The Reception and Other News!

It was the final part of the wedding yesterday. A reception in a beautiful Manor House Venue in Hampshire. We got there, almost, before the Sat Nav decided we had arrived, yet we were in the middle of a construction site!

A few moments of panic, then we found it, tucked away!


We were lucky, it a glorious day!


Being as it was a fusion wedding, Indian to English, the entertainment was mixed and there was this great moving band serenading groups of people as they mingled, and nibbled on canapes! That’s the Bride’s Sister In Law, having a boogie!


The happy couple. Don’t they look gorgeous!

Lil Princess loved it, running around the manicured lawns, then posing for photos! Oh, then the spinning round on the dancefloor until you got dizzy bit! And there was a liquid nitrogen ice cream stall, where you could order your ice cream and it was made and frozen in front of you! Cool!!!!


There were also the obligatory peacocks roaming around the stately home grounds, and we happened upon this albino peacock!


And here is me, in my blue garb, ready for the party!

Oh and in other news, A very proudΒ mummy here!

Hubby Dearest and Lil Man didn’t go as it was the football season’s last match and the end of season team presentation.

Well, what a way to finish it! He scored a goal, and came home with 2 trophies! The one that all players get for completing, and a special one for commitment to the team!


We were late coming home, so once I had scraped Lil Princess off her car seat, changed her and got her to bed, he was fast asleep. I’m off to hug and congratulate him now!

Have a wonderful Monday Peeps!

    I used to go to this Indian restaurant in college and it was great! The owner and a couple of the cooks were from India. I wrote a review about it for a newspaper. I knew the food and ingredients were pretty authentic. My favorite was the Naan, curry and mango kulfi. I’m sure they have lots of entrees at a wedding! I would love to attend an Indian wedding someday. It sounds really exciting!

    Wow, what a wonderful weekend that was for you and your whole family! That looks like such a gorgeous place for a wedding (the bride is beautiful). It must have been really special to experience such a mixed wedding. It is amazing what an effort they have made for this which is jus wonderful and must have made it all even more special! So happy, you and Lil Princess had such a lovely day together! And now my biggest congratulations to Lil Man! I am happy for him most of all because of the struggles he went through the past days and weeks. It is wonderful that he could celebrate such a success!!! Have a great Monday, Sis! Here is a holiday today, Are you off too?
