Our Song

by Insomniac Mummy on April 23, 2012

It’s a while since it did a meme, but this one struck a chord with me – Liz at The Mum Blog‘s Our Song Meme.

The husband and I got together way back in March 1998. He was just 20, and I about to turn 23. We were young, and despite not realising it then, really didn’t have a care in the world. So life wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect for us. Looking back, everything was so much simpler then.

The years since have brought us our fair share of happiness and heartache. From the births of our children, to losing loved ones, dealing with miscarriages and facing postnatal depression head on, we’ve been through the wringer, but we’re still here, sometimes just holding on with the very tips of our fingers!

This song reminds me of when we were in the first throes of our relationship and there was nothing to stop us being whatever we wanted to be. It was released the year we met, and we had it played during the signing of the register at our wedding in the year 2001. Such happy memories…


Being a meme it’s time to tag some more folk to share the fun. So what is your song? Spin me a tale Kylie, Wendy, Aly, LauraΒ and Mostly.

Ellie is a working mum. In her spare time she spends far too much time waffling on the internet. She's a Twitter addicted Facebook fanatic, and an all round social media butterfly. You can also find her on Google + as Insomniac Mummy. She once walked across England and is planning on walking 100K in one day in May 2014 for Cancer Research. All she really wants is a good night's sleep...

Drop Ellie a line, if you like!

Lovely post and song! I had forgotten about this song. Always troubled me that my husband and I never had a song but I wrote and sang a disco one for our wedding called ‘Tiptoes’ because he’s 6″6′ and i have to stand on tiptoes to kiss him!
