That was quite a week that was...

That was quite a week that was, for several reasons....

...It was a very sporty week (as spectators) Wimbledon tennis; FIAF World Cup in Brazil; F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone; Test Match cricket and Le Tour de France, which started off in the UK.  We were spoilt for choice if we wanted to sit down and watch something sporty while taking a break from everything else that's been going on...

...It was a very physical the week - clearing vegetation, demolishing the remains of the old garden fence at the start of the week and putting up a new one, with the help of our friend, John on Thursday.  Looks good...Another step forward on the garden makeover!

...It was also a very sociable week - celebrating a second Christmas mid-week with our son Jack to make up for the celebration he missed last December, and meeting up on Friday with Paul and Berrie - friends of Steve's who go back to his school days - for a very leisurely lunch at The Punter pub on the Thames.

Last but least, it was a very special week for our friends Emily and Nick, who were married yesterday .... and what a wonderful occasion it was too.  Very personal and full of love from, and for, family and friends.  We felt privileged to have been invited and enjoyed every single minute!  It was also wonderful to meet up at the wedding with other friends old - and not so old - a great mix of generations!  Wine flowed, speeches delighted, music played, food was consumed, magic was performed and everyone danced! 

We taxied home at midnight with our friends Anne and Colin, who stayed overnight with us and helped us wake up this morning....

We said our farewells to Jack, Anne and Colin this morning and have been busy preparing for our next adventure which starts later today.  No time to upload photos now, I'm afraid. But there will be plenty when I post again.

Friends on Facebook will probably guess where we are from my daily picture posted on the 365 iPhone Project.  The rest of you will have to wait a while.  However, here is a small clue: we expect to be greeted by fireworks and dancing in the street tomorrow night, 14 July!  

A bient├┤t :-)
