I haven’t kept to my posting schedule. It just hasn’t worked out for me. In the middle of September we (my mother and I) started planning my
long overdue wedding. It’s been pretty full on since.
Tonight I find myself sitting, trying to get university work done before I get married tomorrow and am not able to do it in time for class on Monday. I’ve been pretty organised with regards to wedding prep. I like to stay on top of things, and it’s worked pretty well.
The final dress fittings were done yesterday and today; the dresses were delivered this evening. The cake was picked up by my mother and brother yesterday (to save me a job) but when I saw it I couldn’t believe how they’d screwed it up. So I had to go back with it and tell them I was dissatisfied. That got picked up this morning (no long lies for us!) and, thankfully it was umpteen times better!
Tonight I guess I should be doing something relaxing. Instead I’m critiquing fellow classmates’ writing. Then I’m revising my vows and my thank you speech as well as making last minute tweaks. It’s hard not to feel a little deflated.
I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of my friends and family. I don’t just mean gifts. I mean the kind wishes and compliments and nice thoughts that people have shared with us. We’ve received lovely cards in the post and a wonderful delivery arrived the other evening. The wonderful, incredibly talented and astoundingly generous Cyranette sent Mister T and I the most beautiful, thoughtful and kind gift. I don’t know how I can ever begin to tell her how grateful and how touched we were by it! Thank you so very much.
I guess this is my last post as an unwed woman… I’ll let you know how it feels to be on the other side!
