Busy Time


Its been a busy time for me this last 2 weeks ..
My daughter got married on June 19th and it was a wonderful day and i was a very proud dad

The little man is my grandson Rhys 3 who was the ring bearer

Then it was my birthday and my lovely wife treated me to a weekend of lazing in hotel pool and hot tub and a go karting session ..Of which i have to say she won…But i did have a dodgy kart which had to be changed in the second session ..

Then we spend the afternoon at Felbrigg House and a great time walking round in the sunshine

In the evening we had a meal at a place called a taste of Oz .
just outside Norwich..I apologize to anyone over 40 i have just eaten Skippy !! He was very tasty..

And then this Sunday we joined in the open garden’s for the the fund raising for the local church who’s windows are falling out and need repairing..
Wonderful weather with a nice occasional gust of wind and some flowers making a timely showing…

And my Cardiocrinnon made a timely entrance by opening on Friday
just in time

We had about 40 couples vist the garden and lots of very positive comments and interest..which makes all the hard work worth while as you never know what people think …
Also talking to some people who had never heard of GOY some said they might even give it ago !! So we may find some new friends too

So far this year i have had 3 weddings and funeral and with one more to go in August that makes me a film star ..LOL
Four weddings and a funeral..

Move over Hugh ….

Congratulations! Your daughter made a very beautiful bride...and your grandson was a very cute ring-bearer.

I assume Skippy is Kangaroo meat? I'll have to try it one day...and I'm not annoyed and well past 40. LOL! : > )

The pics of your garden look terrific! I bet you're just soaking up all the hot sun these days too. : > )

Yep it was Kangaroo and was very good and a friend at work was very upset i'd eaten her childhood hero..LOL
I have been thoroughly enjoy the sun lately it has been a welcome change but its back to normal now 18-20 and showers ,but we do the rain ..

Here in California people can be VERY touchy about eating certain types of animal meat also. Although, it's an interesting change to try something new to eat every so often.

Our weather is back to normal...and the ending of this week we may get up close to 100 degrees/ 38 degrees C. for the first time this year...which usually happens in late April or May. I think we're going to be hoping for the cooler weather to come back soon.
