What I ended up wearing...

Well, the weather was cool - so I wore the black pants and red top to the wedding. Had a couple of people say they were glad I did, so they weren't the only ones in pants! A bit of a shame I didn't get to wear my new dress, but I'm sure there will be lots of occasions I can wear it (and if there isn't, I'll make something up). Thanks for all your advice.

The wedding itself was lovely. The bride was beautiful (aren't they always?), the people waiting got a laugh when the groomsmen comically pushed the groom into the church, the reception was lovely (I should post the pictures J took of the food - heavenly!) and it was great to see everyone.

A few oddities though - the priest started the wedding ceremony with a history of that particular church. It was a nice little story, but something that didn't seem connected to the actual ceremony, as far as I could tell. We also got to hear the church's stance on what constitutes a marriage (yep, no problem with that) and also their views on breakups and divorce (err... at a wedding?? A related subject yes, but statistics on how many marriages fail is a bit of a grim thing to ponder during the actual ceremony!).

On a different subject, Chickie recently expressed an interest in learning karate. I'm very happy to encourage him to get into after school activities, so all three of us now go to a karate class on Monday evenings. We had our first class last week and Chickie seemed to really enjoy it. As we were getting out of the car afterwards, he gave us a bit of a laugh. He ran to the front door ahead of us, got into one of the punching stances and said 'Don't worry mum, I'll protect you'.

And a last giggle for you...

Overheard in the supermarket yesterday:

Husband: (picking up a packet of chocolate biscuits) This is for our Biggest Loser 'push'.
Wife: What??
Husband: Well, how can we lose weight, unless we put it on first?

That is so funny. My husband just said today that he wanted to fatten up so he could take three months off work and spend five hours a day exercising while others watch him.

Not my idea of a holiday, though. He'll be going alone!

Rob watched that show once and said: Yeah, ANYBODY could do it with a personal chef, a personal trainer, a world class gym and nothing else to distract me?!

That wedding spiel was weird! Was he an old priest?

Glad the wedding was nice, I think with falling church numbers these days the priests might use weddings as a platform to reach out to all the heathens...

Glad you had fun at the wedding. I'm sure you looked amazing. Too wierd about the priest though.....

Karate is something Travis is interested in but we're going one activity at a time. Tee ball is proving to be quite a time consumer.
