25 days to go....finished sorting all the gifts last night, wrapped them all nicely and put them in bags with personalised labels on - we had to buy 2 last minute gifts as we now have another reader and my brother is doing a speech instead of my dad.Work is manic & very stressful, C is being useless, I'm not sleeping well (not helped by a toddler who gets up at the crack of dawn each day!) and I'm trying very hard not to be stressed but I am failing miserably. Took my little boy for a haircut last weekend and the barber butchered it so his beautiful curls are all gone and now he'll have an uneven short back and sides in our pictures - I actually cried.I really want to get the flower order done so it's out of the way but you can only order a week or so in advance. We have completely run out of room in our house, I really want to get everything out and get it sorted into boxes but we just don't have any more room to put anything, and we don't have anyone who we can ask to store stuff as they all either don't have space, or smoke or have pets.I really thought I'd be excited but I actually just feel really empty, down and alone with it all. People keep making offers of help but then when you try to pin them down they don't really mean it. C has had precious little to do but he hasn't done any of it, he only ordered a shirt this week after me relentlessly nagging him for over a month, and most were out of stock in his size so I'm praying they fit when they arrive as we could only find 2 in his size. His only other jobs are to speak to the best men about them doing the music/GoPro and to send the reading to his friend and he's done none of it, and instead of helping me wants to go out with his mates AGAIN this weekend (he's been on 2 3-day stag weekends in the last month alone). We keep arguing as I'm stressed up to my eyeballs and he's doing his usual "so laidback he's horizontal, don't worry it will be alright" routine. He doesn't realise it's always alright because I get stuff done while he's sitting on his arse and procrastinating. Am rapidly going off the idea of marrying the lazy bastard.I do suffer from mild anxiety and depression and the stress has just triggered it I think, I'm desperately downing St.John's Wort to try to cheer myself up. Sorry for the moan, I'll probably delete this later but it makes me feel better when I write things down.
He looks very smart! The suit looks like a great fit and I love the shoes!
The new series of Peaky Blinders starts at 9pm on our wedding day!!! Nightmare!!
@MrsCToBee I've just finished reading your planning thread - there was a lot to read and I did consider just waiting for a report thread but my son is refusing to sleep so that's helped me find the time to read it! I am absolutely in awe of you for how much DIY you've taken on with a small child. I'm going for the complete opposite approach. I love all of your DIY pieces, I'm just amazed you found the time. I love the little Zelda cake toppers you got, they're so subtle but a really sweet nod to C's geeky side. I also absolutely love your Gran's ring, it's so unusual and it's stunning. I laughed so much at parts of your thread, like when C was away and you decided to change your hair colour, at the sheer number of shoes and veils that you bought and especially at the guest that ordered bruschetta without tomatoes - surely that's just toast!! Weirdly me and h2b had discussed using the Jurassic Park theme as my entrance music. It is a lovely piece of music but I said we would need to get a glass of water to start shaking when I was on my way in.It must be so exciting and terrifying now you're down to the last few weeks. I really hope everything goes smoothly on the day and you have the most amazing time!
