So, wedding no.2 and I’m not talking about the Royal event!
Health: Yeah, the migraine hit on Thursday. I managed to wrestle it back into submission to attend my cousin’s wedding on Saturday but it came out to play again on Sunday. It’s a definite sign I’ve overdone it so I’m dialling everything back this week and next to bare essentials.
Family & Friends: Lots of family this week given the wedding, not to mention we did the neighbourly thing and attended the street party following the Royal wedding. It was nice to see everyone again (although we had just seen everyone at the beginning of April) and both the bride and groom were very much in love so good all round.
Psychology: Reading, reading and more reading! I’m hoping to do a draft of the proposal this week and start requesting volunteers for the project.
Coaching business: Mostly reading in anticipation of newsletter articles due this week and tweaking the website! But otherwise apart from following up a few queries, it’s trundling along. I have to keep reminding myself that if I put in the work, it will pay off. Maybe later, rather than sooner.
Writing: Still writing but I now have a lot of stuff due for the online magazine and that goes into the must do this week.
Most fun thing of the week: Actually the street party takes the prize this week because I was always come away from it feeling connected on a citizen level, as part of a community however tenuous and annual it is in how it comes together.
Least fun thing of the week: Being delayed 2 hours because someone decided that they’d like to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge onto the M1. Apparently the police talked her round but not until she’d managed to bring traffic to a complete halt (which fair enough because I’d rather they did that than she cause a major traffic accident by landing on a car and causing a pile-up).
Random thought of the week: One commentator in a newspaper said Wills and Kate should do their duty by immediately starting in on a tour of Britain doing good work and pressing the flesh, bringing a smile to the faces of the British people with their young modern sexy Royalness; that it was unfair to us that they were going to Canada on their first official tour. I disagree completely. I think its admirable that William wants to do his duty as a serving officer in our Armed forces. I think Kate is imminently sensible, level-headed and admirable in wanting to support her husband in that decision. And given the primary benefit of the Royal family these days is in the foreign investment and tourism they attract, their decision to go to Canada first is the best thing for the country. Personally, I’m glad the next generation of Royals is actually following the tradition of the Queen and putting duty to country before any desire to become just another celebrity.
