Wedding news!

We had a stroke of luck on Saturday when walking through the park - there by the bridge over the lake was a stunning Burgundy classic car. I hurried on over to ask for a business card, and amazingly they had one free on the 31st May, so we've booked it - its the one at the front of the photo - a 1939 Buick.
And this is where we'll be spending our honeymoon - we can only manage 2 nights so we'll have to make the most of it. Can't wait! Will be wearing my gorgeous new Hobbs purple silk dress that I got in John Lewis, as you have to dress for dinner.

Just need some shiny super high black heels to go with it! I love spending money!

Instant love!

Love this stamp! Managed to get it pre-release from Red Velvet Art. Never manage to kit the kits in time, but at least I managed this little beauty. It was waiting for me when I got back from my college tutorial today.

The tutorial went well. I was a little disappointed that I only got 68% for my essay (2 marks off a distinction, but still a merit), but the lecturer seems pleased with my progress, and said she expects me to get distinctions in future essays.

Went to Bristol on Tuesday and John got a beautiful Charlie Allen suit, and I've got the most fantastic purple silk evening dress for the honeymoon - so excited! We tried to book the honeymoon this afternoon, but just missed the reservations lady so will try again tomorrow. Did quite a lot of the Christmas shopping too.

That Was Hard!

I enjoyed the reading I did for the English Legal System essay on the judiciary - maybe that was why I found it so hard to keep to the word limit (went over by more than 100% but the lecturer said its not as important for this first on). Managed to give it in on Thursday, and fingers crossed I've done a fairly good job - I tried sooo hard! In contrast, the Contract Law assessment was an oral - we had to pretend to be a solicitor and advise a client (one of our other teachers) while our Contract teacher took notes. And I was TERRIFIED! Shook like a leaf - honestly, I've never felt so scared. Was convinced that I'd really let myself down - don't find Contract easy at the best of times, but when my brain just won't engage its nigh on impossible. But I got my result on Thursday - and somehow I managed to scrape a Distinction!!! And I do mean scrape - the minimum for a distinction is 70% which was what I got!

Haven't managed much scrapping though - well any actually! Have had some photos from Photobox arrive today though - only ordered them yesterday!

The wedding is booked for the 31st May 2008 - not long now! We're trying to decide what time to have the service. Its a very hard decision. We're thinking of late morning, then having a light lunch buffet for the reception. Just need to think if it'll leave us time to get ready. Well for me to get ready - don't think it'll take John very long, but I have hair and make up at the hairdressers which'll take about 1 1/2 hours, getting dressed etc, etc. And it'll take a while to get to the church.

We're going to Cribbs Causeway next week (study week!) to do the Christmas Shopping, and get John's wedding suit from John Lewis. Hopefully it'll be a really nice day - will be a nice change for us to spend some time just the two of us!
