It’s been quite the week. It started off okay, but for deadly sinusitis that I couldn’t do anything about until I saw a doctor (normally I’d just overdose on sinus meds). Slowly, however, work is turning into a complete nightmare, culminating in a really bad Friday, and I am going to lose my entire team if I don’t manage to fix a few things. Nothing under my control (it’s that damn thing where you have to work with people – here’s wishing I just worked with computers or something) and I am not sure if I am going to be able to make anything better – so it’s going to be really stressful. Actually it already is really stressful. Looking forward to stress leave…

I started changing my last name this morning. Which is interesting. We had to open a joint account because several people gave us wedding gifts to Mr and Mrs Willer, and I needed to change my name at the branch to get that joint account opened (luckily we both happen to bank in the same place anyway so it makes it easier) – but we only got ourselves organised enough to do this today. It was the first time I’ve had to sign my name something other than Emma Bowman and it was very bizarre and I have no idea how I am going to remember to start doing that. Now only about 50 000 other people/organisations to notify that I am doing this. Eek.

We also FINALLY managed to get most thank you notes out to people this morning for their generous gifts. I was about to explode if we didn’t get those finished soon.

We’re giving an extra thank you to Mark’s dad and step mum tomorrow as they really exceptionally helped out before and after the wedding. His dad was fantastic, doing so much around the house with Mark like sanding the parquet floors, and many many odd jobs. The day after the wedding, both his dad and Zari and their friends cleared the entire marquee with Tami. We’re taking them out for lunch up in Warwick where they live, and we’ve got a few nice bits to give them (including the Laura Secord chocolates I found at Selfridges – yes they cost a hell of a lot more than they would in Canada but I couldn’t even believe they were there and at least they are getting something special!).

And can you believe it…Mark actually sold all his DJ equipment this week. Yes I almost had a heart attack too. He didn’t get as much cash as he really wanted but we really needed to get rid of all of it. He really shouldn’t have saved it for the wedding.

    Almost a year later, and I still can’t get used to my new name! When people call me “Mrs Durbin”, I think they’re talking to Paul’s mum.
