Reader, I married him


First Love and I were married on 28 December 2007 in Portree Registry Office, on the Isle of Skye.

The weather and his health were kind to us that day. But he totally overdid it trying to walk the Cuillins and when he gets tired he gets depressed. So it has been a celebration tinged with sadness.


We stayed at the Marmalade Hotel, where they were incredibly kind to us. We arrived in the midst of a storm, to find the hotel closed! So we spent the first night at its supposedly-posher sister hotel, the Bosville. The food was lovely there, but the room was small, the walls paper-thin and the rain was lashing the windows all night, straight from the sea. It was a relief to transfer to the larger rooms of the more peacefully-located Marmalade. They gave us flowers and chocolates by way of apology for the mix-up - they hadn't realised we were booking Boxing Day night. And we had the best of all possible service when they realised we were getting married the next day! Lovely people, lovely place.

Fashion notes will follow!
