Welcome to my blog!

You can expect to see ramblings including but not limited to the following: knitting, sewing, crochet, housework, DIY, interior decorating, gardening, family, music, comedy, history and local events. There may also be rantings, which are likely to be mainly about rudeness and bad grammar, but you will be warned in advance when a rant is about to happen so you can look away.

I'd be delighted if anyone wanted to comment on any of my ramblings or rantings.

Wedding Anniversary

It was our 4th wedding anniversary last Thursday.  It's amazing to think that so much time has gone by.  Our wedding day was wonderful, I spent many happy hours planning it, looking for bargains and making bits and pieces.  I did all the stationery myself, my sister and I made our tiaras and a friend helped me make sugar roses for the cake.

We had a civil ceremony in a lovely hotel in Clevedon, followed by ceilidh dancing in the evening.

So, because our anniversary was on a Thursday and we were working on Friday we just had a quiet meal at home on the actual day, followed by a meal at an Italian restaurant on Saturday night.

I set the table with the place name tables from our wedding and made braised lamb shanks with crushed herb potatoes (potatoes and thyme grown from scratch of course!), followed by home-made strawberry ice-cream with rosewater biscuits:

 As the evening went on we did get a bit silly with the letter biscuits:

 Should have predicted that really!  It was a lovely evening with lots of happy memories of our special day and of our marriage so far.  We're so lucky to be happily married and it's always good to take time to remember that.


  1. Happy Anniversary!
