... I will be in a hotel room in Norwich.
Why? Because three weeks on Saturday is Carl and Rachel's wedding... It's hard to believe it's so close! They must be extremely excited... Not to mention stressed beyond belief!
I have to say (and, Rachel, I mean this in the nicest way) hearing about everything they're having to get done - not to mention how much it's all costing - is making me very glad that Kelly and I just had a small, quiet wedding. But, hey, if that's what they want... It's their wedding day, after all. :)
I told you last week that I got my clothes for the wedding. The only thing I needed was a hat. I wouldn't normally bother with a hat when dressing for something like a wedding, but I know I'm going to need something to shield my eye on the day, and I don't think a baseball cap would go with my outfit. LOL! Anyway, I happened to mention this to my Grandma, so she very kindly sent me a hat she had that she thought I might like and that she thought - from the descriptions I gave her - would go with my outfit. It arrived yesterday (Wednesday) and Mam and I both think it will do nicely. It'll shield my eye while still looking like it belongs, if you know what I mean. So that'll save me going out and buying a hat. :)
There was another thing I needed though. But this thing wasn't an item of clothing. Nope. It was a suitcase. The small suitcase I had was lent to someone and I never got it back, and the big one is much to big for just one person to use (I could almost fit in it). So Kelly went out and brought me a new set of cases on Tuesday. It's a set with two different sized suitcases and a shoulder bag type thing. The biggest suitcase in the set isn't much smaller than the big one we already had, but the other one is just the right size for me to use for the time I'll be away for the wedding. And the bag is just right for carrying some books and stuff for the car journey. And the whole set only cost £12 (that's a little over $20 US) because the place he went to has a sale on because of it being so close to what they call "the miner's fourtnight" (which is the last week in July and the first week in August, and is the time when most people go away on their Summer holidays). So not bad, I think. :)
I've already packed my clothes for the wedding in the case. I figured it would stop them getting dirty or anything if I put them away. And, what better place to put them than in the suitcase? Especially since - as I've already mentioned - this time in three weeks I'll be in the hotel already.
Kelly's not coming to the wedding. He'd have liked to come (and we'd have liked him to come) but all the people we could trust to have Kero for the amount of time we'd need a puppy-sitter are going to the wedding too. And before anyone suggests it, a kennel is not an option. So Kelly's staying behind with Kero.
I'll be away from Thursday July 31st until Monday August 4th. And, no, I wont have internet access while I'm away. I might see if I can figure out the thing blogger does where you can arrange posts to be published on a future date though so I can post a little post on the day of the wedding to say "congratulations" and all that. But unless I do that there wont be any posts from me for almost a week.
Anyway... I think that's enough of my nonsense for one day. Don't you? LOL!
So... Enjoy whatever's left of your day. :)
