Today has been a bitty one.
It’s the extra bank holiday to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. Although they seem to have muddled the months and years about this – Queen Elizabeth II actually ascended to the Throne on 6 February 1952 but the Coronation was actually 2 June 1953. So I can’t help feeling they’ve done this a year early.
Perhaps we’ll get to do it again next year.
Got up earlier than planned and did a few of the chores I should have done yesterday. So I now have something to wear for work tomorrow. Which is a start. And the kitchen isn’t quite the bombsite it was.
Then off to Prestbury – a village of premiership footballer houses – and it seems rather odd straw-stuffed dolls strewn across the village. Anyway, we went there to ring a peal of Jubilee Surprise Major on the bells of St Peter’s church, which took a shade under 3 hours. It’s the first tower-bell peal I’ve rung since January 2007. Anyway, bells were nice, striking on the whole was OK and it was successful.
Here’s the link to the peal record
Then back towards home, stopping off at Wickes to look at bathroom furniture (well it is a bank holiday at the end of the day).
2007 seems to be a featuring year actually – it was the time when I discovered a wide range of allergies brought on by a number of ‘life events’ (I think that’s the polite way of putting it). Anyway, this bank holiday I’ve discovered I am able to tolerate clementines and bananas. So that’s good too.
And now an evening of building plans and fitting bathroom furniture into small spaces that don’t currently exist.
