Jubilee

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Loved the celebrations! I really enjoyed that concert in front of the Palace (on the tv, we weren't there). How amazing were the scenes that were projected onto the front of the palace (especially when Madness were playing on the roof)? Loved how they lit it up red, white and blue after the fireworks. Fab!

And to the anti-monarchy folk out there....boo hisss! All that talk that people shouldn't be born into the role and we should elect a head of state instead of having a royal family. No no no. I dont like you your opinions as much as i don't like the Scottish Nationalists. I love the Royal family. Not in an obsessed nutty kinda way. Just in a, they make me proud to be BRITISH, kind of way. I love all the pomp and circumstance and the history....i have a BA Honours in History, how can i not be interested in the Royals both past and present. And lets face it, they must bring in a huge revenue in tourism (queue all the bitter Scots *but its only for London* blah blah blah)

My friend Janet threw a Jubilee party. Red, white and blue food, balloons, decorations and guests :-) Look at this Jubilee Pavlova!

I'm a fan of the Royals too and we've been having so much fun watching all the celebrations on the TV. Ottawa had a few celebrations of their own although we weren't able to make it to any of them.
Love the family pic!

What a lovely family photo! I too felt very proud to be British this weekend. Such a difference from last year when I was disgusted with the behaviour of the pathetic few in the London riots.
I'm trying to watch the calories at the moment - but I'd kill for a little bit of that yummy pavlova! ;0)

You look beautiful in the bridesmaid dress!

Congratulations to Caleb for doing so well, is he like that at home as well?

We enjoyed watching just a little of the Jubilee celebrations, but with the time zones, it was just too late at night. Love the family photo!
