We have been a bit distracted these last few weeks, with no time for boating and no time for jam sales.
Truth be told our daughter's wedding has been the focus of our lives, but it is fair to say that the date was influenced by the gap between the end of the boating festival season and the start of the Christmas Fairs.
I don't post a lot about my personal life but here are a few photos of the event which took place at Aldridge Parish Church on Sat 19th Oct followed by a reception in Tamworth.
The arrival of the bride
Jeff all scrubbed up!
The Ahabs on parade
Belle and her sister!
All this puts me in mind of a young boy who lived near a pretty church and watched the weekly procession of weddings with increasing bafflement. In the end he approached the vicar and demanded an explanation: What to you do to the men? All these pretty young girls go into the church with old men and an hour later they come out with young ones.....
So Tilly went in with her old man and emerged with her young one so I had better leave you with a picture of the happy couple:
As soon as the wedding was over we jumped on the boat and were off up the Shroppie, but that's another story.
