Wohooo! I got my suit!
This week has been pretty big on the wedding front. a few big things have happened to get things moving. Firstly we successfully opened our joint bank account and received our cards and stuff.
We ordered our rings and received confirmation on them so that’s sorted.
Today after helping the Nisco family move house, Gianni who works as a tailor for Hackett, took me to the hackett sale and i gots me a really wonderful suit.
Its all really happening now! Its very very cool!
Right so despite all the votes on here, emails and on facebook I have decided to go with the option B ring.
Every-one’s common theme was – classic and timeless. I think those people think that option B will somehow go out of fashion. To me its not a case of fashion and i dont look at it as being fashionable. Hey i’m gonna be wearing it for the rest of my life. I always wanted something a bit different and that ring is very different. Its the finger its worn on that makes it a wedding ring.
Ta my lovelies for voting. ❗
Ive had a few interesting days this week! Its been quite full on in some ways. All in all a good week though!
- Wednesday Afternoon– I had an interview with a great company up in Hemel Hempstead. The company are really cool, the people seem really ace and the work looks like it would be great. We’ll see what happens with this one. I’d be very tempted by a job here.
- Wednesday eve – I met Ruth’s old Vicar and his wife Mike and Linda. They mean alot to Ruth and they both are very fond of her too so it was great meeting them for us to all meet was fun. They are lovely people.
- Thursday – I got in the car and the clutch had finally gone completely! I had a look under the bonnet and saw that there was no fluid whatsoever in the clutch flui resivoir. A quick call to kev told mewhat to get from Halfords and later that day i succesfully rebled the system and fixed the clutch. Go Me mr Mechanic!
- Thursday Eve – went round to see tom after his return from Saudi. Was great to see him and Mine.
- Today – i broke my website trying to upgrade it but eventually managed to fix it.
- This eve – went to a dinner with ruth for all the local church leaders. This was quite odd as there were many people there who i hd known years ago. It wasnt as bad as i thoyught it might be at all.
Now I tired and should go to bed. I have to go meet Phil in the morning and talk hosting plans! Woooo!

I really have broken the back of wordpress. I’ve been so busy developing other websites that i’ve completely neglected this one. Our work website is now back up online using wordpress check it out. I am also developing taylors.tv and ajguitars.co.uk.
Neither have anything online yet (except taylors original site) but its exciting times knowing that i’ve got this stuff nailed.
So here i am in Waterloo trainstation at 3:07am. Later this morning the last eurostar train will leave waterloo as from today onwards it will be operating out of St.Pancreas station. Why am i here? Well i am baby sitting a video wall for the morning, well untill about 7am when the others return. I was given the unenviabke task of staying here all night. Oh the joy. Thankfully Willis left his laptop here for me to play about on to keep me from suicide.
Its been along time since i did any videowall work. infact the last one was in Manchester last september of last year. It was a couple of weeks after that when i did the Alpha course and i met Ruth. Its a year. Thats quite amazing. I have now known ruth for a year and I will be marrying her which is the coolest thing ever.
In the past i thought i knew what love was. Really. I’ve had relationshipsthat i considered having a future with. I had thought of marrige before but i feel like an idiot when i remember the mindset i was in then. The thing with ruth is that she loves me completely. She knows that i’m an arrogant idiot sometimes. That i’m proud. I’m pigheaded, I’m lazy and my career prospects dont loook great and yet she loves me inspite of these things. In fact she goes one further and she loves those things anyway. To love someone so completely that you love them warts and all is such an amazing thing. It is truly awe inspiring. I feel like such a lucky git! I AM a lucky GIT.
I thank God sincerly for this. Without him life sucked. Now it RAWKS! If you dont know him you should say hello – he’s really quite cool you know.
So – am getting married to the boy of this site…and being a wife-in-training is kinda wierd. How to juggle the new dynamic of relationships with your parents, with his parents, with your girlfriends…with him – kind of gets my brain going all squishy sometimes.
Engagement is mental – one of the biggest life changes you are ever going to experience topped only by perhaps the prospect of being a parent…and I’m worried of being a wedding bore, I’m worried about the budget for the biggest party I’ll ever throw, I’m worried everyone is judging me for what I say or don’t say, do or think…. Plus I have this awesome fiance who has an opinion on every little detail of the wedding – which makes for daily compromises and thrashing out of stuff.
This all makes it sound like a nightmare – honestly it isn’t – there are so many brilliant things about it. I am so ridiculously excited and happy sometimes I think I might just explode as I can’t contain it – but it is an emotional rollercoaster ride!
We are a third of the way through now – March 8th starting to loom bigger and bigger on the horizon. So close and yet somehow still so far!
This journey towards one-ness is crazy – but I believe the Big Man is preparing us pretty well and holding us together when things get mad.
I’m grateful to Him…and to the boy who puts up with me when I am hormonal, grumpy, petulant and selfish – no actually he more than puts up with me – he encourages and loves me like no one else ever has. Irishmark – you rock dewd!!
