Getting Back To Normal

The Jubilee Celebrations have consumed me this week.
Last night I watched the concert held at Buckingham Palace, all those legendary performers, bringing back so many memories.

Prince Charles made me chuckle addressing his mother as 'Her Majesty', and then quickly adding 'mummy' as an afterthought, so innocently.
I was moved to tears when the entire audience broke out in song God Save The Queen, and joined in at the top of my voice.
I may be separated by an ocean, but will be forever bonded in spirit.

And so now it's time to tend to much neglected chores, the terra cotta boot got a shiny new paint job this week.

Flowers were planted

Oliver snoozed
Back to normal.

Wasn't it a wonderful celebration? It has been a dream of mine to visit England some day, but I doubt that will happen.:(

Ohhh I am also glad that you and Oliver gave yourself some time to enjoy "history in the making". It has been a beautiful Jubilee.
I was thinking about your terra cotta pots, and how proud they must feel to be so cleaned up.
I must get mine out and clean them too.

I missed Prince Charles' comment to his mother. Thanks for sharing it.

Me too, I have been waiting to write my post on the celebrations. I will always be English and proud to stay English. I wish I could have been there. I just love Charles, I don't care what folks say. He works hard and is a decent man. The boys are just awesome and how can anyone not just love Harry,

I really admired all of the events that took place last week. I know it was special even when she wasn't my Queen and in reality she has been my Queen all these years as I watched her from afar. Normal for Oliver is great.
