I feel all at sea!!!

Yesterday Tom and I had a 'cream tea' for all of our friends to celebrate out Silver wedding anniversary. It was a little after the date but its the best we could do. Our original wedding was a blazing hot day with little breeze and no clouds in the sky. Yesterday in contrast we had torrential rain, with thunder and lightening!! Non the less we had a great day. The only minor irritation was the music, the CD player was on strike and the lack of music really wound me up.
I would like to publically thank my friends Debbie and Karen for their input.
Debbie kindly supplied all the helium balloons in shades of cream and purple. She even gave me a lesson in the intricacies of helium balloon inflation (I had no idea that there were different shaped nozzles depending on the type of balloons!!)
Karen supplied my anniversary cakes, and they were stunning!! Beautiful home made death by chocolate the smell of which made my mouth water. The cakes were topped off with gorgeous floral displays. (I have licked the outside of the containers as it was hard to scrape off all the chocolate and I couldn't possibly have put them on the table covered in chocolate could I?)
Because I am usually the one that takes all the photos I asked a friend to step into the breach and take photos on my behalf, this is why I feel all at sea, I have the grand total of 6 photos of the event!! Jen (Thank you Jen!!) has all the rest on her camera and I am going to have to wait until Friday before I get to look at them. (Unless she puts me out of my misery and sends me a couple to keep me quiet!!!!)
We received some beautiful gifts and vouchers, I will be doing my thank you cards very soon. At the end of the evening we had a clear around and Laura and Rod both got stuck in and helped us sort out the mess and the packing up into the car, while being rained on.
So to all my friends and family who attended and read my blog, thank you very much for helping make it a day to remember!!
This is the first week I have missed out on My Town Monday, I did think about it but ran out of time!
