I Solemnly Promise…

“Solemnly – Basically you’re taking an oath, and you’re promising the hell out of it”

I get it, I’m getting married and need to be prepared and organised.

Plan ahead, think first and delegate funds.

We have a spreadsheet, or two, or three, or four well maybe six. I’ve actually lost count, in all honesty. There’s just so many floating around, mentally screaming at me, when I go to buy a dress “nooo Danielle the spreadsheet said no”

“Shut up spreadsheet you’re not the boss of me”

I have nothing against the spreadsheets that my partner created, when we had one I was like great we are soooo super organised. 

But now, well now we have one for the honeymoon, one for the wedding, one for the guests, and one for……I don’t actually remember.

Every single week, I hear this voice “how are we doing we keeping up with the spreadsheets darling?”

Darling? Really? Don’t sweet talk me when you know I hate, yes that’s right hate, the word spreadsheet.

Let’s be truthful here, they have helped massively and we have stayed on track, but I just want to go on a huge spending spree! Of course I recommend them to all brides and grooms to be, it’s the only way to stay on top of things.

So don’t worry If I can keep up with them, so can you! Yes it may mean cutting back on the buying, It will be worth it.

But I promise, when this wedding is done, I Danielle will solemnly promise to burn the spreadsheets!

Morning rituals…

It’s suddenly occurred to me I have a morning ritual when it comes to my dogs.

I get up at 4am for work, my one dog Bonnie will follow me downstairs, dives to the door like she’s never been let out, when just two minutes ago she was snoring, I open the door and let her out.

At 4 am no one is awake! The house is quiet, no one is up in the street and if you are a yorkie owner you know they love to bark! It just comes natural to them.

So when my darling dog goes outside, I pop my head out the door and whisper

“Bonnie don’t bark, don’t bark please, just have a wee and that’s it”.

When I think she is done squeezing every little drop out, she barks!!

Still whispering I go…

“Bonnie no shush, the neighbours will wake, get inside now”.

Every morning this happens!

I then go to my other dog Alfie and go

“Morning Alfie, it’s time to go out”

He is completely oblivious and “pretends” to sleep.

So whilst I’m running wild getting ready, theres me constantly talking to Alfie whilst he lies like this…(picture below)



Now I would just push him out or even pick him up, but he is a Westie and they are so heavy!

The only way to get him outside is coax him by saying this magic sentence.

“If you go outside you can have a bonio”

And off he trots outside, comes back in and I’ll give him his bonio and he waddles off back to bed.

Dogs got me fooled.
