It's been such a long time since I've updated my PJ, it's sooo bad of me! For ages it hasn't really felt as though I've had anything worth writing about as we've been stuck at the decision making stages. But there have been A LOT of big changes in our lives over the last month or so that's having an affect on the wedding so I guess it's time for an update. So last time I updated we had the ceremony booked for SBP, I was thinking about booking Sago Cay, I had my shoes and my dress was on order. We were also in the early stages of planning our at home reception. Well, unfortunately in the last few weeks we've had to cancel plans for the at home reception. We've been thinking about setting up our own business for quite a while but Spencer had a few concerns about finding clients, giving up his current job etc so it was in the "we'll do it some day" category. Then all of a sudden, completely out of the blue a potential client came to us with an offer we couldn't refuse! And then news started to get round and another client came forward with the offer for around 4 jobs a month . So at this point we finally decided to go for it, it was going to mean a few months of stress and a couple of months without an income during the transition stage, but it's not every day an opportunity like this falls in to your lap! We'd be stupid to turn down such an offer. It did however mean that the garden party had to be canceled. Spencers employer was very kindly going to contribute towards the cost as a gift but of course we couldn't accept such a generous offer if Spencer was about to resign! And knowing that there would be a couple of months without an income we decided it made more sense to keep some of our savings back to make sure we could survive. Sure I was kind of disappointed, but setting up the company had such huge potential that it had to take priority over the at home reception. So the company was set up and Spencer handed in his resignation. Then it all started to go wrong The client offering to match his salary started to screw with us, his employers went absolutely nuts when they found out they were losing him and it all seemed to be crumbling beneath us. Sure we could still afford to get married, but it was looking like we'd be pretty broke afterward if we couldn't find new clients. I cannot even begin to tell you how shocked I was when Spencers employers came back and said they were so upset about potentially losing him that they were willing to match the offer of the client who was giving us problems! AND we've since had 3 other potential clients approach us wanting to give us regular work! It's still early days as yet as Spencer is still working his notice before making the switch to working for them on a self employed basis, but there's a very real possibility that we're going to end up with more work than we're able to handle! It's an amazing position to be in and I truly am grateful we've been given such an amazing opportunity, but the timing sure sucks! If this all happened six months ago, or if we could delay the wedding it wouldn't be so bad, but it's been a whole heap of stress that I could do without right now! Oh and did I mention that this all started 1 week in to me giving up smoking?! How I haven't snapped and murdered someone yet I'll never know. Time for a cup of tea before I carry on I think!
