Twenty years ago today I went to a good friend’s Christmas party and my life was transformed. I met a young man who had only just moved from Chesterfield to London. He was quiet and funny and clever and kind and although I’d like to be able to say that I recognised all this from that very first moment, it wasn’t until we both went to that same friend’s Christmas party three years later that I realised how very special he was.
We’ve now been together for seventeen very happy years, and married for seven of them. I don’t know where I would have been without him. Happy anniversary, my darling Big Dave. My hero, my husband, and love of my life.
