Hi Clo, (sorry, Mrs Tanswell!)
Well, the wedding has come and gone and what a fantastic day it was.
But first, a catch up on the mundane before I summarise the great day for my reader!
We closed the house down as usual, sorting out the admin for another 10 months away. We travelled to and from the 'van numerous times and got it packed up tight for the journey south. It must be a great deal lighter without 80 bottles of fizz in the ‘garage’. By the way, the Cava at the wedding was excellent. It travelled from Spain with no ill-effects.
We travelled over to Skeggie to visit with John and Kay. John and Janet from Cabo were also there and I was shanghaied into getting another tattoo. (piccies to follow).
We went to the Malvern MH Show and spent far too much – but managed to get the fridge serviced. The internal gas burner was severely rusted! Steve and Edna were there and we also bumped into Ted and Mary.
We also managed an afternoon with Denis and Eunice in Newark and Derrick and Jean popped over for final BBQ. Thanks again Dirk for looking after our garden – It's much appreciated.
So we packed up the last bag, set the Central Heating, prepared the pre-paid mail envelopes, took the gas and leccy readings, locked the shed,turned off the fridge and water and evacuated on the 3rd of September and decamped to Lee Valley and the ‘Wedding’.
Of course, everything was under control and everything ran like clockwork.
It was a brilliant day and everybody had positive comments to make. Hackney Town Hall was a superb venue and the wedding suite was excellent. Stour Space was a unique setting for the reception, which combined the conventional with quirky and original perfectly. The food and service were brilliant and the view overlooking the Olympic Park was fabulous. Everybody enjoyed themselves immensely and you should be very proud to have organised such an important event so well.
All in all, a perfect day.
Thanks so much for making it such a memorable occasion for us.
We now sit at Plymouth awaiting the Brittany Ferry to Roscoff on the 12th. We dropped in to see Sue England on the 10th at Ashurst in the New Forest. Then we had the shower tray fixed at Chard and met Ken and Penny waiting for their ferry on Sunday. Small world.
We meet up with Andy and Eileen on the 17th, Paul and Jackie on the 20th in Limoges and then down to Condom to see Pat and Bob on the 23rd.
Then it's on to San Sebastian, Rioja country, Benicassim and Benidorm before reaching Cabo around the 28th October.
Hope you enjoy the Honeymoon.
M and D
