As the Australian leg of the wedding odyssey rapidly approaches, it’s The Mothership’s turn to get the Wedding Fever. While she has a more relaxed approach than the Motherinlawship for the Scottish one, she’s still a stickler for details. Because weddings are all about details. She came up with the idea of decorating the cake with some wattle and a thistle to symbolise the union of the Aussie and the Jock. I scrounged up a thistle and assumed we’d just yank a sprig of wattle off a tree on the way to the party, but I received this memo instead:
SUBJECT: Photo and Size of Thistle
Good evening to you both
Could you email photo of thistle (put something next to it that I would know for size comparison) and write the dimensions of thistle in the Email – we need to get the wattle the same size to represent your partnership with Gareth.
(Don’t kill me Ma! Couldn’t resist this one!)
