The main event

We arrived safely in the Wirral on Thursday in time for our meeting at the bank. After lunch in West Kirby we were too late for our appointments at the dentist. Never mind, we needed to register with a dentist in Spain and ultimately that will be more convenient.

The "girls" from Pam's school came to meet her at the Glegg Arms on Thursday night to catch up on all the gossip. Sadly Pete and Dave didn't make it which meant that I got to sit with the girls (not such a bad deal really!). Still I would have liked to have seen the dynamic duo to catch up on all the news about the Academy.

The wedding on Friday ran like clockwork. The weather was just perfect, just what we had hoped for. The bride and her bridesmaids looked stunning as of course did the groom and his ushers. In the evening we joined the wedding party at Brook Meadow for a fabulous night of entertainment. The best part though was meeting up with so many friends.

Saturday we went to the bride's parents' house for a BBQ. I have to say that when the Whittles have a wedding they really do it in style. The BBQ provided us with another fantastic day in the company of friends. Even Paul Ince turned up to offer his congratulations to the happy couple.

Yesterday we called in to Chester for a bit of last minute shopping and a meal which our girls treated us to. Then on the way back to Manchester we called in at Pam's parents who we are glad to say looked very well.

With a bit of a squeeze we have got everything into the cases. I have to confess that most of the shopping is mine and not Pam's. My excuse though is that she will be back in October and I won't. I'll leave checking the bank account until we get back - I don't want to spoil our last day!

We have had a fantastic ten days and would like to thank all those people who have made us so welcome. We have thoroughly enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing you again real soon.
