      oh god i wish i was still planning my wedding! i wouldn´t want to actually have to go through it again, but i really enjoyed the shopping and planning.

       

      so, nicy or roo, (can't remember which, it was pages ago!) to answer your question, the reason we are moving home is mainly financial. i know the uk is in recession. or just out of it, whichever, but spain is really on it´s arse at the moment. there are bars and shops closing down left right and centre, and being english, even when you speak spanish, your job opportunities are limited. we get paid 6 or 7⬠per hour, usually with no contract, therefore no social security. when we come back we´re going to be eating into out savings at first, but at least there´s the prospect of things getting better, if we stay here for another ten years things will still be the same out here, you can´t even get a job in a supermarket chain, all the jobs go to the spanish, which is as it should be. the final straw for me really was when i got a summary from the tax office at the end of last year, to tell me how many days i´d earned towards my pension...... 5 months and 6 days. you have to earn 15 years to get a pension, and i´ve been here 7 years and earned 5 months????? at this rate i´ll be dead before i can retire!!!!!

       

      so now i´m buried in the ofsted website and rightmove, and sheffield education website, trying to work out where we go from here...... it´s quite exciting really and it will be so great to be back with all my friends, and go shopping, (oh yeah, and working.....right....!) and shopping........

       

      i say give coco bongos a go, i think it´s abou 50$, just get as shitfaced as you can in the first two bars, and you´ll enjoy cocos more. plus it´s a long walk between se±or frogs and cocos, so wear shoes you can walk in!

       

      any of you remember jodie p from this thread? she hasn´t been on for ages, she got married in the riu caribe in cancun the day before me. we were on the same flight going and coming, it was great to actually meet someone from this thread! her photos were done by juan navarro and they´re gorgeous, although i like mine just as much and we just used the resort company...... maybe i´m a tiny bit biased though!

       

      loving the shoes btw lynsdey

          I've been DIY'ing it again today. We went to Egypt two yrs ago with my BM's and families and i did the little girls a pink t-shirt and painted their names on the back well i decided to do them for mexico too. So i've got them all a pink vest top and putting their names on them in hot pink diamontes. Only done one as a bit time consuming but it looks OK so far so good. 4 more to go! lol

            I think her wedding was maybe not quite so eventful, but i know she was stressed and hot and there was the odd thing that didn´t go according to plan, but like roo said, there´s bound to be some things.......

            i´m still feeling sorry for myself over the whole wedding-ring-lost incident, but i suppose it´s partly holiday blues too! honestly though, they lost my wedding ring? for fucks sake. wouldn´t that be the one thing you´d hold on to for dear life? i need to not watch my wedding dvd for a while, until i´ve regained my sense of humour, cos i watch it and feel like crying!

             

            ooh dear, don´t mind me..... i´ve been on the waggon since, erm, thursday. i probably need a drink!
