Yesterday in Great Britain it was all about weddings, street parties. There was healing of old hurt, meeting new neighbours and ridiculously Britishly eccentric hats (Princess Eugenie won by a length) –
though there were a couple of women in the Abbey who looked like someone had just attached a cereal bowl to their head and a ‘lorra lorra buntings’ – as Cilla Black would say. It was an unexpectedly moving day, and this is my picture of the day. I took this photo at my Mum’s little street party. The star of the party was the buntings.
Once they were up the street completely changed and I think I have to start making my own buntings as they turn any place into a place of celebration. Thumbs up for buntings! oh and in case you were thinking it was all about birds there is also a picture of a reed bunting.
SONG OF THE DAY White Flag -Dido
Well there is a tenuous link. Flags! Again an unexpected song choice, as I think Dido sounds like she is being strangled when
she sings anything above a whisper, but uses a falsetto at the top other voice that is just a bit unique as her voice keeps flipping. This song is very haunting if you like a bit of maudling popppy pop. Stunned that the video has had 9 million hits on youtube. I am one person removed from Dido as she was a close friend of one of my friends. This song is a real haunter. “There will be no white flag upon my door..I’m in love..I always will”
