Balancing Acts, The Queen and Miss Claire
|wall decor Harvey Nichols London
Put your hand up if life is feeling like a bit of a balancing act these days..or rather, take a seat.
Do you ever feel like you have so much to say that you are a loss for words?
My mind is in a bit of a muddle...but I will think about that tomorrow.
Here's what is on my mind...
|This afternoon on Regent Street, London
London is ablaze...in red white and blue.
It is so exciting to see, read and hear about the preparations
for the upcoming Diamond Jubilee celebrations this weekend.
Up to 1000 boats are arriving from around the UK, the Commonwealth
and the world for The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on Sunday June 3rd.
There are festivities happening all weekend long. Our neighbourhood
is combing forces for a street party on Monday. I have my baking orders. I can't wait!
I have been searching for commemorative keepsakes.
Deciding which ones has been a challenge. I have been trying to convince myself
that we really need this covered crown. It is just so sweet... but I can't decide.

I often wonder what The Queen must think of the celebrations in her honor.

The weather in London has been glorious...I call the photo below
'Taking Aim', just me having a giggle as I passed by.

I never tire of London street scenes...even the most ordinary
seems extraordinary to me.

Speaking of celebrations...
We are so very very proud of our Miss Claire.
She graduated from high school this past weekend,
a momentous occasion.
Her school is rich in traditions, one of them
is long white dresses for graduation. Months ago,
I groaned as we went in search of white dresses.
On Saturday...I took it all back. She was just beautiful.

Her school was the perfect setting for a garden party.
As I type away, I am thinking of Miss Clare and Miss Christine
who left at 4:30am this morning for a months trip around Europe.
They are starting their trip in Paris. Ah, to be a student again....
Claire packed with her signature blue ribbon on her sleeping bag.
She laughed when I took the photo...someday, it will be a fond memory for her.
On that note, dear mother here, is going to put her feet up and contemplate life.
I have the day off tomorrow which translates to paperwork and sorting out
our belongings for our move.
On Thursday, I am off to explore Windsor Castle.
Work hard, play hard...that is my motto. :)

I said at the beginning of this post I was at a loss for words.
Looking back, I guess I found them.
Best wishes to one and all.
