What a start to the jubilee weekend with a fabulous family get together last night in London.

Like for my Dad’s 80th, we gathered in the Mulberry bush on the South Bank for Georgina’s sweet 16 celebration.

It was great to be in London on the Queens jubilee weekend and it was fab to see all the decorations in place for the celebrations!

Only 5 days now to the start of Euro 2012 and, although I did not see the game, I believe England are in cracking form (2 more years of hurt, Jules Rimet still gleaming…..)!

Yesterday’s Euro 2012 team flag was the Republic of Ireland. The team we will start supporting when England fail to qualify due to the family roots!

Ireland, like Poland the day before, don’t have a great pedigree in this tournament, qualifying only once and failing at the group stages in 1988.

Today’s flag.

This afternoon, we were going off to London to watch the river pageant on the Thames, but decided against it after seeing the thousands of people thronging the banks!

There are now 54 days to the Olympics. Yesterdays event that includes a bar, box and pit was the Pole Vault.

Today’s event includes a whirl of one and half turns in a circle to get involved?

The highlight of the day will hopefully be the pageant (on TV), as no other country in the World can do something like this.
