MOT ...

... and service booked for car today. More pennies (I wish!) to spend but ended up not being quite so many as anticipated 'cos MOT didn't happen! Seems the garage's machines had 'gone down' and they couldn't do it so it was left for the service only. Another £150+ out of my purse with more to come next week for the delayed MOT and 2 new tyres. MOT has to be done 'cos car tax is also due and I can't get it without it as it runs out the day before the tax is due - doh!! Perhaps it'll pay me to lose a month on the MOT so I have it in plenty of time for the tax renewal next year.
The garage I use is just along the road from my friend Cally so we had a day of crafty play. We decided to get some stamps out and practice as neither of us are stampers. We never actually made any cards - the 2 in the piccie were made up after I got the images home. We really enjoyed it as we were doing something different for us. I think Cally would agree that we both still have a long way to go with stamping....
Today is also a bit of a milestone for youngest son and daughter-in-law as it's their 10th wedding anniversary. They were childhood sweethearts, having met in primary school and started 'going out' when they were 14. They're now 33. Unfortunately they're not up to celebrating it too much as DiL is 38 weeks pregnant with their 3rd child and she's felt ill throughout the whole pregnancy. She has really suffered with this one and can't wait to give birth now.
 
They were married in the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. The interior photo was taken in the Banqueting Room.

Thanks for dropping by .....

Pam your son's wedding photo from the Pavillion is beautiful and your Dil's dress is stunning!
I used to love going to the Pavillion when my brother lived in Brighton
