All suited up

So we ended up buying Him a suit on the weekend. I know, we weren't going to. But they were on special, and, well, why not. It is a very dark colour, bit hard to tell if it is blue or charcoal, but has a fine stripe through it. Very soft too. And a red tie. The tie itself is lovely. It is a real scarlet colour with darker embossed stripe, and fancy filligree work through it.

Then we had to get a shirt. I looked at a couple of cream ones, but the one he chose is practically white. It too has an embossed stripe and filligree work through it. Mind you, his ensemble cost as much as mine. But I guess he needed a suit anyway...

So we have started packing. Well, Jr Her is packed, and I am working on it. Pretty much finished. Just need to iron my jeans. Other than that I am done. I hope. Oh, and the brush I dry my hair with on Friday morning. If there is anything I have forgotten, I will get it over there. I just need to figure out what to do about a jacket. I don't want to fill the suitcase with one.

Oh, and Jr Her has a head cold...

By the way, we were given another wedding present on the weekend. This from a lovely neighbour two doors down. She chose a squareish glass bowl, with mother of pearl finish and translucent white hand painted stripes inside. Very beautiful!

Tomorrow I have to finish work on time and nip to the nearest phone shop. 3 is charging a fortune for international calls, so I want to find a prepaid cheaper sim card, which shouldn't be too difficult. Lets see what I can come up with. Set myself a challenge and lets see...

Sounds like things are coming together quite well.... Buying a suit is an expense, but at least its something that will be used over the next few years... and you never know when it might come in handy!!

The wedding pressie sounds lovely... aren't you lucky?!!!

I hope that you have a fabulous time in New Zealand... and that everything goes well with the wedding.

TAke care... and happy packing.... so exciting, a holiday and wedding all in one!! YAY for you!!!
