Husband appreciation

A photo of my husband in a supermarket wearing a mask and holding a bag of sprouts

I developed a kidney infection while in Germany when studying there aged 20.

It was incredibly painful and I ended up having to go to a hospital to see a doctor there – he was called Dr Engel, which translates as Dr Angel!

My new boyfriend (now my husband) was incredibly kind, looking after me, taking me to the hospital, making sure I had my medicine etc. He even – and this is possibly the kindest thing of all given we’d only been together a few months and he’d never met my family back in England – phoned my Mum to tell her how I was doing and keep her posted as I got better. As I say, he’s now my husband and still being kind to me nearly 30 years later!
