Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Will you be there/watching on tv or having a garden /street party? I am off that weekend so probs. have a British tea in the garden if dry or the conservatory looking out on the rain...(crikey I do sound pessimistic!!) am actually looking forward to it, I like the immediate royals and look forward to seeing them on these occasions. Havent planned on the food yet ...but will put the Union jack bunting up.....Good times....foodie.

Foodie, we'll be doing something in my village but so far it's not sure what. For HM's golden one the ladies wore shades of yellow in dress styles of the time and had a fair with stalls and stuff.
I'm a bit short of diamonds to wear!!!

Nothing here

Have not seen anything planned up here , probably people are put off by the weather?
Steven & the boys are off to Holland for 4 days over that weekend on a football tour , Paul is away in Cornwall , so not even a family gathering.
Like you Foodie we will have a cream tea to celebrate.
I admire the Queen , she is an incredible lady.

Sir is helping organise a party on the green near us . We have had sucessfull ones for the Millenuim , Diamond Jubilee and last year's Royal wedding . Sadly though we won't be there . Off to Malta for a friend's daughter's wedding . We are hoping that because the Queen lived in Malta for a short time there will be some celebrations .
If I was at home bunting would be put out and a celebration tea would be held .
I will set TV recorder though and pick out best bits on our return .

Not doing anything, I don't agree with having a royal family at all.

We're lucky enough to have four pubs in the village, all of which will be putting on some form of event. We also have a very well run Parish council who are putting on an event and another event organised by the local community. About 30 of us are attending the most central event on the old village school green. Really looking forward to it as it will be a great day with good friends, nice food, a few glasses of fizz, local entertainers and a good old rock out to a brilliant local band.

They are having a street party on my street. I am not entirely comfortable with the idea of celebrating the Jubilee, but community events like this are a bit far and few between in my bit of London, so I will be dragging myself along having just arrived back from France in the early horus of that nmorning. They want us to:
a) bring along food and drink
b) provide a prize for a raffle
c) decorate our houses with bunting
d) plant red white and blue flowers at the bases of the trees in the road.
Not asking much then!

I love anything to do with the Royal Family so will definitely watch TV programmes. Would be nice to celebrate in some way but no plans or invitations as yet.

Our street is having a party. Have contributed so the children can have commemorative mugs but shant be joining in for the communal tea as I have an idea that it will end up as a very boozy do. I like a good booze up myself but not with a load of children around and not in the middle of the street. Gawd, I sound like the grandma that I am!

Queen's Diamond Jubilee

10 years ago we had a Jubilee celebration here in the garden with friends and family. This year there is a still a bit of a question mark hanging over whether we will be doing it this year as Angel (some of you may remember her) will be giving birth in roughly 9 days time. If she is a couple of weeks late, she may only just have given birth. So we are hoping that Cherub (nickname for Angel's baby, [her first born]) will be arrive on time, rather than later. Apparently only 5% of babies are born on their due date (now called estimated date). But I have the flags ready for the flagpole, the bunting all looked out and fingers crossed. This time the flags will be out for more than one reason!

Not a lot of celebration going on here in Ireland, strangely enough ;) I will, however, use it as an excuse to make some scones, and perhaps even get a bottle of bubbly, since my self-imposed month of sobriety (May) will be over by then - so I have an extra reason to celebrate!

Jubilee

it will rather pass us by i fear.

OH curls a lip if i ever suggest anything remotely patriotic and reminds me i live in Canada now!

i'll raise a glass to the old girl - she's doing remarkably well for her age i think.

Honey,the arrival of your new Granchild is a very good reason to hang out the flags whenever it's born.Good luck to you all and let us all know when it happens.

I don't know what we are doing or where we will be on the day. I like the Queen and her husband,and William and Harry are ok, the others I'm not bothered about.
