Hello my little lovelies! Today is the day some people have been anticipating for weeks - the Royal Wedding. As a Brit, I'm actually not too fussed about the wedding. I think it's lovely that Wills is marrying Kate, and can just imagine how exciting it is to be involved with such a wedding. But I'm not involved and so there ends my interest!
Even in NZ we are celebrating the wedding. We DON'T get the day off work (booo hiss) (and I discovered we don't get May Day off either - booo hiss), but we were sent an email in work yesterday inviting us to dress in a royal wedding theme and to have a little tea party this afternoon. We're 11 hours ahead of the UK so they're all tucked up in bed right now and the wedding footage actually commences at 6.30pm this evening.
I spent a little while rifling through my wardrobe last night for a frock suitable for fun as well as sitting in work all day, but gave up. In the end, I went with my new faux fur, some real pearls and a splash of red lippy. I thought I would rock snooty, aristocratic chic my way! ;)

Tonight I'm going to a friend's ex-pat party for scones, crumpets and I'm going to take cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches! Fun!
