Today I went to Leeds shopping with Imogen. Ostensibly this was to get me out of the house so that Mister Mat could work without me under his feet, but really, it was so I had an excuse to buy silly things. Like make-up. I haven't bought make-up in TEN YEARS. And underwear. I have never ever in my life before had matching bra and knickers before, because underwear has always been purely functional and... Well, yeah. Mister Mat was so impressed with new purple bra that I got ravished on the spot when I modelled it for him (and very pleasant the ravishing was too ;)), so HURRAH for Marks and Sparks, say I. And, you know, am still wearing it now and looking down and... well, there's cleavage there. Quite a lot of cleavage. Also, fairtrade cotton vest tops for £3.50? Yes, was quite impressed with teh M&S.

Also, Next Clearance store is FAB! I finally, FINALLY have a nice long black skirt to wear with my corset, and it's perfect, and fully lined and everything, and it was £15. And jeans with sparkly bits on.

BOO for the Corn Exchange being renovated, and thus almost empty and lotsly closed, YAY for the lovely lady in hippypottermouse (such a shame the dress didn't fit Imogen), BOO for pervy men on the train, but YAY for fabulous lunch in Whitelocks. Also, YAY for nice jam in the organic food supermarket.

And then getting home to be greeted happily by the [livejournal.com profile] shrublette was lovely, too. She asked: Is Mat going to stay, Mummy? I think Mat should stay with mummy! Forever!.

He said he was working on it, which made me smile. I still occasionally feel surprised that he hasn't run away screaming yet, but I'm rather happy that he hasn't.

Last night was really cool. [livejournal.com profile] susannah_banana is a fab DJ and played lots of cool stuff and also much amusing cheese. [livejournal.com profile] matgb and I did some utterly filthy dirty dancing and lots of snogging and there was a boy with the world's most amazing hair (yes, [livejournal.com profile] puddingcat, even better than the bassist from Trivium) and also a boy wearing a T-shirt that said on the front "Schrodinger's cat is dead" and on the back "Schrodinger's cat is not dead" which was very cool.

Also, transport was not that bad. Nights out in Leeds are feasible! Hurrah!

This morning... well, there was one of those perfect moments, when you're laid in a post-coital snuggle in the arms of the one you love and you don't want it to ever end. Sadly, it had to end, because I had to get up for work, and the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] nannyo and Mup had arrived with breakfast. Theoretically, they were coming to pick up some stuff I had borrowed. This somehow turned into them arriving with croissants and smiles and making breakfast for very bleary [livejournal.com profile] matgb and I. And then giving me a lift to work. My gratitude for this wonderfulness knows no bounds.

And now I am home. [livejournal.com profile] shrublette is at her dad's for the week. The house is all quiet and empty. There's no click-type-giggle of Mat on the laptop behind me. It just feels... odd. Like there's a bit of me missing and I can't quite put my finger on what it is...


Anyway, there has been wedding discussion. Nothing is concrete yet, but we're looking at May next year. Venue(s) are still under discussion. Finances are totally up in the air. We're thinking that, rather than a wedding list, we'll possibly ask people to contribute to a honeymoon fund, because, well, we already have toaster and juicer and stuff... Does this sound like a plan? Also, we definitely don't want to have a SOPPY first dance, but are unable to agree completely what it should be... Front runners at the moment include Misshapes by Pulp and The Love Cats by the Cure... thoughts of the f-list?

As for clothing... Well, I can't wear white, can I? It would be false advertising. So I have had the madcap idea of having six bridesmaids, and doing the colours of the rainbow. I'm bagsie-ing violet, and then Shrubby in Indigo, and others in red/orange/yellow/green/blue. This way I can make [livejournal.com profile] puddingcat wear canary yellow! Yay! And obviously [livejournal.com profile] ginasketch = red. [livejournal.com profile] missdiane, would you prefer blue or orange? For Sarah-ex-lodger is having green, and best-friend-Claire says she's not bothered and can wear any colour... And is it possible to get morning suits in black? Because, you know, Mister Mat in a cravat? Rawr.
