Late last week I had a strong suspicion that I should call up my friend Samantha and enquire as to, “What was going on?”. I managed – without much difficulty, to deduce that she was engaged to her boy Steve and they’d had the unfortunate experience of not being able to get on to her Dad – as he was (at the time) in Uganda and so had to keep it a secret for several days until they could reach him. Much to my surprise Sam has asked me to be a bridesmaid!
It is an interesting thing coming at a wedding from a different angle. This is the first time I’ve been in any way involved to this level (apart from getting married myself). Suddenly the decisions aren’t mine and things really aren’t my responsibility. I hope to make myself useful. But am pleased to be slightly more removed from the stress.
Sam and Steve are getting married in September.
I’ve also found out this week that my friend Katie is engaged.
Yes, indeed, it is all happening!
