I had scones and bangers for brekkie, and cucumber sandwiches with crisps for lunch. I'm worn out from chinwagging with fellow anglophiles about the grand wedding day of the brilliant pair, Wills and Kate. Wasn't that dress spot on for a newly minted Royal Highness? Sigh.
I'm taken back nearly 30 years ago to my own wedding day. It was in 1981 that Diana Spencer and I both became engaged and wed the men of our dreams in July.
I wore polyester for the engagement photo
I wore a dress made by my favorite designer, my Mum
We drove an old Audi with broken air conditioning and a 300 hp engine that subtracted 95 carbon credits each time my handsome new husband hit the gas pedal.
This year we are celebrating 30 years of nuptial bliss (Which, incidentally was the phrase permanently emblazoned on our beautifully decorated Audi hood with menthol shaving cream during our reception).
My wish for this new royal couple is for a married life as full as ours; full of new babies, flat tires, crying at night and laughing in the morning, staying at home, traveling, fighting, making up... sorrows and joys all borne together. Cheers!
