This week’s Beginning of Us post comes from one of my closest friends not just in the blogging world but in ‘real life’ too – although we do live hundreds of miles from each other! You can find Pam over at Life With Munchers talking about all things home as well as her pregnancy updates – although this will turn to baby updates soon as she’s now had her gorgeous new baby! Here’s how Pam met her future Husband in a car themed story. Over to Pam…
My Story starts back in 2004, when I first started working for the local Volkswagen dealership around the same time as my future husband. I’d always admired him from afar, but neither of us plucked up the courage to ask each other out.
We had a missed opportunity when he sold me my first Polo and he invited me to a works drink that night, but in all the excitement I got 1 digit wrong in my mobile number! I never approached the subject as I didn’t know if he’d even tried to call me and well he thought I’d given him the wrong number on purpose.
A year passed and he had told a few work buddys that he was going to ask me out, only the very day he was going to ask me, his so called work buddy pipped him to it…and it’s there that I waste 4 months of my life!
It wasn’t until we worked together for over 2 years and after another Polo sale that we finally exchanged numbers and I told him that I’d given him the wrong number by accident 2 years previous.
We tried to keep it a secret from work at first, but the Sales Manager’s daughter stayed on the same street and he kept wondering why a certain person’s car was always outside my flat. He even took to hiding it behind skips and walking the rest of the way, but the jig was up!
We very quickly moved into my flat, before moving into his bigger flat and we got engaged after just a year. I guess when you know…you know.
We got married in 2009 and moved into our first house together.
Now we have moved a further 2 times, are on our 9th Volkswagen (although neither of us work there any more) and have a 4 year old girl and another on the way.
Who knew that you could find love in the work place?!
Thanks Pam for sharing your story. It’s nice to know that relationships that start at work can last – despite wrong numbers! Looking forward to hearing all about the imminent new addition to your gorgeous family!
