Still don't have the official pictures while the bride and groom are honeymooning. This picture is from my brother.
Yes, I'm the dumpy person in blue looking as if she doesn't like having her picture taken. Or wearing high heels.
Two exchanges from yesterday:
1. I was at the mini-supermarket, standing still in the middle of the aisle, when a severe lady looked at me as if wondering what I was doing.
Me: I'm just trying to think what I came in for.
Severe lady [severely]: You should have a list.
Me [humbly]: "Yes, you're right."
Severe lady: "I don't have a list either."
2. I'd just come back from the dry cleaners with Daughter 2's wedding dress and was still weak at the knees at what it had cost to clean. (I did remember that Daughter 1's dress was expensive, but not that expensive.) I climbed out of the car and said hello to my neighbour, whose daughter has just got engaged.
Neighbour [over hedge, seeing me carrying dress]: You still doing wedding things?
Me: Do you know how much it costs to get a wedding dress cleaned? £75!!!!!!
Neighour [blenching - it's not often that you get the chance to type that word]: I was thinking we might buy a dress for about that much.
Me: [laughs uproariously but with a touch of pity].
Neighbour: So that's just the small change, is it?
Kind of. Still, she did look lovely.
