Our weekend

Was spent driving down to Sussex via the M25 loaded up with mattresses and flat packed drawer sets and numerous other bits and pieces for son and his girlfriends new home...
Don't we all have one of these moments - when you are absolutely sure those instructions are wrong...

Those slats just won't fit that way .......
So after much reading and flipping and slotting - it eventually looked like a bed!

our other son popped round from his house where he stays whilst at Uni -mum did the usual - 'come on time for a photo ' bit in the kitchen...
It didn't take long before it started to look more like home
We spent a lovely afternoon wandering round the town and had a nice meal
I loved this clock- towery building in the middle of the town.I loved it as there was a Cath Kidston AND a Body Shop so I had to have a wee wander round them..
Then it was time to wend our way home back via the M25 - thankfully both ways were no problem - no nasty jams or anything Happy knowing they were sorted (ish) starting out on their life together.
Talking of which- I did a little digi - layout via WiddlyTinks last night of us starting our life together- ALL those years ago!!

How lovely is your layout :) And you'll be able to scrap the whole of their story for them, too!

Oh, Denise. So sweet that your son and his girlfriend are starting a new chapter, and even sweeter that you did a layout of you and your hubby starting out. ♥

PS: Doug never reads instructions of stuff he's putting together and it DRIVES me crazy!!!
