Anniversary Flowers...for ME!

Today I was grumpy. After getting out of bed twice to answer the door..(I am not as they say a 'morning person') the door went a third time in the space of 30 mins. I was almost ready to combust! However, upon answering the door (still in my pj's of course), I was greeted by a lady with the most enormous bouquet of flowers I have ever seen...and they were for ME!!
Today marks the 5th anniversary of Gavin and I's engagement...he can be such a sweetie. He also had me made a special card and inside he wrote,

" Our wee story...6th February 2000 we first met,
7th November 2001 we became a proper couple,
12th August 2004 we got engaged.
The rest is still to be written..."

Can I just rub in how lucky I am once more?

The bouquet contained lilies, gladiolus, carnations, crysanthemums ,roses and had to split into 2 vases. The fragrance of the blooms fills the house.

Alas from me, the thoughtful hunk of gorgeousness got nothing (but my love). I may have to send out for a chinese takeaway tonight to relieve my guilt. They do say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach...let's hope it's true.

Not only did the flowers change from a grumpy mood (and I too am not a morning person) to one of sheer delight. 2 beautiful bouquets! He is definitely one of the good guys -- not just for the flowers but the note that came with them. Happy Anniversary!
