Blimey, so it’s now less than a month to the wedding and just over three weeks until my parents get here and I get to give them a big hug again. Very much looking forward to seeing Nicky and Lynsey too. Been missing contact with them like crazy, especially Nicky who seems to have gone AWOL as far as contact with me is concerned *wail*
Lately I’ve been getting the wibblys in my tummy but Bill says he has too so I don’t feel so bad now. Keep swinging from excited to anxious to stressed…wheeee!
Wedding plans are still a work in progress, but accomodation is now booked for my little English posse and Mary is doing a grand job organising things from her end.
Even at this late stage I still have a couple more invites to dish out, but am somewhat thwarted by a lack of addresses which makes me sad. Also it’s depressing because I know friends won’t be able to come anyway because of the distance, time and expense but I would dearly love to at least invite them. Don’t want folks to think they are forgotten just because we are now on a different continent. Don’t know if Ruairi and Rebecca read these wibblings anymore, but if you do…*waves* send us your addy?!!
Back in the office again today, am looking through the catering menu trying to make some decisions. This is proving tricky as we’ve only had a handful of responses from the invites already out so numbers are sketchy, and everything sounds so darned tasty. A big heap of profiteroles have definitely made it to the *YES* list though.
At lunch today I finally got to meet a friend of Bill’s from out of town who we were supposed to meet up with for pizza on Friday. We had a slight mix up then though because having arranged to meet at Grant Central Pizza we unfortunately ended up waiting for each other in different branches. Ooops! We fared a lot better today though as Bill picked Mark up at his hotel and we were able to converge on the pizza joint together and had a lovely lunch. Mark was very nice, relaxed and interesting to talk to. Hopefully we’ll be able to hook up with him again on Friday as he’ll be down in Milledgeville with his wife for Thanksgiving too. He seemed genuinely happy for Bill and I and it was great to meet him.
Also had a lovely surprise from Mum and Dad on IM today. They are giving us a very generous amount of cash as a wedding present so we’ll be able to buy something really nice with that I hope. That’s very exciting, particularly with the exchange rate to dollars being rather good at the moment. Initial thoughts revolve around a dishwasher or a new oven, a PROPER bathtub would be very appreciated or we were hankering after a swinging seat for the front porch during the summer months. We are both very excited about the possibilities. I think I’d like to get something that will last and we can look back on and know that was a wedding pressie from some special people. Thanks parents!
