Darned if I’ve just written and saved a post that I know I’ll never publish. Was it too racy? If you’ve read my book, Banished, you’d know that wasn’t a consideration. Too sad? Again, not something that would halt my hand. Too abusive? Violent? Scary? No, no and no again. It was, would you believe, a realisation that there is something in the old saying about ‘never discuss religion or politics’. The post was about Bin Laden’s death and Al Qaeda’s continuing existence. So why didn’t I publish it? Was I scared? Well, no, but now I think about it I wouldn’t be scared for myself but for my family. But that wasn’t it anyway. Was I worried about people coming back with negative comments – again, I’m not worried about negative comments. I welcome all comments. No, it was more that I’d had a truly wonderful weekend and I want to keep the glow alive.
It started off with the gorgeous Royal Wedding, followed by a village barbecue and games on the Green. I may not be a royalist but I loved the whole affair as much as I enjoy Birthdays, Christmas and Diwali.
So, to keep the spirit of happiness going I shall instead leave that other post wilting in the wings and raise a toast to the Happy Couple.
To HRH Prince William and HRH Princess Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
