Todays list, get on with it boys and girls.. by now you should really only need to do half the stuff:rotfl: today is study day for me and I WILL be studying. I have renewed vigour.....However, I have walls to paint too, and its quite stress relieving so I will study a bit and then paint a wall, study a bit more and then paint another wall....

Have a good day you lot!

    Morning....arrrgghhh, I'm supposed to be packing but I hate it. Most of the stuff is done, it's just clothes and last minute things.

    Good luck with the painting and studying Sammy! Hope everyone else has a good day.

    Thanks Cat - yeuch, insomnia is horrible isn't it. Do you have it all the time, or just occasionally? I found mine was much worse while I was pregnant, which was annoying because I was so flipping tired all the time.

    Morning everyone,
    Have a nice holiday snaggles!

    Got some replies from yesterday as I couldn't get back on here until Midnight and then didn't see any point in replying on yesterdays thread...so I made a list!! :)

    Lucifa - Thanks for the suggestion for alternative to a wedding planner book. I'm going to go to Paperchase and get my Sis some really nice stationery to use for her planning (although no doubt I'll end up doing most of it).

    Ooooo, I might get her a subscription to a magazine, anyone know any good wedding ones?

    Sammy - Thanks for pointing out the wedding planning software from last MSE e-mail. I had overlooked that so I'm going to send it to my Sis and get her to try it out.

    Maz (and anyone else who's interested) - Dinner on Friday was F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!! Boyf had no idea whatsoever where we were going. Made him meet me at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge and he bought me a cocktail in there as we had half hour to spare and only had to walk 5 minutes down the road. I had a cosmopolitan and he had a Mojito (bill came to £30!!).
    So, I told him we were going for dinner as he was complaining that he was hungry and he then tried to guess but didn't get it! He still didn't know when we turned up at the Berkley Hotel where Petrus is so it was a nice surprise, especially when I told him that Marcus Wareing was Head Chef as part of Gordon Ramsay's group.
    I gave Boyf the choice of Al A Carte or the Tasting Menu and he opted for Tasting Menu......8 (small) courses spaced over the night. I can describe each course if you like, but it will take a while....they were all amazing though. Menu cost £90 each.
    On top we had a bottle of 2006 (white) Chateauneuf de Pape wine @ £65 and two bottles of still mineral water at £4 a bottle (what?!?!). Including service, the whole bill was £285, which was actually under budget as I'd put £300 to one side for dinner, so I was quite pleased.
    After dinner we went to a Casino in Picadilly. Took out £50 to gamble with and came away with £50, so just had a couple of hours fun (was up to £100 in my hand at one point :( ). Boyf broke even too, but he also bought most drinks in there so had to win back more than I did ;)

    Boyf said it was the best night out we'd had in all the time we've been together and he was dead impressed, so Yay Me! :):)

    Sorry will stop waffle as have now written an essay!

    Helloooooo!
    I'm going to have a boring day today-need to sort kids toys out and sling a load of them and clean the fridge-since I left the maritial home on May it's all gone a bit 'blokey' if you know what I mean-Scott keeps it clean and tidy but things like the frige and cooker (inside) are yucky-and the washing machine STINKS!? What's that all about? We need groceries so I am thinking about doing a Tescos run but I know it will be an expensive one as we let everything run down because of hols *sigh* Should do a meal plan shouldn't I?

    Btw, Len text me, he's in his new accomodation and nervous about starting new job today but ok otherwise, he sends his regards to everyone!

    Have a good time in Endinburgh Suze-I'd love to go there!

    And SNAGS!!!! What will I do wothout you for 2 whole weeks?? I hope you get reception (?) with your mobile up there in GOd's Country!

    Boris that sounds wonderful:T

    A tad expensive though:eek: but it was a special evening for you both.
    But these things take time, I know that I'm, the most inept that ever stepped.
