Look what I've done !!!



A precis of events :

Arrived at friend's house to stay overnight, went to a pub for dinner { one small glass of wine }, on to venue to see Nik Kershaw { brilliant }, took small glass of wine into auditorium, put it on the floor and kicked it over !!, back to friend's house, stayed up until 4.30 a.m. chatting { no wine, just coffee }, went to bed, woke at 7.30 a.m. needing the toilet, sat on toilet knowing I was going to be sick {have not been sick for years} ..... next thing I know, I'm laying in sick on the floor, knickers and leggings round my ankles !!! Had passed out, smashed my head on the adjoining wall which woke friend, friend had to break into the bathroom, she called ambulance !!! After all checks, the paramedics said I had had food poisoning ... result: black and blue face, painful neck and shoulders !!!






Thinking I'm looking a lot like Frankenstein's monster ..... you've got to laugh !!!

NUPTIALS at St. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL ..........




We've just had a wonderful weekend in the City of London as we went to a wedding at St. Paul's Cathedral ...... our second St. Paul's wedding !!! Our first, a few years ago, was my cousin's daughter ... my cousin has the OBE which entitles your children to marry there. This time it was our friend's daughter who was married at St. Paul's ..... if there was ever a wedding venue to symbolise London greatness, it would have to be St. Paul's Cathedral. There has been a church at this site since AD 604 .....


The ceremony is held at the east end of the crypt in the OBE chapel, also known as St Faith's Chapel ..... only the official photographer is allowed to take a few photographs ..... if you are seen taking photographs, you would be ejected from the building, forth with !!!




Me in my hat !!!



The reception was held at The Banking Hall, which overlooks The Bank of England. 



The Grade 11 listed building was designed in the 1930's and has a unique Art Deco charm.



This is me, jumping up and down and making a right fool of myself to Lulu's ' Shout ' ..... well, if you don't join in, you don't have any fun do you ?!!!
