Looks like you all had a great time last week with the ATC swop, I was quite pleased with myself as I managed to do a scheduled post which Julia linked up for me, I hope the ATC arrived Julia!
Whilst all the desk hopping was going on we were en route to Bydgoszcz in Poland for our eldest sons wedding. Everything went to plan, we all managed to meet at the hotel as planned before flying out the following day.

 My room looks the same as last week, almost, with the addition of a pile of ironing which I'm sure you really don't want to see so here's a few piccies instead.

Bydgoszcz is a very pretty town with lovely riverside walks and plenty of restaurants and coffee shops selling an amazing assortment of cakes, I did have to partake, just once, honestly, a blueberry cheesecake which was absolutely delicious.

The bride and groom arriving at the wedding reception, a novel way to arrive, sipping champers while the guests wait on the balcony. Magdalena was quite concerned about it beforehand as we all joked it would be a rowing boat, Steve actually thought the whole wedding party would be joining them!

Bring on the Wedding cake, Polish style, we were amazed it didn't melt with the heat.
We had already had the main course, Chicken, rolled beef, pork knuckle and all the trimmings, after an hour or so of dancing the waiter wheeled out a roast pig lit up with fireworks! I was so amazed I totally forgot to take a photo.
We left just after 1am so missed the soup that was served at 2am!! Apparently some guests were still partying at 4am. 
We had a lovely four days, the last day spent at the summer house near the lake with the family, sadly we all had to say goodbye, we all flew back to Stansted together, bride and groom home to London, youngest son to San Francisco and we stayed in the hotel another night as we had a 6am flight back to Alicante.
Just off for a swim so until next week, Happy WOYWW

  5. Oh, Jan what a fabulous wedding! Wow! The boat was a wonderful touch. I loved that wedding card you made for them too. I am sure they will frame it!

  6. Thanks for sharing those pictures. What a novel way for the couple to arrive. I'm glad everything went to plan. It's quite an organizing nightmare to get the family together from different parts of the world (I know from experience)
    Thanks for you visit earlier this week,
    Have a good week (or whats left of it)
