Y is for Yay...
...for the royal wedding! Even now, there are people grumbling about the expense, the fact that we're stuck in the dark ages, that it's all silly, a waste of time etc etc. But I think that anything that cheers (lots of ) people up, brings us together, boosts tourism, makes (some of) us feel patriotic, gives us a chance to wheel out the coaches and the soldiers and the fly-pasts (ts ts - all that wasted fuel) has to be good. Devizes has sold out of canapes, and also red white and blue flowers, and there are flags hanging from windows. My mad daughter has gone completely overboard with enough bunting to cloak an entire village, union jack plates, a quiz (what's so-and-so going to be wearing. That kind of thing), and we're going to join her.
So here's to a wonderful day. And for those who really aren't interested, there's some very dull-looking daytime TV. Or you can always go for a walk.
