Well Friday just passed was my daughters wedding day to her best pal Matt, they were married ten years to the day since they first went out together.
Matt asked me 14 months ago could he marry my daughter Sam & I agreed on the spot with a big YES. I was asked to not say a word to Sam as Matt hadn’t even spoken to her about it. But when he did ask her there was no hesitation from her in saying Yes as well.
The pair of them then spent the following 14 months meticulously planning their wedding day and every detail great & small was looked into & agreed upon. The last couple of months though were quieter as they had already completed most of the planning earlier in the count-down.
The hen party was first with all the girls having an ‘it’s a knockout’ event before heading off into Manchester for a couple of drinks & a meal. Then it was the turn of the stag do with a trip to Chester Races & a final flourish of food & beers in Manchester. Both events were a success & a big thank you must go out to all those that attended as well as those that planned the days for both Sam & Matt, you did them both proud.
My daughter Sam is due to marry the man of her dreams Matthew this summer in Timperley.
The clock is now counting down to the wedding day & we are all looking forward to putting our best clothes on & helping celebrate their marriage.
We’ve had a lovely Sunday afternoon with the family.
Mum & dad had invited us over for Sunday roast & we had the day all mapped out with a short spell of shopping in Altrincham, followed by a visit to my brother & his family, then over to see Sam, Matt & Harry before catching up with mum & dad.
However it didn’t all go to plan as Lewis was struggling to free himself from the clutches of his bed! He’d been out late two nights on the bounce in Wigan!
So unfortunately a visit to see my brother & family had to get knocked on the head! Sorry Rob, Sarah, William and Max 🙁
Harry seemed a cheerful little fellow and was playing with uncle ‘big little chef’ (AKA Lewis) and uncle squash (AKA Josh) before he tripped near the TV & bumped his head just above his left eye, which resulted in a quick trip to the chemist then Altrincham Accident & Emergency Unit who applied a steristrp. After a tearful couple of minutes he seemed cheerful enough and the scar shouldn’t be too noticeable when gets older.
Sunday roast at mum & dads was Roast Beef & Yorkshire puddings with all the trimmings, a bottle of red & dad’s finest malt whiskey to wash it down with nom nom.
Thanks mum & dad x
