The end of the week

Really can't wait for the weekend it can't come soon enough!

Lovely wedding yesterday with Natasha and Paul everything went very smoothly indeed. Monday we marry Karen and David who I met today at their pre-wedding. Karen is very excited and can't wait until Monday arrives - colour theme orange and cream.

As you know last weekend I was in the UK and it was very hectic so this weekend I want to re-arrange my terrace and hopefully get it ready for my summers entertaining. And of course there is my Sims game which I neglected last week - eagerly awaiting Sims 3 on the 5 June 2009 - hurrah! New house, new family lets hope I don't manage to starve them to death like I did my last Sims family. I really try and not go up to Zucchini at the weekend other than to feed and walk Nikki and Norman otherwise I feel that I am never away from the place. Occasionally I have to pop in to The Design Studio if I have an order to get out or get something out for the chefs for Monday. The problem is we only live over the hill from Zucchini and its so easy to just pop into work.

I have also decided that there needs to be a little more ME time, after all I spend enough time looking after other people (quite happily of course). Firstly I really have to address my fitness, but I hate the gym so I am going to get a walking machine. Its the only gym equipment that I like so maybe there's a chance I will keep it up and actually improve my fitness - fingers crossed.

Apart from fitness and my terrace not very much goes on in my life. I will of course be working everything around Alex and the football even my son who loves football thinks Alex's obsession about it is crazy. In fact I figure that if his obsession with work was as bad as it is with the football we would be millionaires by now! Well thats my theory for now.

I think Paphos is finally dry after our very wet weather of late. The grass on the surrounding hillside has already gone brown and the humidity is starting. Nights are still slightly chilly but bearable. At least I don't have to worry about every wedding thinking its going to rain and the gazebo drapes getting wet, and the poor couple who have come all this way to get married in the sunshine. Alex always gets very stressed if the weather is dull and I constantly have to remind him that its the one thing that we have absolutely no control over. - none at all!!!

Back from the UK

Well what a trip! Far too tiring just going to the UK for three days I had too cram too much into such a small space of time. I met Phoebe for the first time - very cute and so well behaved, Isabella and Holly were on form and very active, Jamie and Liz really do have their work cut out not sure I envy them too much!

Had a very interesting trip too Bath just outside of Bristol. I absolutely fell in love with the place and its where I will live once I decide to return to the UK - in the future of course, don't worry I'm not giving up on weddings just yet! Apart from Bath there were numerous trips to shops that I don't have access to here in Cyprus. Now I'm not a great shopper but you do have some great shops back there - you lucky people!

We are currently re-vamping the website it desperately needs it. Yesterday we added a new section called 'Wedding Albums'. The idea is that you email us your wedding photographs and we will upload them as a slideshow on our website. We can either put all of your album on or your favourite photos, its up to you.

Another new option is Blue Olive the sister restaurant to Zucchini will now become available for weddings. This venue will be for those of you on a slightly tighter budget but still want all the nuts and bolts of a Zucchini wedding. We won't be offering an a la carte menu but we will be offering buffet and meze. The venue is very bright and modern, the perfect place to have a wedding - OK so you don't have the Zucchini view but this restaurant is situated in a beautiful, tranquil setting in Coral Bay. The food will be fantastic and of course you will benefit from our expertise in organising weddings.

Another idea, still in the thinking stages is organising weddings for couples wanting to get married in Cyprus but not using our venues - it does happen some people do want to use a hotel or another restaurant. If this is the case - fine but they will be able to benefit knowing they are having their wedding organised by a professional company.
