Today was always going to be difficult if not hectic....I was due in church at 9am, the precise time the gardner, the cleaner and the builders were expected along with a delivery from Tesco. Just getting my car out was going to be tricky! Putting it back in its place even trickier!
The rain stopped all of that! We sent the gardener home and the builders never showed up at all!
This afternoon has been a wedding rehearsal....it was very different.
The bride was half an hour late, the groom even later....
This was no bad thing as it gave me time to listen to the flautist once we had unearthed a music stand.....Since my flute playing daughter died there are some pieces which break me up.... none of these were in that category!
The bride appeared ten minutes before the groom and was in tears.
The groom finally appeared and said."I am not happy" in a very loud voice.
Only after the rehearsal did I find out the exact nature of the problem.....The bride had lost the groom's credit card...in Tesco!
At the end they were just about speaking but it had been tense!
It reminded me of another wedding rehearsal where the groom and bride were furious with each other...he had lost his passport.....unless he found it the honeymoon was off!
He didn't find it they had to go to a hotel instead.....That was five years ago and they are still married and still happy....the small blip didn't really matter......I am hoping for the same for this couple tomorrow!
Just don't let it rain Lord!
