Martin married Julia on Friday. Matthew had an A-level exam first thing but we rushed to Streatley directly he finished. Despite a concern that Dad would be unable to make it up to Reading for the day, he seemed well and was getting his appetite back after a week when he sounded quite ill.
The wedding was small and intimate and in a the great surroundings of Basildon Park.
After the wedding we all went to a hotel on the Thames called the Beetle & Wedge, where we had a great meal and a cruise on an old steam powered river boat. The boys enjoyed the evening and we were very proud of their behaviour and interaction with the other guests.
We drove back at around midnight on clear roads, but arrived home very tired.
