9 years…

*Soppy post alert….sorry*

On Sunday Jamie and I celebrated our 9 year Anniversary. Neither of us can quite believe how quickly time has flown and I think at our age it is pretty impressive to have grown up and been together for so long.

I see it that you either grow together or grow apart.  Don’t get me wrong we’ve had our ups and downs and our challenges, I don’t want you to think we live in some sort of Disney Fairytale, but we are a team and support each other and ultimately love sees us through (*sorry that was a bit cheesy*)


We met at the Northcott Theatre in Exeter many moons ago and now here we are going into our tenth year both pursuing the career we always dreamed of and living together in our flat in London.

I won’t bore you with details but I’ll let you in on one secret….I was in rehearsals and Jamie was working on the show watching me sing in the front row of the auditorium, one of the ladies, Amanda, turned to me and said “that boy loves you” – we’d never met and this was the first time we’d seen each other.

We just wanted to have a lovely low key day.  Both of us are so busy that it’s nice to be able just to spend time together so we decided on a day of just us and a picnic…it rained…of course it did! However no amount of rain could dampen our spirits, we just changed the location to our sitting room floor.

No English picnic is up to scratch without egg mayonnaise sandwiches in Jamie’s book!

and a Victoria sponge (which Jamie proudly made and lovingly ate!)

A perfect day.


Topped off by snuggling on the sofa to watch the Boat Race


Our goal this year is to find time to have a holiday together.  We haven’t been away at the same time for years!


I know that Jamie will hope when I write this post in a years time that we will have a dog…who knows. I’ll write it here now so we can see where this year takes us.

  1. Can’t believe it’s been 10 years! That’s gone so fast and I remember you guys getting together so well! 🙂 Same time we got engaged, infact…!

    Happy Anniversary lovelies – always knew you’d still be together 10 years later (and 20, 30, 40 etc)

    Lots of love to you both!
