I don't bounce back like I used to

Oh me oh my! I'm tired and aching and sore today. My feet are throbbing still and my knees feel like they are shot to pieces. I danced up a storm last night at the wedding, it was so much fun.

Back track first. The weather was not kind. Oh dear. It was miserable and raining and blustery and gloomy. And considering we were going to an outdoor wedding we were very apprehensive so we went armed with coats and umbrellas. This was the view out the car window as we were heading there. Note: I was *NOT* driving! ha.


Oh and yes the secret present. I really hope she liked it, it's unique I can say that. I made a subway sign wall art for her on canvas. Subway art seems to be the latest craze and as it happened I made one for us with our home town on it, and Mike instantly said "that's it" ! So this is the end result.


As with all weddings lately that I've been to, I have made a heart good luck charm for her wrist for after the wedding. I got this gorgeous sparkly material, champagne was the colour, and stitched their names on it, some pretty gauzy ribbon and a crystal completed it. Here it is laying on the gift.


And here's some photographs of the happy and beautiful bride, who was oblivious to the weather, the smile showed it all.



So the reception was a cocktail reception and there was so much fingerfood, ahhh my type of food! So very yummy. And the band was terrific. We danced and danced. It was a lot of fun. But oh boy I am paying the price today. And all I had was one glass of champagne being the designated driver. Is this a sign of getting old? All the aches and pains of a night of dancing? ha!

I've had quite an easy day of it today, Mr. G however has had to go to pipe band practice this afternoon! Oh dear.

Such a pretty list charm and a great sign - hope she liked her gifts - you clearly put lots of effort into them... How are the joints and bones and muscles today? Hope it'll ease!
