Did I tell anyone that we got married two weeks ago? After 19 years. You would be forgiven for thinking that it had been a quiet, shy affair…hidden from view like a little dormouse squeak. WELL IT WASN’T! IT WAS HUGE!!!       I just didn’t blog about it.

Here’s a pic  though:

Love is in the air, and Lismore Public Hall.

The day was truly scrumptuous with highlights in the form of the church ceremony with abundant singing of such a musical crowd; The twinkle in the eye of Roderick the minister; The Ken and Barby bikes (decorated by Lynn and the girls) on which we cycled from church to hall; The horse and carriage in a downpour juggling spotty umbrellas and a glass of champagne; Tom’s magnificent piping; Duncan’s gaelic song; the normally dreary hall transformed into a magical mystery world of bunting, tin can tea lights and ivy…

and this was a wedding in which so many were so involved, in the food making, hall preparations, flowers. It was a real community affair.

So how to say thank you. Well, I’ve been making thank you lampshades  for those who spent hours grafting on behalf of my love. This has become a consuming activity as I embroider and applique each act of kindness.

Thank you for the delicious dish...

I suppose, at some point, one has to return to the normality of life and I am about to do so since my delicious thank you lamp making sessions are about to expire. However, I intend to take a good few pictures  before they find lamp stands and new homes. Watch this space.
