I am only taking off 2 days before the wedding and then a week and half after, so 2 weeks in total. Hopefully 2 days before will be enough. I think I'm fairly organised so shouldn't be too many last minute things to do. I hope!

So I went to Drs about my Eczema and she tells me its pityriasis rosea and asks me so have you been around anyone with chicken Pox?

And Im well not Chicken Pox but my FH is just recovering from Shingles...

Bingo..

The Dr was all its not serious it goes away by itself within a couple of months!

Bloody Shingles!!!!

Thats just it she said within a couple of months from the most recent sore - and Im still waking up with new ones everyday! And the wedding is just over 7 weeks away! - the sores are all down my right arm, neck back and decollatage - and at the alter the right side is the one that is photographed!!

The Dr gave me Erythromycin she said its going to make me really nauscous and it might not do anything at all but thats all they have in terms of treatment -

Im going to go home and start on the lysine and crazy magnesium shakes that I made FH have with his shingles!! Which seemed to help alot!

Oh well atleast we will have matching sores on the wedding day :roll:

Really all I can do is just laugh!

Where is Saturday again? I thought it was Rhodes. Is it in Syd?

Argh, so I'm trying to book my own hen's, the Tea Room is booked the day I want. I don't think I can be bothered booking a hen's party and organising it myself, really.

BM1= works long hours
BM2= is young (20) and can barely handle tafe
BM3= is currently recovering from two broken legs.

I can't be stuffed organising my own stupid hens party!

Vent over

Yippee! 100+ pages! So when do we get the part 2??

You girls have been very busy on here!

I was initially only going to take 3 days off before the wedding and 3 days of the following week, but I've been rethinking and might try for a full week prior and a week afterwards. Need more time in the lead-up I think because I have to bake all our gingerbreads for the favours, plus we need to travel to Darwin. As for the post-wedding time, I'm just lazy and over work so the more time I can have away from it the better! Haha

Sophieej - your wishing well is a really nice idea. I hope you can get it to work out okay!

Turbo - can't wait to see the wedding shop pics. Seriously, it would be Murphy's Law if you ended up wearing your first dress. I will be seeing my dress in 2 weeks for the first time since January so if I don't like it I might become your first customer!

Rang our venue coordinator today to confirm some stuff we discussed about 2 weeks ago, only to find out she no longer works there! I was just thinking WTF, I only spoke to her not long ago, could she have not mentioned this?! Anyway the new chick sounds nice on the phone but is still finding her feet. She said she is reviewing their wedding packages so I hope she throws some good stuff in there and doesn't up the price of stuff or change things so we end up with less in our package.

I also FINALLY received my shoes from Duosheng (after 3 and a half weeks!) and they are the wrong size and style! :roll: Just my bloody luck.

I also find myself making 3 more invites for people A) a couple I didn't invite initially but decided I probably should have, and B) people FH decided he really wants there, and a guy who he thinks we sent a save the date to (and I KNOW I didn't) but said he has told he can come anyway. FAR OUT! The last one esp annoys me. This bloke won't even come but I'm still wasting my time making him a stinkin invite after I thought I'd finished with all that stuff. Uggghhh. Vent OVER!
