Exactly five years ago today, Gary and I sailed through the Swedish archipelago. When we reached the Oxdjupet narrows, he proposed. It was something of a surprise to me as we’d been together eleven years by then.
We got married exactly a year later.
Totally coincidentally, I set a story set on board ship at that very same stretch of water – and it’s in the My Weekly Summer Special available now!
The story is total fiction of course. That thing with the deck quoits never happened for a start. And Gary isn’t a redhead. The bits about drinking champagne though … mmm, OK they were very well researched.
