As I wrap up the public half of my day, I wanted to say something about what day it is. This is the 15th of November, 2011, and as such it is 25 years, today, that I got married to my first wife Michelle.
I was with Michelle for just over 12 years, and so we did have a tenth anniversary together, before her long illness finally separated us.
But as it happens, just three weeks ago I celebrated my tenth anniversary of being together with my present partner Tamara ... so that would have been my second time. And somehow I managed to do them both in the same 25-year period.
It is a strange, strange world. They have both loved me very much, which has probably been stranger. I have loved them both very deeply. I could not help myself.
