It's finally arrived.




For a while I was beginning to wonder if they'd lost my address; silly me!

So, here it is, our invitation to dress up in our finery, bring out the family jewels, and rub shoulders with some 'Spice Girls', one or two Markles from America, and a few Crowned Heads of Europe.

I see that the bash is set for Saturday 19th May, which, of course, is 'Market Day' here. So, as I may need to buy eggs and wine, it looks as if the dates will clash.

Eeenie, meenie, miney, moe.....

  1. You couldn't possibly miss the wine and eggs. I shall put on my best hat, pour a glass of bubbly, and watch it from home.

    1. I quite expect we'll rush home and wave our little flags; or maybe not. We'll have to see!

  2. I've noticed over the years that even though I don't comment often, when I do I am often your first commenter. Seems while I'm up blogging very late here in the US, you're up quite early over there, which is basically the same time isn't it? As far as the invite goes, buy double the eggs and wine you need the week before, don't let Harry down!

    1. I get-up every morning at 5.30 am.

      Double my purchase the week before? That sound far too organised and efficient for me.

  3. You won't be attending the luncheon at St George's Hall?!

    1. Probably not. It'll be beans on toast at home; not that different.

  4. And what present are you taking them? A litre of France's best in a plastic bottle? Bet they haven't got any of that!

  5. Agree with Sue, get the eggs and wine, these celebrations are vastly over-rated.

    1. My thoughts exactly. They'll just have to manage without me!

  6. I would have guessed that you are a doctor with that writing.

  7. If they'd send a helicopter for us and have a dogminder to look after Ted we'd love to go. Still I got £50 from ERNIE this month so I'm not that disappointed.

    1. Lucky you. I've held bonds for decades, and not had a penny.

    2. £50 wins are quite rare now. All my recent-ish wins have been £25 and even they seem to have totally died a death.

    3. That's a very interesting point about ERNIE. Until last year I was making between 5 and 7% on my bonds but for the last 6 or perhaps more months wins have been like hens' teeth.

  8. I'll watch the wedding to see the Beckhams arrive and what Victoria is wearing. I have sent Harry an invitation to a pheasant shoot, and Meghan of course, when they are at Sandringham next winter. I am still awaiting a reply.

    1. A Pheasant Shoot in the garden?

      Lady M will be watching; I might glance.

      Delete
    2. No, on the land around here. Meghan won't allow Harry to go on shoots now so she probably threw it in the bin before he got to see it.

    3. I doubt he will see much fun anywhere anymore.

    4. He'll be made to go to the USA; very often.

  9. Your invitation arrived after so many VIPs weren't invited. So second ran, but at least you are invited. Of course you know you will have to stump up a contribution towards a stunning new outfit for Lady M, along with getting your old clobber dry cleaned. Can you remember how to bow to royalty?

    1. I've been practicing my curtsy; just in case.

  10. I agree with most of your commenters. Cook a decent meal, bring out plenty of wine for the toasts and watch it on the telly.

    1. I quite expect that's what we'll do.

  11. I will catch the abridged version on the news at night. They do seem like a lovely couple though. I am sure both of them will be very glad to get all this hoopla over with and the spotlight off of them.

    1. I'm not sure if she really understands what she's got herself into. The life of a 'royal' is pretty tough, and hard work.

    2. When getting married, I don’t think most people know what they are getting themselves into.

  12. That handwriting is very familiar...

    1. The word you were looking for is 'distinguished'; not 'familiar'.

  13. How could you not go? (I'm looking like Munch's 'The Scream' painting here). I was invited to the Inauguration, but my invitation came late! LOL! True! (My son-in-law is a doctor, a plastic surgeon...not that it's done me any good). Looks like rain today here in the swamp. So much for mowing the grass. Ta! Off to guzzle some more coffee and read some poetry. xo

    1. It's all a question of priorities. Eggs and wine over wedding cake.

    2. Cro, you'd make a great neighbor. I have one neighbor who photographs me in my yard when I'm not looking (I have a 6 foot tall wooden fence all around...hmmm) and another who mows down to the dirt twice a week & poisons everything. I use no chemicals in my yard. (On full moon nights, I shovel up my piles of fire ants and dump them in his flower garden...It comforts the 'wild child' in me. ;-) I mow once a month, maybe). You have a wonderful sense of humor.

    3. Does your neighbour photograph you because your bikini is two sizes too small, or because he has an interesting collection of lawn photos?

      Delete
    4. That's the thing...I have no idea why anyone would want a photo of me in shorts, a halter top, a straw hat, & cowgirl boots mowing the grass. LOL! His wife is 5 feet tall & around. Guess he likes taller women since I'm almost 6 feet tall. The strange thing is that it's legal to do it as long as he's not on my property. I foresee fire ants in his future... Ha! xo

  14. We are going to do what we always do for a royal wedding - flee the country and avoid the whole carry on.
