One of those girls

I really didn’t want to be one of those girls that is obsessed with the idea of marriage. I haven’t dreamt of my knight in shining armor and a meringue dress, ever since i was 5, as the films would have us believe, but somehow these days every day without a diamond ring is a little less sparkly than it could be. It is quite embarassing really to go on about marriage, it’s not really the way it should work. Correct me if i’m wrong but ‘beg’ isn’t exactly the most romantic of words and I only want someone to marry me if they want to.

I blame my age. I’m sure that God put an inbuilt marriage sensor, in women, that is activated around the time they hit their twenties, just for a laugh.

So in aid of poor Ben and my dignity I have resolved to try to:

  1. Stop talking about my ring finger feeling lightheaded (even though it does!)
  2. Watching Don’t Tell the Bride, whilst providing a running commentary about what I would want.
  3. Bookmarking wedding venues.

and patiently wait my turn.

Yeah right 😉

    It probably doesn’t help that your Mum is getting married and goes on about it all the time. By the way I need some help to make some shabby chic heart shaped bunting out of cut up love poems. Thanks mum x 😉

    It’s the dresses. I swear that is what it is. The evil dresses make us feel this way.
