yesterday, I hurtled not only into my 26th year of being, but also headlong into my 6 month pre-versary for wifedom (yes, those are words - it was my birthday don't argue with me). For my birthday, I got a hell of a lot of milk tray, and flowers. 3 vases worth to be precise! I also got a subscription to country living and selvedge magazines too. reading for a year! :)
as a 'celebration' of the 6 month marker, lovely bridesmaid decided it was high time we re wrote the list of doom, as I wasn't completing things on it anymore, and more needed to be added. We split most of the points up so that it is easier for me to tick things off the list (procrastination in its truest form!) so now, instead of there being 'Rings', it is divided into 4 points: ' 1-order James samples, 2- Order James ring, 3- decide on my design, 4- and order my ring'. simples. or mental however you want to look at it! Obviously it works though, as I've already done one thing on the list.
And then, just because I like laying things out and sorting them, I unpacked my boxes of wedding paraphernalia, and laid them out on the floor. GEEK.
2 umbrellas (I'm trying the find the 3rd one still), doily envelopes, 11 bowls, 7 vases, lots of lace, 13 candles, 4 hankies, 3 fat quarters, 1photo album, 7 jamjars, 12 wicker hearts, and 8 ties.
so at 6 months to go, we have:
church:booked, and cousin as organist, and aunt saying final prayers, and friends for readings chosen, although no readings yet!
florist: booked, vases for church, bought( - 1), pew end decorations, bought.
bridesmaids:chosen, dresses bought, shoes nearly there, clutch bags, about to be made. jewellery, in progress
men: chosen, outfits booked and paid, ties bought.
table centres: bought, just need dried stuff to sit in them.
mother of the bride outfit: bought, just need fascinator
cake: sister in law making, fruit/Madeira/chocolate
cakestand: in progress, a friend making me a ceramic one.
hairdresser: found, booking trials for mum and lovely bridesmaid in the summer.
there's probably other things I've done, of far less importance, but I can't remember them now!
p.s. can you tell lists are calming me at the moment?!
