Its all over the news here..... WHO there is going to watch the boats on the Thames? They are saying its something you will never see in your lifetime again.

Or maybe doing something else for the Jubilee.....?

Reading and watching DVDs. In fact, I may not even bother to turn on the TV. Same as I did for the Royal Wedding last year.

I'll be working as my shop is open right through the weekend as usual. I don't think there is anything much going on in Ironbridge we have only just had the Olympic torch through town and they went a bit nuts over that so another set of road closures for bands and dancing would be a bit too soon.

Oh and Del, take some of these please ;)

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Used to live not far from Ironbridge (other side of Much Wenlock). Do the iron Men still strut their stuff? Del would LOVE them :P

We had a Jubilee buffet at work the other day, which considering what work is like at the moment was actually quite enjoyable, some people made some awesome treats...yum. :D

My lad's school had a Jubilee picnic on Friday and we (him, his Nan and his Dad, I gave moral support ;) ) made some special flag cakes which went down extremely well, well the tins came back empty! :D

I am very glad of the extra Bank Holiday but doubt I will be paying much attention on the day as it will make me want to shout at the tele (goes off mumbling about waste of space Royals...yes you heard me...mumble mumble)

They certainly do, they were out on the 30th May to welcome the Olympic torch. I posted photos in the 2012 pictures thread.

Weather permitting, I intend to head for the hills and go for a nice long walk. :D
