After reading Victoria's thread about her Nana it got me thinking about how generous the geeks are on this site, wink wink can you see where I'm going with this one.:lol:

Victoria among many others contributes a lot to this site and has many of us in laughter and tears with her journal.
As you all may know by now (and if you dont where have you been??lol) Victoria is getting married and one of her wishes is to have M&S humbugs in her favours.
I personally will be sending Victoria a bag of M&S humbugs for her wedding day, to give her hugs from her Nana on her special day and I thought it would be a lovely idea if we could all send her a bag each to make her day.

Normally I wouldnt have posted this for her to read and would have asked for volunteers to an unknown project, but I dont want Victoria to go off and spend a small fortune on something else that isnt going to make her day.

This is in no way a beg for Victoria, take part dont take part that's the lovely thing about freedom of choice. If you are taking part though can you post your name on the thread so Victoria knows how many to expexct and when to tell us to stop!:lol:

Victoria's aiming for a June wedding, I will be sending them asap so they get there with plenty of time to spare.
Apparently they keep well in the freezer, as long as her mum has the key to the padlock!!:lol:

Just went through half a box of kleenex!
I thought this thread was a repeat of a blog post, so I didn't glance as I'd already had my chuckles.
Chuckles and tears in one day AND a parcel.

I'm overwhelmed to say the least.
I just got off the phone with my Mum, to tell her what BEAUTIFUL friends I have in the UK. I said to her "how fantastic is it, that people I've never met, who are from Nana's home, are helping me with my wedding? Doing this HUGE and WONDERFUL thing for me?" I said "between Nana's dress, Nana's Cameo, her wedding band AND the humbugs.. Nana IS going to be there, on my wedding day" Then I started howling all over again and my mother said to cut it out as she couldn't understand a word I was saying.:cry::lol:

Crap, brb, I've started tearing up again...

Ok, it's me again. More kleenex in the trash.

I've planned on scanning a picture of my Nana in her wedding dress, and placing it at a chair at my table at my wedding.
BUT I've had another thought.
I would also like to make a collage of all the lovely faces of geeks I know, and place THAT picture at a chair as well.
So that you ALL may have a place at my wedding and so EVERYONE knows who, what and why.

Thank you, all of you. For EVERYTHING. For the links to where I can get humbugs, for your kind words, for listening to me prattle on in nonsense, and for SO VERY MUCH MORE. Thank you, thank you, thank you....etc.. yes, thank you AGAIN.

I love you like family:!::Love:.

So please, even if you don't send humbugs, if you would like to be at my wedding, PLEASE send me your picture for my collage. Don't worry about cropping or anything, I can take care of that.
It's the thoughts and kind words that count, but of course, I DO appreciate the humbugs too LOL do NOT get me wrong.

My...... I am a VERY spoiled and VERY lucky geek indeed, to be able to count all of you as my friends.
Everyone should be so rich as I am, to be surrounded by so very many loving people
