Paper Surprise

Remember my birthday surprises, and how you thought there was no way I could possibly still be talking about them in MAY, considering my birthday was in March? You were wrong. I still had one surprise left to redeem. That…

terry's wedding shoes

Two years ago today…

…Terry and I got married: (Yes, that’s the same Forth Rail Bridge we visited this weekend. What can I say, clearly we have a thing about bridges…) As with my birthday, and other anniversaries, the evidence of the passing of…

I’m Getting Married in the Morning

Aaargh, getting married in the morning, folks! One sleep to go! Unfortunately, such is the level of anxiety caused by the imminent departure of my doggie for Las Vegas, combined with the fear of flying I mentioned in my last…

This could totally happen to me

Two Sleeps to Go: Travelling Light

Despite the title of this entry, anyone who seen the recent photo I posted of my shoes will probably have guessed that I’m not really much of a one for travelling light. Oh hell no. In fact, I’ve just spent…

Three Sleeps to Go

Weal Watch: The weals are still in situ, but every day brings them a little closer to normality, and I have everything crossed that they will have disappeared completely by Saturday. Oh please, God, let them have disappeared completely by…

Five Sleeps to Go: Bright Eyes, Burning Like Fire…

OK, so we have antihistamine cream. We have haemorrhoid cream. We have industrial strength intensive cream for very dry skin. We have a little miniature hairdryer which, OK, has nothing at all to do with the RED WEALS, but which…

Red (Weal ) Alert!

There’s just six days to go until the wedding folks, and guess what I got this week? Yes, that’s right, I got me some RED WEALS. Aaargh! You remember my red weals, don’t you? They were the huge, ugly ass…

Marching On (Ho Ho!)

So, that thing I said about having finished all of my Projects of Doom for the month? Scratch that. Actually, my life just seems to be one huge, endless P.O.D at the moment: no sooner is one finished than another…

A Peg Tooth in a Round Hole

I hate Mondays. I particularly hate those Mondays, though, that kick off with me having two teeth ripped from my head. I mean, isn’t that just a totally sucky way to start the week? Of course, it wasn’t actually my…

Dental Etiquette

I’m going to the dentist on Monday. It’s costing me more than I earn in a month. I AM GOING TO DIE, people. TO. DIE. And it’s not that I’m scared of the dentist. Not really. I mean, sure, I…

Wedding planning continues apace…

So, today I spent over £800 in less than an hour. And how are you, today?

Here’s what I bought:

Pool

That? Oh, that’s just the private-pool-with-sea-view at the villa we have booked for our honeymoon (or, OK, a small corner of the pool, and you can’t really see it very well anyway, but I didn’t take the picture, OK? GOD.). Yes, we have BOOKED

Who knew shoe shopping could be this difficult?

My shoes arrived. Arrived, and will be going right back where they came from tout de suite because as soon as I opened the box (with my heart in my mouth, natch), it was glaringly obvious that they’re just totally…

Ah well, I tried my best…

You know what’s weird? When you order pants (and by "pants" I mean underwear, for the benefit of those of you in the States) from a catalogue or website, and they come on a weeny little pant-sized hanger. WHY? Seriously,…

My new favourite place

So, you would think I’d have learned by now that drinking wine at lunchtime is not such a good thing, huh? Or, indeed, eating a three course meal, for that matter. Because now it’s 17.31, I’m back at my desk…

Monday, May 1st, 2006

 People, we have a dress. We have a VERA WANG dress. Let me just say it again: Vera. Wang. Dress. Oh. My. God. The Precious was purchased early yesterday evening and will be winging its way towards me sometime this…
