With almost every day a Bank Holiday at the moment, I don't quite know where I am this week. It's completely confusing!!! Whatever the day, yesterday was wonderful! I really enjoyed the Royal Wedding (Woyal Redding as My Boy called it) from the comfort of the sofa with only a few annoying interruptions from the little ones - typically just as the couple were saying their vows.
Wonderful music, trees INSIDE Westminster Abbey, beautiful dresses, a very happy looking couple (I loved the way William was looking at Kate - like the cat who got the cream) and the pomp and ceremony befitting the wedding of our future King. I know it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I LOVED it.
Afterwards we headed outside to join our fabulous neighbours in a Street Party. Well more of a Cul-de-sac Party really, but it was perfect. We are one of five families in our little nook and it worked brilliantly - the entrance was closed so the children could play freely and we all enjoyed a proper "tea", complete with sandwiches, Pimm's, Champagne, jam & cream scones, music (mostly good, although Kylie & Jason somehow managed to SNEAK in!) and lots of flags and bunting.
We haven't been here long and don't know the other families very well, so this was also a perfect opportunity to chat and for the children to all play together. Wonderful.
This morning I got an unexpected and unwelcome lesson in wool felting when I came home from Body Balance to realise that the Mini-Me Rainbow Cardi I made for Little Miss had been in the regular machine wash. Too much laundry and too little attention *sob*
It's now a tiny felted short-sleeved jacket, perhaps another gift for my friend's newborn...?
I am so gutted to have done this *shakes head* - she wore this a lot and it looked lovely on her. The yarn (Lion Brand Amazing Aurora) isn't available in the UK and I'd paid to have it shipped from Malta, so I will have to wait until I need to get something else that will justify the shipping costs - hardly worth it for one ball.
In the meantime she will now need an alternative "wear with anything" cardigan so I'd best get onto it!
Hope you have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing.
