Hello Everyone who is reading, thank you all for your messages and posts it is really great to feel that people are thinking about you, praying about you and most importantly wanting to know about you.

We have been having some sad times recently as Yesterday was Catherine’s Grandfathers funeral, it has been putting a lot of strain on us just having something else to deal with. Catherine has not been well either, although she is now on the mend. We are finaly getting our home sorted out.

At the funeral the song “My Way” was played, I think is summerises Catherine’s Grandads life.

And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I’ll say it clear,
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.

I’ve lived a life that’s full.
I’ve traveled each and ev’ry highway;
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I’ve had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.
I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say – not in a shy way,
“No, oh no not me,
I did it my way”.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

24 Hours of Marriage

Sunday, September 5th 2004 @ 4:26 pm by Richard

Well Catherine and I have now been married for over 24 Hours, the day went so well, it is almost unbelievable that it wasn’t actually a dream. The biggest disaster of the day was Susan (Catherine’s Mum) throwing chocolate down her dress.

We got a chance to go and visit Catherine’s Grandfather in Hospital, as he was unable to see the wedding, so in we walked into the hospital me in full suit, waistcoat, tie and buttonhole and Catherine in her dress, veil with her boquet. It made for some very happy paitents, not least Catherine’s Grandfather.

We have opened most of the presents now, more still to come from the Gift Registry in a couple of weeks. 07:45 tomorrow we will be heading off to the train station to travel down to Cornwall, via Bath!, for our honeymoon.

Many thanks to everyone who made it a great day for us. God Bless
