Check the clock on the right-hand panel.
That’s right, there’s only 16 days until my wedding. Today I am finding it hard to write, not because of my health, but because I am bursting with excitement! If you’re a regular reader then you’ll know that me and my beau are paying for our wedding almost entirely alone, and that the afore mentioned beau hasn’t been able to work much over the summer. In addition, my DLA is up for re-assessment, but it is taking me months to work through the form, so we don’t have that as an income either. The reason I am giving you this somewhat tedious update on my finances to explain the reason why Paul and I have changed our honeymoon plans. We would have liked to have to Paris, but we don’t have enough money so we have a new plan.
We have been lucky enough to have been given two nights at a very swanky hotel for the evening of and after our wedding. Then, we will travel to a friend’s house to stay as long as we like while they are away. And, if the weather is nice, we hope to go camping for a couple of nights too. We are both so flipping excited about this alternative honeymoon.
We are leaving Cardiff soon to go back to my parent’s house for the wedding so in the next two to three days we have to pack for our honeymoon. This involves a bit of planning. We don’t want to make too many plans, I’m not going to make a rigid schedule, especially because part of the reason why the new honeymoon plan is so great is because it allows us to actually relax.
On the other hand, we also don’t want to just end up doing what we would do at home either, so we need to think up some activities so that we can make the most of our time together with no distractions. We’ll be staying out of the city, in a small coastal town so I already have romantic walks and picnics on the list. And, obviously, mobile phones and social networking is banned. I was hoping though, that you, my lovely readers, might come up some good ideas or share your experiences, whether or not you’ve been on honeymoon.
What would you recommend we do on our honeymoon? And, any packing suggestions or tips?
