Saturday 9th September. 7 sleeps to go.
THIS TIME NEXT WEEK!! Oh it makes my belly do a flop, but in a good excited way. This time next week I will be married (it is now 14.58) MAD. So mad. I keep saying it but I cannot believe how quickly it has all come around. It rained all day yesterday, so I hope that it doesn’t next weekend. Currently the weather report is not for rain, but have looked into umbrellas. Will keep an eye on the forecast. I don’t mind if its grey, just really don’t want it to be wet because we have the lawn games and the photos will be so much nicer outside! I don’t suppose anyone really wants rain on their wedding day though do they? Maybe if you are a duck.
Jezz and I finalised the quiz this morning, so I just need to go and get those printed in the week. The ribbons all arrived this morning so I have sat and cut the extra pieces that we will need for the favours. He has gone for a hair cut, and we have sorted out for my Dad to pick up the suits on Thursday next week.
Organise organise organise. I am in my element hahaha!
This time next week. YAY!
Sunday 10th September. 6 sleeps to go.
I have had the laziest day ever I cannot lie. Jezz has been working hard on his speech all day. I had a bath. Glorious.
Monday 11th September. 5 sleeps to go.
I was planning on waking up early today to get cracking with numerous jobs I had planned. I had forgotten that I had turned my alarm off for Mondays the previous week due to the bank holiday. I woke up at 9.30am. Oops.
I got up and headed to the Brow Bar in Brighton (I think that is what it is called, near the clock tower on Dyke Road) and had my eyebrows tidied ready for the weekend. I do not get them done very often, but thought it worth it! Special occasion and that haha. I then went to the jewellers where we bought our wedding rings and I took my engagement ring there to be polished. As we bought our wedding rings with them it was free. Fantastic! (Ring Jewellers in the Lanes if anyone is interested, they were great).
I had a shopping list of things to get in Waitrose. Came out of Waitrose without any of them. Forgot to pick my watch that was being repaired up from the jewellers in the mall. Fail. I went home for lunch and thought I had best start again afterwards. I had to go back to the jewellers for 1pm anyway to collect my engagement ring. So at 12.30 off I attempted my various errands again. I went to Superdrug for paracetamol, ibuprofen, glasses wipes and mouthwash. Then via the mall to pick up my watch, then down to the jewellers in The Lanes to collect my engagement ring. Then back to the flat, again without the items on the Waitrose shopping list, will do that another day its not urgent.
Emailed Jezz to print a few bits for the weekend. Think I have had a pretty productive day all in all! I must discuss with the girls about walking down the aisle, wonder how the little ones will deal with it all.
I rang John Lewis to arrange the delivery of the wedding gift list, that’s exciting! So Monday 9th October something to look forward too. They text me to confirm the details and addressed me as “Mrs Goodwin”. Haha. Weird.
Tuesday 12th September. 4 sleeps to go.
I woke up nice and early because my alarm worked! HURRAH! Not that the alarm would have made a difference because they are doing some work in the flat upstairs and the banging was SO LOUD it would have woken the dead. Thanks, nice and relaxing. Haha.
Today’s big wedding task is to do all the favours. It is currently 11.36am and I am half way through. Taking all of my will power not to eat all of the chocolate. MUST RESIST URGE TO EAT CHOCOLATE. I also will mount all of the timetables Jezz printed yesterday onto some card. I also need to send some money to our videographer, who is a friend of my brothers for his transport.
Going to text the mums of our mini bridesmaids right this second about walking down the aisle to see what they think! Before I forget, stupid thing that kept me up last night haha. I wasn’t worried, just thinking about it. I mean they are little girls, it is probably going to be down to them at the end of the day but I really don’t mind. If they decide they don’t want to walk they don’t have too. I just want them to feel like beautiful special princesses for the day! THEY ARE GOING TO LOOK SO CUTE.
