Off to get married



This will be my last post for a little bit as I'm off on Friday to get married on Tuesday. So here I'm sharing a few things that have been given to me over the last week or so. Firstly, a beautiful card from Geraldine, a longtime reader of this blog - too bad I didn't have time to persuade K to buy a top hat. I love the sparkles on my wedding dress and the pink flowers!


When I got into work today, I could barely see my desk for balloons, banner and confetti on the chair. Not quite sure what the readers thought, but a lovely send off. My colleagues also gave me a beautiful cardboard cakestand and some cupcake cases and bunting which I am sure will feature on the blog soon!



The centrepiece of the workplace celebrations was my fantastic knitted wedding cake, knitted for me by Alison, one of my colleagues. Isn't it AMAZING? I'm only sorry that my photo doesn't quite do it justice. We spotted it in the Knitted Cakes book that I wrote about last year. What a work of art - I am so impressed by it. I MUST learn to knit properly...



Big thanks to all of the blog readers who have left messages on my wedding reading post, listened to me moan on twitter, sent e-cards, and even a magazine to read on the plane!
