OK, so you must be living under a stone to not know that we’re having a bit of a party over here in the UK this weekend to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
You may have heard about the Flotilla of a thousand (yes, 1000) boats sailing down the Thames to mark the occasion. Well, we went to see the Flotilla on Saturday.
Yet another day trip to Ely made even more fabulous by the ladies at Yarn on the Square (last time, if you remember, they were knitting fruit and veg for the Harvest Festival at Ely Cathedral and provided me with the wonderful, much loved and admired Camel Tea Cosy).
So, they’d knitted and crocheted a Royal Barge…
The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and some of the corgis were there:
and (obviously) there was bunting:
Got the weekend off to a wonderful start. Pics and more wittering about the actual Flotilla tomorrow!
