- Wedding: October 2014
Things have been so chaotic the last few weeks I haven’t had much chance to read the boards or to post. Having been engaged for 18 days, during which we set our date, booked venues, chose bridal party etc, I then had a call from my fiance’s housemate to say he was meeting me from the train (I’d gone down to visit) but wouldn’t tell me why. My fiance was in a police cell, held on suspicion of fraud! The police released him without charge as there was no evidence but his employer has suspended him and insists there’s enough evidence for an internal investigation. 3 of them were arrested at once and none of them have done anything – the manager of their office seems to be trying to cover his own back by passing the blame to them. Their colleagues have threatened to walk out but it hasn’t helped (most however will defend the 3 of them at the enquiry) for now it’s just a mess. My fiance has been very stressed and depressed – he hates injustice and to be caught up in it was just so unexpected. He’s getting himself together now but it will be a long road to clear his name. We talked, wedding plans still on track (I offered to postpone things if he needed the time but he insists on going ahead). With all that going on, I assumed my period was late due to stress – took a test on Friday and it turns out I’m expecting – not great timing but it’s given my fiance the impetus to keep fighting! We both want kids, just hadn’t expected one so soon. Sooo…a 6 month engagement with a fiance who needs to clear his name, get a new job, we need to find a place to rent and I’ll be about 5 months gone on our wedding day! It’s a lot to take in, so I hope no-one minds the post – trying to get my thoughts in order!
