of Battle of Britain figher pilots who gave their lives, their graves were really untidy so did my good deed for the day. White meringue…sorry all I've got in my mind is my favourite tea house in Truro with a big plate of it and a huge helping of clotted cream…sorry…I'm hungry

    >Nidge: Yup, it's a great church. Many a long summer afternoon was spent exploring when we were kids.

    >Toni: I don't really have that many memories, it was such a short time and so long ago.
