The Royal Wedding is finally over and we can all now get back to a little semblance of normality. Although we all complained about it distracting us from our usual daytime telly programmes, we must confess we did become caught up in the moment.

Razzi & Kate elope from Westminster Abbey.

The whole world stood agasp today as Razzi turned up at Westminster Abbey and ruined the day for Prince William.

The Bears and I were saddened over the weekend to hear of the death of John Sullivan following a short illness, at the age of 64. Sometimes it is difficult to know how to feel at the death of celebrities because we do not know them personally neither have we ever met them. In the case of John Sullivan, we are saddened because he is someone’s father or husband; but mostly we will miss his writing skills.
