After a couple of weeks of Nordic weather, long days and lots of daylight, coming back to torrential rain in England is a little disappointing – but not unexpected. Even Queen Liz couldn’t hold off the rain as she took her jubilee boat ride down The Thames.
I’m no more or less of a monarchist than the next man. The Queen is another thing about England that just is. Like driving on the left and spelling words with extra letters to everyone else. However, watching the red, white and blue faithful soaked to the skin as they sang and waved their flags was an entertaining spectacle – sat on my sofa, in my warm and dry house.
