Today The Mister, Mum and Dad and I spent time at the house, cleaning out the garage and stripping woodchip off the walls. For those who want to see house pics click….. here.
This afternoon Mum, Stef and I went to the wedding service of my mum’s cousin’s daughter (typical Guernsey relationship explanation!). Lucy and Luke looked wonderful and it was such a gorgeous day. Her dress was absolutely stunning, really classic and suited her perfectly! Several people asked me what was going to be my photo of the day, but obviously I decided it should be the bride and groom. They were only too happy to oblige and pose for a photo when I said they would be pic of the day!
So, have a wonderful day Lucy and Luke and I hope your lives together will be filled with love and laughter. Being married is wonderful! (as long as you are married to the right person!)
Before we left yesterday we went to the water-logged marquee to help with a bit of packing up and I wanted to collect my bunting. I was more than a little annoyed to see the marquee blokes just ripping it down. They hadn’t really considered that it took someone (i.e. me!) hours to make!
Anyway, it has all been washed, dried and is waiting to be fixed. So, this is what 110m of bunting looks like all draped in the same place! I still love it though!
OK, I have to admit that this photo wasn’t taken today but these pics have been kept secret.
I made this quilt for Sam and Sally as a wedding present. It ended up being bigger than I thought, about king-sized because it grew and grew. I wanted it to look liked a rainbow stained-glass window. I know Sam and Sally love everything rainbow coloured!
It was an easy quilt to make. I cut fabric into the same width but random lengths and then machined them together into a long length. I was then about to cut them to the right width and sew them together after that. It was a big job based on the size rather than the complexity of the job!
I love the end result and I hope the bride and groom appreciate how much time and love went into making it.
These gorgeous photos were taken by my friend Yasmin who is the very talented lady who took the wedding photos. She did a brilliant job so follow the link to her blog to take a look!
Here is another photo that Yasmin took but if you want to see the whole set then click on the pic and go through to Flickr. She took some gorgeous pictures!
Two years ago today I married the most wonderful man in the world. He is unbelievably stable, loving, kind and generous and I am very, very lucky. I know full well how fortunate I am, and my moaning about struggling to conceive and not having a baby does not in anyway prevent me from recognising that I have a lot of good things already.
The day of our wedding started sunny and clear and the weather deteriorated so that by the time I was arriving at the church it was absolutely tipping down! I have spent a little bit of time trawling my photos just to find a few favourites to share with you. The thing that struck me all the way through was how truly happy we both look. That hasn’t worn off. There are days when I am sad, but in general I am very content.
Unfortunately The Mister is in the middle of three night shifts so I got out of bed and he got into it! So, I came home from work a bit early and we raced down to our favourite tearoom for a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. It wasn’t very long, but it was nice just to spent an hour with my lovely husband. So, the photo of the day is a quick photo of us, me looking tired after work and the Mister looking tired before work!
I am lucky. Sometimes I need to keep reminding myself that.
Ps) Here are a few bonus photos taken by our brilliant photographer Yasmin.
I have spent the last few days sewing triangles to make bunting for my cousin’s wedding in July. Mum and I have had a nice little production line going. I sew the sides of the triangle and then Mum sits on the sofa and trims the seams and then turns them through with a chopstick!
I have absolutely no idea how long the bunting is going to be yet, we will wait and see, but I have at least 200 triangles. I hope it will look beautiful!
