Breakfast, Linden Lea and scissors.

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.


  1. I can't believe it's been a whole year already. And yet you and Nick seem to have been together for so much longer. I'm so glad we were there at the beginning and can claim a little credit :-)

  2. Congratulations to you two - I can't tell you how happy and proud it makes me feel to know we played a small part in bringing you together.

  3. Now it seems odd to think I had a life without Nick. And I was thinking of all the tiny choices I made that caused me to meet him -- it makes my head whirl.
