The Big Day
Well it's finally taken place, after weeks of preparation and the unfortunate hype, the wedding of the century took place earlier today. Although I class myself as a romantic, I didn't watch all of it, but Gail was transfixed and was snapping away with her camera. She moaned now and then when either the SD card was full or the battery died, as she didn't want to miss the special bits; especially when Kate and William kissed for the first time on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Afterwards we went into Nottingham to collect her order from Marks and Spencer's and to see if there was anything still going on. Alas it was all quiet except for a few skateboarders and a group of Emo's messing about in the Old Market Square. Unfortunately we had missed some classic cars that were there earlier in the day. So missed possibly a good photo opportunity. Looking in the windows of some of the closed shops on Wheelergate, I spotted this slightly tacky advertising for a special offer that they were running, which they were shamelessly cashing in on the royal romance. I don't however think that Kate would be too happy with the arrangement, if it had happened in real life!
