    Actually considering eloping... But still don't think I could do it. Plus to do anything like that I need a job and I just cannot get one. Just depressing myself, really.
    Need to think about other things.

    I know I'm not the poster girl for it but eloping was actually really awesome. And my friend did the elope to Vegas thing which was way cool as well and pretty affordable...

    So grateful to my Dad and his partner. They bought DS1'S whole school uniform today. 3 shirts, 3 shorts, jumper and hat for $168! We've been struggling with money because DF doesn't budget correctly, they didn't know this just offered to do it.

    Just for giggles, if you were going to elope where would you go to do it?
    Would you tell/invite anyone like a destination wedding you hope people don't come to? Or really elope and tell everyone when you got back?
    @Awesome Queen of Amazingtown how did you do it?

    @Awesome Queen of Amazingtown how did you do it?
    Well this is what I was considering. I was thinking take the kids to qld and go to dreamworld, then to a nice relaxing location an elope there and then tell everyone when we got home. But that's not really cool. I want my family there, even if I don't really want anyone else. Well, df's sisters. That's about it. And I would still need thousands to do it.
    So then I think, stay closer to home, say we are having a party and if you can come that's great, don't stress if you can't and then spring the wedding on the guests at the party. Two of df's mates have done that. Which is still a lovely idea, but either way, I would still need money for it.
    There is no two ways about it- even if I were to do the second option, I would still want a photographer, my hair and makeup done and a nice dress (even if it isn't a full blown gown) plus new clothes for the kids, plus celebrant, marriage licence, venue hire and food etc etc.

    Bottom line is I need to go back to work. This is the route of all our problems. Or maybe if I dig deeper its the actual education system itself, where a highly qualified and motivated teacher is begging for work and can not find a single job while unqualified and inexperienced nits walk out of uni and into the classroom with no idea what they're doing. (And yes, I know I was once a nit, but at least 50% but I would say more of all jobs advertised locally are for graduates, and another 40% to level 1, and another 8% is for specialist positions... What chance do I have when only 2% of jobs advertised I can apply for, and no doubt I'm not the only one in this position?!)

    Errr... And here endeth my rant

    Don't feel bad. Took me 8 years to get that ring, have had it for a year and am no closer to being married.
