Big Catch Up

The last month has been a complete whirl - the Teddies Worldwide Online Show, followed 5 days later with my marriage to Mike, and sailing off the following day for two weeks.

I took Matilda and Lucky into the garden before packing them up for their long trip down under.

Mike and I had a lovely wedding day.  We were a small party,  with just close family.  We were blessed with good weather - sunny but not too hot.

I decided to make and decorate the cake myself. I made all the flowers, leaves and decorations from sugar paste.  The top tier is a chocolate cake, the bottom is fruit cake.

I made mug rugs as wedding favours as small gifts for our guests. 

There are better photos of these on my other blog:

We had a wonderful two week holiday.  The ship was wonderful...with far, too much delicious food.  I even took water colour painting classes onboard.  We travelled to Iceland, the Faroe Islands and the Norwegian fjords.  We even saw a whale while leaving an Icelandic fjord.   I have attached a few of the 700 photos we took, below.

Oh well, all the excitement is over and it's back to reality.  I need to get on with creating bears for Hugglets!
