I don't know what to do!!!

I'm intending on getting married in the year 2000, but I have not a clue where to
start. I know what I want but it's just getting it ..

I am interested in getting married on a boat which I want to hire but I don't know where to find one that will be big enough to cater for all my guests which will be near to my location . I am finding this really stressful and time consuming and I'm even loosing sleep over it.

please help,

Karla aged 20


Dear Karla,

First of all let me congratulate you on your forthcoming Marriage.

It can be a very stressful time if you let it, what you should be doing right now is contacting your nearest registry office. You are going to need someone who can legally marry you and your husband to be, whereever it may be!!!!

Check out the local newspapers around your area and Yellow pages, perhaps they have barges or boat cruises advertised, also pop along to your nearest travel agents, they may have a few ideas for you and maybe some wedding offers that may appeal to you. It's really is worth a try.

Hopefully you've organised your outfit by now, remember it's better to do it now than rush around a few weeks before the wedding!!! Don't forget to order your flowers, and make a list of everything you need, even arranging hair appointments at least 2 weeks before the big day.

Don't forget the presents for the Mums, Bridesmaids and Best Man. but stick within your finacial limits and don't over spend, it's easy to get carried away!

Last of all, remember even if things go wrong, it's your day, you will be surrounded by people who love you. You are Princess for a day.

Have a magical time.


I am living in Edinburgh after moving from Heysham 2 months ago, I hate
those stupid Scottish accents...

What to do Bob


Well Bob, it's like this:

Why did you move to Scotland if you don't like the Scottish accent it sounds a bit Irish to me (no offence!)

Have you ever recorded your own voice on to a tape recorder and played it back to yourself? Most people can't stand the sound of their own voice, can you?

Many Accents take a bit of getting used to and two months is not really enough time.

I suggest you buy bottle of Malt Whisky and share it with some of your new found Scottish friends (Although they won't return the favour unless you're buying!) Your eyes will blur, your walk will waver and your speech will slur but before you know it you'll all be speaking the same accent and you will all understand one another perfectly!

Remember... I'm not as think as you drunk I am!!!

PS you were joking weren't you Bob... Bob!
