Guv'nor recently returned from a short visit to his homeland England. His only sister's only daughter was getting married and he went to the wedding. Our whole family desperately wanted to go as well, but our travel budget is fairly limited these days. Flights to the UK cost around $1000. Times 5 if we all went. Plus, now that we have chickens, someone needs to be here to feed them and make sure they're locked up tight at night.

He was able to visit with his family, old school friends, church friends, our neighborhood friends and work colleagues. England was in the midst of a heat wave with temperatures in the 80's and 90's daily. Guv'nor loved it.

He brought back treats that we missed from our favorite store Marks and Spencer. He brought tea for me.

He stayed half of the time with his parents who live in an old house. Tudor old.

His parents have a wonderful organic vegetable garden.

They were picking peas.

They shelled peas.

He trimmed hedges.

The wedding was in a little village called Harleston.

He stayed in a small hotel.

Harleston high street.

The wedding was held in this picturesque church building.

The guests inside the church building.

The reception was held in a marquee.

Afternoon tea was served for the reception.

He walked down our old street in North London.

He walked past our old house.

He walked through the local woods.

He ate with friends at our favorite fish and chips restaurant.

He walked up the hill to Ally Pally.

He watched a cricket match on a local green.

He brought treats for the children.

He brought me tea, cakes and biscuits.
