Hi. Happy New Year. Welcome to 2010.
This is the fist minute I have had to sit down and write something since my last blog entry. New Year was even more hectic, but in a different way, than Christmas and I am only just recovering from it. Hogmany (December 31st) was a quiet affair, David and I spent it together, on our own which was a first in all the time we have been together. We started to watch TV, to bring in the New Year along with the chimes of Big Ben or the fireworks at Edinburgh Castle but the TV was so rubbish that we were in bed for just after midnight.
New Year's Day started out quietly but got manic just after lunchtime. Always wanting to better my hostessing skills I had invited 11 people for dinner so began my cooking prep shortly after lunchtime. The meal went well and by the time everyone left at 11:30 I was ready for bed. The next day was back to work as usual and it has been the same since then.
In amongst all the working I have done I have also been arranging more of the wedding. I have called the woman that is going to do my dress alterations and have booked my appointment to have my first fitting so that we can start to get the alterations done. The dress needs shortened quite considerably and the bust section of the corset needs quite a huge amount taken out of it. I go for the appointment at the start of February so not long to go now before that starts. I have also finally sent off for my passport but that is an ongoing saga so will discuss that later. I have also contacted the local registry office to see about the Certificate of No Impediment that David and I both need to get first before any of our other documentation. Now we are trying to find a venue for our reception on our return.
So this is where I am up to just now. Now just trying to get everything back into some sort of order where I can start to score things off my to do list, one at a time.
