A very excited Colline gets married at the Gibbon Bridge today. Making beautiful beautiful flowers for her big day. Got to bed at 12.30am then up at 6 for a quick dash to the wholesalers. The bride added three thank you bouquets to the order at the last minute and I didn't have enough roses!! Now to rush back and make 9 buttonholes, 7 corsages and 3 bouquets before 12!!

May 1st

Is it May already??!!!!
Had a fabulous time in Holland but it was great to get home. A few us felt we were still on the boat days later and now I've got a streaming cold :(
Oh well, the sacrifice was worth it to see all those amazing flowers. As soon as I get time I'll upload the pictures for you all to see.
As soon as I got home had to start on my last assignment - a business report about marketing/finance. Yawn yawn.
Finally got it handed in with 2 seconds to spare. If you don't hand it in by 4pm on the day the maximum marks you can get is 40%. I went to the aid of a great friend who was struggling with hers. We ended up having printer and computer problems. Everything crashed with 7 pages left to print. NIGHTMARE.
Drove at neck break speeds to college, got the assignments bound and handed them in at 4.05pm. The poor girl behind us in the queue had to have hers stamped with Tuesday's date. Boy, were we lucky!!!
Now at work about to have a second wedding consultation with a beautiful bride. Here's hoping she likes the flowers and ideas I have in mind.
