speaking of wedding, today was supposed to be the day when i went to try on the dress i wanted for my wedding. unfortunately, the shop i chose was in the process of closing it's bridal section so all dresses were in the sale, which meant the one i liked had gone. there's still a chance that if i ring another store i'll find it, so thats my next route. i did try a few others on, one of which had a beautiful skirt with embroidered roses..i have tried to find a picture but as it was in the sale, im having no luck!

received a supply of kittyrobot buttons today:
got marcus to do a mini photo shoot of me in my beautiful new dress..
on sunday im going with my mum and sister to bristol to look for a wedding dress :) ive seen one i realllllllly like so fingers crossed!
we do have one worry here though. its remortgage time, and being as house prices have fallen recently, there's a chance we're in negative equity. if this is the case, the amount we need for our mortgage would actually be more than the 90% the lender we have chosen is willing to lend us. so we're keeping our fingers crossed we get our chosen mortgage, otherwise we have to stick where we are which is £200 a month more than we currently pay and the rate is a tracker so could go up and up.

it was pretty scary though; we have a new lady who is supposed to be a senior nurse who doesnt seem to have a clue about pretty important things...like NEVER leaving a ventilated patient unattended to wander off to the other side of the room (in case they move and dislodge their breathing tube for sarters), NEVER flush adrenaline down a line as the tiniest amount can have a massive effect on blood pressure. pretty big things you're told on day 1 in ITU. scary scary.
on a brighter note, igot my dvd of amelie today.
check out the american crafts blog for new CHA sneaks ...

in other news, Save Polaroid tshirts are available here to buy.
then of course i had to go into Primark, everyone's favourite bargain, but probably not very ethical, clothes shop, where i found this dress. technically i dont need anymore dresses, but this 'swooshed' when i turned and made me feel pretty. £15!
those eagle eyed Sex and the City girls will have spotted it's likeness to this number...

also, i love how inspiring this photo by elise blaha is, espcially as i need to start a florida album at some point.
on another note, the birds have finally left our loft. hooray!!! this sad little eggshell greeted me friday morning. so now i have to contact the pest control people to get them to fill up the holes and make our loft unappealing for them next year. if we're here next year (so so desperate to move).

id like to share a few photos for those who are interested:
here's a couple shot, at universal studios..
this is the Dudley Doright Ripsaw ride. The. Best. Water Ride. amazing. you get soooo wet!!
for 12 hours, i was princess stephanie, and everyone said Happy Birthday to me, and i got given a carrot cake and a sprinkles and chocolate dipped marshmallow thing. for free. because of the magic badge.
marcus bought tshirts from the children's sections in the Vans shop and in Walmart (totally cool batman lego t).
me, fighting with a ginourmous candy apple, covered in caramel, chocolate and patriotic sprinkles. safe to say, i only managed half of it.
monster dragonfly. literally 3 inches long.
we also saw the shuttle Discovery take of 40 miles away in Cape Canaveral, ate far too many Subways and Dennys, bought our wedding rings for bargain prices, saw Iron Man and Indiana Jones at the cinema, tried Taco Bell, marcus shared a changing room with a cockroach which hissed at him, saw some amazing lightening storms....and tonnes more. i bought loads of clothes, loads of sweets for other people, some converse, scrapping stuff and DVDs and had a panic attack on a ride that wasnt even really scary and luckily had a doctor sat next to me stopping me from passing out!! phew.
