Our Wedding, Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 and the last post of our wedding photos. I didn't mean for there to be such a gap between the two parts so sorry about that. You can see part one here if you missed it and want a gander.

Lemon Meringue Pie

This lemon meringue pie recipe has been adapted from my Mum's Good Housekeeping cookbook which is almost 30 years old! It's been a staple dessert in my family for years, brought out for graduations, birthdays and "just because" days. I adapted this particular pie for my Dad's birthday to be gluten free so that I could have some. The recipe does say to wait until it's cool to eat but ours has never made it to that stage. It's delicious hot out of the oven but use a bowl, the filling has a mind of it's own.

Five Happy Things

This week has been both incredibly stressful and completely wonderful. A big project at work came to an end in a flurry of activity and a huge amount of photocopying. It was my first one and I think it went well even if it did end up being a little chaotic at the end. Yesterday we made the most of the sunshine and headed into town. Byron went for a haircut and left me in the record store where I bought The Cure's"Standing On A Beach" and The Monkee's self titled vinyl.

1. Byron treated me when the project all wrapped up to a trip to Ikea, where I finally bought a table for my herbs which were getting scorched on the windowsill.

Our Wedding, Part One

Welcome to Part One of our wedding pictures, I've had to split it into two posts because otherwise it's just too photo heavy. This update features mainly the "getting ready" photos and a few of the ceremony. I can't believe it's already been three months since we said "I do" and I'm so thrilled to have the pictures back so I can share them not only with you lovely folk, but with my parents too who have also been waiting patiently. Although, I did give them a few sneak peeks.

Birthday in London 2015

Another year and another birthday trip to London for my Mum. This is the third time we have done this trip and we always find new things to see. The past two years - see here and here - we have seen a show but this year nothing really called out to us so we went sight seeing instead. Mum has never been to any of the London museum's so these were high on our list, as well as visiting Notting Hill to catch a glimpse of THAT blue door.
