A tiny bit of wedding talk now! (Sorry I know there's a lot of people itching to know all the details but I am keeping it quiet, first time for everything...)

Anyway. Many of you may well remember this post here which was coordinated by two special people, namely Emmie and Rose. Anyway they set up "Emily's fund" to ensure lovely kind gifts and gestures went to a safe place for when I was well enough to spend it. People were amazingly generous and lets just say I had a significant amount of dream-making funds provided.

I kept it all safely stowed away as I wanted to spend it on something really special...and I thought you would like to know that I have now spent that money! I have bought the wedding dress of my dreams.

And no it does not look like this.


So each and every person that contributed, please feel safe in the knowledge that you are helping me achieve a dream which I was beginning to think was not possible, and a bit of you will be there on my special day (er our special day Em, do try to remember to include the groom at points...)

Thank you so much, all of you. For everything over the years. There is no real way to repay you all for your thoughts, wishes, cards and presents except to try and demonstrate just how well I am utilising my new found lease of life, and to remember to savour it as it truly is a gift.

Fabulous looking frock and I wouldn't put it passed you to pick something EXACTLY like that!
So very happy to hear what you spent your "happy fund" on - what a marvellous way to "celebrate" it - and NO WAY did I think you would use this money for a wedding - many Congratulations! xx

I have to say, I'm rather excited about this wedding, never had a daughter so tend to home in on all things sparkley,iridescent and pink when I get the chance.

Much love hun

What a lovely way to spend the money!!!

I know you don't want to give away details, but are you able to say when you are getting married?

Your posts always cheer me up because they are so full of delight at things we all take for granted - and it is a fantastic reminder not to do so.

Love and congratulations

Deb

Emileeeeeeeeee - don't like being kept in suspense!!!

So glad a substantial amount of cash was collected - and what a perfect way to spend it. You are going to make such a gorgeous couple - can't wait to see the photo's. Have 'OK' made you an offer yet? Could pay for a wonderful honeymoon and you are far more famous than most people they feature.....

To the future Mrs A - you deserve all of it and more - you both do! Audrey xx
