I didn't have grey hair in 2005
Ever the traditionalist, I did a bit of research the other day to discover that sixth wedding anniversary gifts should be themed around sugar and/or metal.
However, being a little busy this week, it was only yesterday lunchtime that I got around to searching for appropriate items.
The sugar bit was easy: a full-size chocolate bottle from Thornton's?
"I'll have one!" said me to the bored assistant.
The metal element proved a touch more problematic.
A new iron? She'd kill me.
Photo frames? She has loads.
Jewellery? Nothing jumped out.
A new car? I'd never get it home on the train.
And then it came to me.
A king-size bottle of Bombay Sapphire - complete with metal cap.
Sometimes my genius amazes even me.
