Today, January 28th 2005, is truly a Glorious Day.
It is 38 years since Annikki and I got married in a small beautiful English town called Shrewsbury in Shropshire.
Sadly, we are barred from visiting that town by our local friends. When we visited there the last time, about 14 years ago, as we drove into the town, it was hit by an earthquake!! :-)
As my mother used to say, if I had been married to an Indian, I would have been thrown out on the streets a long long time ago. Annikki deserves that cup the my father used to say was his trophy for having been married to Ammachi for all their years together!!
And here is a recent photograph of us with 2 of our 3 grandchildren . Asha and Samu.
Annikki's mother is in her interval care in the Old People's Home. Mika is also at his 3 day a month interval care.
We were able to sleep late. We are looking forward to a day of shopping - Annikki as usual at the fleamarket, while I potter around a few shops - looking for nothing particular in mind as I have everything I need. After that we will choose to dine at some restaurant, one of the vast array of friends' restuarants to choose from - Chinese, Thai, Indian, Turkish, Greek, Mexican and, of course, Finnish. Depends on what we feel like in the evening. Maybe not Turkish, as we did that last year and maybe not Chinese as we did that the year before!!
Many thanks to all the rest of you who remembered us through emails on this great day.
As we enjoy another honeymoon year, it is on to the 39th!!!
