Although I am Spoof's new Royal Correspondent I didn't get around to going to the Wedding. I missed out on the TV as well.
But I am now all in favour of these larks.
The supermarket carpark was almost empty during the morning and in the store all the usual riff-raff were missing. There was also a noticeable absence of mad people. We raced around the store, had no waiting at the cash till and had the best shopping experience in years.
I have also been able to cut my toe nails, floss my teeth - or at least I mean to next time - and I've done some gardening, or intend to when I have finished this.
I had every intention of going to the Wedding to carry out my Royal Duties but somehow, one thing led to another and I failed to go on the journey.
I have been given one more chance and will be going to a street party next week - or maybe it was today.
