A whirlwind week

Not alot going on here folks except for wedding planning, more wedding planning and even more planning!! The past week has gone by in bit of a whirl wind to be quite honest as we get even closer to the big day, only 9 days to go now. I've got hardly any spare time at the moment -between phonecalls, list after list, dress fittings, trying to do 101 things during an 1 hour lunchbreak - whew! but we're getting there and the end is in sight.

On Saturday afternoon my two cousins Odette and Kimberley threw me a bridal shower/hen's party and what a laugh it was. I have to admit I was a little nervous beforehand, especially when I'd been told to take my swimming togs and a change of clothes but that was all a big windup. I had to wear a hat with all sorts of things hanging off it and I wasn't allowed to mention "Glenn" or "wedding" and if I did I had to blow the hooter I had hanging around my neck within 15 secs or else I had to put on something silly to wear. I ended up with quite a few extra things hanging off me!! The girls had organised some great games and I have never laughed so hard as I did while watching my mum and Glenn's mum trying to dress themselves up with a blindfold on. The theme for the presents was the letter "K" and I got some great gifts including an essential wedding night kit, something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

Later on in the evening some of us went to a local bar for some more drinks and the girls started buying me cocktails - oh my poor stomach, I won't mention the names of the cocktails here, lol.
I got home about 2am and Glenn arrived about an hour later from his night out that his groomsmen had organised. Sounds like they all had a great night too. Sunday was a very quiet day around home for us, as you can imagine,lol.

stitchingwise, Celtic Winter is coming along and I've even started some of the beading on her. I've also made a start on the Retro Ornie - its over 1 which I'm finding quite slow going as I haven't done a lot of over 1 stitching before. That will be my main focus this week I think.

Oh Katrina, what a laugh your hen's night was. Loved all the pics, and Heather and 'Mum' looked great. Got your email too....

We are counting down the days till we come up... and I just can't belive how organised I am. Thrilled to bits and are very excited.
