It took me too long to add this category, but I need to have something to balance the pet hates, and there are so many things to be grateful for.
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”
