After a very busy few weeks, the double long-weekend here in the UK is an absolute tonic. I’m finally catching up with my book reviews which you’ll see popping up soon and having time to catch up with friends and family as well as getting some me-time.
I’m not big on flag-waving as a rule and don’t have a big fascination with the Royals, but the big event yesterday was pretty spectacular! My Nan at eighty-something was determined to come in to London and join the crowds at the Mall so my boyfriend and I went to meet her. The atmosphere was brilliant and it was so much fun even if it was hard to see anything over the tops of peoples heads!
It wasn’t easy, but with some rather precarious balancing the photographer BF managed to get this snap of the couple returning from Westminster Abbey:
As well as the Queen and Prince Philip…
Look at the crowds on the Mall!!
Nan had brought practically the whole bar with her, so we were able to drink a toast to the couple with a G&T…
… and then a Pimms and Lemonade in St James’ Park afterwards!
What did you get up to yesterday? Did you avoid the Royal Wedding like the plague or revel in the romance?
