In 1972 we went on a Golden Rail holiday to Llandudno. We were surrounded by old people, food dreadful. We were put at a table with " the other young couple" who must have been well over40.
We had fun as we were newly in love with a fake wedding ring!!! Those were the days.Nearly blew it when then boyfriend, now husband referred to me as his wife.

Happy days and the sun shone all the time.

LullyDully, what do you mean 'nearly blew it'? I thought you were pretending to be married anyway, what with the fake wedding ring...confused

I'm guessing she nearly blurted out "Oh, he's not my husband ! "
