I spent Saturday at a friend’s wedding and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The day went so smoothly and I have to take my hat off to the bride and groom for organising everything so perfectly. This was my first wedding of the year and there was a concern about the weather in the run up to the big day. There has been so much rain recently and at the end of last week it was torrential! But thankfully it was dry on Saturday and the sun even came out. My favourite part of the day was finding my favourite sweets on the table ahead of the wedding breakfast. I love Haribo and as it turned out a lot of the other guests did too! So we were all quite happy to delve into them before our meal arrived. I had thought ahead as I knew there was going to be a ceilidh at night so I packed my flat shoes in my bag. If I had tried to dance in my heels I would have been falling all over the place! I enjoy a good knees-up and I like taking part in the traditional ceilidh dances. I have to say it was one of the best weddings I think I have been to.
Cheesy television: I have to say there is some rubbish on the box and sometimes it can be strangely addictive. For example I have started tuning in to an American reality series entitled ‘The Millionare Matchmaker’. It is very cheesy television and the main star on it can be incredibly rude and obnoxious but I like her! Basically the show follows Patti Stanger, who is the owner of the Beverly Hills-based ‘Millionaire’s Club’ dating service. She matches single wealthy people with closely compatible dates and we follow her as she firstly picks potential matches and then lets the rich attend a ‘mixer’ where they get to speak to the matches she has selected and see who they like best. Usually the millionaire ends up picking the most unsuitable match and it’s great to see the fireworks explode! It’s so American, way over the top but always entertaining!
