Kate and Harry’s Wedding

On Wednesday April 19th our gardener Martyn came to work in our garden.  On Friday 21st April  Beth drove me and Cathy to my niece Kate’s wedding to her long term partner Harry (Harrison) for the evening event.  The evening reception was at the Garstang Best Western Hotel from 7.30 till 1am.  Cathy was thrilled that she had been able to get the time off to be at the wedding, as working away meant she often missed such occasions.  They had got married earlier that day at the same venue, so by the time we arrived their children aged 2 ½ and 4 were already in bed.  We had two rooms booked, Cathy in one, as she confirmed later that she could come and Beth and I in the other.  We relaxed and decided to have a snack meal to keep us going for the later refreshment at the event.  Cathy and I had something but I cannot remember what Beth ate or whether she ate; it is more complicated for Beth as she is a coeliac and cannot therefore eat gluten.

We got changed and were ready to go for the evening event.  We mixed with relatives, but found the music and strobes rather overpowering and congregated with others in the neighbouring room.  We could have drinks and sweets all evening but the bacon butty came later on. I do not tend to eat sweets much so just got some to take home for my beloved.  Cathy stayed up longer socializing whereas Beth and I went to bed not too late!  We were both falling asleep.  It was lovely to talk with Kathleen, my stepmother in the lobby before going to our room; amazing that she was able to be there at the wedding.  It was lovely to see so many members of the family, in particular members of Dave’s family, who I had not remembered.  We oldies stayed away from the music in the adjoining room. The hotel was very comfortable and we enjoyed a good breakfast.  Beth too had a good choice of food for breakfast.  The girls and I had a leisurely drive back home on Saturday morning.  It was good to be back home with my beloved again.
