When I wake up, well I know I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be the man who wakes up next to you


When I go out, yeah, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes along with you
If I get drunk, well, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver, hey, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s havering to you

But I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door…

So the deed is done, the families have gathered and joined for better or for worse – better, we know.

So No2 (sorry shabby) and Flashdance are now one, we had a great time, and No2 looked fab – but I think the cake may have stolen the show, the lego theme extended throughout with little lego figures for each guest at the dining tables. Flashdance’s eponymous party piece was a sight to see!

No1 carried out her bridesmaidly duties in typical form, meaning she took her responsibilities VERY seriously indeed…..some may say TOO seriously and in far TOO MUCH detail and very Monica from friends, quite scary ….

Other high points were the entire family working as one to deny Pyro, our nephew, any crab cakes when the canapés were served. We don’t always work well as a team, but this time..

Which reminds me to do post on crab cakes, as they are one of my very favourite things.

Rocket did well orchestrating the ‘group’ dance to The Proclaimers, 500 miles…I think that may become a bit of a standard fixture in future. I wanted to write about the dance  and then I read the lyrics and thought how appropriate they were for a wedding.

Slippers stepping out from the bushes when we were returning to our rooms at the end of the night, just when we thought everyone had departed, rounded off a day of hilarity.

Our nephew Deeps gets married next, after which it will be a Christmas wedding for our nephew Scouse and then a spring wedding next year for our nephew Hack, 4 weddings in the family in the space of one year…let’s hope there are no funerals!

The cake was made by a friend of my sister in law El Porcio, not only was it fabulous to look at, it tasted delicious too. I’m in awe of those who have the skill and patience for this type of creation. Here are the details…..



Thanks to The Proclaimers for their great song, and the loan of their lyrics….
