This day marks Geoff and my first date and this year it was 16 years ago. We met at the Kino in Collins Place and bought tickets to see Farinelli. We then went to dinner at a Malaysian restaurant in Chinatown and I remember smiling at the fact that he folled his shirt sleeves up. We then watched the movie and I remember apologising that I had to run to the loo half way through. After that we went to the Cellar Bar at Florentinos for a nightcap. In the taxi on the way back to my apartment in St Kilda Tina Arena sang Sorrento Moon.
I definitely did the pursuing of the man who became my husband, requesting the first date and eventually proposing, but he said yes at every turn. How fortuitous that I met him all those years ago, who knows who I would have been without him.
