I’ll carry on living in denial until I feel ready to grow up

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

VERITY LUSH: Don’t blame gran for kids munching on e-numbers

Have your say

Everyone told me before we got married that once the big day and honeymoon was over, we’d come crashing down to reality.

To be honest, it was quite stressful in the lead-up to the wedding for one reason or another, so I didn’t quite believe them – until now that is.

As people keep pointing out to me, I am actually older than I feel and it’s about time I realised it!

Of course life goes on and yet I find myself wanting to do it all over again.

I think it’s just hit me this week that its all over for good. I’m just a wife now. Ha ha, only joking Matt – well, kind of!

To be honest we don’t feel any different being married.

Although everyone keeps telling us that is perfectly normal, I do wonder whether we should feel something different.

But I feel exactly the same as I did when I was ‘just’ his fiancée – other than the fact I am now a Mrs, which I must admit is a little weird.

I don’t feel old enough to be a wifey but, as people keep pointing out to me, I am actually older than I feel and it’s about time I realised it!

Sod them, I say – you’re as old as you feel and I still feel about 25, so I will carry on living in denial until I feel ready to grow up.

I keep telling everyone that Matt and I are going to have a one-year anniversary party and that way I get to wear my dress again (if I can fit into it by then that is).

My sister, Michelle, told me she was emigrating if I did that. But I just don’t get it.

I mean, I was the least Bridezilla of brides on the planet as far as I was concerned.

Although Michelle was my maid of honour, so perhaps she’ll tell a different story.

To end, I really want to say a big thank you to Phyliss Waterman from Fareham, who has written in a couple of times to send us her good wishes and I really appreciate that.

I never take my readers for granted and am genuinely overwhelmed by all the support we’ve had in the run-up to our wedding

I know I do go on, so thank you for bearing with me and I promise not to bang on for the next six months about our wedding!

Honest....
