HON­EY­MOON DE­NIED “I

You and Your Wedding - - First Night Special -

thought I’d been hold­ing it to­gether bril­liantly, man­ag­ing to or­gan­ise a wed­ding in un­der four months, while hold­ing down a job and jug­gling fam­ily life with two kids un­der seven. *Smug face*. Un­til the day be­fore the wed­ding, that is. At­tempt­ing to check in for our flights to France for a dream fam­i­ly­moon, it tran­spired that my daugh­ter’s pass­port had ex­pired. Who knew that they only last five years for kids? Ev­ery­one but me, it seems. The night of the wed­ding was spent di­alling Easy­jet from our five-star ho­tel in­stead of kick­ing back. With ev­ery op­tion totting up to be more ex­pen­sive than the orig­i­nal £1000 ticket price, all we could even­tu­ally do was drown our poor sor­rows in cham­pagne and en­joy an almighty lie-in – no kids. Ev­ery cloud.” Alexan­dra, Ox­ford­shire
