Good start........................not so good end!!

Last Saturday -5th November- we went to my cousins wedding. It took weeks of buying clothes and returning clothes before we finally all had outfits, that fitted and co-ordinated, to wear.  This is a picture of me before we left our house

I don't normally choose dresses (except if it is really hot in the summer) and have probably not worn tights since my wedding 15 years ago!! I'm not joking!  But as soon as I saw this dress with its roses and net underskirts, I just loved it - and when I tried it on I actually felt good in it!

We had a lovely day and evening (although it seemed to go so quickly) and it was lovely catching up with family and having a good ole dance (I dont get out much!)

The happy couple

My two!

My mum and me

(sorry no piccies of hubby - he seemed to take all the photos!!)

The whole ceremony and reception was in Cooling Castle Barn, which was a beautful venue in the countryside of Rochester.  In the evening they had a firework display - although it had started to rain by then.

Now the not so good end...............on the way home in the car, I must have been bitten by some rotten insect.  By the time I got home, my leg was itchy and slightly swollen and by the next morning, angry and red looking!  I had put antibiotic cream on it, as I am always suffering from skin infections, but as the day went on it was getting worse and worse.  So we had to cancel our firework trip to Leeds Castle!!  Luckily we have a minor injuries unit, who gave me anti-biotic capsules straight away.  Im so glad I went, because on Sunday and Monday I could hardly walk (after taking the tablets) so without them I would have been even worse.  I am now almost over it, just left with a bruised leg!!
Definitely a day to remember!!
Have a good weekend
