I mentioned on 27th June that blogging would be light in July, and this is why:
I got married today.
I’m not much of a romantic, I’m not much for getting soppy, I used to say I can’t imagine a lifetime commitment. (I say marriage, but of course until the law changes and lifts the ban in Scotland, we’re registering a civil partnership: once the law is changed we’ll download the special upgrade.)
I don’t feel either soppy or romantic about this: I met the one person in the world I can’t imagine being without, and today, she did me the honour and the privilege of joining her life with mine. We’re partners and friends: we pledged today before family and friends and the registrar for Leith:
I choose you above all others to share my life. I promise to honour this pledge as long as I live.
War blogging continues tomorrow.
