I don't regret any of it, a wedding arranged in 3 weeks and over in a flash, a marriage that seems to be lasting forever.

It was 40 years ago today
Who were that skinny couple, of yes I remember it was me and Mr FF tying the knot at the registry office in Middlesbrough 20 June 1970. I thought it was really romantic that we got married beside the college where Mr FF was an engineering student.My parents were at the time totally against Mr FF and I being together, especially as I had moved up to Middlesbrough to be with him so we only told a few friends and family what was happening and just got married. It took my family 6 months to come round but they eventually accepted what we had done and we were back to normal.We didn't have a photographer but friends who had taken snaps gave us copies, which I lovingly keep in an old photo sleeve and constantly mislay. My wedding ring cost £7 and my dress about the same, I still have the former though the pattern is all worn away, I have no idea what happened to the dress but I am certain I couldn't get into it now, I weighed 8 stone 3 lbs and I was 21.
