I love the Brits when they are in celebrating mode! They will organize things in a simple and cheery way and will turn up wanting to have a good time. All other issues will stay at home.
Yesterday was one of these days. Prince William married his college sweethart which gave the nation an extra bank holiday and a reason to bring their flags out!
We watched the wedding at home with a nice pot of coffe and treats and then headed to the local park.
The invitation asked for kids to be dressed in a Royal Fancy Dress and everyone to bring a dish for all to share along with picnic chairs and equipment. The sense of community was really strong and made it real special!
So, we played and drunk and ate and saw some familiar faces and it was a lovely day! But the celebrations didn’t stop. Today is a day full of celebratory activities in the local stores and shops. The mood is great especially since this is a 4 day weekend! Our boy went royally mad on the bouncy castle and even at home when he decided to stand on a chair and wave out of the window to all passing by. I had my British earings on my mediterranean face, and it was great, that it didn’t feel weird. There were so many people from all backgrounds wearing the flag that made it special. As if we had all been embrassed by this country and there was space for us all.
So, here’s to the happy couple!
and as a friend said on twitter “Congrats to Kate and William! Good luck from now on..!”
