Well girlies the excitement is mounting...........

Firstly i gotta say youve been busy each and every one of you.Janapana your coming home glad it all come together quickly for you.

Theres deffo some witchy mothers in the pack right now.Did you make the top to small for the MIL from hell Michelle id of been very tempted lol

Sorry about the job Nicky but hey ho the time may not be right just yet.At least you dont have the pressure of a new job and the stress that goes with that and maybe you might get a small buzz that your shitty job is payng you 2k more (does that make sense)

Michelle i lovvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeee your airport tops but for the untalented diyers i  got all of our airport T-shirts from good ol vista.I ordered 16 in total even Chloe whos 7 today/yesterday!!! wore the smallest and i  belted it with a hot pink belt and she wore it a a dress.I had printed im off to Paul and Marias Greek wedding with a bride and groom in our colours and on the back i put everyones name.They were a huge hit and we all looked so good together everyone wore one from age 7 to 74.I ordered them as and when the postage was free etc. Idid do the bride to be and flower girl bridesmaids ones however chloes didnt stand up too well but it served its purpose i guess..We didnt do OTT bag we did the t shirts paid for the transport to the airport for everyone, did pashminas for the girls raffia fans and jelly bean cones.No one expected anything so was thrilled with what they got.Infact Katie Ryans girlfriend was wearing her pashmina on Monday evening.

I cant believe how the time has flown by and for most of you its weeks now not months

Im undecieded about what to do with my dress at the mo there is a dress agency in our town that i called into today and she said shes doing a wedding fair this weekend and would sell it fo £400 and give me £200.Now id be happy to get tghe two for it but am not sure id want to give her £200 for putting it in the boot of her car then hanging it on a rail.Am i being daft i could use the £200 to put in a fund pot to buy a ring to sit aalongside my wedding band.

Are any of you doing the paper lanterns i soooo wish id done them or the ones that float on the water.Hwkin bazaar had the lantern bags today i noticed id of got them aswell lol

I so wish i was still planning : (

Hey hooo ill carry on with the bathroom makeover just completed sams bedroom once the bathrooms done th living room is nxt.

For most of you girls it will be getting a dog or making babies lol my days are over .....................

Happy planning keep the piccies coming ..............................

AND FOR ALL THE GIRLS WITH MIL FROM HELL KILL UM WITH KINDNESS WHEN SOMEONES WATCHING AND GIVE THEM THE TWO FINGER SALUTE WHEN THERE NOT XXXXX

My first MIL was from hell and still today 20 years after my divorce i wouldnt pee on her if she was on fire.If she stepped/fell of the kerb as i was driving past im not even sure id swerve to miss her the old fire breathing dragon. hahahaa

I know if it were me and i was going on holiday for a friends wedding i would love it. Bringing everyone together... lol lol lol....well i did get MIL from HELL a size 16 but they do come up on the small side so chances are it might be tight and being white not to flattering...OOOPPPsss what a shame!! hee hee....what can she say though??? NISH!!! If she dont wear it, it will only make her look out of order!

 

My friend coming has apparently made us all black hen night vests for the hen in mexico and i know they are small and MIL is not one to show her arms or wear a vest... can't wait to see her face!!! OOOOOO meow! Oh i dont care. The old witch deserves it!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
