Sorry about the absence - happy day!



There has been no blogging for a few days because I have been away for the very happy occasion of the wedding of my God-daughter. Today - my first day home - I am very tired from all the excitement. It was a super wedding, everything went to plan. I gave the bride away so had quite an important role, which was an emotional drain as well. So today I am just posting a photograph of the bride with her two chief bridesmaids and a photograph that the farmer took of me at the reception - then I am going to put my feet up for the rest of the day.

Sorry about the stole - it means you can't see my dress at all, but believe me I really needed that stole - the temperature was just above freezing. The bride didn't seem to notice the cold at all!

Pat, you look delightful, but please don't wear that posh hat in the cowshed. It might get spoilt!

Never mind the stole Pat, - it is the fascinator we all want to see, and you look lovely in it. Will look forward to hearing about the wedding when you are rested and recovered from all the excitement.

Never mind the stole - how about the titfer! Looks like you had a great time.

John Gray said...

lovely hat! ( or is it a bloody facinator) I'll be buggered if I know!
glad you had a grand day... you have been looking forward to it for ages!

it's me said...

the big moment--finally got to see you in your fascinator (sp)? you look grand!

Heather said...

What a lovely bride, and a lovely godmother too. I thought about you and hoped you were managing to keep warm. There is nowhere to hide thermals under a wedding dress or gladrags!
So pleased it all went well and I trust you will not come down to earth with too great a bump.

What a lovely picture! Your Fascinator hat is smashing! Bride looks ecstatic. So glad you had a lovely, if tiring, time!

Sounds like everyone had a LOVELY day. Super photo of you (AND the fascinator - Ascot next perchance?!) Your God-daughter looks SO happy, bless her.

Weddings do tend to take the wind out of you. You look lovely - and the bride as well.

Tom Stephenson said...

Oops! - I just asked you why comments about your delightful hat had been deleted, but now know I looked at the wrong post! Blame it on the siren. Sorry.

This wedding was a big event for you, hug? Rest and relax. I looked lovely.

The stole is beautiful anyway. Now I have to go and Google what the difference is between a Fascinator and a hat!

B'ham said...
