Not SN related, however, seen as you guys on the sn board are the closet things I have 'friends' and know more about my life than anyone in real life...I would like to share with you that I am getting married on Saturday! smile

2boysnamedR Wed 23-Oct-13 00:25:28

Congratulations!! Very exciting indeed!

frizzcat Wed 23-Oct-13 00:34:45

Well, it seems to be my sort of shindig - I don't care where the oil is, who's got it and what it's on so long as those fruit shoots keep coming I'll be dancing

claw2 Wed 23-Oct-13 00:39:47

Blimey indeed Wet and I haven't even started on the Fruit Shoots yet! With hindsight, a hen night with you guys would have been a right giggle!

Lol Frizz, ive just found myself a bridesmaid!

coff33pot Wed 23-Oct-13 01:19:57

Wow! Congratulations! Lovely news to read smile wine

fightingthecarrots Wed 23-Oct-13 05:16:43

That's great news Claw smile
Hope you have a lovely day - you deserve it wine

senmerrygoround Wed 23-Oct-13 06:39:36

thanks congratulations!

KeepOnKeepingOn1 Wed 23-Oct-13 06:44:59

Congratulations Claw thanks

He must be a keeper - I'm not sure DH would have married me post-tribunal (ranty, teary, stabby etc)

Scottishdancer Wed 23-Oct-13 09:21:42

That's great news. Congratulations!!

claw2 Wed 23-Oct-13 09:44:34

Lol Keepon and thanks everyone

ouryve Wed 23-Oct-13 10:00:51

waheyyyyyy!

frizzcat Wed 23-Oct-13 11:10:12

I'm only being a bridesmaid if I get a frock, a big one with ruffles and frills and a hoop, it must have a hoop for extra bouffant loveliness. I can only wear the colours lavender or peach and the mahogany spray tan goes without saying...

Just thought I'm not around for Friday night goose & carrot as I'm out... And partly because I don't know where it is blush

bochead Wed 23-Oct-13 11:20:11

Anyone that can stick around thru the crap you've had to deal with is a keeper. I'm with your DS on this one - how many sleeps?

Vodkha fruit shoots and gin jellies anyone?

iwanttoscream Wed 23-Oct-13 11:22:21

Congratulations, at last all those black clouds are behind you. All the best for Saturday!

wetaugust Wed 23-Oct-13 11:25:31

Frizz-illa

The Goose and Carrot is our SN 'virtual pub' that opens as new thread every Friday night on Special Needs:Chat board.

All welcome

claw2 Wed 23-Oct-13 11:37:34

Ds adores him Boc, he has the patience of a saint. No one can endure hours of Lord of the Rings Lego on x-box, obscure quizzes about Moshi Monsters and Pokémon which no one but ds is ever going to know the answers to and he puts up with me, he is like Superman!

Sounds lush Frizz I will pick up some ribbons for your hair when I pick up my cake today!

frizzcat Wed 23-Oct-13 12:19:26

Right that's it! I'm off to AIBU to complain that the bride is making me wear ribbons in my hair.
claw you need to start one about how unreasonable your bridesmaid is with all her demands and how she won't wear the lovely ribbons you've paid for.

I'm sorry, a wedding just isn't a wedding unless there is an AIBU thread running, with a name change of course because that will stop you're nearest and dearest realising its you, even though you've dished all the dirt and quoted conversations with offending parties.

AIBU? wink

NotNewHereAlias Wed 23-Oct-13 12:29:12

Amazing news!
Claw, that's fantastic grin grin flowers

Are you making miniclaw wear a minitux?

rippingYarns Wed 23-Oct-13 12:34:13

What lovely news, claw

All the best and wishing you and Talon a life full of love and happiness together.

I'm sure you have that already, but s'what you say, innit?

MariaNoMoreLurking Wed 23-Oct-13 12:44:55

Strongecoffeeismydrug Wed 23-Oct-13 16:48:33

Ooohhhh congratulationsgrin.

Goodness me! grin

Huge Congratulations!!!!

And I was gonna give MN a bit of a break and now I have to attend a Hen Party............................

Will it be anything like that lunch? <I popped round one day and had a full buffet with waitress service people, - Claw doesn't skimp, M&S self-decorated cake or not>

Don't buy a carrot cake. The ceremony and party should be without carrots.
