Learn Something New Every Day: 11th September


Well, this is my rather patriotic looking page! A friend and I queued for tickets to the Last Night of the Proms yesterday. The rain held off which was good as we had to sit in line from about ten in the morning until seven in the evening when they let us in. We were 130 and 131 in the queue so we thought had a pretty good chance of getting tickets.

Awesome day: the time flies by, we ate tons of houmous having both brought the same things for a picnic (more forward planning needed there, but who doesn't love houmous?) and waved our flags. Loads. Oh, and we sang, too. A chap from the Telegraph took our photographs as well but I haven't seen them in use. I gave him my email and made him promise to send me a copy but you never can tell with the press!

And what did I learn? I learned the proper way up to hang a Union Flag. If you hang it upside down, you are indicating that you are in distress. Although how anyone can tell from a distance I don't know.

I hope everyone's having a lovely weekend - I am!

P.S. I REALLY want a copy of the pictures he took - they were amazing, what with him being a professional and all. I should have explained to him about my scrapbook.

  6. As usual I enjoyed your border and this is a gorgeous page. It's a different style and would look really good framed and on the wall.
