Get me to the church on time...
One of my cousins is getting married, down near London...that's a long way away from us. It will take us about 5 hours to drive down there. As such, and because we want to spend time with family we are going down for 2 nights, it will be a lovely break.
however, as we all know weddings are expensive shindigs,no?
new clothes,new shoes,new bag,petrol,travel lodge,hair cut...etc etc...oh and a present for the couple, obv lol...I promise, I did think about the gift before my clothes..no really I did, stop sniggering!
So the couple have asked for money, towards the honeymoon..yay easy gift! But me being me, I felt I needed to make something as well. so indeed a gift and card have been made. I will share them after the wedding.( end of August)
I chose a new dress and shoes...wasn't able to get hold of either, chose a second,third and fourth dress...bought the second one. Ian is mightily pleased with this choice, not because it looks stunning but because i already have shoes that will go with it. i do however need a bag, which I will make.
In other news..and this does all tie loosely together, my son has moved home. He has been at uni for 4 years doing 2 degrees( definately not a euphemism for romancing 2/3 of a 70's pop group)
anyway, he is home for a while till he finds work and a flat, I have been tidying,sorting,moving stuff around...and here is where it relates to the wedding... in the sorting I came across a beaded necklace kit. I started it a mere 5-6 years ago!! I could not remember what it looked like, and was pleasantly suprised to find it matches the colours of my new dress perfectly.
so I finished it off last night.
it is very pretty, and didn't take long at all to make....well if you don't count the years it has been in a cupboard lol
