Please Take Notice...

Hey Everyone...

Well today was an important day. The fiance and I headed off to the Barnet Registry Office in Edgware to give our intent to marry and get our notices of marriage. We were slightly nervous, as we'd heard that they ask lots of questions. But the registrar was lovely and it was very simple. We now just have to wait 16 days, during which our intent to marry is posted on their notice board, before we pop in to pick up our certificate! How exciting! Feels much more real now.

Then it was back to reality... food shopping, flat cleaning etc. But I had a special treat today. A massage bought by the fiance. I mentioned yesterday however, that it was in a chinese medicine shop. The girl was lovely but tiny, but boy was she strong. Last time I had a massage it was pretty rough and I ended up very bruised and couldn't sleep on my back. This one however, was ten times harder. Literally I was holding on for dear life, and she even chopped on my back so hard it sounded like she was slapping me. 50 minutes later I was pummeled to within an inch of my life.

At the end she asked if I needed to see their Dr about anything. I almost said my back, but answered no! We'll wait and see if I can move in the morning, but I am already in pain so I doubt it.

Anyway, I have some lovely pictures to show you. On a spur of the moment we decided to stop in at Kenwood House due to the beautiful weather...

  1. Ooh all getting very real now, you'll soon be a Mrs! Lovely photos, I like the pink house too, but if I had the choice I'd take Kenwood House!

    Hope your back is a bit better. My husband bought me a massage on our honeymoon and the bloke who did it could have killed me with one finger! It wasn't exactly relaxing!
