Wedding blues... pinks, butterflies....

It has been commented that it past time I blogged again. Where does time go? I think it gets eaten when I am not looking or is it that when I am on the computer I have a compulsion to play Spider solitaire???

Who and what can I blame this time for my sad lack of entries? M.E. well that's a given, Dad being in hospital and me Mum sitting? That was a bit unexpected. Wedding preparations? I think all of the above and I apologise to anyone if they have felt ignored by me....No not you Monster, you never get ignored.

Dad is getting better, I think, I hightailed it down to Southampton last Monday having cancelled a week of appointments apart from my hair, that I kept and I stayed until Thursday afternoon. It was a bit tiring but even so I felt bad leaving Mum on her own to do the bulk of the chores.

When I came home it was time to tidy and clean the house which admittedly was not as bad as I thought it would be. Pining Husband didn't do a bad job!!! Then it was onto the most important of chores!!!! Finally nail all the last bit of wedding prep down. I don't recall going to this much trouble for my own wedding! I would like to say that sourcing all the bits needed at the right price, right colour, size etc was taxing to say the least; but as usual when given a stress head and a deadline I get down to it and finish it. All I need to do now is sit back and wait for the deliveries to arrive, put the centre pieces almost together oh and one more thing what was it now? Ah yes slightly important!!! Sort out the food and wine!!!! Asda is useless can I say that?

So this afternoon I will be industriously employed in pinning ribbon and butterflies onto white candles and trying not to scream in frustration when my fingers don't do what they are supposed to do. Meal out tonight though so that is good, no cooking. I must remember though to bake some cake for husband and I to eat at said wedding. I am thinking my favourite Hummingbird chocolate cakes, they translate well to gluten and dairy free. MMM drooling at the thought and I desperately want to cook but I think the weight is creeping on again so no no no baking. If it isn't in the house I can't eat it.........
