Royal Wedding day

Well, we had to do something to mark it – even it was just the title of today’s blog!  I am sitting here, watching the highlights on BBC America and thinking that it would have been nice to be at home and join in celebrations, but failing that, it is great to have the evening to myself and indulge watching it… love the BBC!
