Frangipani

Today is a very special day.

Thirty seven years ago today, in the dreamtime of my life, good fortune shined down upon me.






I have no idea which wedding anniversary that is and as I have no interest in precious stones or in jewellery I have decided that from this year on I will name our wedding anniversaries myself.

Consequently, this year, the 37th anniversary of my marriage to my beloved, will be our Frangipani Anniversary.

  1. Congratulations.
    I love the sound of frangipani, sadly, don't think I've ever smelled it.

    I've been trying to comment to you for two days, with no luck....

  2. Mona: thank you so much. I am going to Belmondo's wonderful store to buy a range of delicious goodies for dinner as we don't want to eat out.

  3. Meri; It certainly is a year of sweetness for me. I love my sweetie, and I love my sweet life. (And I love blogging - had you guessed?)

  4. Violet: Oh I am so glad to see you. I thought I had been blacklisted for bad taste in humour!

    What we call frangipani you call plumeria. Ours is deciduous, yours in Hawaii, evergreen. Both have a subtle moody perfume.

  5. What a relief to come home from the gym and find I do have blogging friends after all. I knew I had had visitors as I installed the meter to sample a weeks worth of activity on my blog. But I was becoming very despondent about having no-one at all want to talk to me. Oh Happy Days!

  8. Happy Anniversary! You are very very fortunate to be happily and enduringly married. My wife and I were married in 1974, so our 35th is coming up, but we lived together for three years before (does cohabitation count as marriage? I think not). Anyway, it's really nice to know there are other very happy married couples out there. May your marriage remain happy and fulfilling!
