I remember Diana and Charles' wedding. I, like millions of Americans, woke up very early (I wasn't keeping such extreme hours in those days) and sat, glued to the television, while this fairy-tale wedding took place. And now there will be another wedding in the British Royal family - William and Kate. These two have a chance - they have at least known each other for many years now and have split once a few years ago, only to decide that they couldn't live without each other. So once again we get to be inundated with "the dress", "the venue", and "the guest list". There will be the obligatory kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace and the procession through the city. I wish them the very best - they make a very cute couple (and she has wonderful fashion sense). I'll probably be up watching this wedding too, and I will hope that I won't have to watch things fall apart several years later as happened to both his father and his uncle.
I loved the fairy-tale wedding of
Charles and Diana. And just
look at her bouquet. It's a good
thing she didn't have to toss that!
I did get a lot of work on holiday gifts done yesterday, at the expense of two stories that I am beta reading for some of my authors. I'll have to work on Iris's story tonight, but that's just a final run-through before release for posting. Sadie's story is more intense - lots more red in this one. I'm still deciding whether or not I am willing to take her on. At this time of the year, when my time is so limited, I actually think I'll have to turn her down. It is in a period of assessment for both of us, so we'll see. But I feel that I probably can't accept another ESL author - it is just too difficult to beta because of differing thought processes and word orders. ESL authors take a lot of extra time.
