"Can I marry your daughter?"
..An now the conclusion to ASIFR.
Last time we learned that somehow me and Mrs H had fallen into the trap of agreeing to marry each other and I wanted to get the permission of her dad, Richard/Dick (real name Brain) and he had said the following…
Now we shall learn the outcome of that shocking revelation and what happened next!
Brian: “Do I have to pay for the bloody thing?”
ME: “Nonono, we’re sorting all that out…”
Brian: “Do I have to wear a suit?”
Mrs H: “Yes dad, you HAVE TO WEAR a suit. You cannot come to me wedding in you traksuit pants and walking boots.”
Joan (mother of Mrs H): “Do I have to wear a frock?”
Mrs H: “Yes mother – you have to wear a frock?”
Joan: “Do I have to wear a hat?”
Mrs H: Christ almighty!! NO, if you don’t want to wear a hat, you don’t HAVE to wear a hat!”
Joan: “Hmm… I do have those Mickey Mouse ears somewhere. I could wear those…”
Mrs H: “Oh god! That’s it! NONE OF YOU ARE COMING TO MY WEDDING!”
At this point I notice Gary, Mrs H’s brother smiling. “Well I’m really pleased for you both. I can’t wait”
ME: “Thanks Gary.”
So it appears that one out of three of Mrs H’s family are happy for us to get wed.
Conversely and for the interest of fairness I should point out that the reaction from my family was along the lines “Bloody hell, it’s taken you long enough”
Families are great.
In conclusion Me and the soon to be Mrs Mrs H will be legally tied together later on this year.
It is at this point I would like to point out if anyone is looking for work you might want to seek out something in the lines of a registrar. They get paid a bloody fortune (well It’s cost me a bomb so far) and seem to work very little hours in an office at the back of the library drinking tea all day.
*Sorry for the delay and keep you all in suspense but I have been very busy trying to break my back digging up all this snow and ice. Easter is only a few days away and The campsite is nowhere near ready. We have had to cancel a lot of arrivals and if this weather keeps up there will be no money coming in and We will be having Dog for tea!
