Something borrowed


The need for diversions to alleviate wedding withdrawal symptoms is not quite as strong as it was. But anything about brides, grooms. mother-in-laws or receptions - especially bad behaviour to do with any of the afore-mentioned – is still compelling.

Throw Torchwood into the mix – and how could I resist?

It was all complete nonsense, of course, with shapeshifters and alien babies, not to mention Jack bursting in to stop the wedding as Gwen was about to make her vows. But Nerys Hughes was a joy to watch, especially as I noticed (rather cattily) that since the heyday of the Liver Birds she has accumulated even more wrinkles and poundage than me.

Yikes - my darling daughter has just announced her engagement, she and the beloved vaguely propose to marry at the end of the year or the beginning of next. (It has to be after she finishes her PhD in October, and when the beloved's parents/siblings etc can get here from Oz) We had lunch together yesterday and I nervously asked her what their plans were. In a nutshell it was: no church, hogroast(free range naturally!!!!), in a field, good music, hats optional.
Please be my guru, I am feeling very worried. I will pay (a small fee or several bottles of wine for your expertise).

Mmm - in a field ... in autumn/winter ... in UK???? Or is that just the hogroast?
Glad to hear hats are optional.
Congrats all round.
Feel free to pick my brains (such as they are) any time.

Both my married children had hogroasts at their wedding parties, and a ceilidh band. Worked very well and entertained all ages.
