I hadn't really mentioned the Queen's Diamond Jubilee River Flotilla and Concert from last week. The river cruise was good to watch - although the BBC's coverage was rather inane at times. The concert at Buckingham Palace the next night was brilliant though. I had tears rolling down my cheeks with pride - especially when will.i.am and Jessie J sang I Gotta Feeling. Always gets me that song. The fireworks at the end were pretty special too.

I think I must have been worn down by all the pageantry - even I was feeling a tincy bit patriotic. I'm sure it'll pass.
