I have just returned from The Shrewsday Jubilee Bash.
And the stars of the party, as always, were the children.
I have included a slideshow so you can catch some of the action; and audio direct from the Shrewsday celebration.
Audioboo is my soundcloud of choice, and editing does not happen there: it’s all effectively as if it were live.
So, if you dare, folow these links to listen to Al, live and unplugged.
For an interview with the children try this link.
For Al’s personal message, try here.

Sounds as though you had a wonderful time. Enjoy the rest of the now nearly over weekend…..
Thanks- you too, Myfanwy 🙂
Al’s message would melt the queens heart. Adorable.
Very cute (between the raspberries) 😀
I am in the midst of listening to Phil and your mother sing, and I am just over the moon that your mother is there and enjoying herself. Please give them all my best, and enjoy this big day.
Thanks Andra 🙂 I’ll pass that on!
Here, here for the children of the Shrewsday Jubilee Bash, and their auntie and mum, of course. What a delightful treat to hear these many, many miles away, Kate, made even more so by hearing your mom give a shout out.
To Miss Maddie, I’m with you, dear girl. I love corgis too!
Maddie was thrilled to hear your message, Penny! Thank you. Technology is so strange: was recording this just a few hours ago and it has travelled to another continent.
“I’ll be your friend …” Oh, God bless that boy!
😀 He comes out with a punchline every time, Cindy! Unfailing! Al had a lovely time…
What fun to hear all those voices. First time I’ve heard them, and yours, Kate. Now I feel I’ve met you.
And by the way, I can’t even imagine what London must be like with both the Jubilee and, very soon, the Olympics. Rather chaotic, I imagine.
Voices tell us so much about people, don’t they, PT? Lovely to have the luxury of including them.
And yes: let us hope the organisers of the Olympics are as good as the organisers of the jubilee: we are rather enjoying ourselves and the sense of occasion, I think.
Those audios are so cute, Big Al is something else indeed!! 🙂
He is 🙂 Life is never dull!
lol, pin the tail on the Corgi!
Good, isn’t it? Twinned with Felix’s game- guess the name of the corgi….
You have really enjoyed the celebrations. 😉
“I’m sorry I blew a raspberry at you”! – a classic line if ever I heard one, Kate!
The boy has a feeling for punchlines, Tom 😀
Your family are delightful. Old and young together enjoying themselves and each others company – that is what the true celebration is all about. Couldn’t hear a woof from Macaulay! Big Al lives up to what we all expect of him.
He does: and now you know that he is just walking material. Practically everything he says makes you want to giggle 🙂
“I’m sorry I blew a raspberry at you”
Dead on the floor of the cute.
I know, Cameron The Queen will accept his apology, I am sure…
Loved the slide show, the audio clips . . . and the food.
Now, I’m HUNGRY for a scone with clotted cream and jam. And some nice sharp English cheddar.
At first, I thought they were playing Pin The Tail on MAC! 😀
I’m not sure he would stand for that, even tempered as he is, Nancy 🙂 I wish you were here. I have loads of home made scones left over, and jam, and cream.
We watched the Queen’s Concert last night . . . a few scones would have made it a perfect evening.
Lovely – you all have wonderful English accents and sound very happy (nice singing too 😉 ). Pin the tail on the Corgi was a stroke of genius for a jubilee celebration game – woof!
Indeed 😀 It was enjoyed by all, Gabrielle!
What fun it was listening to the children and to Big Al. They all made me feel very hungry. “Oh Queen, see you later”. 🙂
I know: a casual attitude to our monarch, wasn’t it?
This is just pure gold, Kate! I listened to every word and just imagined being an invited guest to your party! I loved hearing all of your voices…it’s so personal. And the children are so delightful, of course. I love this iPhone app, too…I must see if I can figure this out to capture my own little interviews. Thank you for sharing this. These dear ones were part of a big piece of history. They’ll be so glad you recorded it! oxo Debra
I do recommend the app, Debra. It is a fabulous find. It works with or without wireless, so you can use it anywhere. We are all very vocal so its suits us just fine…thank you for attending 🙂 I just wish I could have given you a scone, jam and cream…
The dog and I, rather than the Queen and I, seem to share the same enthusiasm for Jubileeing:)
😀 Says it all, Roger. Caption the dog if you dare, It’s something along the lines of “Get me out of this union jack. Now.”
What a great four day weekend!
We had a lovely time, Tandy!
He is adorable! Got to mention him in my post today. 🙂
Thanks for the mention! Big Al is an interesting interview subject, but never one to come out with the expected.
It sounds like a wonderful weekend!
Al has his priorities right – pudding! I’m sure QE would approve. So sweet.
Pin the tail on the Corgis? I’m loving it but not as much as Al’s message.
