Another Wedding Show

Thursday, February 26th 2004 @ 10:05 pm by Catherine

Tomorrow Richard and I are off to another wedding show. This time it’s the national wedding show at olympa. We are on the look out for a veil for me and ideas for flowers and such like. Mainly just for more ideas.

It looks like we have possibily have a hall for the recption, it would be lovely to have since it was the same place that my parents had their recption 26 years ago. I won’t be sure until the begining of next week when mum confirms it.

So much of the wedding feels like it is coming together now, we still have a long way to go with just over six months until we get married.

Strange happenings on Richards Blog

Wednesday, February 25th 2004 @ 4:00 am by Richard

Some of our readers may not realise that I have my own blog, that is very heavly oriented to random stuff that I find on the internet and general stuff about university work and so on over at – [ http://www.richard-slater.co.uk/ ], recently some strange happenings have been going on mainly to do with a certain blog entry about a game involving a whale, a yeti and 10 penguines, and according to the minds and fingers of a certain parent is animal cruelty. Just thought I would pop in and say this.

In wedding news, we have arranged a photographer his name is Brian and he is my parents next door neighbour, he has his own website – [ http://www.imagesofjazz.co.uk/ ] – he is quite good and he is doing some very fair rates, on the subject of websites and photographs my parents recently went to Norway for a cruise, my dad took his new digital camera the results can be found on his website – [ http://www.daveslater.co.uk/ ] the scenery looks loverly, maybe Catherine and I will get to go on a cruse some time in the future.

… and on the subject of holidays we are planning to find a nice cottage in either Cornwall or the Lake District to spend our honeymoon, so if anyone knows of any really good places for the two of us to spend some quality time together please drop us a line on the forums. We are developing the site more and more, you cant see any of it at the moment because it is not finished, but as and when it is ready to be released it will slowly appear on the site, if you would like to see something in particular then please post a comment or sign up to our forums and let us know what you want to see.

Tigger and Wedding Fair and Church

Wednesday, February 18th 2004 @ 4:34 pm by Catherine

Well I’ve bearly stopped since Richard left yesterday. I’ve been busy getting my financial support for uni sorted out.

Richard didn’t mention that on Valentine’s day he gave me a lovely tigger, so that when I miss him and need a hug I can get one with tigger. For those of you that don’t know I addore tigger.

We also went to our first wedding fair, it was quite a small show but it was very useful for ideas on cakes and hair slides.

We recived an email from the Baptist church in Crawley today saying that we can use there church, so we now have a venue for the wedding and all we have to do is look for somewhere to have the recption.

I’m hoping to go shopping with my mum on Saturday to have a look at different ideas for flowers and also for things for the reception. It feels as if it is all starting to pull together now and not be quite so manic.

Valentines Day

Monday, February 16th 2004 @ 6:22 pm by Richard

Well, I am still in London at the moment at Catherine’s house, Saturday was Valentines Day here is the story:

8:10 AM: Catherine wakes me up and asks me to come into her room as she has a surprise for me… waiting in her room by the futon was a plate of crossaunts and some strawberry jam… Catherine had got up early to get me breakfast to help me wake up in the morning!

10:00 AM: We finaly leave the house, much to the joy of Catherine’s parents!

11:00 AM: We get into London Bridge planning to spend the day wandering round London. Our first point of call was to head for the Christian Bookshop near Holborn, we picked up a couple of bits and pieces for different people before heading off towards the Natural History Museum to eat our packed lunch.

1:00 PM: We got to the Natural History Museum and managed to totaly get lost inside, first we entered from the wrong side of the exibition to be able to get into the picnic area, then we managed to totaly loose our barings in a maze of gallerys. Finaly finding the Picnic area we ate our lunch at a leasurly pace… nearly falling asleep afterwards because we were already tired. We went to look at the spiky Dinosaurs, Catherine nearly colapsed because it was so stuffy in the exibit, it was affecting me as I was getting a headache too.

3:00 PM: We decided to go to McDonalds as we were still hungry after all our rushing about and some rather dissapointing cheese and onion rolls from ASDA (I didn’t like ASDA before, I like them even less now!)

4:00 PM: We wanted to pop into a couple of shops on Oxford St. before heading back so we wandered along there for a bit, before hopping on the tube, towards the DLR station so we would get a interesting ride back to Lewisham before the train jorney home.

8:00 PM: Got home, after a long, tiring but very enjoyable day Smile

Its my turn next Valentines day.

Well my first posting to the blog hopefully one of many to come. I’m really busy right now as I’ve moved back from uni to my parents home now until the summer when Richard and I marry.

I’ve still got to find half of my things as others helped with the paccking. I’m searching for jobs now, only want a part time one and it will probably be in retail as i’m limited to what I can do as I’ve got problems with my hands.

I wish I was back at Sussex uni doing my engineering degree right now it would be easier in so many ways. I really miss some of the courses and the people, many of them will have gone by the time I start back in October.

Ok now I must be off since I need to dig out my room and fill in the dreaded application forms.
