Anniversary

Today is our tenth wedding anniversary. Last Sunday, our friends and neighbours sprang a surprise party on us to celebrate the fact. They turned up completely unexpectedly with food and drinks in the afternoon. As it was hot in the sun, we moved tables and chairs into the shade of our little wood and celebrated. Thank you to all of them for the thought.

Oh, the poster behind us was done by the six-year old granddaughter of one of our neighbours. A nice touch.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    We had a great time, although I might add that I had just a tad of a hangover the following morning…

    Congratulations from both of us (John and Anja) as well! Looks like a great party…

    Thanks, John. Yep, it was a great party – heel gezellig, as they say here. We’ll have to do something next year as well, to mark the fact that by then we’ll have notched up 25 years of being together…

    Hi Geoff, happy anniversary to both you and Martin!  Looks like you had a lovely day

    Hi Katy! Yes, it was a good day. Mike was visiting us with Isabel during that week, so this was just icing on the cake.
