'It Started With A Kiss'



It started with a kiss in March 1984 and were married later the same year on 1st December. The gentle, patient and kind man that is Himself has just taken me away for a short break, to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. We returned home yesterday evening.

Our journey started here ~



at St.Pancras Railway Station in London. Its fairy tale turrets seem worlds away from a railway station. The photo at the top of this post is of the 'The Meeting Place', the statue which graces the end of the platform area of the Eurostar terminus. It is nine metres tall and weighs five tons!

Our destination?



More of the interesting, elegant, lively and definitely most festive city of Strasbourg very soon. Now I must away for a stint of emulating a domestic goddess before I sort out the draw for 'A Bunch Of Sweet Peas'. Back soon.

    What an amazing photo of St Pancras station - I would definitely not have thought that was what it is! (Hope that makes grammatical sense!)

  7. I didn't realize that your trip to Strasbourg was for a wedding anniversary. Great choice. It's also one of my favorite cities to visit. I'll be looking forward to what you considered the highlights there.
