It's been a bit hectic as of late here at OBWD base, we know we've been majorly slacking with blog posts as of yet and with views on the blog also having take a bit of a nosedive lately! We've only got ourselves to blame really, but after having gone through our own personal hardships in our education life, it is with great pleasure to announce we will be back on form effective immediately. Sorry to digress and steal Her Majesty The Queen's thunder, as this post was meant to be in commemoration of her reaching 60 years of majestic rule of the United Kingdom marking her Diamond Jubilee!
Myself (Tendai) one half of the OBWD duo viewed it as a great opportunity to go down and take pictures out and about in the capital whilst it basks in its historic great British cladding of flags and decor. The 2nd of June to 5th of June saw the UK enter a public holiday to celebrate the Life and Times of Queen Elizabeth II all beginning with a boat pageant on the Sunday, a lavish star-studded concert on the Monday and a royal procession through London on the Tuesday. It was all great fun and I tried to get to as many of the events as possible. Please enjoy the snaps provided as an extended commemoration and celebration o our Queen, and we also do apologise or the lateness of this post!
