Wedding Present list

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

The only thing on my daughter's list, last month, was a fat quarter or a piece of fabric that meant something to the guest so that a quilt can be made to commemorate the day. They didn't need stuff, they've been living together long enough to have everything they need without adding more stuff to it that wouldn't be their choice. They'd also booked their honeymoon ages ago - using a shed load of air miles they'd accrued.

Of course, it helps if you have a lovely mummy who is good at that kind of thing :lol: . It is indeed a lovely idea.

We have been invited to lunch on 26 Nov.
We have accepted, but we still don't have the address :lol:

We went.

The house is lovely, 2 Victorian cottages knocked together, but it is very isolated.
There is no other building within walking distance.

The lunch was a fun event - there were 11 of us and we all knew each other well.
The bride and groom appeared happy, but I am still concerned about the groom and the fact that he is now 15 miles away from all his pals.

Glad it worked out well WW! Guess the groom is grown up and must work things out for himself - sometimes love is blind but maybe he doesn't mind :)
