Some of you will remember I went to a beautiful wedding in London in May well the groom's Mum has just sent me this lovely official photo of the groom and his brother who was the best man. Michael and I were just sat behind them in church and this is one of the moments when the Vicar made one of his funny remarks he was a great guy and made the ceremony very special and personal for them. Its a lovely photo of two great boys..

I hope you enjoyed the Bank holiday wasn't the weather awful. We had our Son and  Daughter in Law staying with us and had a lovely evening out on Saturday to celebrate their Second Wedding Anniversary. 
I hope you enjoy the rest of the week whatever you have planned.
Thank you for all the fabulous comments on my recent post you are all so very kind. Hugs Carole x
