Cheese Wedding cake
Bride and Godfathers
We got off relatively lightly with our travels on 'Doris Day' with a delay of only 4 hours. It was service as usual from Faversham into London but then there were no trains from St Pancras to Nottingham. Advised to travel to Grantham from Kings Cross we ground to a halt outside Stevanage for about 2 hours due to a warehouse roof on the tracks . Gr Waiting at Grantham station was the worst part - bitterly cold and windy but the windswept sunset skies were spectacular.
Before the wedding ceremony we spent a few hours at Nottingham Castle, very well laid out and interesting museum with this giant pumpkin by Kate Malone amongst other contemporary ceramics .
I had a good look around the textile section while Ian was chatting to the volunteer in the regimental museum . Each to there own - besides the Torvill and Dean costumes from 'Balero' at Saravejo and some medieval fragments, I loved this mummers shirt. Then Ian found a friend in the castle gardens:
' a bit less scary than the wife'
Tomorrow I'm off up to Rydal Hall in Cumbria - hope 'Ewan' doesn't disrupt travel plans too much....
