We had borrowed a lot of kit from the scouts to reduce the cost of hiring lots of chairs and tables at the party. It will probably cost us the same overall but at least some of the money will go to the scouts and support their activities.Continue reading Pack Up And Push Off
The family part of our wedding celebrations arrived, and for a long time Aimi was insistent that this was not a wedding. We didn’t want to do all the speeches and cake cutting traditional stuff, it was just an excuse to get together with family and friends and have a good time in the sun getting pissed.Continue reading The “Not A Wedding” Party
I had already packed up the van with all the things I thought we would need for the party. So this morning was an easy job to get up and then drive down to Milton Keynes. But when I got to my van, the remote key wasn’t working and the radio wouldn’t turn on… I think the van had been sat still for 2 weeks too long and the battery was a bit flat? But it started just fine so off we went.Continue reading Set Up Seats
We have been up north for 4 days now and it’s been glorious every day. Barely a drizzle to dampen our mood. But obviously we have been checking the forecast for today for a long time and as it’s gotten closer it’s been more consistently saying it will be constant rain all day… and then, of course, the week following today is going to be glorious sun again.

This is last minute prep for a BBQ garden party with the stokie friends.Continue reading Thailand is closer than you think
So we are engaged and this now opens up the whole unknown road of actually getting married….

Turns out there’s an app for that!Continue reading Proposing A Fight
First day in Mexico and jetlag worked in my favour because naturally we woke up early, and Aimi suggested we go to watch the sunrise over the beach. This was awesome because today was the day and this would make the perfect moment.Continue reading Proposal
So the world has gone Bananas about COVID-19, a Flu-like virus that is spreading all over the globe and wreaking havoc across nations. It seems that the most noticeable damage is actually being done by the hysteria rather than people dropping dead walking the dog…Continue reading Bathroom Renovations Pt.2
The bathroom that came with the house is being ripped out today. It’s going great, but the house looks like Henry the hoover has vomited up his lunch.
Oh and by the way, we bought a house!
Last night a plan had been formulated.
