Personal Grooming and other pre wedding stuff


Now, This may not surprise any of you, when I say that I am not known for my fastidious personal grooming habits. Now, let's get something clear here......I bathe daily and never wear dirty undies two days in a row, so I don't smell like a two week old half eaten pork pie!, but I have to concede that the choice of Chris' array of facial moisturisers do leave me somewhat perplexed after I've given my chops a quick rub down with a soapy flannel.
Today, I going to make an effort.
I have my face pack organised. My hair conditioner ready ( conditioner! What the f*~k is conditioner?) and intend to give my nether regions a good scrub with something abrasive a bit later!
Gawd all this intensive grooming lark!
Its a bleeding palaver! But I am seriously convinced that I shall look neat and presentable before the sun sets tomorrow night.
I understand there are some sceptics out there... ( next door neighbour John did give me a short lecture about not kneeling down in my wedding pants this morning).....put for once in my life I shall look the part

Chris has left me with the dogs and Albert this morning with strict instructions not to eat anything fluid in 24 hours. It may have been easier and cleaner for someone to pass a nasogastric tube on me....

YP's wedding card....the wag!

Today we've been showered with gifts and cards and best wishes, and its been ever so slightly
overwhelming and rather humbling. Thank you bloggers, friends , villagers and family alike......
I am now off for a relaxing soak in the tub!.....but before I go..I just need to thank Sarah for her telegram....she has won the telegram competition

  5. We are sure you will clean up nicely, however, maybe you would want to hold off that bath until a few hours before the event. You might also want to stay away from Winnie's drool.

    You will be in all our thoughts tomorrow.

  9. You'll be fine as long as you make sure that there's no 'Four Weddings' situation, and that both rings are brought along.

    Will be thinking of you both on the morrow. (Already am!) Here's wishing supreme happiness for the event and into the future.

  54. Break a leg, John and Chris! This is your performance of a lifetime!

    ReplyDelete
  55. ... and they lived happily ever after!

    Do have to ask about this bit, though: "I bathe daily and never wear dirty undies two days in a row". So you only wear dirty underwear one day? Erm - Recipe for a happy marriage: Laugh daily and ditch the dirty underwear!

    In all seriousness, though, I wish you both heaps and mounds and whole worlds of joy!

  78. John, just be thankful you're not a woman and obliged to undergo a truly draconian personal grooming regime for weeks before the big day!

    I confidently predict it'll be glitz and glamour all the way and no sign of tantrums or tiaras.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I am a soap-and-water kind of guy, too, so I can completely identify. It's a good thing, too, because Dave loves all his "products," and if BOTH of us were like that we'd be broke!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Have a truly wonderful, joyfilled day and may God bless you both with a life full of love, laughter and everything else you might wish for.

  82. Wonderful card from Mr. Pudding. I will be thinking about the two of you today. Maybe I should make some Scotch Eggs for dinner? I have a recipe. What wine pairs well with the things?

    Happy long married life to you both.

  83. How amazing and wonderful for the two of you. From these two men on the other side of the ocean, we wish you both all the best and nothing but continued happiness and love.
