Just wondering what you all have planned for this extended Jubilee weekend?
Are there many local events organised near you or are you throwing your own party?
4th June is actually my birthday so I'm heading home to London to get right in the thick of it all! Not really ever been much of a royalist but 60 years is pretty impressive and I do love national occasions!
I'm going to both the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the Saturday and then Hyde Park for a picnic in front of the big screens showing the much hyped Buckingham Palace concert Monday evening - should be good fun!
Happy birthday, Kathryn. I hope you enjoy today - and each day after, too. I hope everyone who is attending events for the jubilee enjoy themselves. I myself am a republican, so will be staying well away from anything to do with it!
Hello Stephen - many thanks for the birthday wishes, I had a brilliant birthday and weekend! I might try and post a few photos later :)
That makes three Republicans on one thread. No prizes for guessing who the third is.
I look forward to seeing your photos, Kathryn. I don't celebrate my birthday, but have an anniversary on the second Tuesday in June. That was yesterday, exactly 21 years alcohol-free.
I'm in my new flat now, and spent many hours bird-watching out of the window during Jubilee weekend. I've identified nine species so far, but haven't seen the wrens I've been told about. I've even bought a new book on British birds.
On bank holiday Monday I went to my art group, and tentatively discussed with two others the possibility of carrying on informally when this course finishes. I really hope this idea comes to fruition, but premises might be a problem. Normally, an art group will rent a space which it sub-divides, and members have 24 hour access.
I can't see this happening because things in Cambridge are expensive, but I'm going to moot the idea of renting space on a regular daily or hourly basis, with the potential of an exhibition there at some future date.
Anybody have any suggestions? All ideas welcome.
