My mother sent me an e-mail with "special day" as the subject line. In it was a picture of all of us standing in our finery outside Camden Register office: blue sky, smiles. TA and I look so young, so brave. It's five years to the day since we were married.
I was going to title this something sly, referencing cockney slang, but the knowing, cynical tone didn't suit what is genuinely a day to feel a sense of wonder about. We've come a long, long way this year - from the brink of collapse to a position of joyful blessings - it really is a special day.
