Jubilee!

So the Jubilee spirit finally managed to infect me and effort was actually made to go and see the damp spectacle of the wicker man beacon being lit. As you can imagine, the flames were just visible through the copious amounts of smoke.

One person in the crowd (not me) actually decided to have a go at singing the national anthem. Shame he didn't know any of the words or couldn't lay off the sarcasm.

Anyway, the fireworks were enjoyable despite the freezing cold and suitably red, white and blue (except when they weren't - there must have been a shortage) and were accompanied by a delightful car alarm chorus. There were even little parachutes that came down, though I have no idea what they contained.

Ah, happy days.
