After the wedding we stayed with Issy and Tom in Handforth. Ryan was very pleased to see Jessie, as usual.
Then on Sunday [our 7th wedding anniversary] various friends came over to visit, which was lovely.
More photos here.

Poynton Wedding

We were up in Poynton last Saturday for the wedding of Andy & Hayley, Lesley's sister.

Paul was an usher, while Lesley and Emma were bridesmaids.

Despite getting changed in a pub car park with only minutes to spare, the Smith family made it to the church in time!

Cup Final Fever

Ryan and I were on the edge of our seats watching the thrilling FA Cup Final yesterday.
Tuesday's CCC Playoff semi-final between Derby and Southampton was infinitely more entertaining.... until Saints went out on penalties.

Great Uncle Great Aunt

On Saturday my nephew Marcus paid a visit with his partner Emma and their new son Harrison. It was the first chance we've had to chat properly since taking him to see Marilyn Manson for his 16th birthday [great gig!].

Ryan and Alex were also pleased to see their cousin and his family, although Alex gave us some dirty looks when we had a cuddle with Harrison!

Cake Hole

I was so late home yesterday, thanks to the Blackwall Tunnel closure, that there was no time for Alex's birthday cake until today. He already had one earlier at nursery, but then you can never have too much cake, can you?

Birthday Boy

We can hardly believe that it was a year ago today that Alex was born.

As you can see, his favourite activities are making music, and dancing, and what a little groover he is!

I Bought A Sledgehammer

I had a smashing time last weekend, knocking down a wall by the patio. Very enjoyable.
Carting all the bricks down to the tip was less enjoyable though.
