No art to show you today I'm afraid ... I have been too busy celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee! Wow, what a great (long) weekend it's been. It seems like us Brits really do know how to party! As a family we 'uhmmed and ah-ed' about what to do for the weekend and in the end we decided to stay put and enjoy the festivities around our village and we were not disappointed.
The float parade through the village was a real highlight! Here's are a couple of brass band members having a chin-wag before the start:
And here they are oom-pa-pa-ing their way through the village, just behind the May Queen, and just in front of a row of seriously shiny and polished tractors pulling the floats. Never seen tractors so shiny before. Come to think of it, I haven't seen them drive that slowly through our village before either!
So much bunting everywhere. It makes one feel very ... er ... British.
It wouldn't be a British bank holiday without a torrential downpour though would it?! Still, with true British spirit we didn't let it dampen our spirits.
So what else have I been doing? Well, I've been getting ready for a bit of this:
Yes, I'm off down south (well, south for me anyway!) to film some more Art Journaling DVDs. Yikes! It's scaaaaaarrrrreeeeeeey! Wish me luck!
See you soon. Byeeeeeeeeee
