Just home from a weekend in Hexham, Northumberland, and I will tell you about the most important thing. We want everyone to know how much we all enjoyed Anna and Tom's wedding celebrations and how much we wish them well for the future.
I suppose my humans aren't totally conventional. Andrew must be a little unusual. He lets his toy cat have a blog, after all! But even he wasn't intending to take me to the wedding of his nephew Tom to Anna. It was last Thursday evening, over dinner with Anna and her parents, that she invited me specially to the ceremony. You see what a wonderful, kind and very special person she is. She volunteered a photograph: and here it is. Doesn't she look good in that lovely wedding dress!
The whole day was lovely. It was held in a sort of giant glass pavilion, called "the Winter Gardens", that was connected with the school Tom went to. The ceremony was held there and Tom and Anna chose their own special readings and had their own special wording for their vows. After that, we went into another hall while the Winter Gardens were prepared for a meal and then dancing. It was in this hall that I had my picture. I think Anna looks very pretty. I also think my Mikki looks very good - and Andrew says I must say he thought so too.
Once the food and drink came out, I got back in a little carriage the humans had brought for me. But I will show you another picture we took earlier. This is me standing next to the wedding cake. The peacock feathers are appropriate as Anna's surname before marrying Tom was 'Peacock'. In this picture, you can get a bit of an idea of the glass walls of the building and the lovely grounds outside.
I didn't eat any. I'm a toy. Andrew says it was delicious.
More news of the weekend in a later post.
