And what about the bride. She was radiant, fabulous dress in pale gold with black lace and those long velvet gloves finished off her gorgeous outfit perfectly. The cake incidentally was made by another ex colleague and continuing friend Joanne, it was chocolate and delicious.We enjoyed good food, drink, some jazz and dancing, a chance for me to catch up with the working girls, Amanda completed the foursome, the old team was back together briefly. Our return journey was interesting, I had volunteered to drive and been on the orange juice so Mr FF could have a drink. The Edinburgh streets were icy and as I drove along the side of the Pentlands the road became covered in snow but fortunately there was little traffic at that time of night so a slide wouldn't have been quite so worrying. We struggled up the incline on the back lane to our house and eventually arrived home. It was well worth the effort, an absolute joy to see Amy and Tim married and both looking so happy. I'm not sure we would have made it today, the snow has been coming down continually, it's getting seriously deep, compare this picture with the previous post. Throughout the UK there is chaos, on the roads, at the airports and the channel tunnel, I'm grateful to be safe at home and sorry for all those who are wondering if they will complete their journeys.

Yes we did make it to the wedding, quite a bit of snow but our journey into Edinburgh was fine and we were armed with extra warm clothes, wellies etc just in case we hit trouble. The snow started to fall heavily as we were walking up The Royal Mile to the service and by the time the bride arrived, slightly delayed by the weather, the landscape was beautifully coated in white. Lots of stilettos tottering on the ice as we walked to the reception up by the castle, not me of course, I had my boots on and party shoes in my bag.
