Wooden Anniversary

4 photographs of Trinn Suwannapha. In 3 of them he is drinking. In one he looks exhausted.

Today ’Pong and I celebrate 7 years together. As these photographs show, he’s found his own way of coping.

I haven’t been writing here for all that time, but the posts tagged Trinn Suwannapha will give you an interesting if unrepresentative overview.

And now, since I was inside all day yesterday staying warm fighting a cold, where the hell can I find a suitable wooden gift before he wakes up? I guess there’s always that broken chair leg in the cellar…

Pom rak kun maak krub, Khun ’Pong! ขอโทษน่ะครับ! ขอให้โชคดครับี ห้องน้ำอยู่ที่ไหนน่ะครับ?

  1. They are very attractive photos of me. You should know how I cope. The first three picture tell it all. Yep, Coopers and wine save me. 7 years, have I broken the record? LOL Thank you anyway. ผมรักคุณเหมือนกันครับ อีช้างเย็ด!

  2. But according to K-Rudd you aren’t a “real aussie working family”… And the horse he rode in on.

    Enuff of that — hearty congratulations. And I’ll leave the wooden and woody comments to one side as well.

    Much love,

  3. Happy anniversary to both of you!

    As for which wooden present, I say a wooden stake. Useful in emergencies — for example, if one of you turns into a vampire.

  4. @’Pong: Your tribute photos are perhaps even more disturbing than mine. I’m not sure what to make about that. You’ll have to translate the Thai for me later. I wonder if it’s as appropriate as what I wrote? [smirks]

    @Everyone Else: Thanks for your good wishes, both here and on Twitter.

  5. As a token of my esteem I’m going to refrain from making any ‘getting wood’ jokes. My best wishes to both of you.

    Probably too late, but my wooden gift suggestion: a tin of those lovely Derwent coloured pencils.

  6. Happy days, ye of wooden mileage.
    It’s a far cry from those dark times under the long shadow of The Core breakup, I’m sure you’d agree.

  7. Also, I caught up with Trist Jones when he came to our engagement party in February. And his first question at the drop of your name was whether you guys were still together, and he’s delighted you are. Because having known you from back in The Village, he too has seen first hand how this relationship has brought strength and happiness into your life. (Like me, he probably wondered at times if he’d ever see it happen.)

    So heartfelt congratulations to you both!
