Day 171 - Thursday 19th June

"When I get older losing my hair, Many years from now. Will you still be sending me a valentine, Birthday greetings bottle of wine. If I'd been out till quarter to three, Would you lock the door, Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I'm sixty-four."
- When I'm sixty four, McCartney

A great lyric to reflect on relationships or maybe the future

We have another 29 years until we get to 64 which seems a very long way off but I am certain that we will still be together then. We have been together for 10 years now and although we are no longer in the early flushes of romance, I think we have a great relationship. Zoƫ has cemented this relationship further.
Having grown up in a single parent family, I didn’t want to get married or have children unless I knew it would be forever and James feels the same way. I am not saying that we have the perfect relationship but it I think it is pretty good and I am happy with the way things are.
Luckily James has a lovely thick head of hair although it is going a bit grey (my fault apparently) and we still send Valentines and Birthday cards. I can’t remember the last time he had a night out so never has to be let in at silly times in the morning.
I know I will still definitely need him when we are 64 – that is if my feeding him hasn’t finished him off!!!!
