nice day for a white wedding… April 22, 2008

That was the song we played when I walked down the aisle. We were such bogans. Today is our wedding anniversary. We don't usually remember until a few days too late. I only knew it was today because Daz came and asked me last tuesday did I want to go out that night for our anniversary. I said 'I don't think it is our anniversary'. So I had it on my mind.

So 19 years married, 23 living together and 1 hanging out before that as friends.

As everyone's is, my wedding day was memorable.

I woke up that morning with my period for a start. I mean really, maybe the only day in your life you have a white dress picked out to wear and can't make a last minute change.

Then my back had a muscle spasm and I had huge pain and my right hip moved up and I was stuck in a funny bent over position. Sort of like I was pushing a lawnmower. So I went to the doctor and he gave me enough drugs to get me upright and pain free.

I went to the hairdresser with my bridesmaid and when we left the car wouldn't start so I had to push it.

I went home to get dressed and realised why girls wear button up shirts when they have their hair done. Not tight tshirts like I did.

Then off we went to the wedding. Me, Daz, Bubbles (bridesmaid)  and Wig Boy (best man). I guess we must have been early because I remember being parked on the side of a country road outside the venue, sitting on the bonnet of the car while they had a cigarette.

It rained.

But Kimba got to come. Yes, she was a bastard child. After we were married a letter came from the registry saying "the child has been legitimised".


Here I am with my Dad. He was in pretty good shape then. No way he'd be able to walk me down the aisle now.

I don't have any scanned wedding photos with my husband in them. Poor dear. But here is a nice one where we appear to have matching mullets. You wouldn't believe how many people used to comemnt on how nice my hair looked then. Notice my nice black jag we are leaning on. That was wiped out in a massive hail storm. Had holes right through it. The girls seem to find this photo hysterically funny. I think he still wears that jacket.

 And this is a recent one that I like even though the quality is crap. We were at the under 16 AFL game. And even though it is riveting watching 15 year old boys run around on a wet winters night playing football we were messing around with Dazs new phone.

  3. cat Says:

    lol – thats what my husband says. And for that we should all be thankful.

  4. cat Says:

    I'd just like to point out that the matching haircuts were not intentional!!

  5. Worker Says:

    Hope you enjoy your day….

  6. SweetMisery Says:

    No I didn't figure that. Otherwise you would have matching jackets

  7. cat Says:

    pizza and beer I'd say

  8. M-----l Says:

    Your husband looks exactly the same in the two pictures. You look great in all three eras, but I'd never guess the pictures were of the same woman.

  9. Those are lovely Cat. You looked gorgeous on your wedding day. Love the mullet shot too.

  10. cat Says:

    I'm a chameleon – although I always have that hard sharp looking nose

  11. cat Says:

    funny to look back at photos and see how you looked, when at the time you thought you looked perfectly normal.

  12. Waterbaby Says:

    there's a mild Meryl Streep thang goin' on with the nose. the mullets, well, I'm gonna keep my trap shut for a change …

  13. cat Says:

    Well there could be worse things than a mild meryl streep nose

  14. chris Says:

    Happy Anniversary!

  15. cat Says:

    thanks chris 🙂

  16. Lizzie Says:

    It must almost be over now, but I hope you two had a great day. Loving the mullets, though it does make me thankful that I didn't know KT when he had his, or when he had his undercut and long ponytail. Eeek.
    I recently found out that when I got married to the kid's dad, we should have re-registered Number One Son as he wasn't legitimate. No-one told us at the time and it was only because I needed replacement birth certificates for everyone that someone from the registry office mentioned it. When I told him that his 18 year reign as a little bastard was over he was devastated!

  17. cat Says:

    lol – well actually if you look closely in the top photo you'll see I have an undercut. And a ponytail.

  18. Happy Anniversary! You two look adorable in the low quality cell phone picture! You look like you are still honeymooners. 🙂

  19. cat Says:

    thanks – yeah, we get on pretty well.

  20. none Says:

    Matching mullets…hah! I had one too!You guys seem like a great couple..congratulations!

  21. Reney Says:

    I feel the need to share…I too was a BOGAN with a MULLET

  22. cat Says:

    I'm sure there are lots more of us out there too afraid to fess up
