Time

seems to be whizzing past at the moment - maybe something to do with the long, extended weekends - who's to complain at that?!



Our weekend started on Thursday afternoon following a school picnic.  All the children came home with wedding cake, Union Jack hat, flag, and mug with the happy couple on the front, the date, and school name on the reverse.  A lovely touch I thought.



Friday gave me the perfect opportunity to sit down for the entire day, something I very rarely do, and embrace the Royal Wedding in all it's glory.  It was wonderful to see London looking lovely and everyone enjoying the day.  The country needed a little boost and that was it.



Whilst sitting, I managed to get some bunting made, aptly named 'Happy Days'

Quite appropriate I thought!

Lots more to share later on in the week - hopefully normality may resume at some stage!

I loved Friday - everyone seemed happy and enjoying themselves.

MrVV & I watched for hours - accompanied by Pimms & nibbles :)

It's been a fantastic uplift this Royal Wedding! Even my normally not-remotely-interested-in-the-royal-family husband has been caught up in it - watching it on iplayer after his release from hospital, reading the Hello magazine I bought from cover to cover and still commenting on it now! Your bunting is great by the way!

Whizzing by is an understatement! What a lovely gift from the school

It sounds like the school celebrated the national occasion really nicely. We had some great worksheets in our school. My favourite was a maths one which worked had the children working out the perimeters of some imaginary flower beds at Buckingham Palace! x

I thought I wasn't that bothered, but I found myself sitting with my daughter poring over Hello and looking at all the frocks and hats!
