25 years ago today (at High Noon!) Cathy and I were married in a lovely ceremony at Gretna Green in Scotland. It was a lovely day and we travelled up there from Durham leaving the snow and cold weather behind us and arriving (almost late!) in brilliant sunshine.
A lot has happened since then, some good and some bad, but we are still together and looking forward to the next 25 years now.
We have been thinking about our witnesses and wondering what became of them, whilst we are in touch with one of them, unfortunately we lost touch with the others and haven’t seen them for many years!
At the time we used to listen to Alan Robson and his Night Owls programme on Metro Radio and I remember the ‘shout out he gave us on his show the night before. He announced to all listeners that we were ‘off up to Gretna for a quick bang on the anvil‘ – we have smiled at that phrase many times since then.
… and to think certain people said we wouldn’t last 6 months!
