Today is our 55th wedding anniversary.

 Not the best time to get married between Xmas and New Year.

We have a tradition of driving through Snowdonia(North Wales) and then going to Llandudno to eat lunch.

Last year we didn’t do it.Lockdown must have stopped it.The problem now is that now we have moved we are 40 minutes further away.C really wanted to do it so we did.The scenery is spectacular.It is only when you move away do you appreciate what was on our doorstep.Snowdon was barely discernible due to low cloud but only at the summit.

We ended up on the West Shore in Llandudno where we had lunch at The Lilly.

I am supposed to be on a low carbohydrate diet but broke the rules today!!!!Fried egg and bacon on Welsh Rarebit.I only had a few of the chips,honestly.
After lunch we drove over to the main promenade in Llandudno.It has remained unchanged for many,many years.Lord Mostyn owns the land and will not allow any new developments.
Not very good photos but it was wild and very windy.

On the way back in the car we were discussing how lucky we are to have been married for 55 years.Quite an achievement.We put this down to fairly good health and other things.Neither of us is selfish.We always consider the other one sometimes to such an extent that we can’t make a decision.We have been adventurous in the past so have great memories.We are also very active.C has his diary colour coded!Yellow Flintshire U3A(art appreciation and social history and the band he plays in.Orange for Northwich U3a (art appreciation,social history and archaeology).Pink for family as we are now only 5 minutes away from them and another colour for social events.

During the 55 years we have had “downs” as well.Our first baby was stillborn.Sarah developed Type 1 diabetes when she was only four years old.My brother’s wife died when she was 32 leaving him with a 9,6 and 4 year old.We survived.

55 YEARS.Amazing.I just hope we have many more.

C had arranged for flowers to be delivered today.
