For Harry and Meghan's big day I made sure the front room was decked out with bunting.
My old floral Primark scarf was put to good use draped across the window
and my wardrobe choices when getting dressed this morning were red, white and blue, just like they were back in April 2011.
Unlike William and Kate's wedding this one wasn't going to be shown on a big TV screen in our city centre so it was at home G and I settled down with some nibbles to watch the nuptials.
I made a lovely refreshing drink by mixing
100ml lime cordial
300ml apple and raspberry juice drink
one bottle of 750ml elderflower and rose
and to finish off I made a variation on these eclairs using vanilla whipped cream.
The whole day was joyful, it was what weddings should be about, full of love and optimism. May they have a life full of happiness.
