Yeah I know you’re all monarchists around here. I bet earwicga already has the bunting in her house done, and the Union Jacks flying.

I wonder how many people will be planning to get drunk just to spare themselves the pain of Royal wedding coverage? I’m looking at you Douglas Clark and Leon. Any plans for the long weekend?

    Won’t be watching but at party in neighbour’s field.

    Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

    Weather looks good, long walk with some friends and some wine&snacks along Rowley Burn for a pub lunch in Allendale. Then play it by ear.

    Sunny,

    I expect I’ll deliver a few leaflets for the SNP. I don’t know how you can all stand the sheer excitement of it all ;-) .

    Have a good weekend one and all.

    because it’s sweet. (And relevant.)

    I won’t watch it – well, maybe just a little bit if someone else is … I was rather shocked to catch my teenage son watching a programme about the Middletons in his room – he looked suitably guilty.

    Ironically I could watch it as although there are no Bank Holidays where I am I’m taking some time out to study.

    But I won’t – the time is too precious.

    However, I can’t say I wish them ill, because, dammit, although I’m not a fan of the monarchy (nor agin it neither) they do seem a nice couple…

    Ha! I have actually :)

    We’re going to a street party in the afternoon, then off to see Cerys Matthews in the evening.

    To be fair, Prince Thingy seems to be gainfully employed and less thick than the average Royal. I have no antipathy towards them and best of luck as a couple. But I feel the same way about the couple up the way.

    sarah – excellent pic :)

    earwicga – I knew it!

    Walking in the Peak District miles from any TV screen

    Looks like Charlie Veitch is going to miss the big day. Shame.

    Unionists in west Belfast are holding a wedding party and have given an open invitation for their Nationalist neighbours to come over and join them.
    I’ll go down there and have a look.
    Don’t know how many people will take them up on the offer though.

    You’re banned mates are back again. That worked didn’t it? They have a count down to the royal wedding in pride of place on their site. Sounds like they are intending to avoid bombings rather than protest this time. A bit of duck and cover. That’s pretty much what I feel like doing.

  13. John Christopher — on 28th April, 2011 at 10:23 pm  

    I’ll be taking my “new” Toyota LC100 Landcruiser Amazon for a drive out in the countryside and getting as far away as possible from this state sponsored happyfest.

    I’m rehearsing a play about domestic violence.

    Sitting in a vast flat in Cairo, drinking Egyptian Stella beer, avoiding Royal Weddings, Friday Prayers and anything else that others think I should be doing with my normal Friday off.

    Like it or not, it’s a historic occasion, and for that reason alone, it is worth observing it. The sheer logistics and organisation of it fascinates me – a deeply disorganised person. In addition, I can’t resist a bit of schadenfreude. When the left sees how remote are the inclinations of the wayward hoi polloi in such numbers, from what is historically expected of them, it must make them seethe, and even reflect a bit. And I say that as someone who has no particular brief for the monarchy one way or another.

    This morning I took the decision the change my internet “Home”page from the BBC to Al Jazeera, in a last ditch effort to escape the happy police. 10 minutes of normality was then followed by 20 minutes of rubbish dressed up a pomp and ceremony. Saints preserve us!

  18. damon — on 29th April, 2011 at 11:17 am  

    As a republican more or less, I still like events like this. And I like to see the people in the crowds being interviewed on TV. All the people from overseas who are in such a nice friendly happy zone. No one is being unpleasant and threatening. The people around them can be trusted and they are really enjoying it.
    That’s good in my book.

    I heard that the reason there were so many street parties in the south east compared to the north was that they are in posh places like Richmond. Not Walthamstow terraced streets like they were for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. That’s not so good.

  19. douglas clark — on 29th April, 2011 at 5:40 pm  

    Is it safe to come out yet?

  20. AbuF — on 29th April, 2011 at 9:07 pm  

    What royal wedding?

  21. KJB — on 30th April, 2011 at 11:38 pm  

    I watched Kate’s drive to the ceremony and arrival in the church at breakfast, then had a filmathon with friends… including this site’s arch-monarchist! ;)

    royal wedding who cares the flippin lazy scroungers

  23. Don — on 1st May, 2011 at 4:59 pm  

    That’s bit unfair Jamal. William seems to be holding down a decent job, so ‘lazy’ is just random abuse. He certainly doesn’t need to live on his salary, so ‘scrounger’ is probably fair enough. There’s a point to be argued.

    With a few moments thought you might have made a worthwhile comment there. What were the chances of that happening, though?

  24. jamal — on 1st May, 2011 at 5:23 pm  

    royal family are the biggest scroungers going, i see many people like having a go at people on benefits well have a go at the biggest benefit takers of the bunch!

  25. earwicga — on 1st May, 2011 at 6:18 pm  

    Cerys Matthews was fantastic. If you get the chance to see her live then do! Better than her recorded voice bizarrely.

  26. Trofim — on 1st May, 2011 at 7:16 pm  

    By the way, isn’t the hawthorn blossom wonderful this year? I drove from my home village in Worcestershire to Brum, and every foot of the way was a foaming mass of may blossom along the side of the roads and the air was filled with its lovely creamy fragrance. Mind you, it’s starting to feel a bit reminiscent of 1976 in terms of rainfall. Crop yields are going to be down this year. I understand they have built a desalination plant to supply London with water. But desalination costs the earth compared to natural water supply. All the best, Londoners.
