Silence. 'Cough...umm is your fiancee from NZ?' asked the tentative registrar.
Me, laughing 'Yes!...did I not tell you?'
Registrar, not laughing 'Do you have the correct visa to marry him?'
Me, not laughing either. Stomach dropping. White knuckles tight on the phone. 'No - what visa? What do you mean?' Nervous laugh. Ha ha.
Registrar, realising the consequenses.'Umm, you need a visa to get married to someone from NZ. It usually takes approximately three months to get one issued'
Me, not wanting to hear. Thinking of solutions, any solution. Breezily,'Oh, I'm sure there'll be a fast track. I'll call you back.'
Me, on the phone to the home office. 'Oh. There is no fast track'. Silence. Silent.
But I have a huge dress which is so beautiful! I have the shoes, the bridesmaids outfits, the location, the booze, the place settings, visitors from NZ.... all the stuff that too me so long to plan.

When I first realised what you could achieve with socks, I tried myself. Three mutant scary monster animals later, I needed something to calm my nerves....Hand made chocolate egg filled with hand made truffles anyone?? These organic eggs are made in Edinburgh and had me floating on a coco cloud, where I could look down and see my odd sock animals from afar...and that was close enough! I'll leave sock animals to the experts...
