(Our wedding day, 24 June 2006 at Tamborine Mountain)
Will and I celebrated four years of marriage today. We all went out for breakfast, came home for lunchtime naps, packed a picnic and went to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for the afternoon. Ollie seemed to have a great day, meeting animals, patting kangaroos, bird spotting and generally enjoying himself. After Max and Ollie were safely tucked into bed, we ended the the day with a big plate of carbonara, a glass of red wine, tea and chocolate.
I like being married. I like feeling like I'm part of something, a partnership, a future. Being a parent makes that bond, the decision to spend the rest of your life with someone, even stronger so I'm glad we spent the day as a family.
