Got It!!!

Wednesday, March 31st 2004 @ 2:25 pm by Richard

We got a flat!!!!

It was only the second flat that we looked at, but the landlord and lady seemed lovely, the tennancy agreement is all in order and the price it not too bad (painfull never the less), the flat is 5 minutes walk from Churchill Square, 2 Minutes from Waitrose on the 25 Bus route… all in all a perfect location Smile both Catherine and I think we will be very happy Smile

Can you fall in love with a house?

Thursday, March 25th 2004 @ 11:08 pm by Richard

I certainly have been wondering this myself since I went to look at a house with Catherine today… it is 2 minutes for Churchill Square, 30 seconds from the bus stop and its a listed property… and most importantly the price is gooooooood.

We are going to sleep on it a bit before we make any decisions, but I would not be at all surpriesed if it was the house we spent the first two years of our marrage in Smile

House Hunt Continues

Wednesday, March 24th 2004 @ 11:09 pm by Catherine

Saddly the flat we went to see wasn’t suitable, it was far too small for what we need since we have two computers to setup since I need mine with all my special equipment.

We have another two flats to look at lined up. We are seeing one of them tomorrow afternoon so hopefully this will be more promising and have more space. We idealy need somewhere which we can have a study since I’m going to have so much work to do for next year with all the coursework and my final year project.

Housy House

Wednesday, March 17th 2004 @ 5:50 pm by Richard

The official Catherine and Richard house hunt has started, Catherine spent some of last week looking for houses on the internet and she has found one that looks promising. I have phoned up the landlady who has agreed to meet me there to show me the house on Friday morning, I am quite aprehensive about it because I don’t like looking round houses on my own. I always miss the obvious things that are going to be a problem.

Other than house news, I am doing much better in terms of health… I am feeling a lot better, still very tired but that is probably because I am not sleeping properly because of the stress of project, dissertation, coursework and lectures. I will try and get a good sleep tonight. Catherine is a little bored because her Father tried to sort out the internet for her on her computer and now it dosn’t work at all, very annoying as it means we don’t get to talk on teamspeak Sad

Feeling Better

Monday, March 15th 2004 @ 12:20 pm by Richard

We are both feeling much better now, our cold went from bad to worse and we both ended up with a mild chest infection. Fortunatly now we are both much better.

We went to visit my parents on the weekend, it was great to see them as I have not been home since announcing our engagement, it was a shame that we couldn’t spend more time with them. My mum goes off to Spring Harvest in three weeks time, which is where Catherine and I first really started to get to know eachother really well, we both want to be there but unfortunatly financial and time limitations stop us.

We also popped into Elim, my home church, for Sunday morning, the worship was great things really seem to be picking up for the worship team, we got prayed for by all of the elders after we had gone up the front and announced our engagement officialy, most people knew but some didn’t. I finaly got the chance to ask Pete Arthur to be my best man and his words were “I have no hesitation in saying yes” which was a relief!

I have a mountain of work to be getting on with so I better get back to it… I must admit that EVE:Online is motivating me to do some more work as it is something to look forward to, although I must be carefult not to play too much, how ever tempting that may be.

We have been Ill

Friday, March 5th 2004 @ 11:21 pm by Catherine

Sorry there have been no posts for a few days both Richard and I have been ill with a throat infection and have hardly been able to do anything. We are feeling a little better but not quite back to full health.

Not much has really happened, I was suposed to meet up with one of my bridesmaids to get her dress today but I couldn’t go into London as I’m too ill for all that traveling. I’ll have to see if I can rearrange it for next week but I don’t know when it will happen with me back and forward to Brighton all the time.

I spoke to my mum and she is planing to make a big thing out of Winnie the Pooh at the reception. I’ve been told basicly what is happening but then have to trust my mum on the rest. To tell the truth I’m a little worried but it should be fine. Richard and I have decided to have all the tables named after characters from Winne the Pooh, which I think is so cool.

Anyways I should go as it’s late and I still need a lot of sleep.

God Bless,

Veils / Rings / Wedding Fairs / Waistcoats

Monday, March 1st 2004 @ 11:17 am by Richard

Hello all, sorry the site has been down for a couple of days, I was tracking down a weird bug and managed to totaly break the site… should all be fixed now, bug and all.

Over the weekend we have been to two wedding fairs, first of all was the National Wedding Fair at London Olimpia, it was huge! We spent a good 2 – 3 hours there, got some fliers and information about mens formal hire and rings. We spotted a couple of veils but nothing quite right.

The second wedding show was at the Brighton Center, in Brighton (Surprisingly), it was a fair bit smaller (and cheeper) than the National Wedding Show but we grabbed a couple of useful bits and pieces.

We have been looking at rings a lot, we want a ring with some kind of two or three banded ring with at least one twist (probably two twists, mobius bands are cool but a little harsh on the fingers). As for the choice of metals we both like White Gold, Welsh Gold and Platinum… anyway here are a couple of pictures we found on http://www.weddingrings-direct.com/

The first picture is welsh gold and normal gold, the second is platinum and welsh gold.

There are a number of other styles that we both like:

Platinum Inlays

Gold Inlays

Anodized Inlays

As my good friend Ross pointed out this one is quite nice too…
