It's exciting...

Its all happening now with the wedding plans, the invitations are now in the process of being made except we are having a bit of difficulty in getting ribbon to match the bridesmaids colour....who chose purple eh!!!

Went to see Margaret and Fiona re the flowers last Friday night and i am so excited because it all worked out the way I wanted and my favourite flower is available in September so I will have Gerberras in some of my flower arrangements. I am sure that my flowers will be beautiful and add more delight to our special day.

I also phoned tonight about the cake and its going to be made by Moira. She made my nephews Christening cake and it was very tasty so I have no doubt it will be eaten up very quickly at our night reception.

When I am writing this blog I am probably not making any sense as I am talking to my good friend Clare
and she is making me laugh so much. I thank you Clare for always making me laugh you truely are a star. love ya mate. its not be best photo sorry and as if i would say anything to wind u up ha ha .

This is annoying

I am not so good at this blog thing as I wanted to continue after my picture but I could not get it to let me anyway I will work it out.

So in conclusion to my painting post Thank you to my future mother and father in law, Ross and my dad for what they have done so far for giving up time an efforts and for what they will do in the next few weeks order for me to sell my flat and in preparation for our new house.

Been to see Gavin in his school show tonight which was excellent but it is now late and mt eyes are very tired so I will blog on it soon


I must say that painting is not my forte but I need to learn so I thought I would give it a go in my flat you know the day is drawing nearer that Ross and I will buy our house and in order to that I need to sell my flat first. IT does not need that much done to it but I do need to freshen a few walls and tidy up at few cracks but hey it will be worth it.

On Saturday I had arranged that late afternoon the Pentney clan minus Joanne would come over and we could get started. Me in my inpatient ways decided that I would give a start to the small hallway between all the rooms. I got out the paint tec and climbed the ladder and was getting on great and really pleased with my efforts when I don't really know what happened but I found myself falling and landedon the tins of paint at my feet. Luckily I never had the pot of paint in my hand as I probably would have had it all over me. I think I got up quicker than I went down and to be honest that was quick. I did not know whether to laugh or cry. I could feel my leg beginining to bruise and oh my word what a bruise it is. I have to say it getting more purple by the day and still very sore. I learned a few things on Saturday and one of which was to be more patient and when climbing a ladder wear shoes !!!!

Good times...

I have been meaning to blog for a few days now and the time just has not allowed me to. I am now back at work and feel like I have never been off.

When I was on annual leave last week I feel that I got so much done and wee bits and bobs sorted for the wedding. It was really nice as on Tuesday when I got to spend time with Olwyn and got to chat about a few things that have been on my mind and she was able to talk about a few things that had been on her mind. It was just like old times again no men no children as much as I love the Mathie and Ross days. Thanks for spending that time with me and for listening, even when I am not always right you are always there for me. you are a true friend. Not sure if you remember giving me this card but it has really helped me especially in recent times so thanks.

might need you to show me how to rotate it though doh!

Just a thought .....

I know this is probably not the best post in the world but it was just something I randomly thought about as I ate my dinner yesterday. I love sprouts they are so delicious and one of my favourite vegetables, but they are also very wierd. They have so many layers to them and the juicier the better.

Now I know I am probably wierd liking them because I know many people think they are disgusting but I think they are delicious what about you?

Well so much has happened since I last blogged but I must say I am now on holiday from work for a week and I am glad. I do love my job but we all need holidays and time off. I have a busy week ahead however I will enjoy catching up with things and people. I do intend to take time for myself too.

Today is mothers day and well as most of you know my mum died in October 1999 and I really miss her very much. I would just like to pay tribute to my mum today and thank her for being a loving mum to me. Although mum was not always able to do the physical things with me she always made sure I could and that there was someone else there to support me or my brother and she was there to hear all about it when we got home. I'm sure there were some days that she would not be feeling like listening to me go on and on but she did because she loved me unconditionally.

There have been many people in my life that over the years have been a mother figure to me and I would like to thank them all too, not naming names as I would not like to miss any out but you know who you are.

I'm sure my mum will be loooking down on me today and that she is with me in everything I am doing in preparation for our wedding. I have said before I know that she would just love Ross and I am sure he would have loved her too.

So all in all I love you mum and all my other 'mums' and thank you all for everything.
