I was initially indifferent to it but I must admit, I'm now rather looking forward to it. The flags, bunting and general air of excitement is infectious.
It was rather touching today to see ordinary people displaying uncharacteristic patriotism - the shelf stacker in the supermarket with a huge Union Jack flag over his shoulders; the phalanxes of school children proudly displaying the crowns/flags/pictures of the Queen that they'd made in school as they walked down the street; the street next to me with bunting strung the entire length.
I will be working on an event taking place on one of the boats taking place in the Jubilee Boat Parade but I'm contractually obliged not to talk about it. Suffice to say, I do hope the weather holds out.
Once the parade is over, I plan to spend the rest of the weekend attending street parties and relaxing.
I hope your weekend is fun, wherever you are. x
