Doctor’s Orders

Monday, January 8th 2007 @ 12:02 pm by Catherine

Well, I’ve finally got round to bloging again. Christmas went well and I didn’t end up too tired although, I’m definitely getting an air bed next christmas if Richard and I end up staying over night at my grandma’s since the futon mattres is really uncomfortable to sleep on.

My resolution for the new year is to follow my doctor’s orders better and try and get some exercise to help my joints. I’m managing to do a little walking but still have not done any swimming. This is partly due to the local swimming pool being closed for refurbishment, it’s been closed for 14 weeks and is opening again at the begining of Febuary, so it shows how much I’ve been trying to go swimming. So just to get a new costume and I’ll be set to start again.

It seems we still don’t have anybody reading our site so I’ll just have to email some people to let them know we are up and running again.

Google gone christmasy

Friday, December 22nd 2006 @ 10:37 am by Catherine

Well its that time of year when we see the christmas logos from google again have a look so far they look quite nice and they should be putting a new ones up over the season.

Google Doodle

As for christmas, Richard and I are going to my grandma’s over chrismas day and boxing day and then we will be spending the next weekend with Richard’s family. So it all works out well for no fighting as to when we will be going where which is always good.

I’ve still got a couple of presents to buy dispite starting the christmas shopping in november and ordering a lot of stuff online, call me mad but I’m going ito brighton tomorrow morning to get the last bits, fortunately we don’t need to go into Churchill Square for any of it as it is always mad in there.

We have just recived a very unusural present of 2 sheep, they will be going to families in Ethiopa. This has been done through The Alternative Gift Catalogue one of a number of charities doing similar things to make a difference for families in the developing world.

I’d better be going now since I’ve still got lots of wrapping to do.

On the Move and Site Revamp

Saturday, October 28th 2006 @ 10:06 am by Catherine

I guess I really should have updated this blog much sooner, sadly it’s been over a year since the last post. I hope that it will be not so long until I post again but only time will tell.

I’ve been quite unwell since last autum which has left me very tired and able to do very little, now I’m coping a little better I’m finaly gettting back to the things I enjoy.

Richard and I will hopefully be moving before Christmas if not soon after to a house in Peacehaven which is to the east of Brighton on the coast. It’s going to be strange not living in the centre of Brighton but it will be nice to have a little more space.

Once we move we are planing to revamp the site, but as yet we haven’t decided what exactly we want to do. If there is anybody who still reads our blog, we would love to hear of any ideas you have.


Seasons Greetings

Wednesday, December 29th 2004 @ 4:12 pm by Catherine

Firstly I should appoligise for the lack of posts in recent months, as you can imagine both of us have been very busy, we are still settling into our new flat and Richard’s job has been very demanding of his time.

We have be juggling with visiting both sides of the family in the last few days it is so much more complicated when you have to fit in two families.

We have received some money from people able to claim from their credit card companies since the Gift Registry is in administration. We are going shopping tomorrow to see what we can get in the sales to make the money go further.

And finally we would just like to congratulate our best man Pete who has recently got engaged and is getting married in the summer.

Gift Registry Update

Friday, October 15th 2004 @ 3:34 pm by Catherine

I’m sure that most of you who are reading the site have heard by now about the gift registry since it has been all accros the media. Richard and I are still waiting for the letter from the administrators before we can act further for guests who have paid money to them and need to claim.

Richard and I will be sending out letters at the begining of next week, if you want to know more before then please email us and we will do our best to answer your questions.


10 Days To Go

Wednesday, August 25th 2004 @ 2:45 pm by Catherine

Well it’s only ten days to go until the big day. Both Richard and I have a lot to do, there are still a lot of things to organise. I now know why people have wedding planers…

I’m just finalising the order of service, now I’ve just got to get it to print off corectly so I get all the pages in the right order, very much easier said than done.

We have our rehearsal in a week’s time so we may have some idea as to what we are doing on the day, I’m sure I’ll forget something and mess up the few lines that I have to say.

I’m staying with my parents at the moment, trying to get my room packed up so I can move, I’m very glad that most of my things stayed in the boxes from January when I moved back home. I’ve not got anywhere to put the boxes that I’m packing up though. The livingroom where the boxes would normally go looks like a larder with all the food and things needed for the catering as my mum is organising the reception. I feel before long I’ll be climbing over boxes just to get into my room here. It won’t be for long though since I’m back down to Brighton at the end of the week. I hope my dad can understand the system of which boxes and bags I desperately need or I’ll discover I have hardly any clothes and the extra duvet or books that can wait.

Oh and I’ve just remembered that I’ve got to pack for honeymoon. I hate packing and I’ve only done one box.

This will problably be my last post before the wedding with everything going to be so busy. I will see if Pete can do an entry after the wedding before we get back to let people know how it went.

For now take care and God bless
Love Catherine

Gift Lists, Invites and Utter madness

Friday, July 23rd 2004 @ 3:45 pm by Catherine

Well prompted by Pete (our best man) I am writing for all you addoring fans out there.

Things the last few months have been utterly crazy. Richard has been doing exams and then three days later started his job as ICT support assistant. Not long after that Richard moved into the lovely flat that we will be living in together come september.

With all of that we have hardly stopped. I’ve now got my shoes for the wedding so my outfit is sorted out, but I still have to decide on my hair and make up. Richard has his suit but still needs to sort out the rest of his outfit.

We have finially got most of the invites out for the wedding after a number of different problems with printing, directions for the church, addresses and actually getting the time to put them altoghther.

I want to also apoligise for the lack of gifts on our gift list, this is due to the shear volume of lists that the company are having to deal with and should be sorted out over the next few days.

We hope to keep writing the blog as much as possible but with so many different things happening and myself comuting regulary between my parents house in london and brighton to see richard I’m not sure how often that will be. I might recruit the our best man Pete and our Chief Bride’s Maid Kyla to help us out by doing some blog enteries.

Must go now since Richard is visiting me for the weekend and his room still needs to be sorted out.

I’ve got my veil

Sunday, May 16th 2004 @ 3:51 pm by Catherine

I have finialy got my veil after months of huntting for one. Richard and I were out walking one day when he was visiting me and we found a small wedding shop. So my mum and I went back this week and found a lovely veil which covers my hair without having to get it trimed. It’s quite plain with a little bit of decoration round the edge with chain stich.

This week the plan is to get my boquet and the bridesmaids boquets sorted out, we need to get the colour matched to the dresses for the silk flowers we are getting.

The planing is getting quite stressful but once the invitations are out next month it should be easier with less complicated things to get done.

My leg has healed up and not causing me any trouble now which is good with so much running around to do.

I must be off to deal with some more orgainising. Rolling Eyes

Sorry it’s been a long time since either Richard and I have posted anything on the site, Richard has been very busy doing his coursework and preparing for his exams. I on the other hand have had a lot of problems with my computer which resulted in me doing a complete reinstal only to find out that the hard drive is failling.

Richard is still on his job hut and I am looking at a change of direction in my carear. I want to learn sign language and hopefully get to the level of interpreter. I want to use this with working with deaf children and university students and within the church where deaf people are so often left out.
