Nearly Out Of Time

It,s Monday morning here in Oz and I,m fast running out of time to get prepared for The Wedding, I never lost any weight and so I,m frightened to try my dress on again and it has not stopped raining yet. So I,m expecting that like a stage play the rehearsals are bad and the performance will be a triumph.


Wednesday my grass is getting cut.
Thursday the marquees are being erected.
Friday the toilets are being delivered and set up by a firm called DUNNIES WITH DIGNITY.
Friday we are also having a fridge trailer delivered to hold all the booze.
Saturday the lights are going up, in the trees and the tables and chairs and decorations are being put into the marquees.
Sunday the big day and hopefully the rain will have stopped and my heart rate will have returned to normal.


Sunday Mum and Dad arrived from Western Australia
Thursday Friends arrive from South Australia
Friday friends and family members arrive from South Australia and Western Australia.
Friday we have invited everyone for a BBQ
Saturday more friends arrive from South Australia
Sunday Wedding


I have completely lost control of my spending at the moment it is disappearing quicker than I can write down why. My carefully laid plans are spinning out of control. And you know what I,m not concerned as I know I will have the full support of you all to pull me back on track, after it is all over.

Finally due to a full work and social calendar, I might be missing in action over the next week, so have a wonderful week and happy saving !!!!


  1. Wow, sounds SO busy but it'll be great! Enjoy your week :-)

  2. Maureen!!!
    I know exactly what you are going through. Take a couple of deep breaths and try to stay calm. Let OTHERS do some of the work, it will make things so much easier. I know about the cash leaving your wallet quicker than you know..the aftermath of my daughter's wedding was a shocker.

    Enjoy the process, enjoy the company, and try to savor the moments. They are precious, albeit stressful.

    Sending lots of hugs your way for a wonderful wedding week! :)

  3. Maureen - you will get back on track - I have faith in you --- just keep taking it day by day & take some deep breaths... don't forget to step back & try to enjoy this wedding!!!!!

    Good luck this week - we are all thinking of you!

  4. Yup - we will be right here waiting for you when you get back and dying to see some pix! All of your preparations and your description sounds like a fairy tale - the culmination of all your work and just remember: whatever happens is what was meant to happen...relax and go with the flow. Talk to you soon!

  5. Good luck with it all, Maureen! It sounds like you have everything under control - hope the rain stops in time. Please share photos and remember to take care of yourself in there!

    See you back here soon!


  7. PS: love the new look of your blog!
