DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER .......... OR NOT !!!





The 3rd of J uly is our wedding anniversary.  This year we have been married for 43 years and engaged for a bit longer and the diamond fell out of my engagement ring !!! 


When I say diamond, it's the smallest diamond you ever did see. We bought it from an antique shop and it cost £15.00, that's 16.7 Euros, or $18.7 !!!  .... but I would never change it.


I didn't notice it was missing until the evening so it wasn't worth looking for it, it being so small ... it could have been anywhere and, even if I knew where it had fallen, I would never have seen it !!!  


The diamond has now been replaced at the local jewellers ..... Mr Home picked it up ..... he said he needed security to accompany him home !!!
The above book is an Angela Brazil ..... its called ' The Jolliest Term on Record ' ..... all jolly hockey sticks and fruitcake in the dorm ! I read a lot of them as a child .... a far cry from my schooldays !


The Kiftsgate rose that grows in our garden .... it only flowers once in June but it is so pretty and the perfume is wonderful.



..... and this is Penny Lane. A fragrant, climber that was rose of the year in 1998 ..... repeat flowering, it flowers well into October. 

Rings and roses ..... ring a ring a roses

  1. I imagine there must be a lot of diamonds lying around. Both my mother and her sister lost entire rings whilst swimming in the sea. Beachcombers must find loads of them.

  2. First dear Jackie, belated anniversary best wishes - you've ten more to catch up with us, haha!
    I didn't have a diamond until about 20 years ago - and it's still apparently secure in it's simple setting. Insured, but wasn't a ridiculous price, might cost more these days. It's not huge, just over 1/2 carat and oval so quite lovely and I hope I never lose it. Lovely that Mr. Home replaced yours - the setting is so pretty, and I love your wedding band with it. Keep them safe for all the years to come my dear!

    Beautiful roses - mine are not so good this year and doing strange things in this weather. My lovely Peace hybrid which always stayed about 24" tall and bloomed well now and then, has suddenly become a climber on the front porch, branching out with 6 ft. long stems but not a single flower! I guess I'll just cut it back and see what happens later.

    I envy you with no biting mozzies - they make my life miserable at this time of year!
    Have a lovely summer. These photos are beautiful.

    1. I love my ring .... I’m not bothered about anything expensive or showy. It’s the meaning behind it that’s important. I’m not much of a jewellery person.... just my silver Afghanistan bracelets and my silver cross that I bought when I was a teenager from Chelsea Girl !!!! I wear them every day ! Roses seem to have good and bad years don’t they ? It’s a really good year for them in my garden this year and, although my garden faces North, they seem to do rather well.
      Take care Mary and try to avoid those mossies. XXXX

  7. 43 years!! You were a child bride, obviously, Jackie!!! Mr P & I passed our 22nd last week, so we're just a young couple starting out, haha!

    Doesn't everyone dream of finding some lost diamond under floorboards when they renovate a home? How lovely that you can remember all the details about your ring but funny you didn't notice its loss. I've only stopped wearing mine while doing heavy duty chores this past handful of years. It never used to come off, except for cleaning, so it was a miracle really nothing happened to it with all the years of gardening and home renovating!...Love your pics, too! XX

  13. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary and on being such a pair of old romantics! We were burgled last year while out visiting friends and four generations of family jewellery, including my Victorian five stone opal engagement ring were taken. Strangely, that day I had chosen to wear my mother's diamond engagement ring instead of my own. It had cost my father a lot of money as a young man. Although I morn the loss of my own ring I'm so happy to still have a tangible link to my parents. (We've since updated our security system and safe!)

  15. Well, I'm a bit late to this party, am I not! 43 years. How wonderful, J. This is proof that if people work at a relationship it will survive. My daughter is getting her 2nd divorce, a very angry divorce, with a 6-year old involved. Neither one of them tried to make it work, because it was not a good match from the beginning. I congratulate you and Mr. Home !!! And, I LOVE you X10.

  18. These external parties — bloggers, for example — generate internet traffic for the products or services of a company paying for that service. Also, for discerning business owners and tight-fisted marketing budgets, there's a world of opportunities on top of Facebook Ads and Google AdWords that you should consider. Bottom Line: If you have some budget to dedicate towards PPC campaigns, it's worth giving it a try in the right circumstances. You can create reviews and compare affiliate products to provide more value to your readers. Channel Goals: To drive website traffic through brand awareness with campaigns promoting specific content pieces as well as products and services. Also you may have mentioned it above but what is the name of the plugin that will seek out affiliate links and automatically create them as you type or something like that LOL. https://www.reviewengin.com/overnight-freedom-review/
