Week 23 One Daily Positive

We had a wonderful weekend at our son's wedding, the wedding was perfect and the day ran so smoothly, it's lovely to welcome 2a into our family officially, however she's been a big part of it for 5 years already, so no change really. It was really strange to see her name change on facebook and to refer to her as my Daughter in law. It was great to see so many of the family, sadly 3 and 3a weren't able to make it from Australia. The wedding photographer was my old school friend Caz, who I've known and kept in touch with for 36 years.

154 Sunday After a wonderful weekend with family and witnessing our eldest son getting married, I woke with a bit of a hangover, had coffee and after dropping the suit hire back with the Brides family and taking child 5 back to Cirencester, we headed off to Stockport to meet up with Peter's Mother, Sister and BIL and cousins ahead of his Uncle's funeral tomorrow.

155 Monday after breakfast we had a walk around Stockport and a coffee before heading off to the funeral, the service went well, but they played Rod Stewart 'I am sailing' at the end of the service, a song my father used to sing to me at bedtime. Andrew and Gemma 2 & 2a joined us at the wake before they fly out on their Honeymoon on Tuesday. We arrived back in South Wales early evening.

156 Tuesday Peter took me to Barry Island for my birthday, we walked along the beach, played in the slot machines and had a breakfast. We didn't paddle in the sea it was just too cold and we stopped off at the Outlet centre on the way home. I was in bed and asleep by 9pm, I was just so tired, we hadn't stopped since we got here.

157 Wednesday Popped into mums then off to Gloucester to take child 1 out for a few hours, before meeting friends, for dinner ahead of their wedding next month. There may have been a fair bit of Gin involved as we went to our local pub in the evening as well.

158 Thursday We visited Hereford for the day and collected my niece from school to take her out for an ice cream.

159 Friday Off to Bath to visit Peter's mother, called in at ours friend's mother's house in Newport to collect some post to take back for them in Dubai.

160 Saturday Mum and I went to Cwmbran and Peter met up with his friend to discuss his best man role in July. I spent the afternoon with my niece, her husband and Thing 1, 2 & 3 having a picnic in the park.

  5. Wow, you never stop! You certainly travelled some miles in a week. The wedding looks lovely. What a contrast to go from a wedding straight to a funeral.

  7. I'm so thrilled that everything went smoothly for the wedding, including the weather. Tough to have the funeral straight after, that song would have got me too. Hope you are having some down days in amongst the madness of catching up with everyone. Have i missed your birthday?? #365
