Candles and Cocktails.

Today marks our 13th Wedding Anniversary.

We booked a babysitter for last night so we could celebrate child free at a local restaurant. A few days later an invitation arrived in our letterbox for a friends party on the same night. We abandoned all thoughts of the restaurant and I went shopping for a dress and sparkly high heels.

With Gareth under the weather we had a real dilemma. To go or not to go? I rang our babysitter and talked to her. We agreed a plan. She arrived as planned and we went out leaving a cozy pj-wearing Gar curled up on the sofa watching a film. I agreed not to drink so that I could be home within 15 minutes of a phone call if needed.

We had a wonderful night. Dancing, mingling, laughing. Byron had an amazing selection of drinks in his hand over the evening. Champagne and cocktails of every colour under the rainbow. I was happy to have one glass of bubbly as we arrived but stuck to non-alcoholic for the rest of the evening. The phone didn't ring. We got home in the early hours of the morning to a quiet house with sleeping children. It was a lovely start to our Wedding Anniversary celebrations!
