Recent Purchases

Well everyone, it's been nearly a month since I last posted anything but I'm very excited as I bought my shoes!! I found them on eBay for half the price they were in the shops! (I will add pictures later as the uploader is playing up)
I've also requested veil samples from the Wedding Veil Shop in Diamond White and Diamond White Shimmer. Everything is getting really exciting!

364 Days to go!

Well everyone, it's been a while since I last posted as H2B and I have moved into our summer accommodation and we had no internet for a while. I'm happy to say that now we have a PAYG Vodafone Dongle which is excellent! I was starting to get eBay withdrawal symptoms!
I've stopped working on the farm now which is good because it was sooooooo cold! I'm now working in a local hotel which is good fun and I'm working with some great people. Was thinking about using this hotel as my reception venue but I hate the curtains in the restaurant! (Is that bad?!) so have crossed it off the list and made a definate decision on that front.
We're setting up our joint wedding bank account next week which is VERY exciting! I have a savings account which I've been using but a joint account is really big!
Still haven't been to see the local Minister but will as soon as H2B and I have a decent amount of time off together (he's still working on the farm).
Yesterday was our one year to go day, which H2B actually remembered! Getting really exciting now and it also means that people can't say "It's ages away yet!" because now, IT'S UNDER ONE YEAR AWAY!!!

Well. Finally we got here after weather and flooding delays keeping us on the mainland for an extra day. Didn't really mind that much as it meant one more day with my niece but it did mean that we missed our first day at work. Luckily the bosses' son is a friend of ours and you have to get used to weather delays!
Had a bit of a session on saturday night, visited every pub on the island bar one (several times) and left me with a two day hangover!
We're living in a lovely house ten minutes walk out of town and means that we can't be dragged out for random drinking sessions!

Even better news

We had a phone call this morning saying we're needed to start ASAP! So instead of monday, we are off on friday which means we'll be there in time for a friend's birthday. And Scilly standards, that means we may lose a day or two...

I've had a fruitful evening tonight looking at centrepiece ideas. Hadn't really given it much thought til tonight whilst browsing Project Wedding! I'd imagined I would use flowers or small lanterns but now (Venue willing!) I'd love to do something like this with the candles on different levels.
Of course the islands grow a large variety of flowers which will be in season in march including one I love, the narcissus variety, 'Scilly White' which is so pretty AND would work out very economical! Perhaps I could use the flowers in water under floating candles...
I can see this is one to ponder!

Vintage headbands

As annoying as I find the adverts on Facebook, for once they've turned up something nice! Found a really lovely selection of vintage headbands by Yulia Kunze and here's the website!

Good news!

H2B and I are heading back to Scilly on monday! We've been slobbing it out at Mum's since we got back from New Zealand and now we have some work! H2B has been going out of his mind with boredom so I'm glad he's got something to do. And of course it means that we can start saving for the wedding!
