The Wedding Weekend

Saturday was a lovely day - sunny, but not too hot. The sun did cause a few squints and eyewrinkles in the photos though. This is the Lock family after the wedding. There are more photos on the family blog and on my blog. We borrowed a wheelchair because the wedding site was quite a distance from the carpark and I was pretty grateful for that.

Helen looked beautiful. She did not wear the traditional white and her brightly coloured dress was matched by James' purple shirt.

The wedding was in the morning in a lovely park by the river with the reception being lunch at a riverside restaurant. The food was excellent, and I had a good appetite. We were paying and I wasn't too overwhelmed by the final bill.

We got home about 5pm and I went straight to bed and slept the clock around. Yesterday Shirley (Kevin's sister, who came up from Esperance for the wedding) and Graham came round in the morning. I made pizzas for lunch and ate one largish slice. We then took Shirley to the airport. Later we went to my sister's to return the wheelchair. She had guests and I ate a bit of finger food. Dinner was icecream and fruit though.

I have been feeling well for quite a while, and enjoying it. I start irinotecan this afternoon and hope the side effects are manageable.


  1. It looks like it was a lovely informal wedding. Helen looks beautiful - altogether a very handsome family :) and it was excellent that you were well enough to really enjoy it all. I was thinking of you.
    Good luck with the new chemo.

  2. I'm so glad you were able to be at Helen's wedding and were well enough to enjoy the ceremony and meal. Here's hoping the new chemo is tolerable. Sending positive thoughts your way for Christmas. Hugs, Liz.

  3. Looks like it was a lovely wedding and a good day for you all, great that you were able to enjoy it. Best wishes for Christmas.
