The Wedding looms

In my previous blog Pre-Holiday Concerns, I mentioned my daughter’s forthcoming wedding in Cyprus. Well, the day is almost upon us & I need to practice packing her dress in a small box, let alone pack all the other bits I have got carried away with to take with me! Yes, typical doting mum has spent a fortune of frippery! 

There’s the sashes for the chairs & the beach marquee, A ring cushion & some other bits that I’d better not mention in case my daughter & her partner happen to read this before the day!

Suffice to say the nerves are kicking in with me.  I’m a total worrier about things I have no control over! Sod’s law is that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong in my book.  But I’ve promised that I will chill, that I will just concentrate on packing my bags & that dress.

I did buy the loveliest pair of open toe shoes for the wedding – a bargain from Marks & Spencer which were a perfect fit – until I put them on yesterday as a dress rehearsal!  They almost crippled me 😦 I live 5 miles out of town, don’t drive, we are short staffed so hubby can’t take me. (We work Saturday too!) We’re already booked for Sunday and I need another pair of shoes!!  Aaaaarrrrgghh!!!! Why don’t we have a shoe shop instead of a gift shop?

Sorry got a bit panicky there!

I suppose I could go barefoot?  The wedding is on a beach after all! but then we will be going back to the bar afterwards I expect so I need to do something.

I already have appointments booked for next week (Nails, Hair etc) the usual pre-holiday grooming that we women seem to do.

Our local town will be hopeless for special glam wedding shoes as the only shoe shop we have is closing down & seems to have an abundance of winter boots at the moment!  No, I will need to go to a bigger town with plenty of choice (I have awkward feet & am a trifle fussy).

Well, enough of my ramblings dear reader.  I will keep you updated as much as possible.  Packing will be commenced very shortly and oh what fun that will be ……. that’s sarcasm by the way!

Til next time – happy reading.

Please don’t hesitate to comment I’d love to hear your suggestions!
