An eventful weekend!

Guess what we did on Saturday? We got MARRIED! Well, technically, we got ‘civilly partnered’, but if that’s a real phrase, it’s a damned ugly one, so we’ll stick to married if you don’t mind!

It was lovely and perfect and small – just us and our parents, a lovely meal out and a night in a beautiful hotel. This week we’re off work as much as we can be, with the intention of having a relaxed and romantic time looking round our local area.

Sadly both our wedding day and at least the start of this week have been marred somewhat by the fact that I, and now jay, have been struck down by the lurgy. Nasty, hacking coughs, tight chests, snotty noses, aches, shivers, earache and sinus pain. Pah! Paracetamol is only doing so much for me and I’m trying to avoid even that now, as I’ve had three days of dosing up and don’t want to push it.

When we’re feeling a little more human, we’ll share some snaps with you, promise!

    YAY!
    I was a straight wedding that was very – ah – straight. So to know this was going on the same day sets all things right with the world.
    Congrats, y’all.

    And you might want to see a doc about that cold (mine turned into 3 different infections and the antibiotics were safer than anything over the counter, and worked to make me feel better).
    Hope both of you are feeling better soon!!!

  30. Congratulations! Thats great news 🙂
    Incidentally, when civil unions were made law in NZ, they tried to refer to them as CUPs (Civil Union Partnerships) leading to such great sayings as ‘let’s get cupped’ and partners being known as cupcakes lol It didn’t stick though…

  40. Congratulations! Yay for you! We CP’ed a year ago (on the 6 Oct) at the British High Comm here in Oz (thanks to my dual citizenship). Even though it’s not recognised here it made me so grateful that it’s made possible elsewhere. Sounds like your day was lovely, I do hope you are both recovering and feel better soon x x
