Christie wedding

I love a good wedding. I love the fresh faced innocence of true love getting married. There was something extra special about yesterday's Christie wedding, I totes welled up at the vows the resonate as Paul and I celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I felt all smooshy and emotional. 
To Mr and Mrs Rory and Kaye Christie, congratulations on your marriage!! We loved sharing your day, here's to happily ever after xxx

We are in Scotland for a week!! Paul's cousin is getting married (today!) and all of the Christies have returned to Troon, in Ayr (where Paul and most of his cousins were born). 
The drive took the best part of 8 hours, and we decided to leave at 2.30am to get the most out of no traffic and potential kidlet sleepage.. I was the only one who slept!
The journey was sponsored by Harry Potter and The BFG audio books, and the sound track to 'Frozen' and the musical 'The lion king'. 
We arrived at Paul's uncle's house, said hello to most of the family before going
to check in at our caravan on a haven park.

After the wedding and all the family engagements this weekend, we've got a week of relaxed activates planned. Paul is excited to take the children round the area he remembers from his childhood. Bliss.

Thank you

Dear Paul

Thank you for taking over this year, for being strong enough for both us and taking the rough with the smooth, with the rough. 

I know you don't get it, but you are always trying to see beyond my 'block' and look to the positive. You have made the process of being distant from life possible and supported my hesitant return.

How you look after the children on 'Daddy days' fills me with love and pride and joy. They adore the projects you take on with them, the trips out and the treats.

Love you so much, thank you for the last ten years, here's to the next xxxxxx

Bournemouth baby

Vikki and I took ourselves off for a girly weekend in Bournemouth, we booked a lovely hotel a stones throw from the beach and hopped on a train.. After we had been with Lucy and treat ourselves to some new ink!

The ink I had before

The proposed new ink

The finished (so sore SORE  S O R E!) product

Our weekend went a little like this

Once we arrived in Bournemouth and had checked in, we relaxed in the room for a while, had a little drink and then headed out for the evening.

We had a stroll on the beachside promenade and a ride on the funfair 

Finished up with a late Indian banquet

And then a massive fry up in the hotel the following morning.

A glorious weekend! Thank you for coming to the tattoo shop with us Lucy, thank you for taking me to Bournemouth Vikki xxxxx
