Blind Date

Have you ever made a decision on a whim that turned out to change your life? If so, what was that life-changing decision? Can you imagine what your life would be like if you hadn’t made that decision?

I don’t tend to make decisions without thinking about it carefully first. I reckon one decision would be going on a blind date to meet my husband. Taking a chance on someone I never met, and months later being engaged to him. We’ve had our ups and downs, but thirty-five years of marriage is something we can both be proud of.

Without meeting him, I wouldn’t have had children, or be a proud grandmother.

He changed my life because we both have an understanding of each other – his parents were pleased to have a woman in the family. I found a great friend in my mother-in-law, and my father-in-law reminded me of my own dad. We were meant to meet, have our lives together.

Not everything has been perfect, but we are perfect for each other.

I’m not sure what life would have been like, but I’m glad I met my husband.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. I met my wife on a blind date. I was reluctant because I hated the idea of blind dates but I’d recently broken up with a girl I’d been dating for about six months and my older sister insisted on fixing me up, so I finally agreed. That was 46 years ago and we’ve been married for 44 years!
