(1st October) Mum and dad went out for the day, so Taz and Buster were sleeping in with me until they got home which was 1.30am… Dirty stop outs lol!
I’m awake now, Got my Danone drink and my vitamins to take… I love the Bassetts ones because they’re like eating sweets 🙂
Haha, as soon as I finished with the vitamins etc, I started playing Sims 2! I got Nightlife and it’s so addicting. Here’s Lillith, Her sister Angela is married to Dustin and they have 4 kids: a boy Parish, 2 girls Verity and Cadence and another boy Oren.
Mum reminds me that the Christening starts at 12.15 so I better get my butt moving! Decided to “dress up” ish with some black trousers, a white top and a black blazer.
My cousin Dawn with her husband and baby 🙂 We’re sat in church for the Christening. It’s nice to spend time with my mum’s side of the family, we see my dad’s side every week, but rarely mum’s side
Then we were off to the Pike for a party! Yay!
I took my other cousin’s daughter to have a look at the cake, isn’t it lovely? It was Dawn and Robert’s wedding cake!
Fooooooooooooooooooood! It’s not all for me, my mum helped me with half of it. I had the ham roll! Mmm, good old BRITISH CHIPPIES! Those chips were lush, proper English chips, not McDonald’s french fries rubbish 😉 Big chunky chips lol!
We start to say goodbye to everyone and head off home as only mum and me went. Stewart had to go somewhere with Claire, and dad was at home in bed feeling ill. We’ll be seeing everyone again in November though, my cousin Martin’s 18th birthday, will be WELL cool!
… and back to Nightlife!!
Whoops, realise the time! I gotta get to my mate’s house but I gotta have a bath and wash my hair as the pub was all horrible and smokey… but not until I check UKScrappers first… What’s that? Doodlebug kits? *drools*
At my friends house, just finished watching Antique’s Roadshow, then it was Malcolm In The Middle, followed by Top Gear (Richard Hammond… Mmmmmm) I love that show, they played 5 a side football with cars in tonight’s show… and it’s got Rich Hammond in it! Then after that it was Mechannibals…
We carry on our TV marathon with Bad Boys! I should be going home shortly, I can’t stay up too late, I’m tired already!
I’m back home, but I had to finish it off as I was watching it already. AHHH! Look at the time, goodnight!
It’s our first morning here in Egypt. We got here last night. I had a drink of coke last night before bed from the bar, hence the cup!
Better get up and have a shower 🙂
Right, I’m all ready with my bikini underneath my clothes, hehe.
This is the pathway to get to the main hotel building, our room is separate. On my way to get breakfast!
I grab the chocolate donuts of course! I dunno what that red drink was but after a while it wasn’t very nice lol. I drank it anyway, but I shan’t be having it again I don’t think…
Right, our welcome meeting was meant to be at either 10am or 11am, Mustafa (our rep) couldn’t make up his mind on the coach last night, haha! We go and check it out but we realise it’s at 11 so we sit at the bar and have a few drinks before it starts
We have our excursions list. We decide we want to do “Ras Mohammed National Park” on Sunday and the “Bedouin Evening” tomorrow night. Riding camels – should be fun! The Bedouins are the “People Of The Desert” 🙂
Now we’ve finally finished with the welcome meeting and booking the trips and all, it’s time for some FUN! I’ve got my towel and stuff so I can go to the pool 🙂
I sit down for a moment to see this guy making sand pictures in bottles. A girl was watching him, so I decide to go over and watch myself 🙂 It’s pretty nifty!
Better not overdo the sun today, so we head back to our room. I’m pretty tired too, so I’ll just have a little nap watching BBC World…
Yikes! More than a little nap! I must admit I woke up a few times and watched “Full House” and “Friends” I’ve just had a shower now I’d better dry my hair
Time for Tea! This is our HILTON bracelet/tag things we have to wear for our All Inclusiveness hehe.
After dinner, we head to the pool bar. I stick to Fanta Orange! lol. It isn’t long before those 2 empty chairs get filled and we get chatting to a couple from Guernsey
*yawn* Believe it or not, I’m still really tired, so I’m heading back for an early night.
