Amazingly, Steven and I achieved 40 years of marriage today - I was 19, he was 22 - and my father said we would last 6 months - I always did have to have the last word with my Dad.

So, in Blue Peter Fashion, here is one I prepared earlier - Steven in the best place for him - somewhere in the country up to knees in mud!

And, thank you Richard for your UA for Two Plus Mobile is company - bless you xxx

Congrats on your 40 years Sue.
And my wife was 19 too when we got married,
but I was an ''old man'' of 24 !!
Good shot.
