15 minutes of fame

We are in the local paper tonight:

Fame at last


It would be nice if a few people we know went over to comment on the story!

oooh, I've been so busy -- I did a bitof voluntary work at B's school this week. Only 4 hours in the classroom, but I had to spend a good while preparing the text and resources, so it kept me off the streets.

We've also been having a new landscape project done in the back-garden, which is nearly finished: photos SOON

My mate mand got married this weekend. It was a really lovely do. The service was in the Town Hall in Manchester, a very fine building with lovely high ceilings and long stained glass windows. Sadly I cant find any sites with good pics of the interior, but you can follow the link for a few images.

Mand and Pete had written their own vows as well, which was good. Then we all had a short stroll across town to the Dukes 92 ~ a bar-restaurant by the canal, where we had a lovely "sunday lunch". The room they had is virtually all glass on two sides, with great views out over the canla basin, creating a marvellous sense of space inside.

Mand looked marvellous and I am so happy for her. She is so delighted with her new life... I did a "best-woman" speech that went down well, no doubt thanks to my impeccable planning! haha
Sadly I don't think I got any decent photos of us together, but I will download later and have a look!
