I had to buy the Daily Mail on the way home today after I spied a fellow tube passenger reading one with some kind of headline about stories behind wedding dresses on ebay. Of course mine doesn’t feature in the article, no one asked me!- but the first one I bought is on there for sale right now! I had thought I was going to have to give the thing away as I had tried to flog it on wedding discussion boards without resorting to an auction, but last week I gave in.

Was not expecting it to sell for anything more than a tenner – I did my research and saw lots of similar dresses without bids. But I did a couple of smart things like list it in 2 categories and make sure there was a clear photo of it, and voila, it’s still got 3 days to go and it’s already at £46 – I only bought it for £67 in January! So that’s some decent news.

In other crap news, I have about 12 weeks of work to do in the next 3 weeks, before I am off for a month. Today I was given a couple of extra major tasks that I wasn’t expecting, and I have no idea how I am going to do it all. Well, actually I do – it’s called working every damn night and weekend. Argh. And when I am supposed to have a life?? Oh and finish organising a wedding??

At least I have red and white cake to look forward to tomorrow. Must remember to take some photos again of Mark and his maple leaf tie.

Ah yes, memories of last year, with Dena too…
