Jubilee Fun

Like most people in the country this weekend, I did my fair share of soaking up the Jubilee atmosphere and more than a little rain. I had heard that Bicester Village would have some fun displays so off I went yet again to see what I could see.

Aubin & Wills whimsical take on the ubiquitous Union Jack was one of my favourites.

 

 

In keeping with the summer foliage theme, a few delightful creatures could be seen amidst the crowds.

 


 

Haven't we had the most wonderful few days? Despite the low-key celebrations in my little neck of the woods, there has been such bonhomie and good cheer.

 


I must admit that I am sorry we shan't be eating meals and clinking glasses in the streets and that I will no longer have an excuse to bunk off work come Wednesday.

Oh, I like Aubin & Wills take on the union jack...that would have gone well in my post:)

It's nice that we had the opportunity to join in some celebrations. I did go to the South Bank for a bit but then went on to a street party. Unfortunately the weather made me want to go home after a while but have loved the nation coming together like this.

It's truly been a wonderful celebration. Here's to our queen!!

Chi-I love the A&W butterflies-feeling inspired! I've just loved this long weekend too-we went to watch the flotilla-hilarious. Both kids on our shoulders got a 60 second view each and Jon and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it through other people's view finders!! Still, we can say we did it! Have a great rest of the week my lovely-now that I actually have a blogroll I can check in to everybody more often xx

Happy belated Jubilee Chi (why it rhymes, #justsayin') I love all those animals with grass on them and the crown. So cool :)
Wish I could have bunked the whole week off work :(

I've always wanted to go to Bicester Village! It's like a bargain-shoppers paradise there, or so I've heard. And it looks so lovely! I'm glad you had a good time and have had a bit of nice weather! How's the general sentiment now that the Jubilee is over? I imagine people are pretty relieved and simultaneously sad.

Sorry I missed this post, Chi. I love all the jubilee details you captured. Those animals and the butterfly Union Jack are quite something impressive and beautiful.
Hope all is well, Chi. Thinking of you.
