Jos and Gareth's wedding.

Yesterday we had Jos and Gareth's wedding. It was one of the nicest weddings I have ever been to and I am eternally greatful for being allowed to be a part of their day. The wedding ceremony was personal and loving. The reception was small and informal with the room filled with great friends and closest family. I cannot express how wonderful it was to be a part of their special day as their bridesmaid. Today I plan on doing little or nothing... Maybe a trip to the movies is in order! Here is a picture of the day. I will try to upload all of them to flickr soon.

Sometimes you just want to say enough already!

Life gets too hectic at times. You feel as though you have 10 balls all in the air. Little by little one ball gets dropped, then another and it all starts to fall apart.

I have a terrible habit of "Let me just do it myself, at least I know it is done to my standards then". I don't delegate well. I don't communicate well. It is my lot and it is who I am.

The first ball to fall recently is my housekeeping, then came socialising, then my diet, followed closely by exercising and then my general ability to get up in the morning. All the important things keep happening, but the little things start to fall off. Unfortunately it is these little things that make my life fun and worth living.

So tomorrow I have a day off work to try my hardest to get everything back on track again. I aim to clean the house, do some weights and get in some shopping I have been meaning to do for a while - like groceries! Fingers crossed everything will be back on track soon.

On the upside my eggplants and watermelons are growing like crazy. Everything else is being devoured by baby grasshoppers. Note to self - add "make a chilli spray" to list of things to do.
