Oh hello, it’s a milestone.

Todays marks ten years to the days since Fiona and I first went out.Since that night, we’ve spent barely a day apart (other than when one or the other of us has been out of town). Not to mention that together we’ve bought and renovated a house, done a smattering of world travel and a reasonable amount of swanning about in this country, eaten a lot of fine food and drunk a lot of fine wine, invested in property and – oh yeah, had a beautiful baby boy. Still can’t quite believe that last bit.

It’s been the best ten years of my adult life, no doubt about it. This wonderful woman has kept me sane, helped me grow up (a bit) and given me an appreciation for some of the finer things in life*. In return I’ve given her – well, god knows what she sees in me, really. But I know when I’m on a good thing. We’re still very much in love and planning to stay that way.

Forever, preferably, though I’m a little disappointed in the slower than expected march of technology. Where’s our immortality serum, again?

In what on any other day would not be second banana news, today is also the day we settle on our fourth investment property purchase, a block of flats in Albury. Hopefully we are edging closer to the breed of fantastic super-wealth that will allows to be early adopters of the aforementioned immortality technology, while it’s still cool and edgy. Or something.

* No chance of instilling any fashion sense though. I still dress like a teenage hobo.


  1. D’awwww.

  2. Heh, you’ll take the immortality serum while its cool and edgy and be stuck, alive, through the period when its gone out of fashion. The new “live fast, die at a natural age” generation will think you are so unhip.

  3. Cunningly, I have anticipated this. Through sheer determination I have spent years preparing for such a nightmare scenario by being profoundly unfashionable at all times.
