I'm in Perth this weekend because I have some practical components to do for my Gemmology Course.
I normally enjoy looking and learning about all the different gemstones, but I won't lie..
At the moment it feels like a big fat nusiance.

I'm finding it hard to give assignments and practicals my full attention when there is two measly weeks until our wedding.
Not very long is it?!
The proximity of our wedding date hit home yesterday when I was eating some yogurt.
I noticed it had a 'used by' post-dating our wedding.. I will be married before that dairy product goes off..! and we all know dairy has a short shelf life.. Eep!
It's also at the point now, whenever I buy or organise anything wedding related people invariably say to me 'leaving it a bit late aren't ya?'
Our friends from Overseas are starting to arrive next week. And I'm feeling guilty as I will be back up North by the time they get here, and won't be back down until the week before the wedding.
The Celebrant has sent us the first draft of the ceremony, which we have chopped and changed and ummed and ahhed over a few readings... now waiting for the next draft.
We've had some last minute additions and subtractions to our guest list.
An addition being a couple who we originally left off mainly because we don't catch up very often. However during lunch together last week I couldnt stop thinking 'I want you at our wedding' and the feeling didnt go away. So we asked them. I did feel a bit awkward bringing it up as obviously raises the question why werent they invited in the first place, but she is an understanding soul and was stoked to be asked and I'm stoked they're coming. Yay!
A subtraction being some of the Mr's unreliable mates who have taken the time off work to go to his bucks party but not his wedding. (WTF?)
Had my dress fitting yesterday. Three cheers for the dressmaker actually showing up!! Dress looked so good with the hem up and the sides pinned, more like wedding dress, less like little girl playing dressups.
Still in two minds about the veil, but just like a good little consumer, I have ordered one just in case. From Wedding Veils Australia. Their website is a bit daggy looking but Pat has been so lovely and really helpful and the service is fast. I went with the Allure Veil in ivory- which is a very subtle, round cut, single tier fingertip veil. (4 days ago I had no idea what any of those adjectives meant)
It is due to arrive before my next dress fitting so will give it a test run then.
I have updated my To-Do list for the next fortnight
