Maturing at last? Maybe.

My house mate is planning her wedding. In advance. I mean, *serious* advance - a few years, to be precise. But with waiting lists on venues often being two years at the very least, it would seem that it would be wise to forward-plan! And the cool part? I've been asked to be a bridesmaid!

I never thought the day would arrive when I'd be happy about the prospect of being a bridesmaid. I've been a bridesmaid *once* ever, when I was very small, but have never been asked since, and the bona fide tomboy that I've been most of my life would have wrinkled its nose at the idea in the intervening years anyhoo. But... well, I dunno,maybe I'm maturing *very slowly*, because the idea of being a bridesmaid and being a bit girly actually now holds some appeal! I think it'll be quite cool and, hey, it's a huge honour to be asked. I might be 30 before it happens but hey, it's something to look forward to.

Said house mate is currently organising her guest list and, with her rather large extended family and a list of friends to make one tremble, it's looking set to be a big do. Her comment of the evening (in my mind, anyway) popped out as she scanned her list of names and announced "I've decided there are too many Stephens in the world." Awkward silence followed in which I tried not to smirk. I only know two Stephens, after all... One of them's my uncle. And I don't need to say anything about the other.
