42. Topsy the wedding car

With the nice-ish weather we've had, Topsy has been out and about too quite a lot, with a couple of weekends away in Weardale trying out the awning with the kids and dog, and a few weekends up in Teesdale too. During that time Topsy passed her MOT and has had a bit of a service in preperation for the grand tour of scotchland, which will last as long as our megre amount of cash does!

The other rather exciting news for Topsy was when Leslie and John got married, and Topsy was a guest of honor charged with taking the groom

and the grooms Mum, and best man Stuart to the wedding venue! Twas a lovely day and Topsy looked spiffingly good in all her ribbons and balloons....and the bride looked fantastic too .... here's what the local rag, the Newton News had to say...
John Embleton and Lesley Ann Oxley were married on the 4th July 2009 at Bishop Auckland Registrar’s Office. The Reception was held at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre. the groom travelled to his wedding with Best Man Stewart Imeson in a camper van. In contrast his bride arrived in a white stretch limousine escorted by her son Christopher, and three Bridesmaids Ellie, Kyla and Ebony.
John is employed at Darchem Engineering and Lesley is a children’s nurse. They enjoyed their honeymoon in Rhodes after a few days in a cottage at Whitby. The happy couple thank John’s family and all their friends for making the wedding a day to remember.
