There are many things in adult life that I just don’t seem to understand or know how to do that for someone the wrong side of 25 I feel I should know. For example:
- How does anyone paint their nails without completely covering themselves in polish without spending an hour with a cotton bud scrubbing the side of your fingers to make them look respectable?
- How do you put salt in a dishwasher? (why does it even need salt?)
- How on earth does anyone figure out mortgages and buying a house? (in the process of this so need to work it out soon)
- How do people go on a night out, get drunk and function at all the next day? (I seriously need to answer this)
And one other thing on this list is how to plan a wedding, which up until now has not been a pressing issue. But, having been engaged for over a year, we decided we really should crack on and organise something, cue absolute terror at the thought of being partly responsible for planning a wedding.
This leads us to the creation of this blog and why I feel the need to share this journey with you in the faint hope that I’m not alone and that there are others out there who are desperately trying to ‘fake it until you make it’ through their adult life.
So even if not one person reads this, I’m going to give it a go and hope and pray I survive the next 15 months as a hopeless bride-to-be.
