Catching Up...Part 1

I havn't done any blogging for ages...but I have to say... I've quite enjoyed not!!!
I've been driving all over the place, having had 2 weddings and unfortunately a funeral to go to over the last few weeks.
The first wedding was really lovely, and at an amazing place called Hampton Court, in Herefordshire.
I don't really do party photos, as I enjoy taking part rather than documenting it...but I thought some of the little places around and about were really atmospheric.
There seemed to be an odd combination of Medievil and Victorian...

We danced under the alternative 'glitterball'...a giant mace!
...and I think I was the only guest to root out the Guiness...(I don't behave well on wine)...and I was the envy of many!
Then, of course, guess what I did on the way home?...
A family group...
A very satisfying public partnership (she's proud of her age!)
Mr Richards has gone...
...leaving Mr Richards' lonely son!

Round the Bend...at dusk.

And then what was waiting when I got back home...
I love this photo...


  1. Hello Philippa

    It's nice to see you back. You sound as you have been busy. The venue for the wedding looks beautiful! A wonderful setting. Sorry to read that you also had a funeral to go to. Liking the telephone boxes, funny I think of you when I spot some in village. I think to myself that you'd be able to tell me straight way what type of phone box it was.
    Take care
