The 28th of June is our silver wedding day. We are on vacation then, and celebrated yesterday with a garden party for friends and family. The westher has been cold and wet for a long time, and we said to ourselves many times during the last weeks that - better weather must come one day. But unfortunately, it has not come yet, so eysterday was just as cold and wet as every other day lately.
It didn't prevent us from celebrating though, and with a thick and warm wool sweather Terje could welcome the guests.
I had prepared food for a barbeque all day, and out in the carport the grills were ready. Though it was cold we think and hope the guests enjoyed themselves. And of course they were also able to enjoy the food inside the house.
We had planned alot of garden games for the party. The adults wanted to stay indoors enjoying themselves, but the kids never mind the weather and had alot of fun. Terje had mowed the grass the day before, so after the party there were grass everywhere. Terje is busy vacuming the whole house today.
One of the wonderful bonuses of celebrating a silver wedding is the gifts. Our guests really were the best. and as the silver bride I had a perfect time opening the gifts. Terje and I had planned not to give gifts to each other right now. OUr BIG gift will be a week in Venedig in September. Still he had bought me the most perfect gold necklace with two hearts. I love it.
Well, our vacation has started. Tomorrow we are driving south. First we'll stay a week in Norway, then we'll fly down to Malta for another week. So it might be some time untill I'm back here. Will bring a laptop, but don't know if there will be much time to use it.
