Reader, I Married Him…

You may well have already seen this on social media, I wanted to share it on her too… The Beard, aka Chris, and I got married on Saturday.

After a really crazy week or so (one of my colleagues was killed outside our office, my stepdad was rushed into hospital with a heart attack, the Beast from the East and Storm Emma stopped a third of our guests getting there… oh and part the ceiling of the venue we were meant to get married fell in meaning a new venue was needed the day before the wedding) it was so lovely to share such a wonderful day with so many wonderful people.

So I wanted to share it with all of you who have lived it since the beginning. Plus a wedding is a really nice way (along with the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2018 all starting this week) to get the blog back up and running.

How are you all? What have you been upto? I’ve missed you.

    Congratulations, Simon (and to Chris, too!). You had a busy week; lots to remember)

    Congratulations. I always think that a disaster or two is a good omen for a wedding. Our photographer didn’t turn up to the church and five days before the wedding we ‘lost’ what was going to be our marital home, but we’ll be married 42 years in August.

  31. Congratulations! Wishing you much happiness and brilliantly integrated book shelves.

  32. Congratulations to you both! Here’s to decades of happiness!!!

  33. Kate (Sydney)
