Socks don't frighten me
Its been an exhausting few days in the run up to the wedding. Friday we took the cake to the hotel. 2 and 1/2 hour journey there, lots of diversions and roadworks but we made it. Then coming home 6 hours????? got lost leaving hotel ended up going through cannock birmingham to name a few and you don't want to go through Birmingham by accident. Then on to M6 a few miles and gridlock just after a junction. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Put radio on and apparently gas wagon had accident and both sides of motorway closed at next junction til one after. Thats really helpful when you have a mile to the junction and no one moving much. We finally got there and of course many others thought they would try same so all roads blocked. I hadn't had any food, no water in car, lots of pain you know the story. We stopped at beefeater for essential rehydration and food. Water was yuck, but it got the pills down so that was main thing. Had burger and chips, fairly good then back on to the road to hell. Through Stafford this time then back on motorway at a junction into stop start. We finally got home 6.30 after what should have been pleasant drive there and back. Oh the best laid plans of man and cat. Yesterday same journey for wedding, under 2 and 1/2 hours we were there. Wedding lovely, bride gorgeous but aren't they all? Beautiful old church very atmospheric and cool. Back to the hotel for champagne reception(hey cats quite like a sip of champagne you know). Wonderful spread, lots of catching up with family some of who we hadn't seen since last wedding 5 years ago. Cake looked stunning, DH stopped getting grey hairs with worry. Bride and groom thrilled to bits with how it looked. Told other nephew, he gets toaster when he gets married. No more cakes for us. Well for DH. I'm just the supervisor and general bossy boots:). Home around 9pm, didn't stay for evening disco as I was so exhausted and in pain. Did a couple of rows on the socks while watching the St Trinians train robbery film I recorded in afternoon. Mindless fun very enjoyable. Today, exhaustion, relief cake is done, socks looking at me asking when I'm coming back to the fray. Also on needles, or needle the cream crochet throw for my craft room. Its around 4 foot square now and looking good. Photos later on this also. Had my hair cut really short Thursday , a bob with long sides, short back(instead of the proverbial short back 'n' sides) Lots of nice comments at wedding so must look ok. It took peoples attention away from the red nose, dry skin from the antibiotics and chest infection so that was main thing.
