Bloody Jubilee

June 5, 2012

I must be really hungover.  Have just watched the jubilee concert, and two awful thoughts struck me as Prince Charles was reading his speech.  Firstly, i started welling up with pride.  Now that’s just not right.  Secondly, i started thinking that the queen’s outfit was really rather nice.  Now that may have been because, next to Elton’s hideous pink bobbly thing, hers actually looked rather tasteful.  But, am sure, with a clear head tomorrow i’ll have come to my senses.

So yesterday we were invited, very sweetly, to a neighbour’s house for a jubilee party.  Neighbours that we’d never met.  Got rather overexcited when i got the invitation, which it transpired was through Advolly’s blessed intervention.  But it was a lovely afternoon and evening.  Though ended far too late.  But got to know Ginny and her partner Nick, who moved to the street just under 2 years ago, and also got to chat more with some of the other neighbours who we’ve met before.  I don’t think i embarrassed myself too much, but you never know.  The proof will be in the pudding, or rather, when we do a summer party and invite people over – if no one comes then i’ll know!!!

However, last nights jollity cemented something that i’ve suspected for a while: I can not drink fizzy wine anymore.  Ever since being preggers with the hat it’s given me awful indigestion.  But last night it was going down fine.  Until i tried to go to sleep.  And then, every hour i was woken up with that heinous burning sensation.  So today, hungover, and with very little sleep, has been a bit of a struggle.  To say the least.  Diet gone completely out the window.  Nando’s for lunch.  Pizza for tea.  Ach well.  It’s only the diamond jubilee once in a lifetime (thank god).

    yes, I think it is the sheer volume of Maison Windsor that, in the end, you succumb. Missed the concert, but today I thought how elegant Camilla looked.

    Watched the Lancaster bomber and the Spitfires this afternoon and got all choked up, but that is is different I think.

    Must be all mad waving flags etc in the UK now – this will unleash ten years of mens’ swimming togs made in the design of the Union Jack. I know whereof I speak as I was living in London at the time of the Silver Jubilee and people went bananas and followed it with the above mentioned wave of nationalist togs.

    Well, you must have been hung over if you were perving after the Queen’s outfit – not that I’ve seen it but, based on 60 years of matching coats/dresses/hats/handbag/shoes that no amount of Elton John has been able to dislodge, I can hazard a pretty accurate guess I’m sure. xxxClaire
