Congratulations Mari!

On the Summit with me and Mammasaurus.co.uk

My good blogging friend Mari, of Mari’s World gets married this weekend. Having spent some happy times together: as Panasonic Intelligent Living mum ambassadors, giggling like school girls in Home Ec; having hijacked her hen do to make her climb Snowdon and having shared stories of life and love on the long road from Snowdon to Stoke on Trent, I couldn’t let the day pass without a huge CONGRATULATIONS to the happy pair!

Mari is a wonderful lady to meet, full of positive energy and it was no surprise to me that she wanted to join Team Honk Snowdon to raise money for Comic Relief, despite the fact she had a lovely cosy meal with her hens planned. (I might have swayed her slightly by telling her Davina McCall had her hen on Snowdon). It was an absolute privilege to have team honk’s climb become Mari’s second hen and I know all Team Honk Snowdon wish her love and happiness.

Raising a hot cuppa to you Mari and Mr Mari’s World! Cheers!

This wasn’t the point of the post, but if you want to wish Mari well you can sponsor her here for her Snowdon climb, she’d love to see us hit £6000.
