Twenty years ago today, I made some vows, signed some paperwork and became married to Natalie, my amazing wife. Scientist, sailor, partner, puppy parent and partner-in-crime extraordinaire. And an all round very nice person, to boot.
Obviously it’s a pity I only realised we’d reached this momentous milestone when I found the card she’d left for me before she headed off for work this morning.
And it’s taken me an embarrassingly long time to find a photo of her that doesn’t have one or both of the dogs in centre frame.
But if marriages are a work in progress, at least I have plenty to keep me occupied for the next 20 years.
Here’s to the journey… with the best travelling companion I could ever hope to have.
