The Queens lost handbag

Hello again Everyone ,Did you watch the match? England beat Ecuador 1 -0 .We watched it ...well some of us did!..... I was sitting at the computer,and Maurice kept drawing my attention to it ....Ooh look Jan ..look,so I did ! and saw the goal,and then I saw it again,David Beckham is a clever fellow,I saw him score that goal from every angle......about six times but he actually only  scored once !

We kept the TV  on and after the football match.Was 'The Childrens Party at the Palace ',it was a celebration of childrens books,the shows highlights included a specially written play called 'Who has stolen the the Queens handbag?'and featured more than 80 classic literary characters,Thomas the Tank engine ,came in with Sophie Dahl,whose Granfather Roal Dahl had written The Big Friendly Giant,for her ,The Blue Peter team were ,The famous five complete with Timmy the dog ,Enid Blyton was well represented with Noddy and friends ,there was Alice in wonderland and all the characters ,Beatrix Potter characters ,Robin Hood,PeterPan ,Cruella DeVille was on the trail of some corgis !....and so many others,The theme running through was to find the royal handbag, because it contained Her Majestys glasses ,without which she couldnt read her speech (cant help thinking if she'd gone to spec savers they would have given her a spare pair ,but then there wouldnt have been this lovely story! ) The programme Crimestoppers got involved and the handbag was found,The Queen and Duke came onto the stage and was presented with her handbag by Tracy Beaker ,The Queen opened up her bag,pulled out her specs held them up in the air with a cheeky grin , (playing along ,just as a good Granny does ?)Then went on to thank everyone for a lovely Birthday performance ,and point out to the children,what a wealth of enjoyment knowledge etc was to be gained from reading ,and God Bless her do so agree .

All this took place in the palace grounds and they were blessed with a lovely day ,There were thousands (well it seemed like it )of Children and their familys and it was obvious they had enjoyed them selves ,They ended singing Happy Birthday to you ,to her Majesty with such gusto....I hope this entry works I took the pictures off the television.........With Lots of Love and

Heehee, no tennis neck LOL !!!  I wanted to watch that - the party that is not Mr Beckham - but I had to bow to Rob not wanting to and the only other telly I could have watched it on was in the kitchen with nowhere to sit, LOL! I wonder if Her Majesty does go to SpecSavers lol? Nah, they go to her!!!

Beckham's goal was a good one ~ That was a neat idea taking pictures off the TV of the Party the Queen gave the children I didn't see it but it looks like they all had a good time ~ Ally

I think it was a good idea to put on a Party at the Palace for the children. It gives the kids something great to talk about and remember Her Majesty.

Congratulations to England winning the match against Ecuador. I think David Beckham is a great footballer but why do footballers get paid thousands of pounds for kicking a ball about? I thought the Beckhams' lavish party was a great way to raise money for various charities xxx

No didn't see the match, Andy doesn't like football either so he never had it on when I went over to remind him about Dr Who! Glad the kids had a good time at the palace. Jeannette xx

The Queen's party sounds like a delightful day and a wonderful idea.  I didn't know that the Queen would play along with something like that.  It warms my heart to see her at a less formal occasion.  It looks like she enjoyed herself.  England keeps moving along in the World Cup.  I'm cheering for them since the USA played so poorly and were eliminated early on.

Hiya Jan,
I haven't watched the Children's Party yet, I have recorded it. It sounds as though I will enjoy it. I might save it onto a DVD for Children to watch in years to come. My son-in-law Lee and his daughter Kayleigh, who belong to a brass band, were in the gardens playing to the guests as part of the entertainment before the show started.
Regards Dan.

Hi Jan!

That was a cute party!  
Vacation Bible School is over and we made it through Isaac! He only had one "time out".  He needed more, but he is such a good natured little guy...doesn't whine or cry....just doesn't do what he is told.  He just grins and goes faster!

Hugs!
Darlene
