You are supposed to get tin, lead or aluminium on your tenth wedding anniversary.
Are you serious?
I’ve been married ten years… ten long years, and all I get is a bit of worthless metal?? That can’t be right. Surely Not!
Ten years putting up with each other. Ten years of listening to each other talk, whinge, snore! Ten years of fighting over the doona, and negotiating who has rights over the remote control.
Ten years is a long time, and all you get is tin?
Somehow it doesn’t seem right!
Lucky for me in the last ten years I’ve gotten just a little more than that.
We’ve bought houses, and cars and furniture together. We’ve talked and argued and shared. We’ve been through super crappy sad things, really tough difficult things, and totally amazing wonderful things. We’ve travelled and made a home. We’ve had three (almost four) children. We’ve done so many things… so much more than any bit of tin, aluminium or lead could ever represent.
So I was pleased to get a bunch of roses (ten red ones for each year we’ve been married and four white ones for our children) and take out chinese for dinner on my tenth anniversary. Very pleased indeed.
I may refuse to friend him on facebook but I really do love him.

Congratulations! Glad you had a good day.
It’s out 11th anniversary on Sunday. Not sure what we are doing yet as I am out with the girls tomorrow night, and I think he has pool with the boys on Sunday.
We did have our first night away sans-Princess for our 10th anniversary. And what did we talk about all night? Yep. The Princess. *sigh* Not as bad as poor Nana who had to share her bed with her and was woken at 3am to go outside to look for bats and possums! Silly Nana!
Congratulation….yes tin is a bit of a let down…after all those years..
The flowers are gorgeous – he did well there! Congrats on your ten year anniversary. It’s ours next month too!
Congratulations on 10 years!
Congratulations on your 10th anniversary…we are headed for 14 this year, but I didn’t get tin for out 10th either :)
Nice milestone, congratulations! Our big ten is coming up later this year, doesn’t time pass so quickly? Love the red + white roses, that’s very sweet.
Awwww lovely. Congratulations
Oh, gorgeous! And Chinese fod as well.
Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate the first 10 years, and to begin the next ten (and then ten more again, a couple of times) ;)
he just talks about chicken guts on facebook anyway :))
Awwww, just lovely.
Happy anniversary. It sounded like a lovely one.
