        Roo - i ended up getting the 1yr old an alphbet plane toy out of ELC. It's for 9mths + so should be ok and sings the alphabet, lol

         

        No luck with the wedding undies, but i did get some nice bits out of ann summers and la senza in the sale! ;o)

         

        Is it terrible that although we are having a destination wedding nothing is really beachy about our wedding? Not the colours or flowers or invites or OOT bags. They are all pink or brown!! The only thing that is destination like is the starfish favours, lol.... oh well it's our day and our taste i suppose! Bringing the UK to Mexico, hee hee x

                hi nicy,

                i know what you mean. its like you spend so much time and effort and everything in your life revolves around it then one day there will be no more planning or saving up for it or researching etc! i am sure that the day will be so good and obviously its a holiday too plus a party when we get back so there wont be that feeling of 'what do we do now!' thats what i am hoping for anyway but i have heard of people gettin the post wedding blues. x

                  Lyndsey : Yeah, thats what my work mate said today "post wedding blues" :-(
                  Hopefully we will have a reception in June, maybe July time at the lastest so if we can decide if we can afford one then at least that will keep me occupied!! Haha!!
                   

                  Have you booked your party at home?

                      girls dont talk to me about post wedding blues i dunno if its cause ive felt so shit with the flu for the last ten days but im sooooo down im sure if i sat at the gps and groizzled hed sign me off.We are living in a house we cant really afford that no of us love trapped by a mortgage we are tyed into till 2012/13 so therefore we have very little cash and although it feels good that we are looking to clear our debts this year we dont hve anything to look forward to theres no babies coming in this house at almosast 45 im waiting for grandchildren lol.We went out this afternoon looking at paint my eldest son is going to india for 5 weeks on tuesday and we are going to do some decorating.We stopped and went for a meal and after two glasses of wine there i sat with tears rolling off my chin i am so fed up and the only way i can explain it is i have nothing to look forward to we havnt got a holiday booked this year cos we dont want to put anything on a credit card.Im hoping we can visit my mum and dad in ireland in the summer and then go to new york for nov/dec/.I guess what im trying to say is i think there will be post wedding blues and i think cos m stilll feeling below par the emotion that is bubbling under the service rose its uglyhead.We/i have never been so broke and in 2013  things improve for us finacially with endowments but for now life is shittt!!! SSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOO If there is anyway you  can plan something for later in the year do it

                       

                      Michelle glad you found something in the ELC
