Despite the on-off weather, I'm pleased to say that us Brits put on a 'bloody good show'. It was weekend of music, dancing, celebration and laughter ... and apparently the Queen had a bit of a bash too. ;-)
Mr P. and I were away from London celebrating the marriage of our good friends Mr and Mrs Robinson. The weather stayed dry for us, if a bit grey, as we supped Pimms, quaffed champagne and ate what I can honestly say was one of the nicest cheesecakes I have ever tasted!
It also provided a lovely opportunity to catch up with people that I had not seen since the Bride's hen party, way back in March. Many of you will recall that this was the weekend that I started to lose my hair, so it was nice to be able to tell them how well I'm doing - and that the end is now nearly in sight!
Indeed it was celebrations all round as we drank, danced (to superb music provided by Mr P. and Russy G.) and generally made merry to the wee small hours.
|The happy couple ... who, yes, really did trust me to do a Bible reading! I was very honoured.|
But now we're all back in London. The Queen is apparently still celebrating but for most of us the party is over and we're back into the old routine.
Which for me, of course, is getting ready for one more dose of chemotherapy next week. I'm not looking forward to it - obviously - but it will be good to finally get it out of the way.
And then we can have another party!
