How Eyjafjallajökull ate my wedding

So, there probably won't be much in the way of FOOD here this week.

a) my wedding is this Saturday, for those of you who for some insane reason aren't crossing off the days on your wall calendar, and so my diet has shrunk to emergency rations only and

b) the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, has stranded over 10% of the wedding guests abroad, meaning that I have to spend the majority of this week pacing up and down going "Fuck!" and not much time in the kitchen

Anyway, I didn't want anyone to think I had given up. I'm just on bridal high alert.


  1. I expect you're the only person in England apart from newsreaders who can say Eyjafjallajökull. Maybe you should get someone to set up an internet feed for stranded guests - I was amazed at the weekend by the quality of an internet feed of a real tennis match, not quite up there with 3D TV, but good enough to see the action and, crucially, the ball

    Enjoy the week, and especially enjoy the day


  2. FUNNILY enough, I drove past Eyjafjallajkoll during a trip to Iceland 15 years ago. Little did I know...

  3. Enjoyed your comment to AAG at Petrus - is this the faintest hint of a common thread?

    May your stupid horrible arse arse buggery diet pay off and your tiny arse be invisible in the slutdress.

    Enjoy the wedding ... bottoms up!

  4. I said to Adrian that his aftershave smelled "rectal", which it did, and he seemed enthusiastic about that comment. And then, desperate as I always am to entertain Adrian (it's not that easy) I thought I'd persue the bum theme... little did I know he'd spread it all over the ST. Still, he could have said worse things. Me & my fat arse are heading towards the wedding with a stiff upper lip xxxx

  5. best of luck for Saturday. only piece of advice i'd (humbly) suggest is that you have as many video cameras as you possibly can posted around the joint. the day goes so quickly that you need as much evidence as you can to prove that YES you did get into that dress, Giles did say THAT during the speeches and "who the hell invited her" etc for years to come. Hope it goes very well.

  6. Now that you have a surplus of wedding guests, you should charge a fee to get in. haha.
    I am sure it will all turn out fine. Now that Giles can see again with new contact lenses and everything. He will say "I do" to the correct person.
