Vintage Romance

Aaaahhhh..... That's me and my boy back in August 1998 when we were young and gorgeous!! LOL! Our theme over at Tag, you're It! this week is Vintage Romance so I scanned one of our wedding photo's and sepia'd it up a bit! Unbelievably, although it was only 12 years ago (he says it feels MUCH longer!!!) our photo's were shot on 35mm and we had to do a deal with the photographer's to buy the negatives!! The bride wore lilac and cream - a dress I bought off the peg from Dotty P's the week before! We headed off on our annual holiday to a little cottage we used to rent just outside Oban, and stopped off en route to tie the knot at Gretna with my faithful pup Rosie as my bridesmaid proudly sporting her new tartan collar (though she hid it well here!!)

I had a moment of excitement and fame yesterday when the joke I sent to Rick Wakeman for his Planet Rock show was read out on air! As if that wasn't enough, 10 minutes later he revealed that I was also the winner of last week's Lyric Theatre! ROFL!!! My Saturday mornings are geared around Rick's show - he is so naughty and hilariously funny, and plays the best tracks and his interviews with rock legends are always brilliant! We went down to Devon a few weeks ago and I timed it perfectly so that we could just be hitting the motorway as Rick's show was starting, and with any luck, arrive shortly after it finished. So when the bloomin' engine died on the M5 with half an hour of the programme still to run I was furious! Not only did me and the boys and my dogs have to stand under a motorway bridge in the freezing cold and incredible noise for over an hour till the breakdown arrived, I missed the last half hour of Rick!!! Argh! Then to add insult to injury, Terry came home with a courtesey car that hadn't got DAB radio! Outrageous!
Thanks for stopping by here and if you find yourself with time to spare this week, get yourself over to TYI and make a beautiful romantic vintage tag of your own to show off! Go on, you know you want to!! :o) xxx
