Re: How do you celebrate your wedding anniversaries?
We don't normally spalsh outtoo much. Iin teh early days we just nipped off for a night in a rustic B&B, to keep costs down.
For our 10th, I planned something special.
I came home at lunch time the day before, whilse my wife was at home with the 2 yr old - our youngest. I put them both in the car (wherein, unbeknownst to my wife were clothes, packed) - and drove down to my parents. Where we dropped off the toddler, and my father gave us a lift to the airport.
Basicallly, I kidnapped my wife and took her to Paris for a few days.
All her friends knew, so they blithely agreed to all the plans to meet for lunch, etc, knowing she wouldn't be there. My work knew. My parents knew (my mother came up to look after the children, bringing the toddler with, whilst friends picked up the older ones from school - so the school knew too ....)
I'd packed clothes she'd be happy to wear, but wouldn't notice were missing, booked flights, hotel, everything.
And she had no clue at all.
That remains the absolute pinacle of my romantic achievements!
Since then we tend to go for a weekend break somewhere we haven't been before - like Vienna, or Prague, or Berlin. Last time we decided we'd go skiing, and take the kids too, but it counted anyway.
After 16 years, it's easier to decide between us, than to spring surprises!
