Terrific Tuesday & Wednesday Wag.

Yesterday The Queen and the Country celebrated 100 years of the Royal Air Force, which is close to my heart as my father served in the Air Force during WWII.  There was a Memorial Service at Westminster Abbey in the morning with several members of the Royal Family attending, followed by the presentation of New Colour to the Air Force by the Queen in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace, followed by the biggest flypast ever.

The RAF Squadrons spelling out RAF 100 in the Grounds of the Palace.

Watching the whole event made me very proud to be British and to have the connection with the RAF.

Today DH and I went to see a show case of the work done by Youngest this year, his final year at college before he goes off to Uni or something else!!!!!  We not only saw his work but work by the other students and it was all very good and of a high quality.  I am sure they will all do well with their final marks.

Today, of course, is Wednesday Wag but Treacle was in all day on her own as we were out but probably a good thing for her as it has been very warm today.

Still watching the wonderful tennis matches but so sorry to see Roger Federer go out but great for Kevin Anderson to be in the semi-finals.  It really has been an open Open this year with lots of different names coming to the fore.

Tomorrow is house jobs day and I am also going to go to the gym for the first time in over a year and as you know it is never that day or the next when you feel it, it is the day after that so probably by Saturday I won’t be able to move, tee hee!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Hugs, Susie xx

    What wonderful traditions you have in the UK. I always have fun watching/reading up on the different events that go on across the pond! I need you to explain something to me…what is the difference between college and university in England? Here, college refers to a post-high school place of higher education that offers 2 (Associate’s) and 4 (Bachelor’s) year degrees. Universities offer 4 year undergraduate degrees (Bachelor’s) as well as post-graduate degrees (Master’s and Doctorates). Your school system has always baffled me!! Glad you enjoyed the students’ presentations!!
