So, I’m the first to admit its been a while!
Planning a wedding and work being really busy has meant by the time I get home and cook dinner all I want to do is chill but I’m back!
So I’ll start with the wedding itself. It was the most amazing day from what I can remember. I had visions of me staying really classy until the evening guests arrived and then getting well oiled. Instead, I drank 4 bottles of champagne before the ceremony from 8am and staggered down the aisle then proceeded to do shots the second I came out of the chapel, bit the head off my cake and made an absolute show of myself.
This is Connie below before I bit her face off!
I think this picture taken shortly after the meal shows how successful the sober plan was.
I have no recollection of my first dance, the band, the DJ or basically anything after the meal! I don’t recall this photo being taken and it’s still light outside!
From all recollections, everyone had a fab time!
We took a week off after the wedding to come down to earth and allow the alcohol to leave our system. Rehab may have been a better option however as we just ended up drinking another 3 or 4 times in that week!
We did have an unreal meal at The wilderness thanks to Charlie’s sister and my new sister in law and her partner! I cannot recommend it enough! The tasting menu was unreal and the atmosphere is amazing. The staff were extremely attentive. The best culinary experience I’ve had so far!
So what else has happened? I now have another Nephew called Arthur who was born 6 days before the wedding. My sister called me to say ‘don’t panic but I think im in labour’ I got there within 20 minutes and she was contracting every 3 minutes and she told me not to panic! A few hours later we were holding baby Arthur. It was the most amazing thing to witness other than holding Hannahs’s hand and telling her not to worry about hurting me at which point she bit me, not really what I meant but im sure it hurt less than what she was going through! I won’t lie I was bloody relieved he came just in time, I had visions of slipping over Hannah’s waters down the aisle and breaking a leg!
It’s 2 weeks today until the honeymoon and I cannot wait to be sat on the beach in St Lucia drinking a cocktail trying not to get harpooned! The Carribean, in particular, St Lucia is an absolute dream location so I feel like I’ve won the lottery being able to go there and especially to a sandals resort! I’ll be making the most of the super all-inclusive let me tell you!
That’s it for now. I’m sure ill have some tales to tell after the honeymoon I just wanted to check in and let you all know im still alive.
Until next time Ciao for now xxx
