Hang on, I'm starting at the end here. Let's try again.
After the excesses of the previous day, the morning of the wedding I was up early. Too early. Hungover and shaky and in dire need of some air at 6am early. I slipped out of the bedroom, desperately trying not to disturb Kate who was sleeping soundly, pulled the dress I was wearing the night before over my head, grabbed my cardigan, a pair of sandals and the room key and went for a walk.
I was feeling much more clear headed now, so I walked back to the room, took a couple of painkillers for the wine fuelled headache that was pounding behind my eyes and went back to sleep.
A few hours later and I felt so much better. A hot shower cleared the last of the lingering hangover away, whilst Alex, Carolyn's husband, rustled the four of us up a breakfast packed with scrambled eggs, toast and sausages from the supplies that Jo's parents had left in the kitchen for us. The wedding wasn't until 1pm so we had a lazy morning of painting nails, chatting and catching up with life. I haven't seen Carolyn since we finished sixth form, and although I have kept up to date with her news via the wonder of facebook, it is much nicer to be able to actually spend time with someone and hear their news in person!
The following morning we got up late, ate another cooked breakfast care of kitchen supplies, then we packed up our bags, headed up to the castle to say goodbye (quietly, a lot of people were nursing hangovers!) and started the long journey back home.
Utterly brilliant wedding with wonderful people.
Love you Jo xx
