A very pretty flower girl…
I haven’t had a chance to do my own photos yet as we have been mainly confined to barracks with snot but a friend very kindly sent these so i have put them up for you to see – hopefully i will have some of her. Apologies for the chopped one – it had the little pageboy on it and i can’t ask his mum if its okay to have him on the net so i shan’t.
These are from left to right of the top Ruth, Pud, Anne the bride, Jenny and Josie – amazingly i have known Jenny since she was only a couple of years older than Pud. They came back from Malawi (the catchphrase Anne is remembered for is “When i was in Malawi….”and moved fairly soon to a house on our school campus. Anne and i used to escape there for lunch most days and it was a major haven in our 6th form. Josie, who is on the right, is Ruths SIL and she brought Pud some Poi – Home of Poi and Poi Spinning which is in danger of becoming a craze – we are going to have to get extra sets – Josie came up to our hotel room when Pud was getting tired and gave her a mini workshop – we love you Josie – come and visit!
It occurred to me during the service that services by Anne’s Dad, who was our school chaplain and also married us and christened all our children, are more familiar to me than those by any other – if its not him, its not church!!!! lol! It was so lovely to be part of a wedding again – reminds you of all those important words….
I also have a gorgeous Quicktime clip of Pud dancing alone at the reception to a jazz band but its 12mb and i don’t know how to put it on a site :~( Shame really, cos its lovely :~)
What else? Well we visited my cousin and little boy (sadly they are ALSO moving away – we are really going to miss them), have done some fabulous sticker/puzzle books from Sainsburys based on 6 bible stories (2 for £1.99 – excellent value!) read a lot, played at our local play centre, read the flower fairy poems, done lots of Reader Rabbit Maths, Webland and UKBarbie (i give up – girls are so GIRLY!!!!) and a fair proportion of Hama beading, treat giving out, collaging and goodness knows what else.
I wrote up our educational report for the LEA yesterday and really, its amazing how much we do!
