You know how when someone close to you dies, it seems like every time you turn on the radio or TV or open a paper, there's something about death? I had been invited this weekend - yesterday, to be precise - to the wedding of a constituent of mine. She first mentioned her wedding to me over a year ago, and there's been a lot of preparation for the special day.
So how surprised, and disappointed, I was to receive a text message on Friday afternoon, to say that after a lot of thought, the wedding had been called off.
And how coincidental it is that over the weekend, almost every sad wedding-based movie ever made seems to be showing on TV. I hope she isn't watching.
