This is just to share the brilliant news that miracles do happen and that 'happy ever after' do come true. On Friday 20th September this year, 2013, Tony and I married at Gretna Green: The Mill Forge, with a team who made every part of our time with them just that extra bit special.
It was a small gathering, but wonderful to have share the very special day with us my younger sister and her two boys, with girlfriend; together with my middle sister and her partner, and all the way from Armenia where she has been residing, my daughter and her partner 'H'. All the people I love most in all the world ... and my deepest sadness was that my parents who passed away some years ago could not physically be with us to see me finally happy and at peace.
The ceremony was at 10am, after which we left everyone to the prepared buffet in our wake and made a mad dash for the overnight ferry at Portsmouth. Our honeymoon was spent in La Rochelle, France, where we delighted in ambling through the little cobbled streets at the side of the harbour, enjoying whatever came.
We're still only just coming down to earth!
But then ... news in the writing world has suddenly set me on a different path, and already we are looking ahead to the future.
I will retain my maiden name for writing: JANINE HARRINGTON.
More news to follow ...
