TYM informed me with a hearty chuckle that the hip way to refer to the events of last weekend was the "Platy Jubes".....I feel so much better for knowing that I'm now down with the cool kids😆 Despite having allowed all the celebrations to pass me by [bar the paper Union Jack flag that my Republican son erm "liberated" from a pub in Surrey😉 having enjoyed a few sherbets out with his mates] I did want to capture the flavour of some of it as we'll never experience the like of it again in my lifetime and these historic moments are so fleeting. Having decided to walk across the town to see my friend WW rather than driving as I usually would it seemed to present the perfect opportunity to take a few images. I've included a range of the things I found. One of the town centre pubs went as far as to have its whole ceiling repainted in red, white and blue! Many went for the traditional decorations, but I secretly rather enjoyed those that injected a dollop of humour....mad eyed Royals is much more my thing!
There had been plans to come home a different way and see a few more things, but WW is always good for coming up with things on the spur of the moment so we went out for a spot of unplanned exploring instead. More tomorrow!
Those crocheted corgis on the postbox look slightly crocodilianReplyDelete
I can't crochet so I can't really comment, but I can see where you're coming from. ArilxDelete
You find some interesting and fun things to photograph. Thank you.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad that you enjoy them. ArilxDelete
Great photos. Another blogger said she was done when she heard festivities referred to as "Platty Jobs" as she spelled it.ReplyDelete
I must admit I did roll my eyes a bit when I heard it too! ArilxDelete
I love those little 'toppers'. The crown is cute, but the queen with her corgis is my favorite. I wonder if she gets to see these things?ReplyDelete
There is talk of a book of photographs of the toppers being compiled so we shall have to see. ArilxDelete
