I've been mighty busy these last 2 weeks what with returning to work and school, having Governor meetings to minute and generally getting myself back into the swing of things but all work and no play as they say makes you a dull boy (girl).
Back in April Ian bought tickets for Proms in the Park. It's something I've been looking forward to for quite some time. So off we trot with picnic blanket and basket in hand (courtesy of M&S at Marble Arch) and into Hyde Park we went.
we chatted and ate our picnic and had a glass of pear cider whilst we waited for the event to start, how very civilised we are :-)
I was gobsmacked to see 40,000 people were behind us when this came up on the big screen, oh wow!
At 10:30pm we connected up with The Royal Albert Hall to sing and wave our flags to Land of Hope and Glory. I was in my element and proudly sang my little heart out. I cannot express here how wonderful this event was and would recommend anyone to get themselves tickets, grab their picnic and just have a jolly good time. We met some really lovely people, 3 couples who came down from Durham, a mad Irish lady who loved a tipple and the most interesting of all was Paul, who was Kylies No.1 fan and who danced away with me to her song Spinning Around (I will now have fond memories everytime I hear this song being played)
So here's to next year, we've decided to make this little trip a yearly tradition.
All together now, Land of Hope and Glory, Mother of the free......
