This is a picture of my Mum enjoying the Queen's Coronation festivities in her village back in June 1953. That's her on the far left front of the photo with her friends, looking very cute, she was 12 at the time...
We went off to Suffolk for the weekend, the Union Flag was everywhere :)
Dusty the dog was recovering from a bee sting, but had time to watch the rabbits
and enjoy the fish stalls
|me with our picnic and "red, white & blue" outfit|
|somehow red, white & blue french fancies just seem wrong!|
and we had Proms by the Sea, which would have been awesome had it been warm & sunny, as it was we left after an hour & half as it bucketed it down & Dusty wasn't for hanging around...
but the Spitfire made her entrance & swooped & dove for us before the rain came
It was a great event though, let's hope they do something similar next year perhaps, just for fun?
We also went to a vintage fair, which was fabulous, but it was tooo busy if you know what I mean - you know when there's soooo many people in a tiny area - for me it just gets too difficult to look & I get 'swamped' by all the people. Still, I picked up a few fab things, a great patriotic silk scarf (that I wore right away)...
and some really lovely bakelite buckels that look like sweeties :)
We had a great, relaxing weekend, and enjoyed watching all the Queen's activities on the tv. Here's to the next decade your Majesty. x
