Got my dress, the training and do more work.

I hadn't really appreciated (until now) how many things untangled yesterday.

1. I picked up my wedding dress today. It's everything I'd been hoping for, and I feel beautiful in it. I wish I could say more about it, but I want to keep a few surprises for the day. My parents come round and I try on the whole ensemble -- shoes, veil and jacket. I wish they weren't taking it away to keep it secret from Nick. Otherwise, I think that the moment he left the house each morning, I'd put it all on again.

2. After a chat with the manager of the training centre, the funding that I've been waiting for since July comes through as if by magic. I'm going to learn audio typing, which is a skill I've never picked up.

3. Getting an email from an editor saying he'd like more work from me. This is a huge relief; and very exciting, too. It's a licence to ask nosey questions of interesting people and then to write about it. And be paid.

  1. Yay! I'm glad the work thing seems to be sorting itself out. Keep believing it will happen and it will. I know it. And how exciting that you are getting married. I remember my wedding dress excitement nearly 14 years ago. I'm sure you will look gorgeous. We'll have to have a photo!

  5. Blessings to you Clare! Whatever you wish for do it with your whole being...and I am a big believer in speaking it out loud... the Universe has a funny way of coming to your aid. Can't wait for the big reveal on the dress and the day (I know that this is all about words, but you will post a picture or two, won't you?). Enjoy the day! Erin
