Beautiful days....


So, who watched the Royal Wedding? I have to say, i loved it. What a beautiful couple. What a fab day to be British. I know a lot of anti-monarchists but as a History graduate - i love the monarchy. The century-old traditions, the pomp and circumstance. My highlights were seeing the dress, the balcony scene, the view of all the people down The Mall (i love London) and then when they drove to Clarence House together in the Aston Martin, what a lovely modern twist!

I celebrated by having some friends round for a Royal Wedding tea party. There were also 4 toddlers and a newborn baby so we didn't get much peace to watch, but it was good fun. I even got the Denby teaseat out which i havent used since i got it as a wedding gift over 7 years ago lol I watched the ceremony again at night in peace and quiet when it was just me and a cup of tea!

So, what else has been happening?? We had a lovely Easter weekend last week. We finally bought a bike trailer for Caleb and got to use it last weekend. He loved it. We're hoping to go out again today seeing as another sunny weekend is forecast (yeah!)
On Easter Sunday we had a bbq after church, then we made our hard boiled eggs, decorated them in 30seconds and had good fun rolling them down the hill to see who's would smash up first. Im not sure who/if anyone else does this?? We always did it as kids. I (think) it's to symbolise the rolling away of the tomb? Anyway, the dog got mine lol
Thank-you for all the congrats on my pregnancy. I have good days and bad days. I havent stitched at all, it makes me feel really nauseous but i remember that from last time and it did pass. I havent been sick yet today so maybe things are turning round....it is only 8.20am though lol

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend (boy do i appreciate these now im working fulltime)!!!

Hopefully the sickness will pass soon. Sometimes I get really broody but then I give myself a slap lol and tell myself we have no more room!! I did watch the wedding and wasn't it fab? I am sort of anti monarchy but I couldn't help but shed half a tear anyway lol. x

I enjoyed watching the wedding too. I only managed to reach the point where she made it to the altar and then I had to leave for work. I hurried home from work in order to watch the reruns of the ceremony. Wasn't the lace on her gown gorgeous!!
I'm excited because their first official visit will be to Canada this July. They'll be in Ottawa on Canada Day. Perhaps we'll join the throngs in getting a glimpse!

I only watched enough of the wedding to see the dress and it was so beautiful.

Hopefully you have hit the turning point with your morning sickness. I do hope that you are feeling better now.

I am happy to say that I met my goal and have finished the first block in the alphabet series. I will try and post a picture in the next few days.

Great post. Loved the wedding although it was 4.a.m. here. But we wore out hats (GD and I, her brother wore a hoodie as he was cold-still cold here)Loved the dress, the carriage ride back to Buck House, and seeing all the family in their wedding attire. Yes, we roll the eggs down the hill and break them...looking for a nice big rock at thebottom. Glad yu got a break from the FT hours...it will all change!! Enjoy.
