So.. on the 19th September it was the long awaited wedding day for my big sister Krissy and her new hubby Dave! My darling sis planned the whole event single handedly as she wanted everything to be just how she had always dreamed. And to be honest the day was perfect and couldn’t have gone any better!

My sister, Lara and I spent the…

On this visit we had packed our picnic set and popped into Sainsburys to pick up some al fresco lunch essentials. Luckily the weather was beautiful and we found a nice grassy patch in the cathedral…

So it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and I didn’t do much on my actual birthday, but Liam took me to London for a couple of nights a the weekend and we stayed in a gorgeous hotel, but I’ll do a separate post for that! On my birthday after work my Mum did a mini tea time for me and the family with plenty of cake and scones. I had a custom cake made for me by a local cake baker, which she decorated with a bright blue background and painted roses onto the cake.. so cute!…
