'It's been a frantic few days (surprisingly not because of the royal wedding - but certainly because the holidays associated with the wedding and Easter have really mixed up work and time management issues to be honest).

I must not be 'grumpy' about this, though, because who could fail to be moved and cheered by the mood in the run up to the wedding - and indeed the wedding itself.

The bride looked absolutely stunning - its difficult to conceive how its possible to see a more beautiful bride - but the bridesmaids, pageboys etc etc all looked wonderful. And the whole presentation and organisation was really a showcase to the World - what a fabulous idea to have planted trees in Westminster Abbey.

We do know how to put on a 'big event' and it bodes well for the Olympics similarly being a demonstration to the World of how to do things well.
