I rely on you (2)

November 10th, 2010 · 2 Comments · hayley, laughter, marriage, wedding

I have no idea why I decided to do this, but today’s post is an homage to the late great Hovis Presley, whose poem “I rely on you” was read at our wedding by fellow NaBloPoMo’er Scott. This morning as I got ready for work, I mentally added a few verses of my own which […]

Now and then

September 11th, 2009 · 2 Comments · holiday, lucy, oliver, wedding

Three years before our honeymoon in Sant Elm and two days after Oliver’s first birthday, we took Oliver to the same location. This lead to many opportunities on the honeymoon to reflect on how our adorable baby has grown into a beautiful boy. The last time we came to Sant Elm he was crawling around […]

The Honeymoon

September 4th, 2009 · No Comments · lucy, oliver, wedding

A few days after the wedding, when our American guests had flown back over the pond, we jetted off to spend a little over a week on the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean Sea. We stayed in the little town (perhaps even a village) of Sant Elm on its west coast, where […]

The Wedding

August 22nd, 2009 · 5 Comments · lucy, marriage, oliver, wedding

It would be impossible to even start to attempt to cover our wedding day in a single post, so I’m afraid you are going to be hearing about it for some time. But here’s a summary. What a fantastic day! Thanks to everyone who came along and made our wedding day a truly wonderful event […]

The evening of the day

August 21st, 2009 · 2 Comments · wedding

Tomorrow Hayley and I get married. Man that’s come round fast. This evening our 2 days of arrivals from the US and UK culminated in a pre-wedding dinner for 25, a kind of Rehearsal Dinner without any rehearsal. (Actually we did a rehearsal on Monday and I might post video of that after the event.) […]

Time flies…

August 3rd, 2009 · No Comments · bike, islabike, lucy, oliver, wedding

If time flies when you are having fun then I am Funtime Franky from Chucklesville, Laughter County. Or more likely I am realising there is WAY too much to do before the wedding. Consequently posting to this blog is an activity that hasn’t been getting much of a look-in, which is a shame as there’s […]

A short essay on time

July 21st, 2009 · 2 Comments · clothes, oliver, wedding

Time is not linear. Remember how long summers were when you were a kid? Long.Now they shoot past, right? Right. But that’s nothing. If you want to see how fast time can fly, watch the clock in the run-up to your wedding. I reckon not even Einstein could explain how the time is disappearing so […]

Hayley’s Hen Weekend

June 28th, 2009 · No Comments · wedding

Hayley spent this weekend with about 20 female friends in Manchester. Her Hen weekend started at lunchtime on Saturday and ran through to early afternoon the following day. Meanwhile your truly had sole charge of our offspring. I was a little nervous about it, not because I lacked confidence in my abilities to care for […]

The number of confirmed American guests at our wedding rose from 2 to 6 yesterday evening, when Hayley’s friends Marcy and Jay confirmed they will be coming over with their two sons. Hayley was a nanny for their elder son, Josh, and I know it will mean a lot to her to see them again […]

The Dress – No image available

March 30th, 2009 · No Comments · clothes, hayley, wedding

The wedding dress has been ordered. Hayley has spent a lot, hell ALL her spare time recently looking for her wedding dress. Bridal shops, wedding fares and retail outlets all got a look-in. And as these places don’t allow kids to come in and wreck their expensive gowns, I have been able to spend some […]
