    A time long gone being regurgitated by those that can afford to have a day off..... means nothing but alienation to me

    For me it has a bit of historical significance … but that’s about it. I remember the Silver Jubilee when our small village community came together and celebrated .., but it was celebration as a sort of excuse for having a good time … not really about the Queen … and that’s what seems to be happening now … it’s an excuse for a party … not much more than that really … but nothing wrong with that. 
    But I think that’s all these things have ever been to the majority of folk. 

    OH is working a lot of the long weekend … I’ll probably go for a good long walk … if the weather’s kind.

    A street party is a good way to interact with the neighbours but there is no relevance of the Queen and the Royal family to ordinary people.

    One of our neighbours is having a party and I'll go because our neighbourhood parties are always good

    It means an extra day off work for me so I am a happy bunny!

    I was born just a couple of days before she ascended the throne. That’s of vague interest to me, something to mention should the subject come up, but not really significant … I rather suspect there are quite a few of us 70 year olds 🤣

  • Two extra days in the garden and the weather looks promising! Other than that...

    I couldn’t tell you the first thing about it. Like the Wagatha wotsits and the FA cup final, it doesn’t register at all.
