It took 27 hours from here and back again,, stayed overnight at our son David and his partner Mandys residence and enjoyed a superb breakfast.
The remainder of our time included nine hours socialising Wedding - Church - Reception.
Driving took up 4.5 hours approx. Two hour breakfast. One hour chatting an old friend the Grandfather of the bride.
The rest of the was spent either sleeping or on the toilet.
Trying to explain the complex issue of who was related to who would not be less complicated than a centrally isolated Tasmanian rural community register.
Inside of the chuch,. In front of me from left to right, stood Tony my 2nd eldest son father of the bride, then Gegory the husband of Tonys 2nd wife Suzanne. Suzanne the mother of the bride was stood next to Tonys third wife Rebecca. the senior matron of honour was Kylie, who is Tony's eldest daughter from his first marriage with Karen. Kylie's partner is paul (in lower case) the father of three of her four children.
Would you like me to continue? It can become quite complicated by reaching the bottom line.
Like most weddings and family reunions lots of dunny stirring under the psuedo smiles, however all went well on the surface, no punchups or difficult scenes.
I am not sure who footed the bill for 125 guests at $150.. bucks a head at the Sebal in Windsor NSW, possibly Tony the father of the bride. myself being the father of five sons I made certain it was not my priviledge.
It is a lovely spring day 23deg, spent most of morning in scungy gear pottering in garden away from the complicities of life, and now it is lunchtime and time to leave, maybe photo's soon.
May the forthcoming week bring you much joy and happiness. Vest. dailygaggle.com
