20 YEARS !!

Just a brief post from me this week as I sit here nice and cosy in my winter woolens. Another snow storm has hit Nova Scotia today, sending down about 15cm's of snow this afternoon! I predict a day at home for the girls tomorrow, as the roads will be too dangerous for the buses to run.
This weekend it is an incredible 20 years since Craig and I set eyes on each other on board an overnight KLM flight from Cape Town to London on Jan 10th/11th 1989! I am a great believer in fate, since neither of us were looking for a serious relationship at the time. It was just meant to be that we were allocated seats beside each other for the duration of the journey. With Craig on his way to England for the first time on a visitors work permit to stay in a shared house in Clapham North (the dodgy end!). I lived south of the City in a village called Purley. Both of us worked long hours in downtown London so our dates were usually after work on a Friday, where we met up at a restaurant or club. On holiday in Greece in May Craig 'popped the question' and we were engaged on the romantic, unspoilt island of Poros. The rest is history as they say and our journey together so far has been exciting, emotional, sometimes stressful, but mostly loving and fun as we have moved from country to country with our two daughters'.
I can't imagine cramming as much into the next 20 years, but who knows?
