me and mine {May family portrait}

Before the sadness of the last few weeks unfolded we celebrated the joyful occasion of G’s sister’s wedding.  E was a dapper page boy, G chief usher and I was chief toddler chaser.  E was a star and had mastered walking just in time to toddle down the aisle after Aunty Catherine.  It was a wet day and the lure of the puddles afterwards was too great to resist: step, step, giggle, wobble, splat, ooops soaked.  wedding 11-5-13

I didn’t get a chance to take any photos of the 3 of us all scrubbed up – fortunately someone else took this one, just before E’s puddle encounter.  And after dinner I finally had free hands to take some snaps of E with Daddy and Great Grandpa George (E rocking the waistcoat with his cords and t-shirt – such a dude). I would have liked to include a pic of the gorgeous bride and groom but they haven’t got any photos through yet either!11-5-13 - Catherine's wedding_G and E 4B11-5-13 - Catherine's wedding_grandpa George, G and E 4B

    That looks like a pretty cool waistcoat. Can imagine it was a lovely sight to see him toddling down the aisle : )

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
