Putting a ring on it

My dad bought this book for fiance for his birthday earlier this year – Putting a Ring On It – What not to do when attempting to get married by Jarlath Regan. It’s pretty amazing, and self explanatory. Well worth the investment. 
I’m sure Jarlath won’t mind me sharing one of my favorites …

This tasty number can be found about 6 pages deep. A very suiting comic considering a similar situation happened between fiance and my dad a number of years ago {not proposing related though}. I have a sneaking suspicion said story will arise during the speeches on our wedding day. Dad, if you’re reading this, all I have to say is – remember there will be children present. 
Recently, fiance and I have been feeling the full effect of weddingitous. For the past five weekends, we have been non stop organizing appointments and meeting up with people {who were all lovely, for the record}, but I am exhausted. I was supposed to take yesterday off and slip into a delicate coma on my couch, smothered in cats, but that didn’t happen.

Here’s a picture of Juniper to break up my rant a bit. Here she’s ‘helping’ me with some of our most important wedding forms. 

I am fully aware that planning a wedding is quite the time-suck {especially if you don’t eat gold and have the luxury of hiring a wedding co-ordinator}, but this recent surge in wedding stuff is invading my downtime a little too much. Especially considering we still have 6 months to go! But the six month mark tends to be where everything kicks off. I suppose it would be worse if I hadn’t researched the shit out of everything to date. 
To add to the stress, I haven’t crafted in over a month, and that equals a not so happy Alex. All I see is a four day weekend ahead of me, and I have a happy feeling in my chest. I can’t wait to craft the hell out of the Easter weekend. </rant>

    lol those pages were funny,and the similar sounding story sounds freaking funny. Now I just read your comment about the Cath Kidston bag, now thats a bumma that they are out of stock, but given your busy wedding business/planning/meetings, I think you need to go back and re-order it as a reward to look forward too when the wedding buzz gets crazy.

    Juniper looks knackered from all thast form filling too. Enjoy getting ya craft on over Easter, so what are you going to craft.

    I like your thought process, Janine. You're feeding my craft habit 😉

    I think I'll be crafting up some cushions! Sounds boring, but I'm just using some crochet practice patterns to cover two cushions for the spare bedroom. Can't. Wait.
