Now I'm not particularly royalist, but I do have huge admiration and respect for The Queen, for the job she does and for sticking it out for over 60 years. I absolutely hate being on a boat - just the smell makes me physically ill. But I have to say - what a marvellous way to celebrate. I would have loved to have been in London today, just to be part of it, and regret now that I didn't book up. Watching on TV, it was still a marvellous sight to behold. I loved watching the historic boats, especially the Little Boats that played an invaluable part in evacuating the British Army from the French shores at Dunkirk in 1940, allowing them to literally live to fight another day. Amazing stories. And even better was the sight of 91 year old Prince Philip and The Queen bopping along to the music of the London Philharmonic as it sailed past...
The children made bunting and some wonderful posters to celebrate the Jubilee...
