So now the party is over.
For the past few months we've been using the phrase "we'll start after the wedding" when discussing pretty much anything from tidying my wardrobe to losing weight to saving money to changing our lives. Combines the stag do and wedding cost a lot, I don't really want to think about how much as I'd probably faint, but it was worth it. We had a great time, saw some new places, made memories, had an amazing time together, and met some really wonderful people along the way.
Since the wedding Dan has applied for two jobs and changed his GP, we've had another round of decluttering, I've eaten fruit every day (the strawberry harvest is relentless) and have set up a very exciting salad bar in the fridge. I even did yoga yesterday - we shall not talk about the trail of destruction and rabbit distress that caused. The credit card balance has gone, the credit card is in a safe place, all the photographs are backed up and the floors are clear.
I really didn't want to go food shopping on Wednesday, but I'm glad we did, it was a yellow sticker bonanza - bread, fruit, veg, salad, toilet paper, virtually everything on the list was there for the taking. Thank you very much Mr Booth. I also picked up a dvd for 99p from the charity shop, series one of Spooks, we've never seen it but have wanted to for a while. It'll be good for nights when we just want to relax. In a tense way.
The hot weather has made me want to work on the big quilt. I've decided, when the time comes, to use a very light wadding so we can use it year round. I like the weight of something over me when I'm sleeping, even when it's hot. It won't be ready for this winter, maybe it'll be ready by next summer, it's a long way off, but at least I'm working on the cool bit now it's hot. It's a positive time, a time of change and a time to reflect, but most of all, a time to eat strawberries.
