Six Word Fridays: last


the last time there was a

royal wedding this significant, i was

8 years old. woken up early

by myΒ mom, together sharing history.

30 years later, i am up

early again, bleary-eyed but excited

to watch history in the making

once more. my daughter too young

to appreciate it with me – drats.

It’s Six Word Fridays AND Will and Kate’s wedding day! I couldn’t resist mixing the two into this post. πŸ™‚ For more Six Word Friday-ness, visit Making Things Up.

    I didn’t even know I’d watch ~ but I was up and so glad I was! My daughter’s getting married this year ~ so I really enjoyed it! I love that you remeber watching Diana’s wedding with your mom.

      Hi Adrienne,

      I really enjoyed getting up but reading all the tweets from people having tea and scones made me wish I had the same. πŸ™‚

    My oldest DS is old enough; unfortunately, not interested πŸ˜‰
    Enjoy the ceremony!

    You make me realize that the global ceremony is just one more excuse to vary our routine and get a little excited about something outside ourselves. Enjoy.

      So true. I didn’t think I would get so excited about this wedding, but I did. I think Twitter played a part in that. πŸ˜‰

    I watched Diana’s wedding with my mom and today I watched the wedding with her spirit πŸ™‚

    Wow, this was a fun twist on the topic! I’m glad you enjoyed it, I’m sorry your daughter wasn’t old enough to enjoy it with you! I missed both. I must just be WAY out of the loop!!

      Hi Caroline – I remember when my mom woke me up for Charles and Diana’s wedding I didn’t really understand why she was waking me up. I got into it though the more I woke up. Looking back, I think she wanted someone to share in the moment with her. I’m glad we did. πŸ™‚

    I watched Charles and Diana’s wedding too but skipped this one – I didn’t even realize it was going until I signed on to Twitter. Yes, I do live under a rock. A REALLY big one apparently πŸ™‚

    • melgallant

      No, not living under a rock…most likely preoccupied by things in the life a little closer to home. πŸ™‚

    I’m so out of tv circulation that I missed this one. I bet the evening news will have footage!

    I always enjoy reading your posts, and this one is no exception. It reveals the tenderness and softness that is you. Thanks for a good one.

    Last time I was too young.
    This time I was too sleepy.
    Next time! Next time I’ll see. πŸ˜‰

    My little girl doesn’t understand the significance, but she loved the idea of a real life princess and waited so see her kiss her prince.

    I didn’t think I was interested, but my husband recorded it for me and I’m glad I watched it.

    I know! My daughter wasn’t impressed, either.
