Mauritius Wedding

After 6 years together we were blessed with an intimate beach wedding on the southern peninsular of Mauritius ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ surrounded by our closest family ๐Ÿ™

Christmas Party

We hosted some of our friends for a curry ๐Ÿ› and karaoke ๐ŸŽคChristmas Party celebration ๐ŸŽ‰

First guests arrived at 4pm, last left at 2am!! ๐ŸŒ…

Birthday Celebration(s)

Christian's and Lynda's (his mother in-law) birthdays are just two days apart so the four of us grabbed a 40 min flight out of Luton at 6am! ๐Ÿ›ฉ๏ธ

Our drop zone was The Dam ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ for a 48 hour birthday and wedding present adventure! ๐ŸŽ‰

Muddy Mayhem

Early morning Leap Day fun for the three of us after โฐโฐ went off at 7am!!! ๐Ÿฅฑ Early start on a Saturday morning was hard enough let alone completing a 5k muddy assault course navigating streams! ๐ŸŠโ™‚๏ธ Luckily Shelley headed up from London donned the war paint and motivate us both!! โšกโšก

Mauritius Wedding Sep 2019

We set our hearts on a longer, hotter and more intimate wedding than the UK's traditional cold, expensive and it's all over before you've realised it affair! ๐Ÿค”

So we each took our two closest family members but didn't tell them where in the world we were all flying to for the wedding!! ๐Ÿ›ฉ๏ธ ๐ŸŒŽ

Our guests thought they'd be going somewhere local like an hour to Paris they eventually found out it was Mauritius, Africa ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡บ when we arrived at the flights departure gate! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿคฃ

Yep, someone of them had not been on a long haul flight for a rather long time so it took a fair amount of persuading๐Ÿท๐Ÿท to actually squeeze them all onto the 12 hour flight!! ๐Ÿ˜…

The experience was beautifully conducted by Daveena and expertly captured by Rajesh our photographer who took over 500 photos of our two weeks in paradise which now take pride of place in a photo book in our lounge! ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Christmas Party Dec 2019

A big football match and Anthony Joshua boxing ๐ŸฅŠ meant our Christmas guests started arriving from 4pm! ๐Ÿ“บ

Luckily most of our guests arrived prepared and fully loaded (in bottles) with Prosecco!! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

We all then spent the the next 6 hours enjoying Andrea's spectacular curry splash ๐Ÿ› ๐Ÿ› before everyone got lively on the karaoke machine!! ๐ŸŽค

We didn't know our friends were such talented singers ๐ŸŽฅ

Will invite Simon Cowell next time ๐Ÿ˜‚

Managed to get the final guests off the karaoke and out the door at 2am!! ๐Ÿšช

Birthday Celebrations Feb 2020

Our 48 hour adventure to Amsterdam ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ was our wedding present from Anthony & Lynda which we'd received in an envelope on our wedding day ๐ŸŽ We combined our gift with both Christian & Lynda's birthdays.

We split the 48 hours in two kicking off the first day in The Hague ambling around taking photos of buildings and wandering around the canal.

2nd day we hit the Heineken Experience and hard as you get free ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ if it's your birthday! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

They're an interesting bunch the Dutch. Not only do they craft beer well. They're communicate directly and effectively which like the beer is rather refreshing ๐Ÿ‘

Despite Lynda's recent double hip replacement she showed the three of us how to walk 10 miles around a large city centre in the cold, while smiling and of course taking on-board refreshments ๐Ÿฅ‚

After a 3 hour journey (๐ŸŒช๏ธ Storm Ciara) Jean came down and enjoyed the Newman family birthday event at one of London's best pubs in Paddington, London! ๐Ÿฅฉ๐Ÿท

Lunch was following by a Handmade Salted Caramel Toffee Birthday Cake crafted by Andrea's but enjoyed by most of the pubs staff and customers! ๐Ÿฐ ๐Ÿ˜‹

Carrying on the Dutch ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ thread we then to our life in our own hands (Coronavirus) and headed to Chinatown and enjoyed a few entertaining hours with Alan and Shelley in the UK's best Dutch Bar! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿบ

Christian's actual birthday was on a working day and a Monday at that! ๐Ÿค”

At 6pm after a day on the grind and not knowing anything was planned Christian was walked round to the local hotel cocktail bar by a friend.

Laying in wait and ready was the Prosecco Brigade ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿฅ‚ and a couple of close friends who made some long trips! ๐Ÿ™

While the evening started civilised and paired with excellent bar food it evolved into a blur ๐Ÿคฏ with us being the last to leave at 11pm!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Muddy Mayhem Feb 2020

Shelley & Keith landed nice and early ๐ŸŒ… Got to the venue and enjoyed half an hour of Zumba ๐ŸŽถ warm up (in the freezing cold โ„๏ธ) The three of us completed the event with 800 crazy others with a smile on our faces!!! ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… The 5k course was around the beautiful surroundings of Knebworth House ๐Ÿฐ Hertfordshire. We spent the afternoon in recovery mode nursing various bruises with a cold drink or two ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿบ and the evening replacing our lost calories! ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ ๐Ÿ›
