When did you receive your work permit? March 2007?
Thanks for your question.
You will see from the links on the following pages citing both the standard requirements for naturalisation that it is only a requirement that you be free of immigration time restrictions on the day you make your application, as opposed to being free of such restrictions for 12 months:-
You will similarly see on the requirement for persons married to UK citizens that it is only a requirement that you be married to a UK national, not that you are married to a UK national and have been here on a spouses visa during the previous years. On this basis you should be fine to apply in March 2012 for naturalisation assuming you otherwise meet the criteria because the requirement is simply that you are married to a UK citizen
