24 Years

Earlier this week my Husband and I celebrated 24 wonderful years of marriage.  We met 26 years ago quite by chance, we were both doing a favour for different friends, otherwise we wouldn't have been at the same place on that day.  It was obviously meant to be. :)
Each year I like to cook a special meal and bake a cake for our anniversary.  I have been watching Fiona Cairns baking series on television and decided to bake her Beetroot and Chocolate Cake.  It was very easy to make and turned out chocolatey and moist, but we decided that we didn't really like the beetroot taste so I won't make it again.
My poor Husband is looking worn out in that photo - it isn't 24 years of being married to me; he had had a hard day at work! Honest! :)

Thank you Amanda. I can probably see that he is worn out in the photo, because I know how tired he was feeling after work that day. Pj x
