It was the wedding of my Granddaughter Kirsty to her partner Kerry on May 7th - a truly wonderful day for us all. Here is Kirsty looking stunning in her amazing dress, with my daughter K walking her to Kerry.
And here's me, Jim and Jack and Kitty, big son Jason's 2.
The Bridesmaids. 3 of Kirsty's friends plus Lina, Kirsty's young sister, looking far older than her 13 years! She's the one looking directly at the camera.
This is my favourite photo of Kirsty and Kerry. Kirsty is just so photogenic. Yes, Kerry is a woman in case you're wondering.
Kirsty showing her 'something blue'. Proper 'Sex and The City' shoes. Aren't they fabulous?
The 'Best Person' on the far left was Luisa. I'm sure many of you remember that she almost died last year after an operation that went wrong. Wow - look at her now! Then lots of ushers, including my son Ben, who came over from Spain for the occasion. Ben's third in from the right and next to him is my Grandson Tony (Kirsty's brother).
A kiss for Gran from Kitty. She's just adorable.
It was lovely to see Ben again and get lots of hugs from him!
More hugs from Big son Jason and his lovely family, Sam, Kitty and Jack.
Of course we all took hundreds of photos! If anyone wants to see them all they're on Facebook and here is the link to the album:
I warn you, there are about 140! It was a fabulous day in all respects and Kirsty and Kerry loved every moment.
Jim and I had stayed for a couple of days in our Worthing house with Jim's daughter Jenny, husband Matt and gorgeous son Sonny. We hired a car and drove up to the wedding then drove back down again after a night in the hotel where the wedding was held, then breakfast with those who stayed.
We took a leisurely drive to Worthing on the Sunday 8th, visiting the house and gardens of Audley End en route. We have been there before but only viewed the gardens, but this time we toured the house too. It's a lovely place with sweeping gardens designed by Capability Brown.
We spent ages photographing a coot and its babies on the river! They must have been only a few hours old as you could still see eggs in the nest when Mum got up and turned round.
They were so cute!
Back at Worthing, Jim went to the park with Jenny and Sonny. He loved the swings.
On the Monday we visited Ali, Joe and Poppy. It was a very full visit!
Jim pushing Ali and Poppy on one of the park rides. Since then, Ali and Poppy have been over to Ireland to visit us - more of that on the next post.
As Monday wore on, I didn't feel at all well and in fact I had a bad stomach for a week! It seems several people at the wedding were also poorly so maybe we all picked up a bug. Here I am at home again on the Tuesday, sleeping on the couch with Buster!!
We have been working hard in the garden and have lots of photos - for another day I think.
