We need a whore for the garden

Ok, I am hideously late with my day in the life, but better late than never!

Day in the life – Saturday 2nd August

Wake up early, thankfully it’s sunny as yesterday was such a wash out.  Get up, start faffing around.  Have a bath and then a shower and get out and Lee has made breakfast, hurrah!  It’s a bagel with square sausage and potato scones.  Nom!

Start ironing clothes to wear to the wedding we’re off to.  Iron my £10 Tesco dress and then Lee’s shirt.  Do hair and make up whilst Lee is in the bath and then prepare one of the wedding presents for the happy couple:

Get dressed and ready to go, leave house and nip into corner shop for a card from my parents for the wedding.  Cross road to wait for taxi. Lee spots a wedding bus outside the bookies across the road and then notices it says Louise and Martin on the front – the very couple who’s wedding we are going to.  Cross road and ask driver if we are indeed on the same page and we are! He lets us on the bus and we trundle off to the hotel next to the SECC where most of the guests are staying.  We pick up various people including my sister in law Aleks, and we head to the venue, House For An Art Lover.

Arrive at the venue, it’s hot and sunny.  The gardens are beautiful and there’s a piper outside.  Lots of people milling around, Martin is looking a bit nervous.  Martin is my brother’s best friend, so I have known him all my life.  We all spent about a week together at the Polish wedding extravaganza last year and got on great, so we are very pleased to be invited to their wedding.  Take some photos and then head inside for the ceremony.

The ceremony is taking place in a beautiful room, very bright and airy.  The bride is about 20 minutes late in the end, the ceremony, led by our former school chaplain, passes without a hitch and is actually very funny and sweet.  After that, we all head outside for the wedding photos, and then have a glass or 2 of pink champagne before dinner.  We are seated at a table with lots of nice people and the food is lovely and we have a rare time.

Speeches next – they are very funny and Andrew’s (my brother) is great – heartwarming and funny at the same time.  After dinner we head off downstairs for the dancing bit and have a great time, singing and dancing and doing the Dashing White Sergeant and the Gay Gordons and generally having a ball.

Then back on the wedding bus and home!
