Idiom, guests and a good clothes day.

1. The phrase 'chewing a wasp' used to describe a certain sour-faced female guest at the royal wedding.

1a. I did like the Duchess of Cornwall's outfit, too, and booing at Princess Michael of Kent.

1b. And I enjoyed taking advantage of Nick's almost encyclopaedic knowledge of bigwigs and royalty.

2. The mass of people walking down The Mall towards Buckingham Palace.

3. Some days are better than others for baby clothes. Sometimes, a pile of blown-out baby grows accumulates on the landing and in the nappy bucket. Today, however, first thing I put Alec in a royal wedding watching outfit (nothing formal, but it was a never-before worn outfit, a gift from Katie-who-I-used-to-work-with). He was still wearing the same clothes at bedtime. I took this photo early on -- he fell asleep soon after I dressed him, presumably exhausted by the effort of having everything done for him.
