In the UK there's a royal wedding coming up and there will be lots of television coverage of the event for those who are interested. Personally I'm not.
This will also be a public holiday, so no work and no school. My initial idea was to take advantage of the holiday and the spring weather and the family would go to the beach or do something else fun outdoors.
However, this potentially deprives my children of the chance to experience the event. It's even possible that in many decades time they will want to be able to look back and remember it.
One option is to ask them, of course. And I will. But should I also be helping them to decide one way or the other (especially if it's an event that makes me feel a bit curmudgeonly)?
