Here I sit amidst the daily mess, with a puppy hanging from my ankle, a pile of ironing (yes, Chris, I do iron sometimes!) I've printed my tickets and found my passport. I'm still trying to find things I normally don't use...make-up, tights!! jackets.
Whatever is left not done will have to wait. Geoff won't starve and neither will the dogs.
I've downloaded lots of podcasts onto my ipod, I've charged my phone and camera.
So,tomorrow at the crack of dawn I will be driven to Crete's finest airport at Iraklion by my beloved. I shall board the Agean Airlines flight to Athens, on that flight I might manage a glass of juice and a quick look at Santorini through the window,but, before I've had time to listen to Woman's Hour I'll be deposited onto the ground at Athens. After 2 hours wait, I'll be back in the sky flying with Sleazy Jet to Gatwick. Then, on the Gatwick Express to Victoria, where I'll be met by my son Gareth, yes! and the celebrations begin!! I haven't seen him since last May, he's got a different job and a new partner.
After that, we meet my daughter. She's been in North Wales with fiance, organising the preparations for the Big Do, in Sept. They flew from Saudi last Wed.
I hope someone knows where we're going to sleep because I don't and by this time I'll be thinking of my bed.
After the celebrations tomorrow, Bethan and I have some serious shopping to do, Bethan's organised the whole week.... she has to so we can fit it all in! There's appontments at Jenny Packham's bridal boutique and Sarah Arnett's... I didn't know one had to book appointments to see wedding dresses, but I've been told one does!
There's hair appointments, they've been booked too.
There's a very special meeting with fiance's parents, yikes!! They are flying in from France.
We've emailed and I know they are lovely people so I'm not too scared.
I'm furiously making granny squares for a blanket for a friend, but I can't take them on the plane so I have something to do whilst I wait at Athens, no, I might decide to attack someone with my crochet hook. Must remember to put them in my suitcase instead.
It was his birthday yesterday, he had a pasta maker as a present. He's going to practise while I'm away. He said he's going to do lots of finishing off jobs around the place as Im not going to get under his feet....
And what about these Maverick Stars? See, I've not been sitting about doing nothing but taking photograghs of flowers.
Then we get to these 2, most of the time they're great together. Dewi has a completely different temprement to Jose, he's a little bully. But Jose is learning to get along and ignore his outbursts.
Anyway, I'm off to bed now and I'll repeat to myself that which I've been muttering all day, I shouldn't have gone out and celebrated my husband's birthday so vigourously last night. That way I wouldn't have felt like a wet week all day.................................
I'm in good company anyway! Birthday Boy has been looking rather green as well....
