Wedding Anniversary at the care facility

Today was our 47th wedding anniversary:)
The staff at the facility decided to ask me for lunch and prepared a lovely table in the conservatory with flowers and sparkly confetti on the table. They poured me a glass of wine and a glass of beer for Lex:) He was a bit nonplussed as to the occasion, but joined in the fun anyway. It made the day a little lighter for me, as this is the first anniversary with him in care.
Later a couple of friends called and picked me up and took me to the local garden centre for afternoon tea, so I had no time to go home and feel sorry for myself. Thank goodness for true friends :):)

So pleased you were able to enjoy your wedding anniversary with Lex and what a loving CH to have arranged it for you. It's not easy the first one, our's was last July and Robert had only been away a month. Not sure he realised what we were celebrating. As you say thank goodness for friends that helped you over the day. Take care love disi xxx

Happy anniversary.
What a lovely home to go that trouble.
Our golden wedding was 8 weeks after my husband went into a nursing home straight from 8 months in hospital and nobody in the home knew about it.
I took in a cake but he could only have a little slice as he was a diabetic and I left it for the other residents.
My husband wasn't aware of the occasion so it was rather a sad day.

Care staff can be so very kind on special occasions. You both look as though you enjoyed your day. Memories, even bitter sweet ones are so very important.
