I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

The Wedding - The outfit

So, the wedding weekend in Edinburgh was sooo fab! The pics show "the outfit" from all angles - oh yes, and there was a beautiful bride and handsome groom too but this is my blog ............. hee hee

Sitting on the plane setting off from Exeter, I had a wee shock when a girlie little voice came over the system saying "Hi, my name's Amy and I'm your pilot for this flight" - she only sounded about sixteen but she did a great job.

My darling BF met me with a bunch of her friends and we sat up until 3.30am drinking and bonding. I sprung awake at 6.30 am and was too excited about my best woman duties to go back to sleep.

BF and I had to go to the hairdressers, then on to Harvey Nicks for a subtle addition of eyelashes and a make up session for BF. I sneaked off to the Benefit counter and quickly got a make over before BF had time to miss me.

Keeping her grounded was impossible - she was soooo nervous and bratty.

The wedding was everything it should have been, moving, funny, tearful.

The reception the same. It was a great atmosphere - everyone seemed to get on well. I met some lovely people. One couple are going to send me an invite to one of their parties - which are, apparently, truly historic occasions.

Lots of dancing until 1am, then close friends of the couple went back to theirs for a "rave" which I slid off from at 4.30am. Slept in the bride and grooms house as did many others - so much for their "first night".

Up again at 7.30am - two lovely friends of BF took me to the airport. Arrived home on Sunday having had a total of six hours sleep over the whole weekend. Yes! - a truly great one :o}


PS I forgot to mention that her Dad managed to "give her away" and held out OK during the reception too - especially once he'd got a few drinks down him :o}

Beautiful outfit - very chic and very swish...I wonder when you were in Edinburgh - we might have passed each other in the street! But I'd have been to ..erm...'happy' (read hammered) to notice, I guess. :-)
