Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

Today’s #Prose4T is dedicated to Mr Bluecrisps aka Hubbie. It’s our wedding anniversary today, we went out on our first date 13 years ago today and married two years later – on the same day.

Happy Anniversary

Haven’t the last 11 (or 13!) years flown by?
You’ve made me laugh, you’ve made me cry.
We got married on that bright sunny day,
Freesias covering the fact that our son was on the way.

A ceremony in Jersey, it brought on the tears,
Tears of love, tears of happiness,
The feelings have carried on throughout the years.

And this year they’re stronger, we’re really being put to the test,
You’re a husband and father, you always do your best.

I’ve only got one gripe,
Shall I say it? I ought.
For when your sister said
“You’ve got to like sport..”

I thought she was joking,
I laughed along.
But how, how could I have got it so wrong?

Football – any football – and Sky sports news.
If it’s round, a ball and it’s being kicked,
You’ll sit for hours and view.

And, our son who was in my belly?
Our handsome, clever T.
Is just as obsessed with “the beautiful game”,
Oh “woe is me!”

But we’re a team, you and me,
With our children, in our home.
Together forever, my true blue with me going tap-tap-tap on my phone!

Thanks for the lilies, my favourite bloom,
11 years ago today, we were bride and groom.

Love you, J

  1. A very lovely tribute to your husband (and his sport-loving). I love freesias so it made me smile that line! Popping over from #Prose4T xx

  2. Congratulations on 11 years! Am hopeful my wee boy won’t be a football fan but what can you do!

    So lovely. I totally get the sport… grrrr! 🙂
    Happy Anniversary.

  4. Ah what loveliness… I’m a sport widow too – its golf in our house. Happy Anniversary x

  5. Ha! My husband is a massive lover of all things sport. Boules, Golf, Cricket, Rugby, Football, Snooker, Tennis; you name he will watch it. Football I can watch and occasionally rugby or snooker but all I can say is thank goodness we only have Freeview!

  6. Happy anniversary to you both, that’s such a long time and sounds like a lovely journey together too. My hubby is a complete football nut! He has about 60 footy tops that I am always trying to find space for!

    • Thank you and sympathies about the footie tops!
      It’s getting that way with my son too, I’m not allowed to part with anything remotely football-clothing-related and he’s now 10, been wearing his little kits since 18 months!

  7. Absolutely beautiful. Brought tears to my eyes this did. I love the line about the freesias too. As for the sport, I just have to put up with the Wrestling in this house – no football thankfully! Wishing you a happy 11 years and many more xx

    • Thanks lovely, yes the freesias played their part (but I didn’t mind my T-belly showing!) and were beautiful too.
      It’s gone by so quickly but I guess we’ve been busy! Xx

  8. Congratulations! And a lovely poem! My husband is a formula one fan- can’t get into it myself but luckily there’s a limited season for that!

  9. awww this is beautiful Jeanette and massive congratulations xx
