Birthdays & Wedding Days

Tomorrow we are off to a family birthday BBQ, we are collecting MIL & SFIL on the way & we will leave when they get tired. Mil loves to attend family events, but the travelling is difficult for her.

We received a wedding invitation this morning, the wedding has been brought forward a year in the hope that MIL will be able to attend. 
We aren't having a holiday this year as we have purchased a car, but I have my pension lump sum due soon, this will be used to pay off the car loan. There will be enough left to pay for two rooms in the hotel, one for us & one for MIL & SFIL where the Wedding reception is to be held.  
I can't drive to & from the reception as I can no longer see to drive in the dark & the reception doesn't start until 4 o'clock & it will be dark by then.
