The week seems to have flown by and here we are at Monday again . How does that happen ? So my regular readers (all three of you !!) will realise that it's time for Matt's Word Game !
Lets have a little look at the words for this week ;
POINTER , CHASED , SOONER , PLEATING , MALTED , LIGATED , CREEP , ROUNDED , GLOVE , SEATING , LEAFY.
If any of you would like to have a go you can find the rules and words on Matts blog page http://miblodelcarpio.blog.co.uk/ . So without further ado here goes ............................
I knew the day was going to go badly, it would be like pleating gravy . Everything I had planned was going to fall apart and sooner or later the shit would hit the fan . This was the biggest , most high profile , event I had ever organised and I knew I had done an amazing job .
I had finally arranged the seating and chased up the specially requested , exotic blooms from the Phillipines . I had made sure that the pearl white , monogrammed balloons had all been secured , tied , ligated ,whatever you care to call it , to the huge silver arch , beneath which the bride and groom would stand . The special , romantic arbour where they would hold hands and make their vows and kiss .
I had rounded up the most talented orchestra and given them the long list of requests , the brides favourite tunes and the special arrangement of the 'first dance'.
I had booked the most fashionable caterers and risked the chefs disapproving stare when I gave him the recipe for the special malted dessert , apparently a favourite of the brides mother !
I had even given the waiting staff a pointer or two about etiquette and made sure that every uniform , from hat to apron to glove was perfect .
This wedding was going to be legendary in its beauty of design and decor , its leafy , rose- petal strewn, crystal sparkling , fairy- lit , pink -cloud filled perfection .
So why was I so worried ? What on earth could possibly creep in to spoil such careful planning , such meticulous arrangements ? The bride and her formidable mother would be here in an hour to inspect the room and give me the praise I so richly deserved .
However , when they arrived , I would be sitting in a soft topped sports car , hurtling towards Gretna Green with the groom !!!