I finished work today (12th) and was picked up by my uncle. Tomorrow I’m going to be chief bridesmaid for my cousin Sarah’s wedding! (far left)
We had been out for a meal, watched TV and drunk wine, but we decided to go to bed, cos we had to be up early!! Me and Leanne (other bridesmaid) had to share a bed in the back bedroom.
I didn’t sleep very well. I woke up at 5:10am and manage to get to sleep again before both me and Lea woke up.
Sarah had her first phone call to wish her luck, it was our Nanny Irene. We just sat around watching cartoons 🙂
Mmmm! Times for breakfast! Sarah cooked us sausages in a roll. Delicious!
Had to start getting ready by this time! Sarah’s friends were our hairdressers for the day and they were due at 9:30!
Leanne’s shot of me going into the bathroom!
Our flowers turned up, brought by the groom’s parents. The flowers were gorgeous! We put Sarah’s bouquet in the sink and mine and Lea’s in a bucket to keep them fresh until we needed them…
The hairdressers still hadn’t arrived. This is me talking to my mum on my mobile phone! She was wishing us all luck.
The hairdressers coming up the drive. Boy were we glad to see them!
They start on Sarah’s hair, before doing ours and then finishing hers off
Now our hair is done, it’s time to have a quick drink of wine! We had just over an hour before the Rolls Royce picked me and Leanne up
Soo and Uncle Mark come to see us. I took this shot from the stairs.
We all have to start getting dressed now and add our finishing touches before the car comes. This is Sarah’s dress… But you can’t see it 😉
** Sadly I couldn’t take any pictures after this, as we had a mad rush on to get ready, and I couldn’t take my camera with me. I gave it to the hairdresser to take care of until the Reception. Me and Lea went past the market in the Rolls and it was market day so everyone was staring at us 🙂 We pulled up at the church, shortly followed by the bride and her father (uncle Mark). The ceremony went great and I had to be a witness. From there the bride and groom went in the Rolls to the Reception and me and Lea went in Uncle Mark’s Car, complete with ribbons, through the town center **
My brother, my cousin Leanne and my cousin Craig at the reception. Everyone else was at the bar getting in the drinks! We were waiting to be called to have pictures taken. My and Leanne already had a load of pictures done at the wedding.
This is me in my dress with my Tiara and my bouquet! I was very proud!
Finally we get called outside by the marquee to have pictures done. This is our 5 Generations picture. My great nan, My nan, My uncle Mark, cousin Mike and his baby daughter Morgan.
I couldn’t resist this candid pic of my bro holding Soo’s handbag! After this everyone had to stand facing the building. There was a small hill which the photographer stood on and captured everyone who attended the wedding. We also had full family pictures done. I look forward to seeing those!
The head table! My chair is on the end, next to Leanne, the groom’s mother, my uncle Mark, Sarah, Kevin, Groom’s father, Soo and finally the best man on the end. We had a huge 3 course meal, and as soon as you took a sip of your wine a waiter was back topping it up!
Sarah and Kevin cutting the cake 🙂
Argh! The reception went on a bit longer than everyone expected, not that we were complaining! But we had to race back to our hometown ready to catch the minibus back to the party!
We got home, and Stewart wanted his picture taken for his Fiancé Claire. I dropped my bouquet off and my presents (I got a Tatty Teddy (metoyou) bear as a bridesmaid saying “Special Bridesmaid” and a bottle of champagne!)
We found our table back in the marquee and started to drink and have a great time!
Holy! It’s Charlie from Busted! Haha, nope this is a guy called Eddie (Didn’t get the chance to talk to him) He doesn’t look so much like him in this pic but if you stood and watched him, you’d swear it was! Kevin took this picture for me as I didn’t have the guts to go and ask him for a picture.
Time for the bride and groom to have their dance. They chose Shania Twain’s “From This Moment”, lol, I almost cried!
This is my step-cousin Tim, posing for the camera! I was exhausted after all that dancing, so I sat and chatted with everyone when Tim came to chat with Stewart and my dad. Not long after this, I got back up on the dancefloor but I hurt my ankle somehow 🙁
*sob* The party finished at 1am, so we all had to jump back on the mini-bus to go home. Leanne, My Aunty Jayne, Tim, Becky, Craig and a little bit of Mike in that pic!
Finally, over an hour later I get back home and hang up my dress and jump into bed. It’s been a great day, but sadly it had to come to an end…
