First off I must say don’t worry if you haven’t yet received your invite… truth is we’ve been a little slow getting them out and with all the crud that took place a couple of weeks ago regarding the house they’ve been on something of a back burner since. Now though, with all fingers crossed they should be out…. soon!
Whilst the invites have been going along at a snails pace I’m pleased to say that most of the other stuff is getting there and today I got the call saying our rings are ready and would I like to pay for them? So they’ll be with us on Saturday.
I’m sure they’ll look great and having the mental age that I do I’m sure the first thing I’ll say is “Ooh, shiny!”. Having said that there is a pause for some thought.
A pair of jeans lasts perhaps a couple of years, a watch a fair few more but a ring… for the rest of my life, crikey!
I wonder what it will look like when life’s taken all it’s twists and turns and it gets taken off of me. Personally I hope it’s dulled down, scratched here and there and looks well worn. I’ve no desire to wear bright ‘blingy’ jewellery and to me a ring that looks like the one I described sounds to me like a ring that was worn everyday, for a long time, no matter what.
Of course life has many twists and turns, some that you don’t come round but if I do make it to old age, well I know who I want to make it there with.
