    Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

    Post  ruby on Fri Jun 08, 2012 1:12 am

    Thought I would update you all on my Jubilee weekend and the reason I have been 'absent' from the site over the last few days.

    My family and I went to London on Saturday for the Jubilee Celebrations. We had previously booked as is our tradition, afternoon tea at the Ritz. Gosh it was absolutely wonderful, so decadent and totally fitting for the commencement of such a wonderful celebration weekend. We next went to Harrods and had a browse around the store and purchased 6 Jubilee cupcakes even though they were £3.75 each Shocked . All the women staff at Harrods were wearing tiaras and the children in our party were all given complimentary Harrods Jubilee Flags.

    We then had a trip on the London Eye to see the preparations for the Pageant the following day. Then we retired back to our hotel for a family get together and ordered a lovely meal of lobster followed by a glass or two of champagne.drunken

    The next morning we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, then made our way to the Tower of London. My uncle is a retired Yeoman of the Guard (Beefeater) and he had arranged for our party to have complimentary tickets in a private enclosed area overlooking the Thames. We were treated like royalty ourselves, it was such a wonderful experience. We had uninterrupted views of the pageant as it arrived at Tower Bridge. Of course, being in such a privileged seating area, the weather did not affect our enjoyment and I kept my consumption of champagne to a minimum of 2 glasses Laughing

    The fireworks on Tower Bridge were a sight to behold and the whole event will remain with me for the rest of my life. I am also thrilled that the children were able to join in with such an important event in such an elite seating area. I don’t think there will ever be another Diamond Jubilee in this country and I'm just sad that the event was marred by the Duke of Edinburgh being taken to hospital.

    How did everyone else celebrate the Jubilee?

    Hi Maria

    Yes Strawbs and I met briefly outside Harrods on the Saturday. We went into Harrods and indulged in a coffee and had a good old catch up and exchanged news, unfortunately, she had to leave after about 3/4 of an hour as she had a prior engagement to attend. She has done so well on her diet and looks absolutely gorgeous, a real genuine hour glass figure that most women would die for including myself Razz

    I have been in touch with her regularly since, she is just glowing.

    Aaw, thank you for your lovely compliment! Gosh, I almost blushed and came over all giddy!!! drunken

    You looked wonderful, too - and your grandchildren are beautiful!! You must be so, so proud of them! They are delightful!

    It was so lovely meeting up - even though I couldn't stay long - but I'll make it up to you when you come down for the weekend..... drunken
