Sunday 7th October, 1990
Would you believe that we've been married 20 years. Richard asked me to marry him on April Fool's Day, after midday, so it counted. He thought we'd have a leisurely engagement but after knowing him for around 5 years I wasn't waiting any longer than necessary. So 6 months later we became Mr and Mrs...
I tried my dress on at the 10 year anniversary and couldn't even get the zip half way up, hate to think about how much of me would fit in it now...I was only 47 kilos when I got married... My friend, M, tried hers on at the same time and yes she got the zip up. How many dresses did you try on before you found "the one"? I tried on some beauties - lol - glad Mum and Dad were with me on one occasion otherwise I would of looked like a ball of fluff. Dad's face said it all and Mum's tactful "mmmm" confirmed Dad's face.
We were married in St. Peter's Cathedral, North Adelaide, so I had one very long aisle to walk down and parade the dress. Did momentarily look at another church but such a short aisle!
Several married couples in the book "The Slap". Would I swap places with any of them? No...never...not at all. What I would like to do, is jump in the book and give them all a good slapping... So many men you'd never take home to mother.
