Back in Blog

Good golly, over a month’s hiatus from blogging – hmm, not very committed or dedicated of me! I do have some excuses though.

Foremost of these is that I have been feeling a bit disconnected from the whole wedding planning thing. We had a big rush of excitement with the engagement and then the trip to Italy and the plan coming together and then ... not much! I read blogs and save some pictures of things we might like but somehow it seems so far off and unreal. Kindly people
ask, with an expectant smile, how the wedding plans are coming along and I haven’t really much to say other than “great!” which is probably as much as most people want to hear anyway.

The other excuse is that I got burned – and not in a metaphorical way but in a right-arm-looking-like-giant-bubble-wrap way. Eeeek!
I was of course very brave about the whol
e thing (!?) but it did make me feel ugly and scratchy and a bit miserable as well as very stupid for letting it happen in the first place.
However, as the saying goes, every cloud has its silver lining or rather, in this case, a flowery one. I decided that as essential to the healing process as antiseptic pain relief cream were also some beautiful scarves to cover my bandages. Liberty’s was just across the road and has a bin full of hankies for about £6 each on the haberdashery floor. So, relishing the excuse to go into one of my favourite places in London, I treated myself to some beautiful cotton handkerchiefs in their lovely prints – so joyful and spring like and just what the doctor [should have] ordered!

And this is how I convinced myself that our bridesmaids would look lovely Liberty print sundress – now I just need to convince them!
