Happy Anniversary

Today Paul and I have been married for eleven years! And as Paul says, he probably would have been given less time for murder (hee hee)!
So many funny little things happened on our wedding day – I forgot to put my stockings on, so my mum had to climb under my huge wedding dress with its gazillion layers of netting and put them on for me. (also, peeing is definitely a two woman job in a wedding dress).
Paul sent his best man all the way back to our home so that he could pick up Paul’s mobile phone – not sure who he was planning to answer the phone to, mid vows.
I got the train of my wedding dress stuck in the car door and ended up with a big black greasy blob on my white dress – yikes!
I panicked for weeks leading up to the big day that I would trip over on my walk down the aisle – I needn’t have bothered worrying, because I did trip anyway – oops! Thankfully it wasn’t a massive tumble and I recovered it nicely.
A random person took a photograph of Paul and I, which makes me wonder – where is that photo now?
My Grandad threw confetti over us before the photographer was ready and he was fuming (hee hee) but we thought it was hilarious, and it is actually my favourite photo of the entire day (pictured). We were at the point where smiling for photos was becoming a little forced, so it was perfect timing.
Had we married the week after, as we originally planned, it would have snowed at our winter wedding ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
We forgot to cut the cake before we went off on our mini honeymoon – my dad text me to let me know and we had to cut it when we got back.
Despite the little hiccups it was a fantastic day, and just proves that there is no point worrying, if something is going to go wrong, it will go wrong – it’s all about enjoying the moment and not stressing about the small things.
Here’s to another eleven years – unless he kills me first ๐Ÿ™‚ hahahaha ๐Ÿ™‚

Lost (still lost)

I was quite excited at the prospect of leaving copies of my short story ‘Lost’ out and about again for strangers to find and pass on, but as we are once again in lockdown this is just not possible. So, I need to think of some new ways to get this little book back on it’s travels, and see how far we can get it to go around the world ๐Ÿ™‚
Maybe I could hold a competition, or a free giveaway?
I have quite a few of these little cuties to send travelling, so I definitely need to do something.

I have never haunted a funeral home before, but needs must. You see I am looking for my dead Fiancรฉ and I have been unsuccessful for the last seven months. I know that he is dead, because I watched him die.
I didn’t kill him if that’s what you’re thinking. No, I barely recall our deaths, all I know is that it involved a motorway, telegraph pole and a lorry load of sheep.
I had naturally assumed that we would be reunited in death, and yet we were not. This is a problem I cannot seem to rectify. I have looked in cemeteries, hospitals, pubs and all along that blasted motorway but I cannot find him. So now I figure that funeral homes are my best bet, and dead people are just what I need.

Have you ever read a story that made you want to wrap your arms around the person you’re in love with and never let go? For me, that was this tender and touching story by Emma L. Beal. I read it in one sitting and both laughed and cried. Read this for a reminder of how precious love and life are ๐Ÿ’• I found Emma L. Beal’s story fun because I had never considered what it would be like to be a ghost and the little difficulties you might encounter while moving around. She also did a nice job sprinkling bits of humour throughout Lost ๐Ÿ˜Š

Didn’t think a story about ghosts/dead people could end up being so cute! Lovely story behind this, a very heart warming book, cleverly thought of and makes you smile throughout!
