It’s gone awfully quiet here. I hope it’s not the calm before the storm but everything all of a sudden just seems to run too smoothly if you know what I mean.
More surprise parcels have arrived and I should probably start to get them ready for their next trip over to Germany.
The dress has been ordered and will be delivered on Thursday (now that might be a day that ends in tears to be honest…) and the other half has also started to narrow down his search for something to wear.
There have been some minor problems – like not being sure about the venue for the afternoon. There are only four hours to gap though so if we have to we will just celebrate at my brother’s place before heading across to the party venue for the evening.
My brother and his partner in the meantime have confirmed that they are now having new wedding bands. They had been wearing rings for a number of years but weren’t sure if they wanted to go and get some new wedding bands. In addition, everything that has to be sourced is, as far as possible, being sourced locally within the area in which they live rather than falling back on some of the big chains.
It’s just so happens that there is a tiny jewellery workshop across the road from them. They now had a couple of consultations and they are actually making their own wedding bands! Well to a certain point anyway and then the experts take over – I guess they wanted to make sure they would actually slip on on the day. I think it’s a really lovely touch and makes their wedding band so much more special. Can’t wait to see them!
