"All You Need Is:..£17,000 per day!!"

It's become a bit of a family anthem...
My father, closing his Father Of The Bride toast at our wedding ( YRS ago!) suddenly burst into it...and everyone else followed.
Donkey's yrs later, my husband, closing his Father of the Groom toast ( months ago!) at second son's wedding, suddenly burst into it...and everyone else followed.

A fortnight ago, the D.J, closing the lively disco celebrating the joint Special Birthday of my brother and sisterinlaw, played it as their friends/family stood in a happy midnight circle..
"All you need is love": that's the song and that's what Paul McCartney thought, all those yrs ago. Then he married Heather. Each day of that marriage (according to her Divorce Settlement yesterday) earned her £17,000.
She should've been eavesdropping at our family celebrations over the years....and no doubt at quite a few others throughout the land...

A very -Merseybeat' blog, this one! All you need is love...........how true! How can anyone say that they can't live on £25 million!
I presume that you were referring to Andrew's 60th?
Happy Easter to you all X

Paul was never my favourite Beatle (that was George) but it's nigh on impossible to have any sympathy for her isn't it?

Great writing here as ever, Jan.

( But AYNIL wasn't on Rubber Soul...!)

I choked on me cuppa when it was announced that she wasn't happy with 35,000 a year for the upkeep of the child! Most people run whole families on that much!
