At 2:15 on 18th October 2014 (15 minutes later than planned) Louise and I got married! The official photographers photo’s have arrived and we are really pleased with them. Look out for a longer post about the day soon! Until then here’s a slideshow of some of the best photos that the photographer put together for us. What a lot of SMILES!
Dad and little me, 1973/4.

Will be missed but never forgotten. x
Last weekend we took a drive to Chipping Sodbury for a family BBQ at Louise’s parents, perfect weather and a lot of fun for the kids in the pool.
I used the ZOE photo feature on my HTC One phone to capture the pictures and this is the video it generated at the end of the day. The geek in me approves!
1 week ago Louise and I were boarding our flight home from Cape Verde, 1 week! It already seems a lot longer than that!
Louise and I had a great 7 days soaking up some winter sun, waking up to a view of a snowy Gatwick Airport from our (rather comfy!) Premier Inn window to relaxing on a beach watching the sun go down less than 12 hours later was a great feeling!
We stayed on the Island of Sal at the Melia Tortuga Beach resort (Upgraded to a 3 bed Villa for some unknown reason???) for one of the laziest weeks holiday I’ve ever experienced. Thankfully we did plan it to be lazy, days spent reading, sleeping, eating and drinking were just what we wanted after a busy Christmas period. We were a little adventurous for a few hours with a small 4×4 tour to see the Island, but to be honest Sal isn’t a destination that has much to reveal, it’s long sandy coastline and windy nature attracted both beach and watersports lovers.
We’re already thinking ahead to another winter sun break next year, it was perfect to escape the UK winter!
This week I found that I was unable to squeeze in any more coins into the Terramundi Pot my Sister kindly gifted me a some ago, so with some sadness it was time to crack it open…
