Happy Occasion...

Went to the wedding (my cousin and his wife who has become a very good friend over the 12 or so years they've been together), and it was extraordinarily nice. Shouldn't be surprising given the extremely good people involved, but anyway, it was. The wedding was here (scroll down to the bottom of the page) and the reception here

Despite self-sabotage (turned the alarm clock off, and woke up 5 mins after the original intended train left) and the efforts of the National Rail site (which then gave me not only the wrong train time but the wrong station from London, leaving me flitting around at a completely deserted Cannon Street at 10 on a Saturday morning - those guys at National Rail just love having fun, don't they?) got there in the end...

Here's a picture. My aunt Barbara, Kevin and Kate.



It was, of course extremely, bonecrunchingly cold; there were lots of jokes about not needing confetti if it snowed... the Symphony wrap wasn't quite adequate but I was very glad to have it. Once we got to the hotel we soon warmed up with much champagne, lovely canap├ęs and a wonderful meal...

Glad you made it and had a good time. I love rail enquiries. I was once told to travel from Cambridge to King's Lynn by going to Stevenage, then catching a train to Ely, then one from Ely to King's Lynn. Don't even start to think about it!
