Currently in June....

It's been an absolutely jubilicious start to the month here in GB, and it's hard to believe it could possibly get any better. But there's a very small event called the Olympics around the corner... I'm loving reading all the "currently's" you're all posting, so here's my link up to Farley's June party.

For those of you who managed to catch up with any of the events over here, it's been a hectic four days. The fanfare heralding The Queen's arrival at St Paul's today was something special. How do they manage to hold a note...?

In previous years, people wanting to see The Queen et al on the balcony at Buckingham Palace have just rushed forward as fast as they could - quite a scary sight if I'm honest. Now the police do a wonderful job of simply "beckoning" the crowd - it really is a thing of beauty to watch the huge crowds just gently inch forward - a real work of art.

It's been 30 years since we sat our O'Levels (that's graduating Middle School..) - now THAT's a scary thought....   Most of us went on to complete High School before going our separate ways. Many of us made our way back to our home town (it's a Welsh thing - hiraeth (longing)... :-) ) We couldn't let this moment pass without marking it in some way, so we're trying to arrange a get together. Not an easy task, but Facebook is a wonderful thing...

My wish, went and want... Well, I wish I was somewhere dry - anywhere will do. It's lucky that skin is waterproof because this rain leaves nothing to chance! But Hawaii is and always has been top of my wish list. One day.... I went to New York in 2004 when my daughter was 9 - just the tow of us. We had a fabulous time (although there isn't much to do in the Big Apple after dark with a 9 year old...). I'd love to go back there soon. And my want - well, we're trying to work out where to go this year. I'd love it to be France or Italy but it's probably going to be somewhere else. Wherever we end up I'll be sure to post some pics...

Have a wonderful Sunday.
