Dear Blog,

I can only assume that the containers are dimensionally transcendental (like the TARDIS) when they are originally packed. But the dimensions are quite close and converging such that once the item is packed, the container and item now exist in the same dimension and the item now occupies a larger space within the packaging's dimension.

I mean... it's the only resonable explanation.

Dear Blog,

The tent uses inflatable beams in place of the usual poles so you lay it out, peg the base down and then inflate the three main beams which form arch shapes. You then peg down the guy ropes and done which means you can put up a pretty big tent on your own and quickly. Alfie wasn't so sure of it though, there was a lot of barking at me when I was using the pump and then he seemed puzzled by the way the fabric inside the tent was billowing in the wind.

Are you still going for a game of thrones themed wedding Ras?

Dear blog,
I'll supply the wine! *heh*

I'd not heard of that before John, sounds pretty good unless your tent gets a puncture!!

Dear blog,

Do you need any internet censorship doods hanging round the back to check everything is fine for the masses to see? Sure us at the techpond could get something organised. I hear John is a dab hand at uploading photos to a facebook album. ;)

Dear Blog,

I don't think a Game of Thrones themed wedding would be such a good idea anyway...

Dear blog,

Sounds great Todd! Ours is running at an "organised chaos" rate at the moment. I had to laugh when someone was quoting us £1000 for a coach, especially when others were quoting £400!

At least we picked the rings last week. My mother in law's house got broken into, so the insurance money is paying for the wedding rings. She also bought be a Longines watch with the rest of the insurance money to welcome me to the family! :D

Dear Blog,

I quoted Toddie's dear blog, it's clearly allowed! Or I would be writing a blog post about commenting on someone elses blog post! It's just logical!

Ah, Ras, what that is, is the 'Wedding prefix inflation index':

Groom: Hello, I'd like to rent a function room and have food for 40 people.
Bloke: No problem sir, that's £1000, what's the special occassion?
Groom: It's my wedding!
Bloke: Ooooo, a wedding, I'll have to consult the wedding list for that, yup, that's £6k please.
