We celebrated our wedding anniversary the other weekend. Can’t believe it’s been a year already!
I’ve absolutely adored our first year of marriage and we really spoilt ourselves.
The Lions match in a sports bar on Saturday afternoon, followed by a stunning performance of Madam Butterfly at the ENO – which was beautifully done, very simple but striking set and costumes. We recognised some of the traditional Japanese Kabuki moves from a production of the Mikado we were both in a couple of years ago.. So something for each of us I guess!
I’m determined we’re going to stick to the traditional themes for anniversary gifts so year one was paper, so Duncan bought me a subscription to [Sew magazine.](http://www.sewmag.co.uk/) A fantastic new magazine published in the UK .. which I appear to be the exact target market for! You might recognise a little someone in issue two.. which dropped onto my doormat today! There’s a feature on sewing bloggers with mini interviews with 5 of us – it’s quite exciting!
I was really hoping to include some photos, but as neither of our cameras has battery, I’ll link to [Lisa’s review of issue one](http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2009/06/sewing-stash-thru-the-letterbox.html) for now instead! – I couldn’t resist posting straight away, Duncan’s out and I had to tell somebody! 🙂
