Towneley Wedding Fair #2

Hee hee hee.... I guess I was a little cruel really. On Sunday we went to the wedding fair over at Towneley Hall. Mum had asked me to go ages ago, and had asked me to bring Yorkie. I had invited Jacquie too. But of cause the night before I had held my first Ann Summers party, and kicked Yorkie out for the night.



He had come home at 4.30 am, pissed out of his skull and randy as hell, so we didn't actually get to sleep until day break. Because we were meeting Jacquie at my mothers at 10am, we had to set off from my house no later than 9, I set the alarm for 7..... we got out of bed at 8.30 (he was horny again, what can I say?). We got to my mum's at 10.30 and poor jacs had been sat out side in her car for ages... she's arrived early (oops!)



Yorkie - bless his cotton socks - was still rat-arsed! And we'd missed breakfast so I took us into town for a Mc Donalds A) to make up to Jacquie for being so late, and B) to shut Yorkie up for a bit. The later didn't work! he was rambling and grumbling and generally being freaky all day. I swear that Jacs has never seen Yorkie when we was either not drunk or not hung over.... I dread to think what she thinks of him! LOL


Once we got to Towneley mum and her mate / co-worker Richard pounced on us, Richard being his usual flamboyant over the top self (Yorkie just grunted, Jacs looked horrified!) so we made a rapid escape into the fair. It soon became clear that bringing Yorkie was a waist of time.... every time i asked his opion on anything he just shrugged, looked at me with big bleery eyes and said "i-un-ow" which means "I don't know", which really means "please stop asking me, my brain is Jelly!"

Holland Hair

We saw some nice stuff though. Jac's has taken a leaflet from some people who had some lovely little bridesmaid / flowergirl dresses, and I have become smitten with some balloon arrangements that I saw. I spoke to some of the caterers, including the people who have a restraunt over the cafe which is already part of the Towneley Hall set up. They can do a buffet with hot cavery, veggie options and loads of other good stuff so we might be plumming for them. Mum seems keen on them anyway, although we do have numbers for the other people too.



There was practically no one there offering entertainment though. Me and Yorkie want a live band, but Mum keep trying to nudge us into having a DJ instead. I really don't want that!! Must make a point of speaking to Jen about bands, since she and her feller Steph know so many. She might be able to help us find a good one, or I could ask Ray and Sarah if they still have the number for the band they had, who were simply GREAT!



After a while of dragging my half dead hubby to be around with us, me and Jacs desided to take back to my mum's and leave him there so we could come back for the fashion show and watch it in peace!



And the fashion show was pretty good too! The first dress they modelled was the dress that Jacquie has ordered for her wedding! The actual same dress! Very impressed! And I have seen the hair I want too! One of the models had long blonde hair, centre parted at the front, pilled up on top with curls, and a few curled locks round the face and down the back. I liked it straight away and it's the kind of thing I have been thinking about, but didn't think I could pull it off with a veil and tiara.... and then she came out with a veil and tiara! And it looked GREAT!!!! Really really great! So that's what I want!

These are the sort of things I am thinking about, but i have to say I like this last one best... it's simple and romantic looking, and my hair is long enough to carry it off! i just almost SIT on it now!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
