lend me some i.ron (i am your neighbour)

Friday night saw the SIXTH anniversary of our first date!

And, of course, we celebrated with Footy! Fortunately the anniversary of the first date coincided (almost) with the anniversary of the second2 (and the first time the Ducks have made it to the Preliminary Final since).

Honestly, this is my absolute favourite time of year, I have so many wonderful memories from when Don and I first romanced.

geared-up in prep2

Gourmet anniversary dinner (tickets being what they were – the whole evening cost more than a Very Nice Dinner would have)

pretty Ace! seats. We took the cheapest option (at $70 each) and they exceeded expectations

And … we won!

It is a testament our collective Ducks experience that, even with 2 minutes to go and a commanding lead, the Members all still considered losing a distinct possibility.


I leave you with comments from the 2008 anniversary post. Clearly any Nostradamusly qualities I might possess are really rather lacking …

Oh, gee thanks! Given that we are unlikely to get hitched (although our longish surnames somewhat similar, so it would be great to be hyphenated), it’s probably the only anniversary we’ll have.


1Though possibly the second date was an infinitely boring Industry Breakfast (with TheProfessor, ghastly coffee & horrid pastries) very early in the morning after our first date (and the morning of aforementioned Preliminary Final), so maybe PF should be considered Date 2.2.

2 Unfortunately this hideously uncomfortable garment will forever be known as the Lucky Pants and henceforth I will be compelled to wear them at every match.
