In sickness and in health

It's our wedding anniversary this Sunday.

We don't do Valentines, but we definitely do wedding anniversaries. I still can't believe my luck in finding and marrying Husband, so love to celebrate each year. However, I have absolutely no idea what to buy Husband this weekend.

Year One: For out first anniversary, Husband made me (yes, made) a photo album, covered in the same material as my wedding dress and filled with our best wedding photos. (This was no mean feat, as I looked like Jo Brand in most of our photos).

Year Two: For the second year, I brought him dinner and a night in a superb hotel a few miles away.

Year Three: Tiffany earrings and a sexy number from Myla. (Can't remember what I got for Him, as all rational thought left my head as soon as I saw that white ribboned box).

Year Four: I brought him a digital key ring filled with photos from our life together. Ah, cute. (See Year One for similar comment about Jo Brand lookalike photos).

Year Five: We treated ourselves to a week's ski-ing. Child free.

And so, to Year Six. What to do...what to do? I've mentioned a double stacking cake carrier and he has dropped subtle hints about a cordless drill with built in spirit level.

God, why don't I just skip to suggesting a Stannah Stairlift and incontinence pants for him and a one way ticket to Switzerland for me?

Oooh! Ooooh! I know a perfect present! How about an Anne Summers fireman's outfit? What?

According to t'internet, the traditional gifts for the 6th year of marriage are candy and iron.

Can I take that to be you buy him chocolate (and then eat it) and he does the ironing?

PM - I really wish I hadn't told you that story.

Mud - why didn't I think of that? An excellent idea. Could even combine it with the fireman's outfit?!!

wow, you have done amazing gifts in the past...a cordless drill just doesn't seem as exciting does it?

For our 6th (iron) wedding anniversary I bought him an Iron Maiden CD and a cast iron Le Creuset casserole dish in the shape of a heart (don't laugh - they do make them!). I thought I was being clever, but neither got used....

The gifts you give each other are amazing - I don't think my hubby and I have ever been as inventive. One Christmas I got a deep fat fryer and it rankles even now.

What about one of those gifts that comes every month - wine, beer, chocolate etc?

I'm a male that enjoys your blog, is that wrong?!

Stairlifts are quite topical in my world this week, I'll explain later :-)

I'd suggest a slanket each in Howard & Hilda colours :-)
