Two decades?!



...how on earth did we manage it?!

Madam Arcati and I have reached a milestone - this month (we don't have a set date; the whole of May will do as a celebration) we have been together for TWENTY bloody years...

That, of course, is the reason for our second trip in a year to the delights of the Costa del Sol tomorrow, for a week of unabashed hedonism. Why change the habits of a lifetime, I say?

We've been through a lot, have Tony and I: several house moves (including from Plymouth to London a year after we met), several changes of job, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, and all that malarkey. [Meghan and Harry have all that to come. But they're multi-millionaires so I doubt the "for poorer" bit applies.]

As we're off to Spain, I thought it appropriate to check out what would have been playing there two decades ago this week in May - and I discovered that their Number 1 and ours in the UK were exactly the same. So here she is, the Queen of Fucking Everything herself, Our Glorious Leader Madge - and Thank Disco (Techno? Trance? EDM?) It's Friday!


Faster than the speeding light she's flying
Trying to remember where it all began
She's got herself a little piece of heaven
Waiting for the time when Earth shall be as one


Time flies - "Quicker than a ray of light", indeed.

  2. Oh, Happy Anniversary!!! Have a fab holiday!

    P.S. I don't remember the video for Ray of Light being so manic. But, then, 20 years ago I was probably moving a bit quicker, too.

    1. We all were - we used to try and dance to it. I'd get a brain haemorrhage if I tried that now! Jx

  3. Gosh 20 years ago, you should have seen the two of us move then.
    We still do now but a bit slower dear.
    Roll on Spain and a bit of a boogie on down.
