Slowly getting back to normal

Our guests have now left us; Shannon, Ryan and the boys left on Thursday to spend a week with Shannon's sister Theresa and her family in Newquey; while Darren and Natasha left on Friday to fly back to South Africa. Our house is quieter once more and we're slowly getting back into our routines. I didn't take nearly as many photos as I had intended to while everyone was here; we were too busy catching up and enjoying ourselves ;o). I have got a few but haven't edited them yet so will post them as I get to them.
Yesterday Jon, Emily and I went down to Eastleigh in Hampshire to meet up with Michelle and Matthew for a lunch where all the parents could meet before the wedding. Jon and Ann (his first wife) hadn't seen each other for about 27 years so I'm sure it was quite strange for both of them. However, I'm really glad we got together as I'm sure everyone will feel that little bit more relaxed on the day of the wedding. It's not long to go now, only another 7 weeks! Emily has her half term break in a couple of weeks and we're hoping to go down to Eastleigh again and then on to Poole to have a look around and see where might be suitable for taking wedding photos. I think during the break we will also have to start looking for wedding outfits, shoes, etc. I have no clue at this stage what I'll be looking for but hopefully something will just feel right and it'll be job done.
A group photo from yesterday.
From left going clockwise round the table: Ann, Jon, Emily, Mary and John (Matthew's parents), Michelle, Matthew and Rowland (Ann's husband). Josh didn't want to be in the photo and seeing as I was taking the photo, I'm not in it either ;o)
I'm going to leave it at that for now as it's time for me to feed the family :o). I hope you've had a good weekend, whatever you've been doing.


  1. Exciting times! :-) I'm so pleased you all had such a good time xx

  2. Good to see you back Rhona - yes, you do have exciting times ahead of you!
