This weekend was the much anticipated Coronation of King Charles III.
I watched it all on TV in the peace and quiet of my home. My Hubby, who is not a fan of royalty took himself out.
I enjoyed watching it - we certainly do pomp and ceremony well, even in the rain. There have also been a lot of street parties taking place and people do seem to have got behind the new King.
Of course there are also people who feel we shouldn't have a monarchy and that the money spent on this event could have been put to better use. There are pros and cons for both arguments.
It rained on and off all day yesterday but it didn't spoil the event.
Today has been much nicer, warm and sunny. I've had another lazy day but I did get out for a walk up into the forest and back down by the golf course for a change. I was glad I'd put my walking boots on though as the rain yesterday has made the paths very muddy again.
We have a bank holiday tomorrow but of course when you're retired it doesn't have the same impact!
I've finally finished reading the Terry Pratchett book I'd started nearly a week ago. It was the second of his books that I've read for the BBC list I'm still slowly working through. Thankfully there are no more of his books on the list because I am done with Pratchett. I don't dislike a bit of fantasy or sci-fi but I found his books hard going. Perhaps I'm just too old lol.
