05/01/2013 - Start as we mean to go on

Saturday! Yay! Weekend! Time to do nothing, stay in bed all day maybe? Go into town and do some shopping in the remainder of the sale?!

Not us. No, today was the day that we picked up our black A4 ringbinder and opened it for the first time in ages. The folder containsall the documents to do with our wedding.

Yes, it's wedding planning time. See what we have to do and do it! After all, we get married THIS YEAR! EEEKS! 245 days to be exact. Extra eeks!

Yup. The page is blank.

Instead of sitting at home and being distracted by the various blogs I follow, or Paul reading his football sites, we 'spoilt' ourselves and went out!

Have you been to a cafe with a better name, EVER?!
We walked a little way to a place called Oomoo (always loved the name) for a drink and some serious plannage.

The only downside to our excusion is that we're being good for the next few weeks and cutting out as much sugar as we can (except natural ones) so WE COULDN'T EAT CAKE! Oomoo's cakes are amazing. They do a Malteser cheesecake which is

Anyway, I still got to have some excitement, in the form of 'Scouse Breakfast Tea'...which I'm pretty sure is English Breakfast tea, but it makes it sound more fun, so let's go with it!

How cute is that tea strainer?!
 We got a lot done. Plus we worked out all the stuff we haven't done yet and how scary that is! We also had our first spanner in the works, but I won't go into detail as to what that is just get.

I spent the evening creating our wedding website. The first one we tried was not at all easy to use. It was really disappointing. The second one we used, and it's pretty common among the people that we know who have got married recently, but hey - if it ain't broke, why try to fix it?!

Very pleased with our day's work. It wasn't easy but it's better that we bit the bullet and did it, right?

I think it's the problem with having quite a while to plan the wedding. By the wedding, we will have had 21 months, give or take a day or two, between getting engaged and our wedding day. We did a little bit, then nothing, then a bit more, then nothing...the momentum has been sporadic. Probably not ideal.

I'll keep you posted! :)
