Especially for BNM, who I am sure by now is sitting in a bunting bedecked living room in his Union Jack suit counting the hours until the happy couple appear! Photo taken by a pal in Windsor yesterday .

I'm actually sat in a pub near Lacock, Wilts, enjoying a cool lager with bobm.

Thankfully no TV, bunting etc here.  Tongue

Although this conversation is utterly fascinating and riveting Grin just to bring the thread back on topic, SAM FM Thames Valley have just tweeted the following:

Congratulations to the happy couple. I'm a republican but I'm not that much of a curmudgeon to pour scorn on love and marriage.

That said, the BBC have gone too far this time. My Saturday nights are enlivened by re-runs of Dad's Army. But this week Walmington-on-Sea's finest have been shelved in favour of wedding highlights.

I'm apoplectic. I've a good mind to write to Barry Took, complaining at BBC2's scheduling. They won't like it up 'em.  Tongue Tongue Tongue

Nope Captain Mainwaring was there this evening keeping us safe from the Hun. It was on at 18:30 tonight and can be watched https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00789c4/dads-army-series-7-4-the-godiva-affair here.

Ahh. DON'T PANIC! DON'T PANIC!

Still writing to Anne Robinson though. Fancy the BBC scheduling the only two programmes I actually wanted to watch this evening, FA Cup and Dad's Army, at the same time. Dad's Army should be on around 8pm. Tongue

Oh and my EPG was wrong.

With the benefit of hindsight, this light-hearted renaming on the platform was NOT smart idea. Significant numbers of people wanted to be photographed with the temporary station names.
This added to congestion on the platform, which was already a problem.

In retrospect it would have been better to only modify signs away from the platform, in which places a bit of extra congestion would not have mattered.
