Monday Morning Matters


Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend? What did you get up to?

So the big news this week is that Wayne and I have WON A HONEYMOON TO MALAYSIA!!

I know, pretty amazing, right?!

It was all a bit of a shock to say the least when I found out last Monday that I was the winner of a competition run by Brides magazine.

Last year I entered a whole stack of competitions on their website but never thought I had any chance of winning them. That’s probably why when an email popped into my inbox entitled “Congratulations on winning your honeymoon!” I almost didn’t open it as I thought it was just spam!

It’s a good job I did, though, as it turns out it was legitimate and I had indeed won a 10-night honeymoon for Wayne and I after our wedding next month.

And breathe!

A lovely lady called Lizzie from Turquoise Holidays then spent last week organising it for us and sent us the itinerary on Friday. It’s pretty unbelievable still to be honest. We will be spending three nights at The Majestic Hotel in Kuala Lumpur before transferring to Pangkor LautΒ for seven nights where we will be staying in a Sea Villa, which stands on stilts over the sea!

I still can’t believe it. We would never have been able to afford a honeymoon like this ever in a million years – so we’re not going to Spain after all and are booked in to have our travel vaccinations this week.

Blimey – what a start to 2014!

In other news, I had my wedding makeup trial (which went very well), Wayne and I did the table plan (which I just have to make – have got an idea, though!) and we had a great meeting at our wedding venue and with our florist which answered a lot of questions. So all good!

I’m off to go and pinch myself to double check that I’m not dreaming…

So what is your news?
