A year into our marriage, Ben is more romantic than ever
Hope you’re all well.
The Sats have got a really hectic schedule at the moment because we’re promoting our new single Gentleman but Ben and I managed to get away for a romantic night to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
We didn’t want to go too far from home so we had a night at a lovely hotel in Buckinghamshire. We carried on the celebrations at home on Sunday (our actual anniversary) and had a family barbecue. Of course we wanted Aoife to be part of our celebrations too!
It was our paper anniversary so I wrote Ben a letter. He handed me the paid hotel bill and said “That’s my treat”!
My parents, who have been married for nearly 37 years, are a real inspiration to me. I hugely admire their relationship. They’re barely ever apart because they work together. My dad is a GP and my mum is a nurse so they’re together all day every day.
The longest time they’ve ever been apart was when my mum came out to LA with me for three months to help out while we were filming Chasing The Sats. I felt really sorry for them because you could tell they missed each other like mad but they’re back together now.
They met when they were students in Galway and they’ve owned and run the practice together for most of their working lives. They are really old school and their systems are really cute and quaint.
They’ve got so many patients that have been in their care for a long time and they say they wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. My dad is close to retirement age now but he has said he never wants to give up.
Can’t wait to tell you more about my busy week with the band in my next blog post ÔÇô thanks for reading!
