Two decades?! 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 month - 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.


  1. Happy Anniversary to you both!!!!!! Truly a lifetime in our gay years!!!!! A toast to you Brit Lads🍸🌹🎈🍸🍹💄💋💋💋💋💋

    1. Thank you dear.
      They used to say a gay year was the same as dog years
      (7 for 1)
      It has been a journey and I am happy

    2. Clink, clink my dear! Gin-a-plenty awaits on the Costa... Jx

  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.

  4. Well, long may your happiness continue.
    I don't have a particular day to call an anniversary.Any day in October does for us.Almost 40 years!

    1. That's quite an achievement! Jx
