Wedding No1 - Natasha and Charlie

We had another whirlwind trip to the UK for our first wedding of 2016, our niece Natasha and Charlie's. Held in the pretty church of St Peters in Terwick followed by a lovely reception at The Old Thorns near Liphook. It was great for all their family and friends to be together for their special day. There were some beautiful touches on the tables, slate coasters with painted lavender motifs plus lavender flavoured chocolate for the favours, handmade wire animals for the table centres and an amazing wedding cake, 1 layer chocolate, 1 layer lavender and 1 layer that can’t remember and it was so delicious. We wish them both all the very best for the future. In January our great-niece Eleanor Rose was born, so it was lovely to meet her for the first time, love those cute chubby cheeks. And I hope you all appreciate the new trend set by Joshua, men wearing fascinators.

It’s taken a few days to post this because when we returned, we had no internet or phone for 4 days and Roger had also picked up a stinking cold. It turned out we had a problem with our line, which Orange fixed when they said they would, but they couldn’t fix Rogers cold.

    I came back from the UK at Xmas with a terrible cold and cough and N stayed clear. He has just had it now and felt rally bad, thankfully though no cough. Hope Roger is now over the worst. There seems to be a bit if it around so hope you stay well. Have a good week Diane xox
