I must really thrive on being overloaded, as, on top of the wedding, yoga and dancing, I've decided to make this year extra-busy for myself by getting a new job. Not just any job, mind you, but a role that I've been wanting for years now, since ever before I met my fiancé. And, to make things even more challenging, it's a role within the same company, so I can't just drop everything the moment I finish my notice period, but there's every chance that I'll have to work in my current role beyond my notice period, or even end up double-hatting for a while.

Spoke too soon (aka wedding admin is never over)

So, it would appear I spoke way too soon of "free weekends" in this post. While I had half of the big items done, there were still other things to deal with, such as (1) registering for marriage preparation, (2) booking a Catholic church and priest to officiate at our wedding, and, what I'm finding is the toughest of them all, (3) getting a wedding photographer. To top things off, I had an incredibly intense start to the work year, for reasons I'll talk about another time.  For now, I'd like to talk about what we got up to in January in relation to our wedding.

New year, new start

So, here we are. The first full proper weekend of 2015 after the first full proper week of work and yoga. It's been such a busy week that it's hard to think that we've only just had Christmas and New Year. Still, I suppose that's a good sign, particularly in this economy.

I'm still on a bit of a high from having purchased my wedding dress and booked the wedding banquet venue, which must mean that I have made the right choices on both fronts.

On track

Here we are, almost at the end of 2014, a year which has, quite frankly, whizzed by so fast that I am not entirely sure what's happened. That's a good thing, I suppose. A year that goes by so quickly because I'm doing so many different things, that I have no time to rest, other than the magical Christmas period when my office decides to close.

It's been a nice few days of doing nothing much (though, thankfully, not over-eating as is our tendency during this time), and, with just three days left to this year, I'm incredibly pleased to report that, bam, just like that, we are now back on track with our wedding planning. A week or so ago, we were behind on deciding on a wedding venue because it was just so hard finding a place which met our key requisites. Now, having spoken to the venue manager, and having adjusted our expectations in what we can and cannot do, I'm delighted to say that we have our venue on our desired date.
