Well, my little bloggy friends, hot off the press, I can tell you that there's going to be a wedding in the family, so we are all very excited.
My youngest daughter (the one with the two little ones) will be getting married on the 11th June. The final arrangements were put in place yesterday. It will only be a small, intimate affair, with family and a few close friends.
They will be pledging their love for each other at Dartington Hall, which is a lovely medieval group of buildings just 20 minutes from where we live. They have picked that particular location because it really means something to them, as they visit quite a lot to stroll around the magnificent gardens.
It would be wonderful if the sun shone on the day, so that we can relax with a glass of champagne whilst strolling around the grounds.
They will then be returning to our home for the reception, provided by outside Caterers. It is so expensive these days to have a reception anywhere decent. Most places were quoting over £1,000 to provide a meal for twenty people, which my daughter really objected to!
The daughter and her partner are not materialistic in any way, much preferring the simpler things of life. So we shall try to do something a bit special back here and have lots of flowers and champagne! We will look into hiring a Marquee to put up in the garden in case we have a typically British summer's day. They have a friend who will provide music for the evening so that there can be some dancing, so I'm sure it will be a lovely, relaxing day.
Well, I guess that this has turned out to be another romantic post!!
