Fun Monday

Janet from The Planet of Janet is hosting this week and wants us to tell the tale of how we and our partners met..

Describe your meeting with your spouse/significant other. I especially want to hear “meet cute” stories. And it doesn’t have to be your actual current sig/other. Perhaps the “meet cute” story is a former boy/girlfriend… or even a best friend. Illustrate with photos, of course.


  This is me and Chef the month we started going out together. I’ll never forget the moment I saw him walking through the Main Kitchen in the Gatwick Hilton International Hotel. His bright white starched Chefs jacket with sleeves rolled up, almost to his elbows, blue and white checked trousers, and tall torque (making him look a foot taller than he really was) He was pushing an upright  fridge through Room Service, where I worked. I just HAD to have him!

  I asked a colleague his name and he told me it was ‘Dave’…..

 I shouted, “Dave, I want you to have my babies!” He turned around, looked at me and blushed.

 A month later, we got together during a Wolfetones concert in London where I discovered his name wasn’t Dave!

He’s never looked back!



~And the babies I asked for 2007~




  1. That’s adorable. I esp. love that you called him the wrong name. And, Dave gave you some adorable babies.

    I LOVE your bouquet! I wish I had been there to catch it. That was a really cute story. And you – seeing what you wanted and going for it! Very cool.

    Funnily enough my hubby told me his name was Daniel when we first met (in a nightclub) and I called him that for a week or two.

    What a beautiful story. Any of the kiddos have Dave anywhere in their names? Or Davida, as the case may be? Thanks for such a great story.

    wow…. those are damn cute cookies the two of you baked.
    This was a wonderful post. I wanted to ask about your husband ‘buns’, but there are some things I guess must be left in the oven.

    That really is a cute story. I guess this is all about asking the right question and you apparently did ask just the right question.

    That was pretty bold of you to say what you did. Obviously, he didn’t know your powers of persuasion 🙂
