Bird Blog: Feeling proud to be British! - 8th June 2012
The hot topic that has been talked and tweeted about all week is the 4 day Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Whether you joined in the Bank Holiday festivities or not, it would have been difficult to miss the coverage, which was broadcast by the BBC & ITV.
The Diamond Jubilee concert was a highlight for many, however a live event rarely comes without a couple of slip ups; perhaps it would have been worthwhile someone having a quiet word with Will.I.Am and Stevie Wonder to point out that it wasn’t actually the Queen’s birthday before they sang and shouted it…..ahem!
And very well done to the 16 year old St John Ambulance cadet who, remarkably with the eyes of the world upon her, managed to remain calm and composed when she seemed to lose her place during her reading at the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s. We all held our breath until she found her place again and she carried on perfectly. So if anyone is looking for a public speaker in the future we can recommend someone….
Not surprisingly an event of this size and scale will always have its critics, but the amount of positive coverage far outweighs the negative and, all in all, we think Prince Charles summed up the nation’s mood when, during his speech, he thanked the Queen for making us proud to be British. Here’s to the next Jubilee!
Whilst most of the Bird team were busy tucking into Victoria sandwich cakes, coronation chicken and enjoying the extended Bank Holiday, Claire was busy putting us all to shame by cycling 26 miles around Manchester, where she took part in the Greater Manchester Bike Ride. She completed the course in less than 2 hours – well done Claire, we’ll probably have cakes and drinks to celebrate!
So now the Jubilee is over our attention turns to football as the Euros kick off tonight. The boss has generously allowed us to finish early on Monday so we don’t miss England’s first game…Thanks Chris! (although the cynics amongst us may say it’s because he wants to watch it too.) Good luck to England and the Republic of Ireland, let’s see how far we can get!
In other news, the Euromillions has reached a whopping £126 million rollover today so we thought there was no better time to start the office syndicate again. We’ll all be spending the weekend dreaming of how we will spend our winnings…until we check the numbers on Monday and come back down to earth with a huge thud…
That’s all from us, have a good weekend and we’ll catch you next week…erm, that is unless our lottery numbers come up tonight….
