This time next month I'll be Mrs M..........

Do you ever have one of those days, well this is my day.

  1. Went to take my car from the garage and my resident foxes must have triggered the alarm and run the battery down.
  2. My sourdough was too wet and plopped on the baking tray (tasty but no height)
  3. I have gained 1 1/2 pounds while trying to diet for my wedding and that is after having cycled or run and sometimes both every day since Sunday :-( and eaten enough veg and fruit to supply enough methane gas to run a local power station.
  4. My sisters have managed to hijack my planned hen night and turn it into a possible nightmare, and now I have to re-think what I am going to do or if I want to do anything now.
  5. My credit card was frozen after signing up as an Elite member for the Runkeeper app and I had the embarrassment of digging in my bag for another card to use so I didn't have to leave a trolly of food behind.
  6. While ripping the skin off a chicken leg I managed to unhinge my gel nail
  7. I am trying hard to finish a load of work before I leave for my pre-wedding vacation on the 3rd May and more work keeps getting in the way of my progress on outstanding jobs
  8. I feel so stressed today that I haven't done any sewing tonight just in case my stress causes me to make too many mistakes. 
  9. I am stressed because I haven't done any sewing last night or tonight and still have loads to do.

The only redeeming thing to come out of today was a text message from my daughter saying do you realise that this time next month you will be Mrs M...........  I have to say this fills me with both fear and joy.  Joy because I'll be the happiest lady alive when my D Mike and I get married, and fear that I have a fraction over 4 weeks to get everything done before the wedding.............................

I hope your day has been better than mine, hopefully tomorrow will be much better.

Catch you later.


  1. I am so sorry you have had such a bad day.. I hate those days..
    Sending a big ole hug and prayers, that things will smooth out , you'll get all that sewing done.
    Just think about Being Mrs.M and try not to worry about it.. I promise you.. It will all come out fine.

  2. I feel for you, but I know everything is going to be alright! You´ll see. Love and kisses

  3. Sounds like you need a glass of wine, a massage, and a nap. And you need to rope in your co-workers to help at work. Remember, people who don't sew (most people) won't be looking at every little seam so don't try to make everything perfect.

  4. Oh poor you! It sounds like you need a nice relaxing massage or like I'm doing right now, a nice glass of wine with your feet up.
    Hope tomorrow is better. God bless!

  5. These things do happen and all at once. Put your feet up, have a glass of wine and relax. You will get to the finish line with lots of time to spare.

  6. Sending my best for a better day tomorrow and then some!

  7. Sounds like a truly stressful, dog of a day. Just remember that the only really important thing in all of this is that you and the man you love (and who loves you) are making your vows. While perfection may be the ideal, the love is what is important. And that will always be there. Take a deep breath and focus on what is most important to you. The rest will take care of itself.

  8. I second all the good advice above. I have, over the past few weeks, read up on your incredible sewing and otherwise journey. I am so impressed with what you manage to do, I can't manage half of it at roughly the same age as you. Deep breath and relax, then everything will come out well. Sending good thoughts over from the continent. Anita from Basel

  9. So funny :-) How is Mike holding up?

  10. I sort of have two messages: poor you for all the stress and then wonderful you for being happy. You'll sort it - I have complete faith.

  11. Oh dear, feeling for you. Good idea not to sew when you feel like this. Good luck with all the incredible dresses that you are making.

  12. Just breathe. The weight is probably just from stress. The just breathe is actually such a beneficial thing. Take about 20 minutes, lay flat on your back, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Visualize good things coming in and all the bad going out and away from you. It's something I do on a regular basis and it helps. A lot!

  13. I am thinking of you right now, and imagining how you must have little flutters of anxiety from time to time. Breathe, and let go of what you cannot control. It will be okay-I promise.

  14. There is something about hen nights which bring out the worst in people! Have a good day and tomorrow you can get on.
