The boy done good!
The church was full as was the church hall next door, a fitting testimony to the fact he is a great guy. I sat just in front of George, Jo, Smiley, Jane, and Liz S - Martin was up front in robes to be official and lay on hands at the requisite point. "Aunty" Liz swanned in and took her reserved seat having cut her holiday short and driven all the way up from Dartmo* r that morning (what friends will do for each other) ingnoring all us relegated to the rear pews and public seating... she did acknowledge our presence later and we all refrained from the temptation to throw in a random "Meercat moment" during the proceedings.
I was then blessed to enjoy the hospitality of K&S & family that night along with Smiley & Jane. Hannah even gave up her bed for me (such a nice child). By staying over I also got to go to church to see Stu do his first "official" service. Only another 6 days until his next days work...
A quick cuppa later, I was back on my bike and heading down the motorway to Lond*n.
A great weekend with great people.
