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
