30 years ago..

30 years ago yesterday i married this man, my friend, the love of my life......and would never in a thousand years think that 30years would come round so quickly!!

We married in the Cummins Lutheran Church with the reception was held at the church hall (like many wedding receptions of that era were) and catered by the ladies church guild. I remember the week before helping mum pluck all the poultry for it....and haven't plucked another chook since!!

It was a warm humid day with a thousand sticky little flies....and by the reception it rained! Actually a bit like yesterday!!

We went on a big adventure to Adelaide for our honeymoon, staying down at Glenelg for 1 week.....we didn't start harvest until December that year....(lucky for that!!) I am not sure a farmer's daughter actually got away with planning a wedding in November to start with!!

Well, 30 years.....fun times, sad times, mad times, allsorts of times....all that makes 30 years, and yes we are still here!!

...and.....There is no other place i'd rather be...

And now for the the journey into the twilight years, the next 30!!
