Wedding trip part 3: arrival in England

After a very long pause, I continue with my series of posts telling the story of our trip to Scotland and back to get married.

Into the Future

Because I’ve wasted so much time with pointless babbling, I have had no time to create books of photography and of special holidays, yet I have wasted ten percent of my working day in inanities. So, no more. No more drivel. No more wasted time and a re-invigoration of my creativity.
