What a shame that the rain poured down in London, damping the Jubilee festivities. Not that I’m a Royalist – more the sort of person who says ‘ any reason for a party’.
The day was reminiscent of Coronation day – I remember it being wet and cold. The one thing that had the most impact on me was not the tiny B&W neighbours’ television we went to watch but that their house was backwards! Our houses were semi-detached so the layout of theirs was a mirror image to ours – a very strange experience for me.
Something a bit regal today – crowns.
