Golden weddings!

30 comments


I wonder how many of you have celebrated 50 years of marriage?


Both Meadowland and I have our Golden anniversaries this month . . .


. . . she and her husband are going to Devon, while OH and I are going to hire a little boat on the river and then have a pub lunch.

I’d quite like to be back in the British Virgin Islands though :)

It would be great to hear stories from all of you who have passed this amazing milestone!

Many thanks Eileen.

Wow, Shirley, congratulations - that really is an awesome achievement. How did you celebrate?

Sheila, Ruby is 40 years, still 10 away from you! Perhaps you are thinking of Diamond (60) ?

We had a lovely meal out in Arundel with our family.

Hope you all have a lovely celebration on the day.

Lol Sheila, I have Aug 24th on the calendar to make sure we remember (you mentioned it last year) but you have
pre-empted me! Congratulations to both of you. Ours is this year too but not until December.

Wow Stera, did I really? I'm blushing now! That is so efficient of you - thank you for your thoughtfulness :)) What is the date of yours in December?

Many thanks Feverfew, Paul, Karen, Chris, and of course Sue. And apologies to Shirley - maths was never my strong point :(

No worries Sheila ... we also went to Chichester Festival Theatre last week ... tickets were a surprise gift from family!

6 Aug, 2018

 

Congrats both, mine will be 30 in October, my mom and dad had their 50th in 2014 we all went to Weymouth to celebrate, we are going to see ELO in concert so far not sure what else yet 😃

I'm usually much better at forgetting than remembering Sjeila, hence putting it on the calender. You just let it drop when you did a blog about your 49th...
Since you , will be 14th Dec. but we have no plans at all up to now. We aren't very good at anniversaries...

7 Aug, 2018

 

Sue, we rarely do anything either! But I remember wanting to mark our silver (25 years?), so persuaded OH to come to the Edinburgh Festival with me - great fun. You’ll have to think of something to mark your special day . . .

7 Aug, 2018

 

We are exactly the same... Only this year is a little different..... Most people I know have 'downsized' their anniversaries.

7 Aug, 2018

 

Congratulations Sheilabub and Meadowland on your 50th anniversary.It is ours in November,do you feel like me and wonder where all those years have gone.Hope you both enjoy your day and very best wishes from me.

8 Aug, 2018

 

Gosh, there are enough of us for a Goy golden wedding party!

8 Aug, 2018

 

Thank you Callie, and congratulations to you too. Yes, I can hardly believe where the years have gone!

Where shall we have the party Sue?!

8 Aug, 2018

 

Thank you from me too Callie..... Let's do a river ride, all those celebrating their 50th.

8 Aug, 2018

 

We celebrated 51yrs on July 1st, last year we were in The Lake District for our golden anniversary and it was perfect, we have never made a big thing about anniversaries, we did have a family party, the kids surprised us, with some wonderful gifts amongst which were tickets for Neil Diamonds 50th Anniversary World Tour, it was fabulous, so pleased we went as he had to cancel towards the end due to ill health and won't be able to tour again.....

12 Aug, 2018

 

Congratulations! ! We make 43yrs this year, so not quite there yet. Hope you enjoyed your day.

12 Aug, 2018

 

Congratulations Sue - how lovely to have your family so involved. We’ve never made much of anniversaries either, in fact I’ve just informed our boys! (Though on our 20th, I was having coffee with friends in town, when a florist appeared, asked my name, and then proffered a huge bouquet of roses. My friends were deeply impressed!)

Thank you Julia, we’ll enjoy our little boat ride on the day, I’m sure, followed by a pub lunch. Can’t go away as OH is waiting for a bypass op.

12 Aug, 2018

 

Party Sheila? Gloucester is about half way, lol..(never been there) Not really practical though is it- too far for everyone to come. And my health is so unpredictable I might not make it at the last minute - horrors! Hope you enjoy your boat trip and will try to order some sunshine for you. Also hope your OH doesn't have to wait too long for his op and that it all goes according to plan. Best wishes to both of you.

13 Aug, 2018

 

You're right Sue - too impracticable. Sorry to hear about your health though.

Thank you for the good wishes and your offer of sunshine!

13 Aug, 2018

 

Hope all goes well with your OH's bypass. I know only too well about putting your life on hold for a while.

13 Aug, 2018

 

That's a very kind thought, Julia, thank you. Yes, you know exactly what it's like - trying not to worry!

13 Aug, 2018

 

I'm sure all will be fine xx

14 Aug, 2018

 

Congratulations.
We've got to 48 this year and we might get to 50 if he continues to do as I tell him. Lol....

Well done Sheila, and well said!
