You know something's going on when there is a giant photograph of the Royal Family completely covering the Sea Containers House (not a small building!). Yup, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations are coming up very soon!
Just like the Royal Wedding last year, in the face of an offensive concept, I question why I have any interest in the Royal Family. I know the answer now - I love kitsch. I can't help but get into the mood when I see the shops full of Union jacks, bunting, corgi and QEII themed biscuits, cakes, mugs, plates and rubbishy knick knacks. I'm a sucker for useless knick knacks.
There's a bonus four day weekend in June too! I'm on holidays so that doesn't matter much to me though.
