Our Anniversary Present to Each Other

Its our 20th year anniversary coming up, so we decided to replace our wedding rings.

Off we went to have a look, having decided on Titanium for Paul, as it’s more hard wearing.  This meant I had to change mine to white gold to match.  An engagement ring, eternity ring and wedding ring for me and a wedding ring for Paul.

The cost was immense.  Paul said it would be more wisely spent on new windows for the house or a replacement caravan for our 23 year old starter van we had bought 3 years ago.

We jokingly stopped at Eden caravans and motorhomes at Scorrier on our way home.  After a mooch, we spotted a van that was exactly what we wanted, and that had a fixed bed to prevent the ritual making up and taking down of the sofa each day.



We asked for a part exchange price on our little old van.  After a trip with the salesman to have a viewing of it, we were horrified to find that she was filled with rot and should not be towed on the roads any more.  Essentially she would only be good if kept stationary i.e. as a field hut for shepherds etc., you get the idea.

The laugh was then theirs not ours.  We had to make a decision to actually spend money rather than window shop!

After a trip to see our levellers Sally-Ann and Mike, we took them up to see  the proposed purchase.  It was an all round YES!




The deal was done and our anniversary present bought, even if it was a week early.  The valets just have to do their thing and hopefully we will have it for next weekend.

A far better way to spend money.  On holidays that we will enjoy for years to come.

  1. Totally agree with you Jo - the new van looks lovely. Our friends did the same when they had a caravan, upgraded to one with a separate bedroom so the bed was always made up to make life easier.

    I can't believe you bought the other van 3 years ago!!!! Time flies.
