Queen Elizabeth and I celebrate 60 years...

What a weekend, not only was it a long weekend here in New Zealand ( Queens Birthday Weekend) it had a double meaning. This year 2012 is the celebration of Queen Elizabeth II, 60 years on the throne, and of just the same importance, or perhaps, more importance is my celebration of turning 60.

So it got me thinking how would I compare my birthday to the Queens celebration, well there is no comparison, my birthday was by far more important....  after all do you think she had a cake like this?

Home made Vanilla Lemon cake with butter icing and decorated with M&M's..
I doubt it, she probably had to share her cake with hundreds of people.

Or was she able to go for a walk along the beach with her favourite pooch?

I don't think so..

And what about joining her daughter for a photo walk of a local waterfall and capturing a view like this?

Wearing nothing but a pair of paint spattered, old track pants?

No way, instead she had to get all dressed up, travel down the Thames with hundreds and thousands of people wishing her well, she had to go to a concert put on just for her and endure all those fireworks at the end..

She certainly looked beautiful and happy..

Congratulations HRH, you certainly had a celebration worthy of you, just as I had a celebration worthy of me

Have a great week everyone - Angela xx
