Monday 4th September. 12 sleeps to go.
I have just had a bath and am sat watching Say Yes to the Dress. I am not sure I will ever stop enjoying this programme. Currently every time they do a scene where a couple are actually getting married I get all the stomach butterflies and that internal scream of excitement. I am so incredibly excited. I am also shitting my pants, for silly reasons like, what if I fall over, or say something wrong or stupid, or feel so awkward that I just constantly pull my stupid face, which happens when I am nervous and uncomfortable!! Haha. I MUST NOT PULL STUPID FACES. Bad face. Just nice face. What is my nice face? Not sure I have one….
It’s still over a week so I am at the point where I do actually think most of the things are done. I still need to print some of the things for the quiz we have planned for during the meal, and reserved signs for the seating at the ceremony. The day timings and list of jobs for people also to be printed. My brain has been running wild with wedding thoughts for the past 3 weeks. I need to CHILL OUT. Haha.
Did I mention I am excited?
Shit me I am excited.
I hope my dress still fits.
I am going to be Mrs. That is like some proper grown-upping. 10 grown up points? Probably at least 100.
Tuesday 5th September. 11 sleeps to go.
Today Jezz worked from home. I went off to Lewes to drop off the pyjamas I have got for my mum, and the bridesmaids so that they are in their rooms when they arrive on the Friday night. I hope that they like them. I had a little wonder around Lewes to refresh myself with the area, made a note of the nearest cash points and kebab shop.
Came home and had sushi lunch from Itsu. Yummy.
I spent the afternoon cracking on with wedding bits. Oh so many bits. I spent a good hour making paper hats, and cutting out celebrity masks. We have loads of silly comedy stuff for the reception for a bit of fun! We also got a whole bunch of leis which when I opened STANK. So they are currently sat in the kitchen airing out (or at least smelling of other food smells/febreeze than rotting grot). Feeling in control. Feeling good. Feeling less panicky.
Wednesday 6th September. 10 sleeps to go.
I went over to Hove to collect Jezz’s gift for the big day from the framers. I got it home and immediately wrapped it and hid it with all the other wedding shinanigans so he wont spot it. I still need to write the card. Bought to much shopping in Tescos and had to carry tremendously heavy bags back quite a way, rookie move. I got the chocolates and sweets for the favours and I will make those up next week. I must resist the urge to eat them. They are calling me from the other room… must ignore their cries to be eaten.
I have the world’s biggest spot coming on the end of my nose. Great. Attacking it with all the products. MUST. RESIST. TRYING. TO. POP.
I bought a T-Shirt with “Mrs” on because I am a massive dork and also I think that will be quite funny to come for breakfast in on the Sunday morning. Getting sooooooo excited! The parentals are coming over tomorrow for a final meeting to get everything together. I need to print a bunch of stuff but I am sure it’s not ready yet, so might have to find an internet café to do that… if such a thing even exists anymore!
Thursday 7th September. 9 sleeps to go.
Mum and Dad came over to discuss last things and I feel very much in control of the situation. Which is exactly where I wanted to be at this point! Just need to assign jobs, prints things, put favours in the boxes. Pack the bags.
Hope that this nose spot buggers off.
Did I mention I am excited?? Eeeeeeeeeeaaaaakkkkkkk.
Mrs Amy Goodwin.
I should do some relaxing stuff next week, take my mind of the big day. Not that I want to stop thinking about it but want to be relaxed. It’s very hard to be relaxed when you are so tremendously excited! SQUEEAK.
Hoping the spare ribbon I bought turns up tomorrow. And the yellow hoodie I ordered over a week ago. WHERE IS MY YELLOW HOODIE? (unrelated to wedding).
Friday 8th September. 8 sleeps to go.
This time next week it will be all systems go! My silly t-shirt has arrived, it’s great! Haha! I am sure it will draw a few chuckles. I keep playing the day over in my head, and imagining it. Must remember to savour each moment. It will all be over so quickly I am sure, I am so excited. I think I have said that quite a lot!
I have zero ability to not pick at spots and have made the one on my nose worse. Dammit. Still a week to go, must not pick at it any more and hopefully it will heal in time! Fingers crossed.
I have put the menus in the crates. I am hoping that the extra ribbon I ordered will arrive tomorrow as it hasn’t arrive today. Then I can do the favours. Oooooh it’s so close now. Need to have a relaxing weekend. Next weekend is going to be nuts.
To be continued…..
