A wee marriage announcement 4, November 2010

Posted by thegulfblog.com in Random.

Dear loyal readers, casual observers and those here by mistake,

It is customary in the UK (as elsewhere, I suppose) to publicly announce one’s marriage. Ordinarily, this is done in the form of a short announcement in a newspaper. Yet which one to choose? The Daily Mail: I’d be divorced before I got married. The Times: getting far too right-wing these days. The Guardian: pinko lefties only, me thinks. The Sun: not so much.

Essentially, it’s a difficult choice. Yet I’m a twenty-first century kind of person, or at least I try to be. Hence [one might well ask how ‘twenty first century’ I can be using words like ‘hence’ but anyway] I hereby announce my marriage to my beloved better half this Saturday in (hopefully) sunny North London.

Here’s hoping I can get the ring on her finger before she changes her mind.

Best to all.


PS. I think this one definitely goes under the category ‘random’

Congratulations David, and Mrs David
Best thing I ever did, though now occasionally encouraged to eat green-coloured food, strangely my waistline seems to have rebelled

2. Matthew Chamberlin - 4, November 2010

Congratulations! Best of luck to you and the (new) Mrs.

Elf Mabrook my friend. It is just a shame that it isn’t during Eid, so that I could come crash it.

Thanks one and all for the kind words. I’m sure it’ll be a great day and I will pass on the thoughts to my much better half.
