May the 4th Be With Us

We’ve been married 4 years today! And, what’s more, we’re even managing to go out for dinner because a friend is coming to babysit.

On the gift front, 4 years is supposed to be linen; The Brainy One has given me a beautiful Smythson 2010 diary and a copy of Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (this year’s Booker Prize winner). I have to confess that so far he has received nothing from me because I’m stuck for inspiration – oh, dear!

  1. Hi Ruth,
    Sorry, I don't have an e-mail address to get in touch directly. I'd be happy for you to link to my blog so that people can see the photos there but please do not copy the photos and paste onto your own blog.
    Many thanks,


  2. Happy Anniversary, Ruth! What a beautiful picture of the two of you.

    Let's see… linen…hmmmm. What about a beautiful linen shirt? Some boxer shorts with hearts to be funny??? My husband always likes to get clothes because he hates to shop for them. Though not linen (although a cloth bound volume might count as such), I also think a volume of favorite poems is a perfect gift… maybe Sonnets from the Portugese? Oh, and monogrammed linen handerchiefs.


    Sheila 🙂


  3. Happy Anniversary! Enjoy the evening out ~ relax and take your time. Not much help on the linen gift, apart from clothes (horrid to iron) althought the handkerchiefs would be ok.
