Monday Catch Up #2

Yet another busy week and weekend has passed by. Where is all the time going? It'll be November before I know it and I'll be getting married. Eep!

Talking of weddings, Rich and I attended the wedding of a close friend on Saturday. Emma and I were fantastic mates during our first year at Uni, but then I dropped out, and didn't really see each other again after that as I was unable to go back and visit. Fast forward to when I'd just moved to Leeds and I spotted on Facebook that Emma had also just moved too. We sent a couple of messages back and forth then met up one Saturday morning and quickly became great friends again.

Emma was still with Will, who she met in the first week of first year of uni (how sweet!) and they were engaged so we've spent many an hour talking all things weddings. It was so exciting for their big day to finally be here, and I admit, as Emma walked down the aisle I did get a bit teary eyed at seeing her look so beautiful. The venue was stunning, and the whole day was utterly perfect. I hope my wedding goes so well in November! Rich and I got a lot of inspiration and may be "borrowing" a few ideas from their wedding if they say it's okay. The small touches such as a basket of useful things in the bathroom, and the wedding photos of family members dotted around really added something to the day.

I wore my Monsoon dress (again - ssh!) and managed to last in heels until after the wedding breakfast, which I was very proud of. For the evening reception they had a Ceilidh, which was so much fun. If you've never heard of it before it's basically like a barn dance where there is a caller who tells you what steps to do. Definitely my kind of dancing!

At the end of the evening we made our way back to our B&B and sank into our very cosy bed, only to be woken up at 4:30am by the resident cockerel. I was not impressed, and was very sleepy for the rest of the day on Sunday, with the coffee at breakfast only making it so I was awake enough to drive home.

On the way home I got to visit the Angel of the North, which made me very excited. I was a huge fan of Byker Grove as a kid, and have always wanted to see the Angel of the North and visit Newcastle. Unfortunately we weren't awake enough for a visit to Newcastle, but I got to see the Angel herself and take some pictures.

Once we arrived back at home I was totally shattered and spent a lot of the afternoon and evening having a nap on the sofa and not doing any of the housework I was supposed to. Oops.

This week looks to be another busy one, with gym sessions and a concert to go to, but the weekend is looking like I might actually get to sort out the house and hopefully get some more blogging done.

How was your weekend?
