The Royal Wedding and Me.

I posted about this earlier, had no responses but going to try it anyway.

We all remember where we were and what we were doing during historical events. I wasn't alive when Prince Charles and Princess Diana got married but love hearing conversations from my family about where they were and what they were doing.
As us bloggers are a wide spread lot, and all seem to have different plans for today I thought it might be quite nice for us to collate what we were all doing in one place [ie my blog!]

I'm not a Royalist, my husband kind of is. My husband works for himself and gave himself the day off to watch, decided he wanted us to get bunting and flags, although this eventually meant, due to our rubbish planning, that I was hunting Asda for flags, bunting etc to no avail and then hunting Co-Op where I found some bunting. Brilliant.
We wanted to have a day of "typically British food". Starting off with crumpets, lunch of cucumber sandwiches and scones with clotted cream, jam and strawberries, and as I blog my husband is cooking us a Roast dinner.
My husband is drinking Cava and after the ceremony took Charles on a trip to our local Tesco Express [walking of course] to pick himself up a second bottle to replace the empty first one!

We sat and watched the wedding at home. Just me, my husband and Charles. My husband was telling Charles who each of the members of the Royal family were, and they were loving watching all of the cars arrive and looking at the "nee-naw bikes" whilst I bawled my eyes out at the first site of Prince William and Prince Harry.

I absolutely loved watching the ceremony, although almost missed the balcony kiss due to washing my hair. Oops!

As I said, I'm not a Royalist, but I think its wonderful how we've all come together to celebrate this amazing event. And, I think its great that we have a Monarchy.

I was surprised at the lack of flags and bunting as I drove into town this morning although loved this which I spotted on my drive home:


These are some photos from our little celebration:
