It's May! Which, in my house, means only one thing. Royal wedding season.
If you're already rolling your eyes, I suggest you click elsewhere and give this post a swerve.
I'm not ashamed to admit it; I am seriously looking forward to watching Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot. What's not to love? Pomp, pageantry, glamour!
I had to laugh, though, when I read a post on a certain parenting site to the effect that one mum is trying to work out whether it's rude or unreasonable of her to turn down an invitation to a child's birthday party cos she'd rather stay home and watch the Royal wedding.
It got me wondering what kind of mother books a birthday bash at the same time as the wedding of the year.
But seriously, it did have me wondering if there are two types of mum – those who put their precious offspring's party plans ahead of Royalty, and those who wouldn't dream of missing a day in front of the telly box ogling oligarchs.
So, which one are you? Would you be the mum throwing the birthday party that clashes with the Royal nuptials? Or are you the mum who will be working out reasons to explain why your child can't attend his or her little buddy's birthday party, without disclosing that you'd frankly rather watch Royalty get spliced?
