We booked the post wedding meal yesterday with Jo, the delightfully chipper cafe manager rom Osborne House in Llandudno.

Chris' buzz word phrase about the wedding has always been " I don't want any fuss" and so we have not only chosen a venue that has a faint wiff of " gay boudoir" about it but we have settled for a regular cafe restaurant that we know very well...one that isn't known for catering especially for weddings.
It is also our favourite eating place since we came to Wales.
We are taking over the conservatory on the evening of the wedding and so we are limited to the number of guests we can invite ( always a sticking point for weddings I guess) the final list has been made ...I just hope everyone will understand that we would have liked more "bums on seats " but
have a ceiling of how many bodies we can cram into one room!
My " let's have as bigger fuss as possible " idea of a big village hall party where everyone we know will be invited to a " scotch egg and nibbles" extravaganza is on hold until later in the year, which I think is a wise move.....Organising two do s 24 hours apart with a cast of thousands is perhaps too much to ask of me...even though I am a veteran of 7 flower Shows and 4 open allotment days!
A second party in the summer, where my sisters can flex their artistic muscles sounds great fun to me...the wedding day will tick Chris' " less is more" mentality.... It's a great compromise and is one that we are both happy with......
Mind you, it could be said that I have the bigger challenge than sorting out bunting in all this
For the subject of my attire needs seriously addressing !
What the fuck am I going to wear?
I am very conscious here, that I am presently typing this blog, whilst sat in bed, with a pair of bent spectacles on ( one of the dogs sat on them yesterday).
This slovenly type of behaviour drives Chris bananas ( he is fastidiously precise when it comes to personal grooming) and already this morning he has requested that I don't come to the wedding looking like "Baron Hardup"
I suspect I will need a personal dresser
A very patient personal dresser.
