A Wedding In The Family

I have been sadly neglecting my blog of late and also my lovely blogging friends. I do so apologise. There was a reason. My son was married last week. I was not involved in the arrangements because of the distance so that was not keeping me busy but I had to lose some weight to fit into the outfit I bought last year so............... no baking and not very exciting meals. I also daren't have ventured into the blogs as the temptation to try would have been too much. Anyhow my will power paid off and I lost the weight and a last minute try on of the dress showed the weight loss had worked. I had to make a quick dash to the dressmakers to have it taken in!


We had a wonderful day. The venue was Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, London. As you can see by the photographs it was a perfect place and the views over the city were wonderful. Mother nature was kind and the sun shone and was quite warm. A perfect wedding. I thought I would share it with you.

I wish I could re run the day as it was so perfect.. I hope you enjoy sharing a little of it with me.

Now it's back to the kitchen and some decent cooking and baking. No doubt the weight will go on again but who cares.

Brenda, I thought the impending wedding was the reason you had forsaken your blog! I have clicked on a few times over the past weeks, lovely to see you back!
