Ah, girls i spent the first 4 years hating OH's family, all i do now is spend as little time with them as possible, easier for me cos we're in spain, but then harder when they come out to visit! I've made it clear that they're his family, not mine, and that any interference is not welcome (when i had jacob they knew everything about everything and never hesitated to tell me i was bringing him up wrong, FFIL even pushed me away from the pram once, with a "shift, i'm pushing". yeah, i went mental.....

 

anyway, not entirely sure how 2 weeks in mexico will go, but it's my wedding and i will not let anyone ruin it.

 

my dad has an excellent saying

 

"SAY NOTHING, THINK BOLLOCKS"

 

i use this a lot when they're doing my head in.

 

by the way, they try to show equality to my kids, but if money is given out, MY daughter mia gets about half of what OUR son Jacob gets........

I haven't heard back from the job interview i went for on Monday although they did say they would phone either way!! I have tried to contact them to get feed back but no answer, at this point i am assuming i was unlucky this time and havent got the job, i am totally gutted and a little down because i am getting totally desperate now and wedding plans are limited due to lack of finances we have some money saved for the wedding so we can book when dates become available but thats it!!!!!

Oh girls it is so horribe when families dont get on especially when kids etc are involved. In sept when Scarlett starts pre-school i am defo going to try to get to xmas before i have to see her again. Then it will be my hen in April (which i begrudge asking her too) then Mexico. After Mexico that's it for me!! I'm done. Life is hard enough as it is without having someone around you that makes you feel uncomfortalble and gets you down... !! I've been with Dan 8yrs this month and MIL made a big thing last yr about becoming Harrisons grandmother and bought him cards etc with grandson on it.. since the row she doesnt give him the time of day. Abit how she treats me.... at easter and now i know this sounds petty but it really got to me. She bought Scarlett a big thortons egg with her name on it and Harrison got a bog standard £1 egg. Now she never would have done that before. I was so mad!! FI did notice to but didn't say anything. She is very childish to take it out on my son but you know what i think let her cos he'll see her for what she is and when he's older he'll also want nothing to do with her and i'm sure Scarlett will notice it too...so she's not doing herself any favours!! As the saying goes....give them enough rope they will hang themselves..... so be my guest luv!!! You get on with it!

 

Sorry to bring such a downer to the thread. I will try and be happier from now on, ha ha.. always so good to have a vent though ;o) x

 

Sorry your feeling down girls, i really hope things work out on the job front etc..x.

 

Nicy - so glad your now in contact with your WC and it's all feeling real now :o) and you got your bits too, lovely x

Its not too late for you to receive a 'yes' - i know how it feels waiting for that response.  When I got made redundant I didnt get paid for the month I worked and as yet we are all still fighting for redundancy so I do know how hard it is to plan a wedding with limited funds.  I have had no money coming in since the end of May.  Thank goodness I start my new job on Monday.  I would say though its suprising what you can do with a little money - just dont mention the word 'wedding' ebay and the internet are a great source and local vendors - as if you pull at their heart strings you do get some discounts - trust me I did it all!!! x

Wrapped the handles of my ceremony fans today with all the ribbon I had left over from other DIY projects I have done.  Our colour scheme is turquoise and gold.  Sorry about the blurry picture I dont have a 'working' camera at the moment I had to use my phone. 

 

I have realised with my DIY attempts - LESS is definately more :-)

Oh man that sounds awful - wtf is wrong with her taking it out on Harrison. I have no idea what to suggest as its an awful situation esp with her coming to Mexico with you guys. Can your other half not speak to her? (sorry if i missed anything I had to mark all as read to get it to work for new posts otherwise it kept starting me at the beginning!)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
