May is quite a busy month for me, a couple of anniversaries (including ours), a few birthdays (including mine) and tonight Eurovision!
Our entry is Surie and her song ‘Storm’.
It’s not bad, but we won’t get anywhere of course because it’s the UK and Europe doesn’t like us. Not that the voting is political, fixed or bias you understand.
It’s 11 years (2007) since the Eurovision contest was on my birthday. You know how I remember? It was the year we sold the bungalow and were in ‘lodgings’ for a few months.
We were watching it on TV and our ‘host’ got bored and changed the channel. Not that I blamed them as our entry was Scooch and Flying the Flag. How dire was that, and one of our worst entries ever (IMO), which was reflected in a total score of 19 and second from bottom.
Next week is a triple whammy though.
We have the Royal Wedding and I am sick to the eye teeth with it.
I cannot get enthusiastic about it, unlike when William and Kate married in 2011.
SHE is in the news every other paragraph, and comparison to Princess Di? How dare they!
We’ve had the dress designer leak, the cake, the bridesmaids, the ‘Will the father of the bride give her away or won’t he’ saga, family grumblings for not being invited, Mum’s arrival and now I’m waiting for who is going to provide the Royal Underwear for the day, not to mention of course the Royal Garter.
The first baby will be born within a year as they can’t wait to get started on a family.
I wish them well as I do any bride and groom, but I have reservations I’m afraid.
We’ll be going through it all again with Princess Eugene later in the year only this time it will be The Fergie Chronicles again as the Firm hate her.
Also on the 19th, we have the FA Cup Final!
Not being a footie fan, I would rather watch this than the royal wedding, if I had a telly of course!
This year it’s between Chelsea and Manchester United. Good luck guys! Play your hearts out, and play fair!
We must not forget the Bloggers Bash. Now that takes priority over everything and I hope everyone has a great time!
(And a happy anniversary to TanGental too!)
Wow. So much in just one day!
I’m tired just thinking about it!
