Our wee November wedding

 Hello m' fellow bridezilla's,

I have news ... Monsieur & I got married! It was a small, quiet ceremony at an old Cornish mining site. We told only a handful of people, including our two lovely witnesses. I picked my outfit from my  wardrobe that morning - plum velvet dress and vintage embroidered Chinese jacket together with my sturdy leather work boots. The flowers I picked fresh from the garden- river lilies, snapdragon, lemon scented geranium, cerinth and trailing ivy. 

 I cried. Monsieur welled up a bit too. 

We were back by tea time to collect the children and treat ourselves to a nice takeout (Indian cuisine & a cloudy cider for me, fish & chips with juice for them).

Gardening duties have happily been on pause. 

We've been treated to whole array of different types of rain: 

drizzle, mizzle, spittle, danky-do-don't-go-to-town deluge, silver sleet sheets, splutter gutter downfalls, piss pop drops, neck floss splodge, flippity-freezing lashings etc.

This year's apple harvest from the little hurdle over tree

First attempt at toffee apples, hmm - must not double dip again!
 
We are only one month away now from the winter solstice. The trees have mostly shed their leaves and temperatures have dropped. Time to snuggle down with a good book, crocheted granny blanket and hot water bottle.



Just a quick post today folks. 
I am off to make a nice cup of coffee then to catch up on some of your blogs...


Lulu xXx
