Mary had her operation on Wednesday night and had the left leg amputated from above the knee. She is doing fine and has improved somewhat. Now we have to get her on the long road to recovery but now we are optomistic she will do well as she seems to be more with us since the op.
We returned home and enjoyed our friends wedding day on Friday. Simon and Lorraine tied the knot in the lovely Leasowe castle on the banks of the Mersey estuary. The castle was built in 1592 as a lookout tower by Ferdinando, the 5th Earl of Derby. In the following year he was awarded with the Manor of Wallasey, and in 1594 became the Mayor of Liverpool. The original purpose of the building is not known but it is likely to have been built in connection with sporting activities, possibly as a viewing area for the famous Wallasey races, the forerunners of the Derby race. Today it has been enlarged to this elegant hotel with beautiful interior decor.

So TTFN for now.
