Wedding blog

I'm thinking that we should create a wedding blog to countdown to the big day. It would also be a useful repository for all of the usual wedding info that is required for guests. They could even leave us supportive comments, helpful advice, top tips etc.
However it could be a massive time wasting exerise, and I don't have a problem wasting time at the moment.
So that's decided, I'll do it.

I've just got back from a trip to Yorkshire where I was flown round in a helicopter - not this one, but the picture was taken from the one I was in. The guy flying this 'copter used to fly Anneka Rice in Treasure Hunt, and claimed to have dated her.
The bloke we had was Alan Partridge incarnate. He spoke in that sort of mid-Atlantic twang that local radio DJs perfect and actually used the word 'methinks' to end a sentence. Proof!
Mind you, he got us safely from point A to B and the view was spectacular as the sky was very clear. It really is the only way to travel.
For our final stop of the day we landed on the local lord's crouquet lawn - honest - as the hotel we were staying at didn't have its own helipad. Lord Feversham, for it was he, even popped out to show us through the bowels of his house to where our lift was waiting. All in all, a very interesting day.
