Hello! Today is going to be about just one thing, the good excuse to have a party and the AMAZING effort my Parents-in-Law went to, to decorate their home with all things red, white, blue and patriotic, last Friday, that famous day of the Royal wedding.
Alan and Susan (my parents-in-Law), went all out on getting things to create a fantastic atmosphere. They went to a huge effort, and I think the success of our day wasn't down to watching the wedding on t.v. so much as the tremendous party Alan and Susan put on for us all.
Can you see the copy of the engagement ring I'm wearing in the picture above? I love it!
I found out much later that I'd drunk far too much sparkly stuff. The older I get, the less resistance I have to getting a headache when I drink alcohol. I do like a bit of bubbly though, don't you?!
Susan did a tremendous job keeping us well fed with yummy food, Alan did a great job of topping up our glasses, and Cassie (Hugo's Niece) did a fantastic job making a biscuit fridge cake, the one that is meant to be Prince William's favourite cake, and was apparently at the wedding breakfast.
There were ten humans and three dogs all watching the ceremony on the t.v.
I took my knitting with me, but ended up being so fascinated by the extraordinary spectacle on the television I didn't touch my knitting.
All those happy faces! Wonderful to see, and nice to enter into the spirit of it all. There's something very joyful about being happy along with millions of other people, I really enjoyed that.
Kate looked so beautiful didn't she? I'd been thinking about what style of wedding dress she might wear, that morning, and I thought the Grace Kelly lace and simplicity would look beautiful on her, so imagine how strange it felt when I saw her wearing something reminiscent of Grace Kelly's wedding dress.
Yes, what a lovely day, thank you so much Alan and Susan, for making it something extra special.
Douglas, my dear darling Douglas, was pretty much stuck to Hugo or myself the whole day. He's terrified of children, it might have something to do with a child grabbing his nose and twisting it when he was very little.
I don't know if you know the blog 'coffee with a canine'? Well, Ellie and Douglas were approached a few weeks ago, about starring on that blog, and you can see the results here. It's a short interview.
Righty-ho, I'm going to have a little walk in the evening sunshine now, I haven't been out all day. Hugo's away sailing for a week with three other lads, on the West Coast of Scotland, so my days are to be run to my own rythmn, which is actually just working, and more work. I'm missing Hugo.
Cheerio then! Love Vanessa xxx
