Germs

So just in time for me starting back at work after a week off, I come down with a cold. Brilliant.

Pretty giraffe.

It's pretty cold today, I have the heating on for the first time in months. I am actually looking forward to it getting a bit colder because I have a real fireplace and I'm looking forward to getting a massive roaring fire going.

I don't know if anyone hasn't seen this, but I love the new ikea advert! 100 cats roaming around a store in London ( I think) It's on youtube, along with a 'making of' documentary. But I think it's just so sweet.

London

Had a few days in London during my week off. Dave got us tickets to see Stephen Fry in the Royal Albert Hall which was a lot of fun. I like London a lot but it sometimes get a bit too hectic for my liking. I especially hate the tube. We also went to London Zoo and the Natural History museum which were great. Anyway, here are a few pictures:-

This cup was already here when we stopped for lunch and we were seated right next to it. Since my last name is Cox we found it funny. It was a place called the The Breakfast Club in Soho, they had the best Huevos Rancheros!

My wedding outfit. It looked better without the jacket, but it was a bit chilly.

Now for two really old (well 5 and 6 years old) pictures of me! This first one was taken when I was 20 (on my birthday actually) and it turned out I had my top on backwards on the whole night!

And here is Xenu, when he was a kitten. He had such big ears! The black cat is Arnold, who is a bit antisocial. Very cute though.

The wedding was a lot of fun. It was here :-

Sian came down the aisle to 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and I almost cried! I got a massive lump in my throat and was sat there sniffing for most of the service. She looked so pretty, her dress was lovely (I'll try and post some pictures up soon) but she had trainers on under her dress! That was probably just as well really as the ground was a little muddy of those of us wearing heels kept sinking. Hah.

Had lots of photos taken. Apparently they'll be up on the official website in a few days, so I'll try and get some then too. There was lots of free wine and the food was lovely (I ate a scallop!) and there was a hog roast in the evening with some dancing. Fell into bed around midnight with my feet throbbing. I very rarely wear heels (I'm almost 6ft as it is) and even though they were only about an inch and a half, I was convinced that I was going to fall over when walking around, nevermind dancing, but thankfully all was well.


There was a little bit of a scrum when the bouquet was thrown, I didn't catch it though. I did accidentally manage to hit Tish in the head trying to catch it. Oops.

A bit of a catch up

Finally got the last of my wedding outfit sorted today. A close friend of mine is getting married on Wednesday which is exciting in itself, but as she's the first of my friends to get married it's quite a big thing. It's come around so quickly that I haven't had much time to think about it, but now that it's almost here I'm super excited. I'm not really a girly girl so it's been a bit of a ordeal finding things I like but now I'm sorted. Hooray!

I passed my theory test on Wednesday which pleased me no end. I'm hoping to have at least made one attempt at my practical some time in November as I would have been learning to drive for just over a year by then. I'm not too worried if I pass first time or not, I'm not expecting to, but I'd like to be able to drive now. I can't face another freezing, wet winter stood at the bus stop at 6.30 in the morning.

Birthday tomorrow. I shall be 26. Dave won't give me any hints as to what I have but not much longer to wait. I have already had some cupcakes and a nice bottle of wine bought for me :) as well as some other things that are wrapped that I've hidden away so I'm not tempted to open them early!
