Hello everyone, rather a long break, for all sorts of reasons, perhaps most of all, just because! Wow one whole year just seems to have zipped past and disappeared.
I´m sure I shall flip back to some events, but I thought you may like to share in our news,
We have been very busy these last three months, planning and crafting, organising
Chris and I have just got married
First we went to Gibraltar in February, getting married in Spain was proving very difficult, every document had to be translated and stamped, the time was taking an age and it was getting stressful, so we opted for Gibraltar for the legalities. It was very easy, and even though there were no frills, we still enjoyed the ceremony, with Rebecca walking me in to the room and giving us the rings.
So with Chris´s brother, best friend, Rebecca and Antoni we had a picnic on the balcony then a photo shoot down on the beach.
We were going to visit the monkeys etc on the rock but the cable car was being refurbished, best thing as it turns out as we organised a private tour with an excellent guide and had a lovely time.
We also visited St Michael´s caves, which were outstandingly beautiful. I really do not do tunnels or caves etc but was determined to go in, it was wonderful, they hold concerts there and the lighting systems made it magical. When I touched the rocks I was surprised to feel it was very warm, there was a polished stalactite and the energy was amazing.
We only took video so will have to take off some stills.
We also visited the tunnels, hacked out by the soldiers, the history was very interesting but I did not enjoy these as much, in contrast the stone was so cold to touch and quite hostile.
So moving into March
On Monday we had a blessing in our little chapel in the Ermita, with family and friends, it was so beautiful, very emotional and we consider this to be our ´wedding´,

Well perhaps I should call a halt here before you all get bored
So after 41 years 1 month and 5 days since Chris first proposed, through parental intervention, life and circumstances we finally tied the knot
