Well the bunting's up and plans are afoot for this coming weekend to celebrate
the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
We're going to London to see the Pageant on the Thames, staying overnight in an hotel (which we booked last October well ahead of time) and very much looking forward to it. We'll spend the best part of Saturday walking around the best loved sites, taking in all the splendour that London creates at times like this and then have a quiet meal in the evening overlooking the Thames taking in all the atmosphere. Sunday morning up early so that we can get a good spot on the South Bank for the Pageant.
I have to say I am, and always have been an ardent Royalist and love all the pomp and circumstance involved in such occasions. Back home on Sunday evening and then a day to get ready for a family BBQ on the Tuesday where there will probably be around twelve of us.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend
