Do you remember me saying that I was very busy, working on something and that I would eventually blog about it?

Well, this is the post that will reveal all.  Mo and I have been together for 33 years and the day has finally come, that we can make it perfectly legal.

On 20th September 2014, we will become Mrs & Mrs.Finally

It has been a huge job, organizing everything, but we are all set to go now. I hope.

Guess who’s coming, all the way from the US, to share our special day with us?  Junkdrawer Kathy and Dave! We were so surprised when they said they would arrange a holiday in the UK, so they could share the day.  They will be spending three days with us, so that will be a bit of icing on the cake.  Talking about cake. I mustn’t forget to pick that up, before we leave.

We are not getting married where we live, so will travel down the day before the wedding. There will be no room for forgetting anything. No rushing back at the last minute for a forgotten item.

Of course, there will be plenty of photos after and there will be a full length video as soon as I can get it edited. You will all be welcome to view them, if you want to.

I can’t believe that it’s only four weeks away.  These rings have gone on ahead of us. Just in case.

    • Ron. It would have been great if you could have come, but we appreciate that it’s a very, VERY long way to come for a wedding 🙂 We hope to see you one day though.

      • Ron

        I will be there in spirit, my friend!

    • Thank you, Jen. It has caused a lot of family excitement 🙂

  • Wow! This made my day, my week, and my month! Congratulations to you and Mo. This is such wonderful news–thank you for sharing it with all of us!

    • I must admit, that we are getting a lovely response and a few years ago, I would never have posted this 🙂

  • Congratulations! Here’s to a perfect wedding day.

  • Congratulations to the both of you. I’ve just one quiestion…What took you so long? I know it will be a day of love and celebration.

    Have a fabulous day you two. Big hugs to you both. 🙂

    • It was only made legal this year. We decided to get married the day the law was passed 🙂

      • I didn’t know this Babs. I thought England was leaps and bounds ahead of the U.S. I’m so happy for the both of you to finally do what you should have been allowed to from the get go. 🙂

        • We’ve had ‘Civil Partnership’ in the UK for a while, but that still set you aside from the rest of society. We didn’t want that. This is what we wanted 🙂

  • Congratulations! That’s so wonderful!

    • Thank you, Thomas. You’re never too old eh? 😉

  • How absobloominetley marvelous! I love weddings – dance a dance for me. (33 years – my gosh – true love I expect. Just so happy for you.)

  • Tina

    Wow I am blessed to be part of your wedding. So glad I am your big sis (in every way 🙁

    • It will be the best day ever, for all the family to be together again.

  • Congratulations you crazy kids. Happy for you guys. Here’s to the next 33 .

  • Jay of The Depp Effect

    How wonderful! I am only sorry that I won’t be able to come and dance at your wedding!

    And how lovely that Kathy is coming over. That’s really sweet!!

    • That is a shame, Jay, but you will be having a lovely holiday 🙂

  • Dave and I can’t be happier for you and Mo and are so honored that we get to be present for this wonderful and momentous event! And it blows our minds that we saw you just last year and are getting to see you both once again next month, along with meeting your families that we’ve heard so much about. I still have to pinch myself that this is really happening. Can’t wait to see you both again. I know there’ll be screaming and jumping up and down when we roll into town for the big day, but I promise not to make a fool of myself during the actual ceremony. We’ll leave all lunacy for just after. Hee.

    • I know! We couldn’t believe it when you said you would come! There will be plenty of lunacy, don’t worry. You may be a bit nocked off your feet by my zany family, at first, but you will very soon fit in nicely. They are all keen to meet the two of you also 🙂 Once you tell me, you are leaving for your flight, the nerves and excitement will kick in.

  • Congratulations! I’m very happy for you both.

  • Kimberly

    How lovely. I’m so glad that Kathy and Dave will be there, may they carry all our love and good wishes.

    • Thank you so much, Kimberly. We are thrilled they are coming 🙂
