It’s one week today until I get married – that sounds so crazy! Everything is pretty much ready, just trying to stay calm and sane. It’s getting a little bit difficult because I am keeping a big secret from my FI and his whole family, and I am really not good at keeping secrets. So I’m going to share on here, to keep me from blurting it out to someone who will be there on the day.
My FI and I are both really close to his older sister and when he and I first lived together she pretty much lived with us too. She married and moved across the world with her Australian husband and we’ve managed to see her about three times in the last six years. She has been out of work for a while after an injury and so was struggling to get the money to come over, especially with the olympics making flights crazy-expensive. She has made all of our favour boxes and name cards and sent all of those over last week, admitting defeat and we started to organise skype at the hotel so she could at least be there in a way. We were all really gutted, especially FI who wanted her there so badly.
Last night she rang me and told me she had managed to buy a last-minute flight and would be arriving on Saturday and that she was only telling me so I could organise numbers and that no one else must know. I am dying here! I hardly slept I’m so excited and FI is going to be over the moon. Seriously I was lyng in bed last night, my heart pounding thinking that he must be able to hear that, he must know that something is going on, but so far nope!
So on Saturday I am going to casually suggest that we go out for lunch and on the way I’m going to try and keep a straight face as we drive into the train station to pick up his sister who will have travelled for nearly two days to get here, and then once we’ve revived him, we’ll drive on her to their mum’s house to surprise everyone.
ARGH, so excited!

WOW! That’s amazing! One of my BMs moved to New Zealand over Christmas and is coming back for our wedding and that’s exciting enough, but having it be a complete surprise is incredible! I’m not surprised you’re about to burst

Yea! Glad it’s not just me who thinks this is awesome. FSIL is on her way (somewhere over Asia right now) and I am keeping up the straight face. Heading over to her best friend’s house now to drop off a pressie and I’m going to have to agree over how sad it is that FSIL will not be at the wedding.
I also have to ring up the suit hire place and see if they’ll change FI’s appointment for tomorrow which he booked up for about half an hour after she gets here!
I have so much nervous energy right now between this and the impending wedding; my apartment has never been so clean!
