The 26th October was our Silver Wedding Anniversary and as we weren't having a party I made my own cake to share with the people who mattered. Of course I also made a card for my dear hubby.
The cake was a 10" Madeira Sponge sandwiched with Vanilla Buttercream & Strawberry Jam.
My Mother & Step Father came down to celebrate with us and we had a lovely meal at Parkers in Clonmel. The food and service were outstanding. My Mother had gone in the previous day and dropped in a couple of banners and a balloon, so when we arrived on the night, the banners were up on the wall behind us and the balloon on the table - it was a lovely surprises !!!
It was a lovely day and evening and that was all down the efforts of my Mother & Step Father and us of course.
Now to Disappointment......... Not one family member on either side bothered to send a card or pick up the phone to congratulate us. Now correct me if I am wrong but I think 25yrs of marriage is something to be celebrated, especially in this day & age where many don't last 5yrs let alone 25yrs.
