Me on Tuesday | 20 September

It was a week where our everyday life ran alongside historic times.

Floral tributes to HM the Queen, Green Park
  • We seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time watching the BBC
  • The Brainy One took a car full of recycling to the recycling centre
  • The Best Friend and I went into town to see the flowers near Buckingham Palace. We then had dinner at my club and she stayed overnight with us
  • The glazier arrived to confirm my measurements for a number of double-glazed units we need replacing
  • We met my sister-in-love to walk our dogs together
  • The friend-who-is-like-my-brother came to spend the night before heading into town early
  • We watched the State Funeral of Her Majesty the Queen. Once the procession reached Hyde Park Corner, The Brainy One and I took Tilly and headed down to the stretch of the A4 within walking distance of our house. We timed it perfectly – less than five minutes wait and a small crowd.
A final farewell

  1. What lucky timing – it was definitely a day of tv watching here. I hope that the family now take a well deserved week away from the media to do their personal mourning in private. They have all had impeccable strength, how proud their mum/grandmother/great grandmother would have been of them. It was weird to have normal life continuing amongst all the official mourning wasn’t it?

  2. How lucky you are, with a good friend, to have been able to participate in some of the mourning of her Majesty. I was up just before 5am (our time) so I could watch the funeral coverage live. I spent the day watching & crying. I thought every detail was seen to. Both services, at the Abbey in London & at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, were perfect; a tribute to a most beloved Mum, Grandmother & Great Gan Gan & a most beloved sovereign.

    1. I did think of you when I was in town and yesterday during the funeral. I think that there is no doubt that we did Her Majesty proud. There is a lot to be said for leaving instructions!
