Today, being Tim and Rachel's first anniversary, it is a year since I met Nick, who in his own well-ordered way has turned my life upside down.
1. Spreading Marmite on toast for Nick. I spend more nights at his house than he does at mine, so usually it's him making breakfast for me.
2. We go to a concert in the lovely Church of King Charles The Martyr. They sing Vaughn Williams' Linden Lea, which makes me feel as if I've made the right choice in my life with regards to not dreading 'peevish masters'.
3. Nick sits me down on the sofa and presents me with a beautiful pair of embroidery scissors -- here's a man who has been paying attention, because only a couple of weeks ago I bored him rigid with a Maison Sajou embroidery catalogue. He laughs when I solemnly hand him a penny to make it a purchase, rather than a bladed gift that might cut our love.
