Cheers, Liz.

Happy Anniversary, your Maj! Or, alternatively, a good excuse for a long weekend off and a pint of Old Frottingham’s Frankly Peculiar…

Readers from outside this United Kingdom might be bemused to learn that the whole country’s going to be incommunicado for the next few days.  Offices are going to close, shops will shut early and the weather will do it’s level best to comply and be dreadful.

It’s a bank holiday, don’t you know, which is fortuitous as it gives the desk-dwellers amongst us a nice day or two off.  On top of that, we’re getting an extra day off to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – it’s been 60 years since she ascended to the throne and decided to have just the one facial expression.

Gurning, it’s a real thing – Wiki it.

I kid, I kid – there are possibly two, now.  It’s a whole progress thing.

People far more devoted to the idea of monarchy than I am are just bursting to share ideas on what to do during the long weekend – the BBC has a downloadable PDF here which will help the undecided to find activities relevant to their interests.

The only reigning matriarch that I can get excited about…

As for yours truly, I shall be doing my best to stay clear of the hostilities and spending the best part of Friday enjoying Ridley Scott‘s latest foray into galactic terror – there’s no better way to celebrate the holiday than jumping out of your seat as xenomorphic miscreants fly at you in 3D.
