Let the Parties Begin

London is awash with flags in preparation for the Jubilee Weekend celebrations. Today there will be a 41 gun salute. Sunday is the big flotilla where more than a 1,000 boats will travel down the Thames. Streets are closed off for parties. Even Piccadilly will be closed. Monday there will be a big concert outside Buckingham Palace. Tuesday will be a parade along Whitehall and Pall Mall.

A wee damper on the events is the weather. I guess we will be singing "long may she rain over us".



Now if you are around Putney to see the flotilla, pop along to The Exchange Shopping Centre. You'll find a crown there filled with jewels. If you guess the correct number you are in to win your very own diamond ring.

I hope you enjoy it. It's cold and rainy in Stockholm.

It sounds like this weekned would have been a good time to be staying in exactly the same flat I stayed in the last time I was in London. It was located on Shad Thames with a balcony right over the Thames. A perfect place for viewing the flotila.

I was just browsing through CDP and your photo for day stood out. You're certainly in the right place for this historic celebration. Enjoy!

Long may she RAIN over us? Mo!

London has two huge events this summer with the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. Is anyone getting any work done?
