Five Fabulous Years of Fun

Five Fabulous Years of Fun

Today Ross and I have been together for five years. In some ways it feels like forever and, in others, it only feels like a moment ago. He and I have been through a lot together – more than most and less than some – but whatever happens I know that he is there for me, as I am for him.

As some of you may have read, we are going through a bit of a trial at the moment but I know that we are destined to get through this as have done so many others. However, that is not to say that we are not having fun. We have, and we do, in so very many ways and in my poem for Prose for Thought and the Prompt this week (where the word is fun) I wanted to capture just a bit of that.

We usually buy each other a gift on our anniversary but this year our money is going towards the biggest gift of all – trying for our baby – so instead, this one is for you Ross, with my love. Oh, and I have shared one of my favourite photos of you too 🙂 ( you will find a recording of my reading of the poem just under the title).

Five Fabulous Years of Fun


We met during a pantomime
Our lives are anything but
Dancing to Michael Jackson
I distinctly remember your strut
We moved on to coffee and talking
And boy, did we go on
A first date to see Godspell
But not so keen on the songs!
Five fabulous years of fun

Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings
There’ve been many LEGO games
Trying to meet the challenges
Guaranteed at least one of us blames!
You are someone who loves music
Almost just as much as me
So many discussions about it
On which most of the time we agree
Five fabulous years of fun

Breaking Bad, it captivated us
And so has The Walking Dead
Laughing at the Inbetweeners
Greys Anatomy and tears that we shed
There was also the IT Crowd
And, of course, the Gilmore Girls
Trying to make up for his mistakes
That honour was Randy and Earls
Five fabulous years of fun

We’ve acted as zombies on films
We’ve dressed as eighties stars
You clean both of the bathrooms
I look after both of the cars
Lots of fond holiday memories
Center Parcs three times to date
As for going to Pontins again
You’ve got to be joking mate!
Five fabulous years of fun

    I had no idea I was just so behind on Prose for Thought catching up! I’m so sorry!

    This is wonderful and I bet Ross loves it too.

    Thinking of you both xox

    Hi Victoria, A slightly belated Happy Anniversary. It sounds as if you’ve had some fun times together and I hope you have many more. And I hope your wish comes true.

    Happy Anniversary! I love this, especially the Pontins line! I’ve written my husband a poem for Valentine’s Day too – it’s what all the best people are giving as gifts! #WhatImWriting

    Happy anniversary! :o)
    Your poem is such a fabulous gift.
    I also wish for you both that this is indeed the year you will meet your baby. xx

    Happy anniversary. What a lovely way to celebrate your being together.

    Happy Anniversary. Great poem, something I could never do, not that well anyway! The Breaking Bad obsession took over this house too but I was left to ball my eyes out at Greys on my own. Just as I left him to Sons of Anarchy!

    We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary next month and it only seems like yesterday that we were on our first date.

    You old romantic you! I have to admit I wrote a piece for my husband on our first anniversary too – so personal and much more meaningful than just opening your wallet.

  13. February 11, 2016 / 3:19 pm

    Happy anniversary! I love this, such a lovely present 🙂

  14. February 11, 2016 / 11:34 am

    Happy Anniversary! I love it when we reach milestones, such a great time to reflect on what has been and what is still to come. Hope you guys still keep having fun for many years to come. xx

    Happy Anniversary to you and your husband, Victoria! What a lovely thing to gift for this momentous milestone. Wishing you a lifetime of fun, and hoping that next year will bring you even more joy and happiness. Thank you for hosting this week! Have a great rest of your day

    A lovely poem for a great milestone – congratulations on five years together! Here’s to a wonderful next five… and beyond! Thanks for linking to #whatImWriting

    What a perfect anniversary gift, and so much fun to read 🙂 We too were hooked by Breaking Bad, although my other half leaves me to watch Greys Anatomy on my own! Happy Anniversary, hope you continue to have lots of fun.

    Your relationship does indeed sound like fabulous fun! What a superb foundation to build on. Congratulations on five years and here’s to many more! #prose4t
