Its been a mildly stressful week. With the emphasis on mildy. Myself and the betrothed had decided on the venue for next year's wedding last Sunday, only to discover over the course of the following week that the coordinators were incompetent in the extreme. From a state of blissful finality, that feeling of nagging uncertainty and, how you say, "up in the air"-ness had returned. Thank the Supreme Being that we were spending the week alone in the relaxing luxury of the parents-in-law-to-be's manor (whilst the parents-in-law-to-be were away on holiday)... I think we'd have ripped the paint off our own more-enclosing walls in frustration.
Seven days down the line, and with several more locations cased out, things are looking more hopeful. And at least I'll have more material for the inviteable "Starbuck's Weddings in Warwickshire guide".
I know that we always want the best for these things, but its annoying how something so positive can be so stressful. And I know its been stressful, because I've carried out a stress test. And failed.
You can try it yourself. Details are below:
Please read the following before looking at the picture.
The following picture was used in a case study on stress level at St.Mary's Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water.
Both dolphins are identical.
The researchers concluded that a person is under stress if he/she finds the dolphins look different. If there are many differences found between the dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a great amount of stress.
So, if you see too many differences between the two dolphins, you are advised to pack your bag, go home immediately and take a rest.
