contemplating life on mars..






these photos are from a few wks ago when we had that first weekend of sun which sent everybody mental..a few weeks before, one of my best friends flew off to new york and got married, in secret, not telling anyone until it was done - they have been planning the NY wedding for a while, but it had been scheduled for next summer, so it was a suprise to recieve the text, but a nice suprise as it's removed all the stress from the day for them, and they managed to have the wedding they ultimately wanted :)

so our other two friends had arranged a suprise hen party trip for her (prior to them running off to NY!), which ended up being once she was already married (still with me, here?!) basically they came to visit, and we had a champagne picnic by the river near my house in the afternoon, and then headed out for a meal / cocktails in the evening..

i forgot to take a pic of my actual outfit, but it's fairly visible in the sewing pic..lis forgot to bring her pjs so i offered to make her a pair when we got back, so this is a pic of me cutting out and sewing at about 1am. much to the delight of the other two - not! :Z they turned out ok though for being such a rush, and she's modelling them in the last pic!

it was such a lovely day, and i think we all really needed it :) it certainly took my mind of recent misery and i haven't laughed so much in a while!


  1. Awh that was so nice of you, making her PJs!! :D

  2. Its genius that you offered to make your friend a pair of pj's! How generous.
    Confusing story but sounds like you had a fun time and thats the main thing :)

  3. Awww these are great pictures, i love the first one.
    My friends did something similar, they got married just telling immeadiate family and went for a lovely meal afterwards, no stress and i think its really romantic x

  8. I love the idea of sneaking off to get married. Mr. A and I are almost to that point. Wedding planning can get ridiculous!
