The big day has arrived

I am sure that I will be forgiven for the lack of posts recently (fingers crossed) but I have been rather busy getting everything ready, for today.
Tuesday we caught the train to London to collect Christiana, Panayiotis, Sophia and Katerina but they didnt know that we were going to meet them. I do love London, especially the tube

and to make it even more special, we met up with my nephew for dinner in a lovely little cafe. Despite the rain we had a wonderful time.

Wednesday morning we set off to Heathrow and I didnt know it would take us over an hour to get there opps. The girls were so surprised to see us so after breakfast at the airport we came home by train.
Sophia arrived minus her suitecase which had her wedding outfit, all the underwear and shoes in it, this was our first major hiccup. We made lots of calls and discovered that it never got on the plane with them but just after 10.00 on Thursday, it turned up.

Since then it has been all rush, a few problems but nothing major. Yesterday we spent a few hours at the wedding venue and I have a few photos to show you what we did
We decorated the tables for the wedding breakfast

And the cake was all put together

The red carpet arrived in time and this is where I shall be walking at 4.00p.m. today
I have left everyone asleep in bed and grabbing half an hour to myself before the mayhem starts. We are meeting up with Paul's son, his wife and the grandchildren in an hour and having a family breakfast together as I imagine that this is the only time today that we shall be able to sit and chat to our children. The nerves and the excitement have all kicked in and I have been told to savour every moment as it goes in a flash.

Thanks for having a read and I will be back again in a few days
