Buckingham Palace

Well yesterday I got to see what a Buckingham Palace Garden Party is really like. Unfortunately I wasn't a guest I was only there as a steward, but I did have a great day, got to have a cucumber sandwich and can say I've been to the loo in the palace!
The only down side was dressing as a piece of rock, because I was representing Girlguiding UK I had to wear the lovely new formal stripy blouse, and it is hideous!
I saw the Queen, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles and Camilla, and quite a few other minor royals. I also got to see the chaos behind the food tent, there are people running about like crazy, huge boilers heating all the water for tea and more plates of sandwiches than you can believe!
I just have a few days to recover before I have my Queens Guide award presented, but tonight I'm taking my Rainbows out for a picnic, then on Thursday promised my housemates I'd go out for a drink with them.

Oh and I nearly forgot (test for my parents to see if they read this!) I have passed this year of my degree, all my results average out at a 2.1 which I'm very happy with, my result of 74 in evolution of terestrial ecosystems has left me very amazed with myself!

Its been a while since I last wrote anything for here, it seems like I've been really busy but I actually can't think I've done very much. I have worked quite a bit, which is rather good on the money front! I also got to see my parents for the first time since Easter (bad daughter!) and I also got the last of my Birthday presents!
I even got to go climbing yesterday afternoon with my family, after I finished work, at Birchens. I think I may actually be getting better, I redid some of the routes I had done with Lex before Christmas and found them all alot easier.
I also took my Rainbows out with one of the other Rainbows units on a Scavenger hunt, which they really enjoyed, we're off out for a picnic this week.
However first I have my trip to Buckingham Palace, but more about that when I've been. Also quite scarily I get my exams results tomorrow! Lex already has his and has passed them all (why they can't release them all together I have no idea).
Anyway I had best get up and make a start to the day!
