There are lists. There are suppliers to contact. There is music to sign off. There are speeches to prepare. There are clothes to fit. There are vows to write.
Apparently so. We are going for the secular option, so no churches for us. However, it seems vows are something that need to be thought about. Being a cynical old Hector, I hadn't thought about any in case they are so cheesy I fall to the floor weeping with mirth. The promissory equivalent of having "Angels " or "I Will Always Love You" played at your funeral.
All this for what is going to be a very low key affair with mainly family. No children (well, with the exception of The Dark Lady's children, ofcourse!) No dancing and an early night. We are off to New York the following morning about 3 so not sure we'll be propping up the bar until the taxi arrives.
People are asking if I am getting cold feet. Not a bit. Can't wait in fact. It will be a fabulous day. Just how we wanted it. However, even a relatively simple ceremony like ours takes a lot of organisation. How the Beckhams or the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arranged theirs I have no idea. They must have used a party planner. What they both had in common was thrones. Cut the throne and that's a whole heap of trouble sorted.
What has this got to do with the blog title? It's all about constraints of time.
I have been trying to keep up with my flying. Am currently converting from the German made Ikarus C42 (who said the Germans have no sense of humour?) to the Australian Jabiru.
Have had several lessons with instructor Keith in Upminster. All going well but just waiting for a run of decent weather that coincides with our diaries.
Last couple of weeks wind has been too strong. Got an hour in yesterday but still a little gusty to be allowed up by myself.
Dark Lady has said she wants to be my first passenger. Odd but am in no hurry. I am ok flying alone. I have a very strong self preservation instinct so have no desire to make a smoking crater in the earth. However, it seems a lot more serious when there are two of you. Especially someone as precious!
Hmm. "You will always be my precious"
How does that sound for a vow?
