Today is our 13th weding anniversary. So what's that? Cotton, paper, leather, fruit & flowers, wood, sugar, wool, salt, copper, tin, steel, silk and... lace. Traditionally, these were gifts given by friends & family. After 15 it's only every five years: crystal, china, silver, pearl etc, right up to your 70th anniversary which is platinum. Actually, 80th is oak (which is a bit of a comedown) and 90th is stone. Can you imagine: reaching your 90th wedding anniversary - you'd have to be 110 each - and being given stones? Anyway, we went out for dinner in The Hidden City. Nice evening. Food so-so to be honest, but good to have some time to ourselves
