like a river flows surely to the sea....

OK people, that's it: I don't think I'm going to get another chance to blog before we leave for Vienna. For one reason or another, my dad is picking us up tomorrow night to take us down to their place so that we can all travel down to Heathrow together on Thursday morning. Although they're willing and curious travellers, my mum and dad don't really go anywhere much on their own - they prefer going with more adventurous friends. They're naturally very excited about the trip, but they're fretful about all sorts of things, from whether or not there's going to be enough car parking at Heathrow all the way through to a concern that they won't take Mastercard in Austria....

So anyway. I've just got to pack (rings? check. suit? check. fiancée? .....wait a second.....check.) and get through the day in the office tomorrow, and then we're on our way.

I'm really looking forward to it. It will be nice to celebrate the day and to celebrate our relationship with some of my closest friends and family. We're having the ceremony in the Rathaus in Vienna on Saturday, followed by a bit of a private tram ride around the city and then the reception and party at a wine garden on the hills above the city. It should be fun.

See you on the other side.

  1. Book your parking in advance, Mr & Mrs Toni. It's cheaper.

  2. Have a lovely celebration and holiday.

  3. thanks Ian - but yeah, I know. Parking is sorted!

    I loved their worried call about Mastercard though. God knows where they picked that up from. I found myself reassuring them that

    a) it probably wasn't true


    b) if it was true, they could either use a maestro or cash.

    dearie me.


  4. not good old fashioned cash? surely not.
    Photos. Photos. Now, where did I put that 'Wedding Photography for Beginners' book of mine?
