To all my freinds in the US.
I wish we could have a day, here in the UK, where patriotism was held in high regard. (Photo below is Belle during 2004 world cup 2 round)I hope that St Georges day (23rd April) is elected as that very day though. It only seems that patriotism is at a high when there is a football tournament, sometimes a rugby tournament or perhaps if Henman manages to get through to the third round at Wimbledon. Sprots related patriotism is fun but I want a day to reflect on being proud to be British other than for balls!
I want to feel that passion on a day for us - where we can sing Land of Hope and Glory at full belt without being imprisoned for causing a breach of the peace. I absolutely fall to pieces when I hear this piece of music - prmise you listen tot he end... its heart warming.
Time to lay aside terrorism (within our NHS - what the hell is that about!!) and tell Gordy Brown that he must do something about St Georges day (even if he is Scottish!). He would get my vote for that!
Anyway, lets celebrate with an overlay made with with Paisley's. Some digi bird asked me last week if I would make one - so I did xx
