Good morning, everyone. It's past six o'clock and everything is still pitch black outside as sunrise time isn't until almost seven o'clock. I love these dark morning, they make me feel warm and cosy in my own little domain with curtains shutting out the dark.
Yesterday was a really pleasant one. Busy though, with a lot of comings and goings.
It started off with an early morning walk to Morrisons for some crayons and sharpeners Beth asked for (to keep the four little bridesmaids happy before the wedding) and a few bits and bobs for me. Then I came home and got my make up on before setting out to Beth's to pick her and Alex up, take her to the wedding venue and Alex back to mine. I had a bit of a panic in Writtle as there were slow moving queues by the petrol station but it's a wider road and those of us going past were able to form a third lane. To be honest, if I hadn't been going somewhere, I might have been tempted to join it but, as it was, I got past with a hold up of around ten minutes which was OK.
Once back home, I cooked dinner for me and Al - very nice too - before getting changed and setting out.
The wedding was lovely. It wasn't the least bit formal, the ceremony was outside but the party afterwards inside. No formalities - no speeches or 'cutting the cake' just a really good party. There was a live band and you can't stop children from dancing, can you?
The buffet was great - things like chicken dippers, beef or halloumi sliders, etc.
Al and I came home around nine, I dropped him back (queues at the petrol station close to Tescos) and then snuggled up at home for a little while.
I do have some photos but I haven't uploaded them yet. I'll do that today and might post a few tomorrow - if they are any good. You can never tell with snapshots.
Today I'm having an easy day with lots of R&R. I'll harvest some stuff at the allotment and water but no digging. There's Strictly to catch up on and ditto for some vlogs I follow and I'd like to watch that thing from the royal family about Prince Philip which I missed earlier and the also first Bake Off programme.
So quite a lot of restful things to do.
Have a lovely day and be safe. xx
