R is for ...
Rings - When Jeff's Mum, Angela, died, she left all her children some money. Now rewind to when we got married. We were pretty broke - some things never change - actually money was beyond tight! Jeff has bought me a ring when I agreed to marry him - not an engagement ring - and it was a sterling silver ring with an opal in the middle - reduced in a sale to ........ £3.50! So when the wedding came round we bought each other wedding rings also made out of silver :) Didn't bother us, they are only symbols. So, Jeff decided, with some of Angela's money to treat us to new rings - a permanent reminder of her :) As we had been together 10 years by then he bought me a replacement non-engagement ring, a wedding ring and an eternity ring, and himself a wedding band. I still have to original rings on my charm bracelet. So my ring will be my eternity ring. Jeff's band broke a few years ago and he's not worn it since, so he's taken that to the jewellers to be repaired :)
RSVP - handmade these and sent them out with the Save the Date notices - they're for tomorrow obs!
Readings - At the time of going to press, so to speak, I haven't even though about what I'm going to say - but pretty sure it's going to be along the lines of thanking him for putting up with me and my loopy outlook on life LOL
