Just in case you’ve been on another planet, Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle got married today. They are now The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a title that has been ‘vacant’ since the death of the original Duke in 1843, and she will be the first to hold the duchess title.
To show our interest, Hubby was painting the gates and I was walking the dog at midday when it was all happening.
The internet is now full of pictures of the celebrities, ex girlfriends, family and friends.
Of course the main interest is The Dress, and I have to say it was rather lovely with its simplistic lines and design.
I wish the couple well.

On to another important event of the day and the FA Cup Final between Chelsea and
Manchester United which is currently in progress. At the time of typing, Chelsea are one up from a penalty in the 22nd minute, and we are just about to enter half time.

Would be nice if Chelsea took the crown, not that I know anything about footie.

Chelsea have won it 7 times:
1969–70, 1996–97, 1999–2000, 2006–07, 2008–09, 2009–10, 2011–12

Manchester United have won it 12 times:
1908–09, 1947–48, 1962–63, 1976–77, 1982–83, 1984–85, 1989–90, 1993–94, 1995–96, 1998–99, 2003–04, 2015–16

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Seriously? Yet here I was, all done with the chores so I didn’t miss out on any of the royal action.
