Ray & Sarah Wedding - Part 2


My camera skills.... not good anymore! I am SO gutted that this photo has come out blurred! However, I am asking if I can pay for a copy of some of the very very nice photos that Gary took instead.

But anyway - here they are! The happy couple, Mr & Mrs Ray and Sarah Houton!

It's such a shame that the wedding cerimony - which was planned so beautifully - didn't have a few more Catholics involed... You see, they had a Chatholic wedding at our local Cathedrol. And no one knew the words to any of the hymns, no one knew the correct responses to the Fathers speeches.... BUT the brass band who played the music for the hymns were wonderfull and very nice to listen to.... and we did TRY to sing the right words in the right places to the right tune.... The father was getting VERY pissed off with us all, saying before the last hymn "and if we could ALL SING hymn number....." blah blah blah... Sorry guys, but so few of us have any real religion that we really did come unstuck!

Word has got out about my enagement to Yorkie too, so after the cermony as we were all sipping down champers and so on, we got congrats too, as did Gary and Jill who are now expecting their first child! They asked Yorkie to God Father too! YAY!

After the wedding we skipped across the road to the Catholic Social and had a HUGE buffee (spelling!!) and speeches. Sarah's dad made a lovely speech which seemed to almost bring Sarah to tears (Sweet!), then we all tooked into the gub and booze and have a merry time of it, before taking off to get changed for the night do (when I posted that last message).

The night do was brilliant too! They had a live band that were brilliant, and even had some of us up infront perfoprming some songs and stuff. They even had Simon do an Elvis stint - with the bands front man doing the "arms" for him (see flickr). AND THEN THERE WAS MORE FOOD!

As usual Gemma casued a fuss though - Mark made the fatal error of sitting in the only available seat on the table - which was next to mine - and tried to have a conversation with me. Gemma flipped out becasue he wasn't sat next to her talking to her. He wasn't allowed to move from her side all night (just like Fran and Simons wedding last year. I invited Mark down to see Angie when she comes over before going to Uni, and he said he darn't because of Gemma. I said she was invited too, and his responce was "have you got a death wish?". Not good!)

All in all it was a brilliant do!

BIG CONGRATS TO YOU BOTH!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
