A week of enjoyment and beautiful surprises

We travelled back home from the wedding in Wales at a leisurely pace. Had a lovely time, got home, unpacked, put a load of washing in and settled down with the thought that we could rest for about two weeks before the next excitement of our great granddaughter arriving.

 

We rested for.....let's see, well till seven am on Wednesday morning when we got the call to tell us that Hermione May had been born!! She weighed in at seven pounds odd and is the most beautiful baby ever !

Wedding

At last the great day came and we all had a really good time. The night before was interesting as we didn't fancy eating in the hotel so we went in search of a pub meal. Impossible on Saturday night! So we ended up (5 of us) eating fish and chips in our car in Rhyl.

Our grandson was a star. He cried when he saw his bride so we all cried with him. Then he cried while giving his speech at the reception so we all cried again, we were running out of tissues.

Wedding eve

It's here at last and we arrived at the hotel at about 5pm. Nice room and quite large. We found Lauren (the bride) and took the posting box, order of service and menus ready for tomorrow.

We then decided we needed something to eat so we went in search of a pub meal. Saturday night is not the right time to get a meal without booking lol. We ended up eating fish and chips in the car with sister in law and brother in law and my sister angela. I dread to think what the car will smell like in the morning lol.

So now we are turning in for the night ready to face a long day tomorrow.

Countdown to the big day

Well, we're nearly there but I have definitely finished the wedding stationery. The thank you note cards were the very last things to be done. Feels like I've been doing this stationery for years, it's become part of my life lol.

Still preparing

Still preparing for the big day. A first for me, today I had my nails done, gel ones I may add. My own nails have suffered due to the medication and this seemed the sensible way to deal with the problem. So happy with the result even if I am 25 pounds lighter in my pocket.

I've really finished!!!

At last I've reached the end of all the wedding stationery and with six days to spare too. The last item was a wedding posting box in ivory. I only found out at the last minute that the card was textured so I couldn't stamp onto it so i had to stamp, emboss and then cut out each individual butterfly.
