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
