6th March 2015
This week, I celebrated my 52nd birthday and so took a step closer to my free London Oyster card! What a sobering thought... although, as someone in the office said this week, they will probably raise the age for that privilege before I get there!
All in all, this was quite a big week in the Tibbert household, one which included our eldest son Ben and his fiancée Alice getting the keys for their new flat in Lee. They are enjoying thinking about how they will organise their first home before they move in after their wedding in April. With only 43 days to go until the big day, we are all busy making sure the final arrangements are in place, whilst our middle son, Josh, is planning Ben's stag weekend. Then on Wednesday, we were very pleased to find out that our youngest son, Samuel, has been made House Captain at his school.
Last weekend we also enjoyed a meal out with my brother Martin and his wife Dawn (pictured below), and on the same day we were all thrilled when their daughter announced her engagement to Johnny. So you can see it has been quite a week for the Tibberts.
'Two are better than one' has been a recurring theme throughout our Better Together series. Deb and I are passionate believers in the importance of family life - and right at the heart of a strong family is a stable, fun-filled, loving marriage. It takes time to build a strong family; it takes time to build a strong marriage. That is why each year Deb and I love speaking on The Marriage Course here at King's, drawn from the excellent HTB material. The next Marriage Course starts on Tuesday 6th May on the Catford site. This is the group we will be attending next term, and if you are married and would like to invest some time building your relationship, we would love you to join us.
