At first it wouldn't sink in, I had no idea what I thought. Me and Mr Messy had guessed ages ago that LMS wasn't telling us something, she got evasive about answering questions and just seemed to be keeping something from us. And then there was American Boyfriend sorting out all his stuff and getting rid/selling loads and saying his sister was taking over his room etc. We didn't guess exactly what they were planning, but we knew they were planning something!! We know you too well LMS lol.
Mr Messy told Drama Teen and she said "Random! Brilliant!" lol. She admitted to me later that she already knew!! American Boyfriend had said something to her ages ago about him being her real brother when he came back to England. She said she thought they'd forgotten as it is now so close to LMS coming home!! Little Prince woke up and came in to see me and have a cuddle and I told him, he was thrilled that American Boyfriend is now his real brother, but wishes he wasn't "a in-law brother, just a brother" so I told him he could call him his brother if he wanted to, which pleased him :-)
Mr Messy admitted he was upset and that he would have loved to have been there and photographed it obviously. He was hugging Poorly Princess a few minutes later and said to her "you won't run off and leave me will you?" I think his Daddy heart is hurting :-( Later he said that it was my job to wear a hat and his to walk her down the aisle, and that he was sad, very sad and hurt :-( He has been sad and non communicative all day, said his day was cr*p and has ended up with a headache. When LMS rang up to talk to us, he said he didn't want to talk to her right now. When she and I were talking about their plans to have a Vow Renewal and family party on their 1st or 2nd Anniversary, Mr Messy was muttering that it wasn't the same, she was already married and it just wasn't the same. He's hurting badly and unfortunately it will take him a long time to come to terms with the way this has happened :-(
I came downstairs and re-read LMS's email properly, and agree with her she is old enough to make her own decisions and decide the course of her life. And this does save them a lot of money in Visa fees and airline fares. Of course I'm sad that my first baby got married without me there, but I am also happy that she is so happy. She and American Boyfriend look deliriously happy in the photographs she sent :-) And my baby looks so beautiful, the most beautiful bride ever of course :-)
~*~ CONGRATULATIONS MR AND MRS LMS ~*~
