As I mentioned in my previous post, last week Mr LD and I celebrated our ten year marriage.
Over the past years we have gone down the traditional route in our presents to each other.

First: Cotton
Second: Paper
Third: Leather
Fourth: Flower or fruit
Fifth: Wooden
Sixth: Iron or sugar-candy
Seventh: Woollen
Eighth: Bronze
Ninth: Copper or pottery
Tenth: Tin

Presents have included picture frames, books and underpants!  I did recieve a frying pan for six years which shocked some friends, but I found quite funny.
I was fortunate enough to receive some lovely jewelry this year, so I had to think hard about what to give in return.  I decided on a tin full of memories of our last ten years together.  We had a lovely meal where I made him guess what each picture represented and what might be on the list. He guessed most of them right.
 Here's to many more tins full!
