We tried to go out for a nice meal but somehow managed to end up loseing in a pub quiz till stupid o'clock.
After a dimly remembered day at work it was back out to Lime Bar for the other half of works Xmas do, followed by a silly amount of Indian buffet pre-FONT.
Slept through most of that and am now back in the pub again for the regular dev meating.
Need sleep. Now.
You can find them in the wedding pictures part of the Gallery.
For those who requested it my speech ran as follows:
Thankyou to Rose ( Poem : Our Mother)
Brief words made up on the night to Dad
A message to Tom (Poem adapted from Pam Ayres' Yes, I
Hazel: We are here today to celebrate the marriage of Tom & Rachael. They ask our blessing, encouragement and life long support for their decision to become husband & wife.
Hazel: It is more than just flesh-to-flesh; it is mind-to-mind, feeling-to-feeling, soul-to-soul in this world & the next. Without family and friends beside them in joy as well as sorrow, this new couple would miss the greatest joys of life outside their own home. They are delighted that you have chosen to witness this ceremony.
Now we make our own magic. Now we create our own legends. Now we build the future.
It is the end of the Earth year 2002, and it is the dawn of a new age for us. It is the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.
The next twenty years will see great changes, great joy, and great sorrow. The new alliance may waver and crack, but in the end it will hold.
Because what is built endures, and what is loved endures, and we - we endure.
Thanks Straczynski !
