We have had a lot of family things going on beginning with a bit of baby sitting for
We were in charge Saturday and Sunday whilst Mummy & Daddy attended a wedding.
I used the occasion to bring the Chariot out of storage. 29 years old (the chariot, not the baby !)
Unfortunately, little miss had contracted a virus (before we took over). A quick visit to the doctor to confirm nothing serious and we packed a tearful Mummy and Daddy off.
Popped baby into the carriage and walked the mile and a half to the sea front.
|lots of pretty dresses, but sported a vest all day trying to keep cool|
Miss O was fine whilst we were walking, but very restless when we stopped, so we kept walking.
Mr T pushed (leaned - a lot) and was promised a steak dinner at a favourite pub on the front.
It was PACKED!!
So we continued walking.
The trouble is going back to the house is all UP hill!
And no steak or beer. Not what we had planned.
After a very long night Miss O seemed to have picked up and things got back to normal,
and I went to bed VERY early.
The following weekend saw a "Hen" and Chick gathering in York.
|First Class travel|
With Brunch at Kennedy's
A fair amount of shopping for some and the afternoon in a cocktail bar for others, meeting up for afternoon tea at Bettys
|two of my lovely sisters|
We woke to rain. A lot of rain. But there was nothing we could do about that so hair was curled, make up applied and our best dress put on.
The weather was kind to us, the rain stopped about an hour before the service, and it remained a bit cloudy and breezy till later on in the afternoon when the sun came out in earnest
And here the Happy Couple
|Mr & Mrs W|
Uni friends came - these girls are FAB, they make my girlie so happy. They came from far and wide to help celebrate. And Celebrate they did!!!
Kelmarsh Hall is a beautiful venue
with beautiful gardens
|there were seats!!|
with LOTS of dancing - can't recommend Matt Stratford Duo highly enough. They sang their socks off all night.
Sunday saw a quiet gathering of guests before they all departed for far points of the country
A great (if unproductive) three weeks don't you think
Meanwhile in the garden the Hollyhocks have come into flower in a big way
And I am now off to sort out some of the beautiful roses - Memory Lane and Avalanche - that were retrieved from an arrangement.
|such a pretty colour|
I am now up to date - I think - with all events, so some sewing is on the books.
I joined in a Sew A Long earlier in the year as did a friend. Now she has worked out a pattern for another mini where the blocks are one and a half inch finished!
You heard it here
I. think. I. Am. Ready!
