Happy Anniversary!

Today is our wedding anniversary. Well, one of them.

Like a lot of 'international couples' here in Japan, we have several. We had a wedding ceremony here in the July and then another one in the UK in September. Oh, but we were legally married in the June... On that day, I wasn't even there. I had signed the blank papers when I saw H the previous weekend, and then he filled in the rest and handed it all in while I was at work 100km away. He could have written anybody's name in the 'groom' section and I would have been married to them. Eek.

Anyway, whichever way you look at it, today is an anniversary of sorts, and the 10th one to boot. 10 years! According to British websites, it's the aluminium anniversary; several American sites I saw list 10 years as diamond. I wonder what this tells us about differences in spending habits between Americans and Brits - luxury jewellery versus roll of baking foil...

Not to outdone by that, I presented H with some chocolate and salami bought at the convenience store on the way back from taking K to preschool this morning. He, in turn, gave me a mole-bashing keyring. Cool.

Yes, the photos are rubbish, but look at that will you? I squashed that pesky mole and took a photo of it at the same time. I rock.

H and I did go out for a meal together in July, to celebrate 10th Anniversary Mark One. Just as well really, as H put K to bed 2 hours ago and fell asleep himself too...
