Right Royal Escape
Well I admit it… I watched.
The Wedding, that is.
I am no full-on royalist, but I have to say, this Good News Story kinda sucked me in. A little bit of happy amid tornadoes and floods and cyclones and tsunamis. I think we all needed it.
Of course, I was on my own watching it all unfold. The kids were in bed (although Violet did pop out a few times to check on The Princess) and Mr Incredible was detirmindly watching an action movie in another room. I didn’t mind. I took my chardonnay glass, my Thai takeaway and curled up on the couch to soak in some royal bliss.
I have to say my very favourite part was the horse-drawn carriage ride through the streets… Horse, Handsome Princes and Happy Princesses. Gorgeous!
But I missed this bit where a rider took a dive and the horse bolted past the newlyweds… how I feel for that rider!

But who can blame them for freaking slightly at this sight… am pretty sure no Granite Glen horses would hold their stuff together looking out at (and hearing) this ocean of well-wishing humans.
And of course there was The Kiss.
(The two kisses actually – practice makes perfect William! God love that flowergirl who had had enough of the din…)
Kinda made me feel all sentimental and romanical. (Is that a word? Should be.)
It helped that we had attended a lovely wedding the previous weekend…
And memories from other fantastical weddings I have attended over the years came floating back…
and of course it made me think of our own wedding, a decade ago…
We had no horse-drawn carriage of course, and a few gazillion less looking on. But I did have a pretty hawt bridesmaid, just like Kate.
Now I have to drag myself away from happy photos, and go and clean mouse-poo from all corners of my house. I don’t want to, I want to stay in a wedding haze right here. But the face is that we have a little mouse plague situation here, and that mouse poo ain’t gonna clean itself. *sigh*
While I am busy making this house smell acceptable again, please tell me:
Did you watch The Royal Wedding?
If so, what did you think?
If not, why? (Hope the reason wasn’t tornado-related, my American friends?)
