Today, Drew and I made an important decision.
Today, Drew and I decided to be spontaneous.
Today, Drew and I booked our Wedding!
After an entire decade together, and creating three beautiful daughters and a rather fetching son, we have come to the conclusion that we should go the whole hog and get hitched too!
What has spurred this second act of spontaneity? (for the first, see here)
Well, as bizarrely as it may seem, it was the booking of my CyberMummy ticket that pushed us to this decision!
The date of our marriage is Friday June 24, 2011.
Now, those in the know will be thinking.. "Why the hell would you want to book your wedding day the day before an 11hour conference in London?" Right?!
Well, there is method in my madness, I promise!
Due to me being in London all day on Saturday for CyberMummy, I've had to book an over night stay.
Drew and I have never, ever, in the entire 7 years with our 4 kids had more then 3 hours respite from them! Seriously!!
We have wanted, for a couple of years now to visit the Tate and Drew has never been on the London Eye, so we thought maybe this is our first excuse for an overnighter without the kids!
This is an extremely rare opportunity for us and Drew's parents have very kindly agreed to have the 4 kids for that one and only Saturday night!
So we thought.. why not use this as our 'honeymoon'?
An entire night without our children and a bit of sightseeing thrown in to boot! (A-ha I hear you cry, good thinking, yes?!)
We would not have been able to afford a honeymoon anyway so this solitary night is all we're hoping for. We will return to pick up the kids on Sunday evening, in time to do bath and bed and the school run the next day.
So there you have it. That was my big announcement.
I will be sharing my honeymoon with ALL of the CyberMummy attendees. Feel very privileged people!
It's going to be one hell of a weekend, and I truly can't wait!
