As its valentine’s week I thought what better way than to post about how me and hubby met, so grab yourself a cuppa and get ready for a little read, hopefully I wont bore you too much.
It all started back in 1998, I was working with my family in a local pub doing my NVQ Simon (hubby) used to come in every weekend with his mates at first then nearly every day if he wasnt working away, I always say he was stalking me by this point.
I did not have a very good childhood my mother and her husband at the time abused my position in the pub and I basically ran it whilst one drank all day and the other sat at the fruit machine. Thats another story.
Anyway I always say Simon saved me and took me away from all the negative and bad that was in my life, He made me feel special, we would sit and do crosswords together, play pool and laugh he always makes me laugh even to this day.
After a long time of flirting with one another it was the end of the year and we had our first kiss on New Years Eve which was amazing, We then had our first date on the 5th January 1999 which i remember to this day I had been ill with tonsilllitus and really did not want to go but did not want to let simon down so regardless I went We had a lovely meal and he treated me like a princess. We were officially a couple and life was really good for the first time in a long time, He would always cook me a mix match of food (whatever he had in the freezer) after my long shifts at work and always walked me home. His dad spent most of his time next door with his lady friend she would always cook him meals and they would go out on trips together which I always thought it was sweet, So we basically had the house to ourselves the majority of the time.
My mother was on the move again in the middle of the night, and I was in love there was no way I was going to be moving again, So Simons dad said I could move in with them which was so kind of him as I really did not want to leave.
So if I had not of met Simon I know I would not be here today as my life was sinking and I dont think I could of taken anymore with my mother. He loves me for who I am he cares and looks after me and never once moans when I spend money its the other way round lol. We do have arguments but as time goes by we learn to pick our arguments which really are far and few these days, We have now been together 20 years. We did everything backwards we had kids, bought a house then got married. But I dont regret one bit of it I love him to the moon and back he is my soulmate, and best friend. Dont get me wrong he annoys me most days but hes mine and I wouldnt change him for the world.
There you have it if your not bored and your still with me, thats a little snippet of me and Simon.
I would love to know how you and your loved ones met if you would like to share please do.
