It's not quite a bucket list

Haha. I know my mum will be involved. So does he. I think he's recently realised I can stand up to her when I feel strongly about something, so there's hope.

All I can say is that if I were in his position, I would take the money and run.

It seems like most moms only really care about 2 things when it comes to the wedding, the first being who's on the guestlist and the second being their daughter's dress choice.

Everything else is a battle worth fighting (if you feel strongly about something) and you'll end up winning most of the time. It will be 'your day' after all.

Back OT, this year I just want to get my girl home safely and get through the first couple months of sleeplessness without punching anyone in the throat.
Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

My mom was great. I told her what I wanted and she was relieved that I wanted a small simple outdoor wedding. Including a catered brunch, it was about $2000 total.
Gotta love 'em.

Lol I had to argue with my mum about a lot of things. I wanted paper plates and wooden cutlery so there would be no washing up and it could all go in the composter afterwards. It was an informal garden bbq at my parents house. I won on a lot of things because my Dad talked my mum around. She found it hard to let go of her traditional ideas of what a wedding ought to be. I went down the aisle to dubstep, the first dance was reggae, and Justin DJ'd a breakbeat set at the evening garden party, so we were a little way off from traditional Smile

Hmmm, I want to pass my course and go to the higher level. I would love to move out but I will have to wait till I pass my higher leveled coursen i'd get another dog.

I'm hoping I'll be able to go to Hawaii in May, but it depends on how frugal I can be in the meantime. Between vet bills and dog toys I'm not doing very well so far. If I can't make that trip then DH and I will probably take the dogs on a road trip to Vancouver island in August.

There's not much I want, since we moved into our dream house, 6 months ago. Although our finances are stretched, we're living simply, and G's doing lots of extra work, most of which is paid- a little!
I'd quite like to do the cruise to Norway which we had to cancel when G had his accident last spring- but I look at little Sally, who's now in her 12th year, and I have this feeling I shouldn't leave her for long.....her muzzle is grey now, and I think her eyesight's not too keen; certainly she has to be close to us- so close that I lost an important email when her paw clonked my mouse....and her other paw turned on the telly with the remote.
Perhaps we, too, will be better off just taking a ferry trip to Amsterdam, for 2 or 3 nights. Lots of my friends are heading to Australia or South Africa, as they do most years.....I'd lost touch with my sister in Oz, but we've made contact again, so going to Darwin would probably be on my list.
Jo, Cumbria.
