Mrs G that is awful. I hope your OH recovers well.
We had a funny weekend. OH fitted new autovents on the greenhouse. Thenew ones didnt fit the old holes so it took a lot longer than planned. Then we thought we would go and impart news to Mum as the Hotel is booked for the wedding.
As we were about to go out, there was a youngish girl holding up an older bloke on the wall outside. He seemed to be unable to stand , so we went out to see what was happening. He was drunk and supposedly she was helping him. I asked him where he lived and it was in the estate around the back of us. I asked him for a phone number and he got his wallet out and produced a slip of paper. I went in to google map it, and suddenly there was a commotion. She had grabbed his cash notes and legged it. He was in the middle of the main road on his back and cars screeching to a halt. We got him back on to the pavement, and eventually into the car and drove him the 800yards home. As he lived on his own, we phoned the police to let them know what happened. Told off for phoning 999. Phoned 101 and they said they would send someone round, so we left him with a glass of water and went.
Went up to mums, my sisters were there. they are distinctly underwhelmed with my ideas for a bunch of garden flowers in a vase for table decorations. Also do not like my wedding cake ideas. Also not happy I am not having all the brats as bridesmaids.
They dont have to come.
This morning the drunk has sobered up and brought me a bunch of flowers.
The police had phoned us for a description of the girl, but not been to see him. I'm glad we didn't wait for them to arrive.
OH phoned his brother, who asked why we were bothering to get married after so long. His sister is not answering the phone.
Somehow I think we would have been better off in Las Vegas with the Elvis impersonator.
My friend has found a lovely silk wedding gown, that would not suit my big bust, and has an extra nought on what I wanted to pay for a frock I will wear once.
Maybe Gretna Green is still an option.
