A Royal Wedding

There is a great deal of talk about the royal wedding between Kate and William. There are people that want to watch it and those that do not.

I am going to come out and say that I will be watching it with Mark. I am currently trying to decide which television channel is going to give the best coverage. We can technically record two channels and watch another live so realistically we can choose 3!!

My reasons for watching this wedding are all around my memories of Charles and Diana’s wedding and also because I really love weddings. And no I am not a royalist.

I was 6 years old when Charles and Diana were married and I was awestruck by how beautiful Diana was. It was talked about thoroughly in my classroom and I even had a scrapbook of cuttings from all the magazines and newspapers. I kept this scrapbook for years and would go through it over and over again.

So watching this wedding will be thoroughly enjoyable and I am a bit excited about it. But this time I probably won’t make a scrapbook; as I already have a general wedding one. Yes, I am a bit obsessed with weddings and pretty things.

After reading Kez’s blog today; I have decided that Mark and I can make it a really fun evening. So we will have scones with jam and fresh cream and either some tea or a fresh pot of coffee. Might even go hard out and have a "pint".
I will probably tweet the odd thing; however I fully appreciate that a lot of other people will be doing the same. So out of respect for those that are not interested in the wedding I will not even come close to flooding your timeline; you might get a smattering of tweets. Perhaps some of you will remember that when you tweet about the Rugby World Cup later in the year.


  1. We are going to watch it for sure. Neither of us are particularly interested as such, but I think it's one of those historical things. I'm looking forward to it! I probably would have been very lukewarm about it but I watch The King's Speech a couple of weeks ago, and it warmed me up to the Royals.

  2. I will watch by myself Chris will be asleep he has work I can't blame him. Was thinking of ways to try and make it exciting for me and the Cat.

  3. Oh hey, thanks for the shout out!!! :)
    I limited myself to no more than 10 tweets about the wedding and I didn't tweet live (it gets a little obnoxious unless you're super witty)!
    I hope you had heaps of fun. My family loved my scones so I am now the baking champ of the family haha.
