Flags and bunting are fluttering all over the place; the country is going down with wedding fever! Even I have succumbed and bought some Union Jack paper serviettes (from Lidl. Hey, big spender.)
For most women I'm sure that the main area of interest is THE DRESS.
I confidently predict that it will not be a meringue but something sleek, heavy satin perhaps, with a long train, and Kate will look as elegant as a Singer Sargent portrait.
My wedding dress, which is well on its way to being half a century old, is made of cotton broderie anglais. I bought it in John Lewis for the princely sum of £25.
We had our wedding reception and dance in this castle, which was very tumbledown at the time, but wonderful.
On Friday night the village is going to have a party.
What shall I wear?
'Terrier', woodcarving, Peter Murphy.
Along with the sale of flags and bunting there are some very good offers on bottles of champagne -which I bought.
I think that we are going to have a lot of fun!
