Celebrate good times…


I predict exciting days ahead…

Next weekend is my cousin Laura’s wedding. I can’t wait! It’s a momentous occassion. People who know me know how many cousins I have and how important they all are to me. I have one male cousin out of a total of about 15 and he is the only one who is married. Laura will be the first of the girls to tie the knot and it is going to be a good party!

The preparations for the wedding have already taken about two years (it seems like more!) but the big day is creeping closer and suddenly becoming a lot more real! Last night was the wedding rehearsal at the church… I hope the actual day isn’t so chaotic – none of us could stop giggling… especially since the grooms middle name is Algy.

Tomorrow my cousin Maria comes home from Indonesia – the last time she was home was last summer so she hasn’t seen my flat yet! I am very excited about showing her so have got lots of housework to do tonight to make it nice and tidy! We are going out tomorrow night for a few drinks to celebrate her coming home and my cousin Katrina who lives in Leeds is also home for the weekend.

On Wednesday my aunty Mag from Dublin is coming over with my second cousin Sarah who is about seven years old. On Thursday I am going to take her and cousin Rosie to Twycross Zoo for the day with a picnic and everything!

Then it’s Easter weekend and final preparations for the big day. My cousin Catherine and her daughter Caitriona are coming from Dublin on Saturday and then all the family will be home except for Joey who can’t make it as he is in America : (

On Easter Sunday we have to go to the church so the florist can dress the altar and pews and we have to do a quick run through for my cousin who missed the rehearsal!

Then the wedding is on Easter Monday – I can’t imagine the chaos on the day and the tears and the excitement. Laura, the bride cried walking down the aisle for the rehearsal let alone the real thing! The reception is being held at Nailcote Hall and the food and everything sounds lovely. DJs from BRMB radio station are the entertainment for the evening so it should be a great party! Tuesday I will be recovering from the hangover and enjoying the wedding breakfast at Nailcote Hall and then Wednesday it is back to work!

A busy week and an exciting one! Bring it on….

    I had my wedding reception at Nailcote Hall and it really was lovely, the grounds, the staff, the rooms and the food were brilliant. You’ve just brought a smile to my face now thinking about that fantastic day. Hope your cousins wedding goes really well.

    Thanks Sharon! I went with her to see Nailcote Hall before we booked it and it looked really beautiful… I am glad you have good memories of it.

    Dear Eleanor
    You must be the daughter of Cathy (nee Moylan) I went to college with your Mum and even went to her wedding! We were great mates and had alot of fun but lost contact when I left college. I tracked her down through friends reunited a few years ago but there were problems with her email and I didn’t get an address or a phone number(she said she had to wait for you to come home to sort it to even reply to me) and I have changed my email address loads since then anyhow. But I have never stopped thinking about her – if she would like to get in touch that would be great – I googled her name and up came yours – hope you don’t mind – many thanks – oh I have just seen the pic of your mum and dad in your flat your mum looks great – time has treated her well !!!

    Hi Liz, Mom was delighted to hear that you had been in touch… unfortunately she was never very good with email or the internet! If you want to email me at, I would be happy to pass your email on to my mom and I can also give you her phone number or address to get in touch with her directly…
