Trials and Jubilations

With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee coming up, and the Olympics, it appears Britain has gone Britain mad!

Everywhere you look shop displays are in red, white and blue. Products have been repackaged for the occasion and there’s bunting wherever anything has stopped for long enough to be draped!

The Saltburn Yarn Bomber stikes again, this time with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee as the subject

According to the Daily Mail, £823m (!) has been spent already on decorations, food and drink for the various street parties taking place up and down the country.

I think it’s great that as a nation, we can still find something we can all get behind.

We’ll be going to a Jubilee Fair this weekend on the park near us and it’ll be great to see the community coming out and (hopefully) enjoying the sunshine for the various activities on offer. Guests have been encouraged to join in the spirit and bring a picnic, dress in Union Jack colours and take part in the Space Hopper race!

I can’t help feeling though that come the time of the Olympics, we’re going to be a tad sick of all the Union Jacks draped everywhere, but I could be wrong.

My contribution to the red, white and blue colour scheme for this fair will be my nails and not my father’s suggestion of dying my eyebrows (?!?!)

Are you doing anything for Jubilee weekend? Are you loving the patriotism wherever you go?
