What a day – a complete whirlwind. I even did washing today – what was I thinking about? I didn’t want to start my new life with a pile of dirty washing.
We collected the dresses and we looked beautiful (at least we thought so). The lady in the dress shop hugged us and wished us well. She has 34 other brides getting married tomorrow – marriage is not dead then. The forcast is for good weather.
We had a party in the suite, my brother, sons, nephew and bridesmaid. It was lovely but I seemed to be rushing around making sure they were ok – just like being at home really. There was food, wine, beer and great conversations. My sons saw the hen night photos for the first time and one of them is threatening to use them in his speech tomorrow. He kept shaking his head as if in disbelief – though eventually admitted that they were tasteful. (Must get some up on site soon).
My future parents in law are down the corridor and said I still had time to change my mind. They said tomorrow they will be ‘mom and dad’ to me – at least in law.
So here I am, about to go to bed for the last time as Mrs Gabbidon, no longer carrying the name of my children (at least two of them) they will all be equal now. I will have a different surname to all of them. I will be changing my numerlogy energy for something more dynamic and less egocentric. Will be interesting to see how that pans out.
I am excited now. Almost as excited as my bridesmaid. Just hope I can sleep!!
