My blogging break is over, and I will be visiting you all pronto, I have missed you all.
Two of my daughters now have the same size feet as me! so I can borrow and try not to destroy even more shoes. Hurrah!
My current obsession is the Dior 'New Look' Silhouette
I did a lot of this whilst away
'Large, white, medium dry........ don't be shy'
the Renewal of Vows or Blessing made me quite nervous
I love Gretna Green
here's a little information if you wish to read about The Famous Blacksmiths
that's our hotel
about 90 seconds away
Now I normally disapprove of public hair roller displays, but we needed feeding as the Blessing was at 3.30pm
The waiting room
The room hasn't changed,
neither had Mr F
This is Ian, he delivered the Blessing,
We had no idea what would happen, but the Blessing took half an hour, it was beautiful and romantic
we were read several Celtic Love Poems
a verse of one
Be circled in love
Keep darkness out, keep light within
Keep fear out, keep peace within
Keep hatred out, keep love within
Deep Peace of the Running Waves to you.
Deep Peace of the Flowing Air to you.
Deep Peace of the Quiet Earth to you.
Deep Peace of the Shining Stars to You.
Deep Peace of the Son of Peace to You.
of course I whinged and sniffed through most of it
Mr F loved the kilt (so did I, phwoar!!)
The veil was eventually attached to the original tiara I wore
Something Old (Shoes, Bag, Tiara, Petticoat, brooch)
Something New (Dress £35 in the Sale)
Something Borrowed (Littlest's earrings)
Something Blue (nail varnish and ring)
Sassy B had 2 birthday celebrations
Saturday was 'pre-drinks'
........which isn't a party.....even though it it sounds like one
but lots of her friends came round had lots of drinks and music played,
they left around midnight to go out
Monday was her official birthday
Our new additions, two beautiful girls
Jaffa Cake ( 8 weeks old, known as Jaffa, friendly, likes cuddles, is teeny tiny and cries when her sister decides to be very naughty and hides behind the washing machine, attempts to escape through the narrow gap at the top of the fire, decides to go on adventures and plays hide and seek....a lot)
Crumble ( 8 weeks old, even teenier, eats a lot and takes on the bigger cats who currently have the biggest huff, ever.....she is fearless though and is a total, total menace)
We took them for a check up at the Vets on Monday
Crumble has a heart murmur, we are hoping it's minor
(and also got her insured, just in case - the vet was talking heart specialists and x-rays)
we got them on Saturday, it really is like having toddlers again
I am sleeping downstairs to keep an eye on them (Mr F did the first 3 days, collectively we must have had about 16 hours sleep in 4 days)
I am trying to establish a bedtime routine with them
Mr F is in Edinburgh until Friday due to his new job
2 children are back in school
and I have no idea when these little menaces can be left alone,
So I will see you all soon..........hopefully
I seem to have lost my camera charger, bugger
Melanie has produced another VOGOFF triumph!! brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!!
