Driving home from today’s wedding – the first of three in a row – I was flicking between 3RRRFM and SEN on the radio, as is my wont.
But I wasn’t really listening to either station. Over and over, in my head, I was hearing Julie Andrews singing. Yes – THAT Julie Andrews.
“Somewhere in my youth… or childhood
I must have done something good…”
From The Sound of Music, naturally. You have already seen it. If you haven’t – go rent it. You will quickly realise how inspired film-making can transcend cliche – no, really, it is not just a classic, it’s great.
Anyway, the reason that line was going through my head is because I was driving home in this state of tired happy elation, this utter joy that everything had clicked. This was a day that I thought was going to be… tricky. Wrong time of day for photos, the forecast was for showers, all that.
But, somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.
Because it was perfect. Craig and Fleur. The light. The day. The… everything.
