2017 – the stats don’t lie!

“Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are pliable.”  Mark Twain Thoughts of a Destination Wedding by the Mother of the Bride, was my most read post for 2017. Did you see it? I’ll try not to make this one of those boring over the top posts highlighting a list of my top posts for 2017 but I can’t make any promises…

52 week photography project – Week 13: Self Portrait #2

Source: Week 13: Self portrait #2 Week  13 of our 52 week photography project had the theme of Self Portrait. We apparently will do a self portrait every few weeks and I’ve been assured it doesn’t have to be an actual selfie, but a photo that says and shows something of ourselves. Our first week was also a self portrait so it will…

Fiji countdown

Not long now…..

Only a few more days until we leave for our daughter’s wedding in Fiji.

Only a few more days until we have the family together for the first time since last Christmas.

Only a few more days until I can kick back, relax and laze around the pool.

Mother of the Bride update #4 – the final countdown

Welcome to the latest update from the Mother of the Bride! As I sit here writing this update, the song playing on my random rock selection is The Final Countdown – I kid you not! I was searching for how many days until the big day and that song comes on – how random!!!  (Followed closely by ACDC’s Thunderstruck…I could…

What It’s Really Like to be the Mother of the Bride | Bridesmaids Confession

MOB fun with B2B – update #3

Welcome to the latest update from the Mother of the Bride! As you probably know by now, my MOB status has been restored with baby daughter’s wedding planned for October 2017  – in Fiji!   It is a very small intimate affair with only parents, siblings, and a few close friends.  We are now looking at less than 6 months to go!!…

Beautiful Brisbane – Musings on a Monday

Welcome to my weekly Monday Musings – a summary of things going on in my world and the world at large. Brisbane is a lot warmer than my hometown, where FYI they have just started lighting winter fires! It’s very humid here and although the locals think it’s a bit cool, I think it’s a very comfortable temperature in the…

MOB#2 update

Greetings fellow bloggers!  You may not know but my MOB status has been restored with baby daughter’s wedding planned for October 2017  – in Fiji!   I’ve been told (by guess who?) that I’ve been very slack in keeping everyone up to date with news of this happy event. Hence this  post!! In my last post, The MOB returns, we were in countdown mode with…

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: The morning after

Happily ever after….the day after my daughter’s wedding looked a bit like this… I couldn’t sleep in despite the huge day we’d had, so I got up and wandered around the marquee picking up bottles, collecting glasses, enjoying the presence of the wild brumbies and kangaroos, not to mention the shaft of early morning light. I replayed the wedding and…

Victory – Final MOB update

Final update from the Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) THE WEDDING of the year (2015) has been and gone. It was beautiful, amazing and everything we could have wished for.  I’m happy but also sad – if that makes sense. We had the wedding over the course of a weekend with the majority of guests staying on site.  The ceremony was…

MOB update #3 – Trials and chook runs

Update #3 from Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) There are now just 33 days to go until THE WEDDING. My daughter, B2B and fiance G2B, and two of the beautiful bridesmaids have just been and gone!  We had  a weekend jam-packed with all things wedding related. As they all live a long way away (with one bridesmaid still in England),…

MOB update #2 – to spray tan or not to spray tan?

Update #2 from Mother of the Bride (aka MOB) My daughter, B2B, informed me a few weeks ago that the big day was less than 100 days away.  It’s now way less than that.  Cue excitement levels rising!! I can’t believe that time is flying by so fast.  She appears organised, so I’m feeling quite relaxed about it all too.  B2B and G2B are…
