We spent Christmas at Calum's parents and then on Boxing day all the extended family and a load of friends went for a walk in the hills. Marvellous!
When I got engaged I got so stressed with everyone being negative - just little things, comments about "downhill all the way" and balls and chains and so on - but then I asked my Mum what marriage was like and she said "It's great fun!" Really cheered me up.
So Sam, from my Mum (who has been married about 30 years) and from me, who has only been married 14 months - it's great fun! All the best.
