Wedding Do’s and Don’ts – Part 1 of x

Our wedding is a now a sweet, great, wide-smile-generating, warmth-creating, heart-bursting, ripe on fondness memory. (I can continue with the adjectives but it goes beyond the scope of this post 🙂 ) Whilst the memories are still fresh and the day and its run up not too engulfed with the glittery covering of nostalgia, I…

Beyond the ‘I Do’

Monday mornings and I are rarely ever on the same page. As I slobber through getting dressed (possibly mismatched), and having a quick breakfast, I resort to my Facebook Newsfeed to regain a connection with the world of consciousness (I know, not very positive). From the very first days of good weather, my newsfeed has…

A non-alcoholic cheer on a Monday

Caught in the throes of Monday blues in imperialistic proportions and a ten-day work backlog which left me without so much as an A4 space on my desk, I turned to the familiar to help me cope. As a retired snail would probably beat our network connection speed, Jango was not an option and so…

Welcoming the Nine

It takes nine months to create a new little human being; there’s also nine months left until Rich and I tie the knot. Just as the first nine months lead to a new beginning, so does the latter. So many things can change in this span of time. In the comfort of where we are…

Xemx in Ivory

I said ‘Yes’, to the Dress! My one-and-a-half-day cram-everything-trip to Malta was successful, and I cannot be happier! The last few weeks before our summer trip home were spent in a mental simulation on how to realistically book all the appointments we had in as few days as possible. The result was three different wedding…

Let me tell you about Love

It’s the fifth of September 2013. By this time next year, I would have walked down the aisle, the last few steps before this journey of preparation transforms itself into a journey of wedded love. Just thinking about the day sets my heart racing and excitement bubbling. There are a million and one things to…

Ivory in Tulip-Land

There is ‘shopping’ and ‘Shopping’. Both are done without Richard. When it comes to the former, we have different views on what shopping is. I like to go often (☺); stroll the shops, buy bits and pieces here and there. He goes once every season; buys a closet-full and then that’s it, no more shopping…
