Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

The waiting game

Rainbow bidesmaid dresses. Nice idea. If I EVER make it
to this point

Why am I waiting on people to give me simple answers to simple questions?

The most annoying by far is waiting for the administrator at my church of choice to respond to my emails and phone calls and let me know that the date I have requested to get married is available. How hard can that be?

I called the church and spoke to the administrator about a month ago. I had a lovely conversation with her (my middle daughter had been christened at this church two years previously), so there is a bit of history.

Anyway the conversation was pleasant and she informed me that she'd be in touch within a week or so to confirm we could have our date and to chase her up if I hadn't heard from her. Well needless to say I didn't hear anything despite leaving a few voicemail messages, so I called again a few days later and managed to speak to her. The conversation went a bit like this:

'Hi there, it's Natalie. I enquired about getting married at your church next spring. Did you receive my email and voicemail messages as requested?'

'Yes, I'm in a meeting.'

'Ok, well could you let me know when I'm likely to hear from you?'

'I'll reply to you?'

At this point she just wanted to get me off the phone. She was abrupt and I hate to say a tad rude. I really do not like this kind of treatment. It just irritates me. You said you were going to do something, and you didn't. So I chase you as requested then I seem to get attitude. I don't get it.

I'm at the point where I don't want to keep chasing, because she may be rude again and I'll end up saying something about it. Relations will go sour and I'll end up cutting off my nose to spite my face and decide not to bother with that church. And it's a lovely church.

I guess I just need to be patient. But everything is at a standstill yet again. All things wedding has gone quiet in this household. AGAIN. *huff*

Is it normal for wedding planning to be so stop, start, yes, no, up, down and around the houses?
