This week Hubby and I celebrated our 4th Anniversary. We got married on the 1st November 2008 at Bookham Grange Hotel. The weather was atrocious, torrential rain, even a bit of flooding on the local roads but that didn't spoil our day, it was a wonderful occasion we shared with our friends and family, most of which stayed at the hotel with us. We choose Bookham Grange because it was a small hotel which meant we would be the only ones there and we wouldn't have to share our day with other couples getting married. Well it was all suppose to be about

Friday finally got to do some fun stuff. We initially headed off to Tunbridge wells to The Enchanted Forest at Groombridge Place Gardens but we arrived there and then decided to go somewhere else as we'd forgotten it was half-term and I wasn't about to fight kids to go on the giant swing and other fun stuff there! Here's some pictures of the Enchanted Forest.
Looks like fun doesn't it these are pictures from their website. http://www.groombridge.co.uk/enchanted.htm
Now that may sound a bit miserable but I'm afraid Hubby and I would rather go there when it's quieter and the kids are back at school. Since we have none of our own we might as well enjoy the luxury of the tranquillity of the countryside without the shrill screaming of children (if we had our own it would be a different story and it would be wonderful to hear they're joyous laughter echoing through the forest).
We both love to find random interesting places to stop at on our travels. On Friday we found a lovely little tearooms at Perryhill Orchard Farm shop. It was really lovely, the kitchen in the tea rooms was just like a kitchen in someones house, very quaint.

Lastly I'll leave you with a little poem. We used this on our order of ceremony.
Happy anniversary to my wonderful Husband. Life has taken some interesting turns for us but I am grateful that at each one you were with me by my side. Each time life tests us, together we show how strong we are. In your love is my strength.
