This might trigger extra hits as people are looking for love, sex and more. I'm sorry to disappoint because at my age, it's no longer about any of these things.
Well, there is love and, yes, there's sex (still) but not in the sense of what is portrayed on TV or books. It's more of reality and the fact that sitting at home watching TV is just as good as a night out on a fancy date.
Those who think that only a fancy date signals a great time is wrong. It only means that the craving for excitement outweighs the being together.
Sometimes late in the night when we're in front of the TV, watching X Factor or some other show and munching on our snacks and commenting about the performers, there's a special kind of magic in the air. For me, it's a time of peace and calm. A moment that is so precious because it's like we're the only two people in the world and, to be corny, it's romantic.
Often Stephen would look at me, smile and say, "this is the life". Yes, this is our life.
Nothing fancy at all but totally real.
