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.
