I’m looking forward to the royal wedding.
I don’t come across as the most romantic person in the world – and I’m not necessarily, but weddings have a curious effect on me.
My own wedding was lovely. The whole day was rose-gold and cream, crystals and ivory silk. I never thought it would happen to me. Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World’ played in the background as we exchanged our vows. I wore a tiara and my friend’s little girl followed me around saying “You’re a princess!” My entire family were there, wishing us well. Although the groom is long gone, weddings remain gloriously soft focus.
Whilst I was looking forward to the royal wedding, I wasn’t going to buy them anything. Or I wasn’t until I saw their gift list. Kate Middleton and Prince William have asked their guests and well wishers to donate to one of 26 charities. Included is the Beatbullying charity. It’s said Kate chose them because she had to be removed from a particular school after just two terms because of bullying. Beatbullying are now planning to ask Kate to become a patron.
Can you imagine how those former school kids must be feeling, knowing they bullied the future Queen of England? Ouch. There’s a lesson for bullies and the people they target.
I like Kate’s fairytale example.
Because maybe we’re the one’s who’ll live happily ever after.
- Bullied By The Boss
- Welcome to my blog. My pen name is Eva James. I'm an aspiring writer paying the bills working as a legal secretary. Relentlessly bullied by my former boss, I looked for another job but the recession hit. Feeling trapped, I recorded everything in this blog, which serves as a revealing insight into workplace bullying. WEEK 1 starts the story and, as the weeks progress, you'll note what starts as banter soon spirals out of control. Sadly, it's all true. Whilst along the way I've found alternative employment, my passion for blogging about workplace bullying remains. Trevor Griffiths, legendary theatre, TV and film writer said at the outset, "I like the writing a lot: smart, cool, placed. If you were prepared/able to take your prick of a boss on, you'd marmelise him."
