Big Decisions Week,,,,,

Seems that we're taking the bull by the horns, grasping the nettle, (or as Suzie put it - grab it while the irons hot) - (any more cliche's!!) - but the bottom line (see what I've done?) is we've taken the plunge and come up gasping for breath and have decided to get married.... So set your clocks for 3pm 16th August 2008 at Hertford Caslte.

Now the fun begins - who can we disappoint the most by not inviting them!!!

There's only room enough for 42 for a sitdown reception, so that's us two plus ....?

Top ten bestest things...

Been doing this on WFC forums - here's mine:-


football per se.

warm(not hot)evening, sat in the sun with cold chablis, chilli wraps and Tubular Bells.

Cold Guinness

A really well cooked Chicken Jalfreizi, with Cobra

The prospect of a really long travelling holiday.

Last day of summer term - waving goodbye to all those little ones who have made me extremely tired over the past 32 weeks.

Rioja - well majority of good red wine.

Sat by Loch Ness with a glass of Glenlivet.

Yippee - it's a snowday....

Thank you weatherman - it's our now nearly annual snow-day off.
Lots of expectation by the kids at school all week about how they were going to spend Thursday having fun in the snow, and lo and behold, down it came!! Bit of trepidation waiting for the phone call to say get back into bed, but it came from the luscious Dianne.

So - back to the future - Our Kiwi Land Adventure.

Planning is developing nicely - getting our itinerary up and running, so to speak. Decided to hire a car and sleep in a bed, rather than the camper van we first considered.

So, plan so far:- arrive 23rd, stay in Auckland with Aunt Joan, then immediately decamp (sorry Aunt Joan) and leg it up to Northlands and stay at Paihia for a couple of nights - this is so we can go here for my brthday:-
